With camp on the horizon, we had a chance to talk to Seanan McGuire about her own geek loves and camp experiences, plus The Girl in the Green Silk Gown!
Are you a fan a vampires and the urban paranormal worlds filled with supernatural creatures? Do you hate starting a series in the middle and feeling like you’re behind? If you answered yes to one or both of those questions, then you’ll want to pick up Chloe Neill’s latest. She has returned to the world of the Chicagoland Vampires with the first in a brand-new series, Wild Hunger, available from Berkeley Publishing on August 14.
Last year, the “D” was noticeably absent from Comic Con International: San Diego. This year, he’s making his presence known, and “coming harder.” He is all over the convention to let you know the Deadpool 2 Super Duper $@%!#& Cut will be released on digital August 7 and 4K Ultra HD & Blu-Ray on August 21.
Despite being a huge fan of DC Comics and related properties, when DC Universe was announced, I was skeptical. After all, how many streaming content services do people really need? But now, after previewing the content that will be available, I'm convinced it will be worth the expense. I know I'll be subscribing and eagerly awaiting the launch this September.
Here’s where we share what our specific highlights are and where you might be able to run into us, your friendly neighborhood Geek Girl Pen Pals, if you’re making the nerd pilgrimage to San Diego Comic Con 2018.
We are now just over a week away from Comic-Con International 2018. That means the full programming schedules have been released for the convention. This is certainly a shaping up to be a very different year for the convention: just look at the Hall H and Ballroom 20 programming. With HBO and Marvel (mostly) skipping the annual event, there are large gaps of what generally filled the big rooms. Here are some of the highlights for this year.
In 1952, Sparrow Hill Road was the site of Rose Marshall's death. Rose has been walking the ghost roads ever since and she's been called [...]
The amazingly talented Bill Hader (how can you not love the infamous Stefon?) stars in (and produces and directs and writes for) the dark comedy [...]
It’s been four years since we’ve seen a new escapade from Harry Dresden in the paranormal filled Chicago, Illinois created by Jim Butcher. But as of June 5, 2018, fans can dive back into that world with Brief Cases, a new short fiction collection from the Dresden Files.
Ten years after the events of the first film, the Kaiju return in Pacific Rim Uprising with a new deadly threat that reignites the conflict [...]
As a huge DC Comics fan, WonderCon had so much to see and do (more than I could get to) and I was in comic heaven. It's a good time to be a DC fan (just don't talk to me about the movies, okay?). And with the Black Label books set to release around August, there's bound to be loads more great announcements coming out of DC Comics. What are you most excited about seeing?
Another year, another WonderCon in the books. WonderCon has always been one of my favorite conventions and this year was no exception. WonderCon is the little sibling of giant behemoth Comic-Con International: San Diego. Once upon a time it was in the San Francisco Bay, but since 2012 has taken advantage of the space and scheduling offered by the Anaheim Convention Center (apart from 2016 when it took place in Los Angeles due to construction at the Convention Center). The programming is excellent. The cosplay is epic. The exhibit hall is huge. And most importantly, the creator’s attending the convention are welcoming and accessible. Read on for some highlights from WonderCon 2018.
It feels fitting to be writing a review of Pitch Perfect 3 right after celebrating the 5th Geek Girl Pen Pals birthday celebration. Why? Because of community! Pitch Perfect is about a group of young women who over time discover the importance of their relationships with each other. This third and final installment of the movies takes to heart that message of chosen family and the support and trust we give to our chosen family as we continue to move forward in life.
March 6 is a big day in the world of fantasy fiction. Two fabulous new entries, Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs (Alpha & Omega #5) and Lake Silence by Anne Bishop (The World of the Others), will be released into the world. Both are definitely worth reading.
