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.
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) is fun and entertaining but largely stays away from the intensity of the main Avengers sequence without forgetting that larger world's context. It's the first Marvel movie since Infinity War and thankfully we are handed some lighter fare. If you're looking for a summer comic book movie flick with an ass-kicking female hero, this is the movie for you.
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 [...]
Here are IGGPPC, we like to turn the spotlight onto small, geeky businesses, especially those run by women. This week we're checking out FanFlaire, a super rad shop that sells pins and patches for some of our favorite geek loves. Let's get to know a little more about shop owner Sarah and her awesome business!

We've waited 14 years for this film: The Incredibles 2 opens this weekend to about as much anticipation as any Disney/Pixar sequel can have. And while audiences have been waiting over a decade for this one, it seems like Disney has finally decided to go all-in with the Incredible-Family: Disneyland's new "Pixar Pier" opens later this month with the signature featured ride, the "Incredicoaster", occupying a massive footprint on the retooled boardwalk. But enough about that-- let's talk about the movie! And don't worry: this is a spoiler-free zone.
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 [...]
From fashion to home decor there are a ton of products out there to choose from to make your life a little bit cuter. If [...]
I find Hogwarts Mystery to be an entertaining game, for what it is. You run out of energy quickly, unless you are willing to spend money, but honestly I don't mind games like this that I can play once or twice a day and feel like I'm enjoying them without spending hours of my life staring at my phone. That being said, there isn't anything "new" to it: it's pretty much just a retread, in a mildly interactive way.
Well. That really was something, wasn't it? If you've already seen Avengers: Infinity War, chances are you left the theater at least a little stunned. I was, too, until a few things clicked into place for me, and I want to share my thoughts with you on this. So let's chat about the ramifications of Infinity War, and what it might mean for part 2 coming in 2019.
