Marvel Casts Captain Marvel

8 Aug , 2016  

537ba61b764b4

The name of Captain Marvel has been held by a varying cast of characters which transcends an admirable range of cultures.  Male and female, black and white, human and alien, gay and hetero — the title could arguably be regarded as the most culturally diverse in the comic book medium. Currently in the comics, Marvel’s eponymous title is born […]

Every week, usually on Wednesday, sometime between leaving work and going to bed, I watch, spellbound, as my gods save the world. It’s my holy day.  Wednesday.  My Sabbath.  And nary a week goes by that I don’t remember it.  It’s a sacrosanct ritual, complete with a pilgrimage, a feast, and a bit of sacrifice.  […]

20 Jul , 2016  

Marvel-vs-DC-Wallpaper

Back in the 80s (Did I really just sound like an old man?), I fell headlong into comics in a big way.  My favorites out of the gate included Omega Men, Swamp Thing, Hellblazer, and Sandman.  Offbeat books, to be sure.  But to this day, I consider each to have provided some of the greatest […]

This Doesn’t Work Both Ways (Part 1)

18 Jul , 2016  

Cap disassembled

It’s time for a paradigm shift. My partner and I started One Geek World with only a vague idea: We wanted an outlet to talk about all of the things that we love, from movies to television to toys to comic books. But especially comic books. Comic books, to us, were the root of it […]

It might be considered absurd to suggest that a mere comic book could, in the course of a single issue, create so much as a hiccup in the public radar. Count on Captain America to do just that.

Hail HYDRA? Hail no!

Captain America is HYDRA?

When Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 hit newsstands this week, Geeks around the world cried out in fury! No one, and I mean no one was happy with the stunning ending.
