As we once more stroll through the hallowed halls of the Evil Geeks Art Gallery, I would like to remind you of the importance of the classics. Sure, many of the subjects we’ve studied in the past have been from the Post-Post-Modern era of pop culture art, or POPOMOPOP, as we call it in the industry, but our artists’ styles have been undoubtedly shaped by the classics. Perhaps my personal favorite comic book cover of all time, today’s featured painting is undeniably a classic.
Hey there Evil Geeks! Here’s a quick info graphic from our friends at BeautyFlash about some quite remarkable super hero skin. Sadly, not the Skin of Generation X fame, pictured above, but you will learn some equally fascinating stuff about the skin of some other heroes and what exactly makes them so tough and durable. To view the full sized infographic or to check out some more info on BeautyFlash, head over to their website.
This week we’ve got Marlene from the website I Like Comics Too in the Evil Lair to chat with Big Evil, C-Mart and Undies of Wondy about all things geek. We start our conversation about the recent issues that she’s had with a certain prop-maker out there who owes a lot of people a bunch of stuff…from there the conversation turns to fun and we discuss comics, cartoons, TV, and even My Little Pony and the Bronie culture…trust me, Shit Gets Real! Anyway, make sure to visit Marlene’s site over at I Like Comics, Too! and enjoy the show!!!

Yup, Lilith is back after a mere two hours here to bring you my review of the recently talked about movie Interstellar. I have been being bombarded by reviews from various other websites I follow on social media, ranging from the science sites like I Fucking Love Science to the more nerdy sites like Den of Geek. I had even read about it a couple months ago on a website reviewing movies that will probably be potential Oscars nominees, so I was ready for this movie for a while. I also read that it was an important movie for director (and writer and producer) Christopher Nolan as it seemed to complete a trilogy of personal films for him including The Prestige, Inception, and now Interstellar. So without further ado I bring you my spoiler-laden review of the movie.
Hey geeks, I have insanely good news for you. You are going to be blessed with back to back Lilith Assisi articles today! Yes, I know that just made your day. And my first article is a review of this past weekend’s Walking Dead. I personally thoroughly enjoyed last week’s episode Self Help, so figured it would be difficult for me to like this week’s episode as much as last week’s. Sadly my fears were confirmed. It was a decent episode, though certainly some things that irked me. Continue forward for my spoiler and rant filled review! You have to give me some leeway, I have after all never written a Zombie Round-Up before and being the zombie aficionado that I am I might have to go all out for this review.
Like most children of the 1980’s I consumed all things Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles related. The cartoon, the toys, the video games…pretty much anything I could get my hands on except the comic books. I was just a little too young to know that there was life before the animated kids show. When I found out that IDW acquired the comic book rights to the original Mirage Studio output I knew I had to get in there and check it out.
I started with the lavish Ultimate Edition Vol. 1 hardcover containing the first seven issues of the run plus the Micro-Series #1 – Raphael (a self-contained story that fits in between issues #3 and #4). The art is blown up and printed in its original black and white state and after each issue there is a write up by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird discussing what was going on at that point in their publishing life. Plus, there’s almost a page by page write up about the art from the issue and the layouts. It’s a hefty ticket price of $50 dollars for 8 issues, but it’s a wealth of information.
