Comic Book Panel of the Day 5/22/15

Afternoon Geeks!

Today’s Panel of the Day comes from Justice League #38 from Geoff Johns & Jason Fabok and it’s pretty cool. I’m on my summer break so with that brings a ton of reading for me to catch up on all things going on and I have to say that I’m really impressed with Mr. Fabok’s work on the series. This arc is called The Amazo Virus, which was created by Lex Luthor and mistakenly released on the world. The virus effects both humans and metahumans and as you can see here turns them into somewhat hive-mind zombies.

This panel just stuck out to me in the arc, Batman’s gestures are almost puppet-like but the visuals on his face and everyone around are zombie-like. Imagine mind-controlled walkers! Here, check it out:

Justice League 38

This is only the 2nd arc that I’ve caught up on so far, but the Amazo Virus is a pretty cool read with some amazing visuals…Check it out!

Later Nerds!

A Collection Of Dave Steven’s Rocketeer Art

The Rocketeer has become a beloved character in the rich history of the American pulp genre. Creator, Dave Stevens claimed to not enjoy being an interior artist but preferred doing covers and it shows. I decided to collect some of my favorite Rocketeer covers and pinups Stevens did for the series. I think you’ll agree that this really allowed his design flair and figure work to really shine.

Pulp Corner: Men’s Adventure Magazine Covers

I’ve been the Evil Geeks curator for all things pulp. It’s a genre that I find unwaveringly fascinating. I think what I like the most about it is the adventure element of that era. Jim Steranko’s Raiders Of The Lost Ark concept art sums up visually what it is about it that makes me love it so much. When I first stumbled upon the men’s adventure magazines of the 1950’s and 60’s it was like finding a time capsule full of everything that made the genre great.

The magazine covers are full of absurd art with many reoccurring themes. Rugged men battling animals, scantily clad women captured and ready to be sacrificed deep in the jungle, nazi mad men torturing anyone that can get their hands on, aloof cowboys, war scenes etc. It’s all a bit gonzo in the best possible way. The headlines and the titles of the magazines are another thing you can marvel at. Many of these publications are incredibly sexist and obviously targeted for the men of the era so you certainly have to take it all with a grain of salt.

It has since become a bit of a hobby for me to track down these covers. I just find them endlessly entertaining and the amount that exist is staggering. So strap yourself in and get ready to go back in time as I share some of my favorites with you.

Evil Movie Reviews: Star Trek The Voyage Home and The Final Frontier

I’ve got a two for one today. Two reviews for the price of one! I’m quickly getting finished up with all the Star Trek movies, ready to move on to TNG if you ask me. I watched #4 and 5 this past week and want to tell you all about it! Especially since the 4th movie is considered one of the best of all the Star Trek films. Warning, spoilers to follow, but you probably should have already seen these films if you are a Trekkie.

Evil Geeks Art Gallery – It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Men Finale

Appreciators of fine art that we are here at the ever-growing Evil Geeks Art Gallery, no manner of media is beyond of grasp. Sure, we are renowned for our collection of priceless recreations of pop fiction’s treasured moments, but classic cinema, fashion, and most certainly television in today’s Golden Age. And with the finale of AMC’s stellar series Mad Men only a day away, we decided to commemorate our shared love for this fine filmic serial with a poster. A poster celebrating the eight years of fantastic programming to which we’ve been treated. Naturally, this job was not to be left to amateurs.
