Since I am on a Doctor Who kick this week why not bring you one of the coolest, and creepiest, alien species from the series to you this weekend. The Vashta Nerada, instilling fear of the dark in to all cultures for good reason. These monsters have made me buy a nightlight.
Seasons Greetings Geeks!
The holidays wouldn’t be the Holidays without the Animated Show to bring you a ton of nostalgia to go with your eggnog! So for the second year in a row we bring you our “HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR!” Basically, Big Evil, Greekimus, C-Mart, and Undies of Wondy sit down and chat up some of their favorite holiday specials through the years. We did it last year and missed a HUGE Special! Anyway, enjoy the holiday season and make sure to take the time to watch a few of these classics!

Hey nerds, sorry it’s been so long since I have written. But I am going to give you a good old opinion-laden post today to make up for it. Your favorite Lilith might have been too busy to write the last two weeks, but that doesn’t mean I stopped enjoying all things geek. And in my attempt to catch up to the legendary Whovians among the Evil Geeks I have successfully watched the first four seasons (well, the first four of the reboot that is) of Doctor Who. That means I have completed up until the last of the David Tennant season, but have not gotten to partake in any Matt Smith or Peter Capaldi episodes yet. What it does mean is that I have gotten to know Martha Jones, Rose Tyler, and Donna Noble, as well as some other companions, pretty well. And like a true Evil Geek, I have opinions to be expressed. So here you are folks (with some associated spoilers as well).
We want to see your best cosplays! The Evil Geeks are emerging from their Evil Lair to check out the awesome cosplays of our followers. Submissions for our first ever contest are running from now all the way through midnight on January 2nd, 2015. Once submissions are closed, we will then put up an album of all the awesome cosplays we’ve received! There will be two winners chosen. One winner – who received the most likes on their photo in the cosplay album on our Facebook page, and a second winner – chosen by the Evil Geeks themselves based on craftsmanship and general awesomeness. There will be ACTUAL AWESOME PRIZES FOR BOTH WINNERS – including geek themed swag, and both winners will be featured and interviewed on our podcast ‘Transmissions from the Evil Lair’.
I didn’t care about Tarzan a year ago. He seemed infinitely uninteresting to me. Some savage who swung through the jungle beating his chest and yelling? That’s the reason I never joined a frat. Why would I want to read about it? I had though picked up The Big Book Of Adventure stories, almost 900 pages of pure pulpy goodness. Mainly in the form of short stories, it also reprinted the entire Tarzan the Terrible novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. After doing some research I found out that it was the 8th book in the Tarzan series. I was intrigued enough to want to look into it, but didn’t feel right starting that far into it. So of course I went back to the start.
DC’s newest volume of Deathstroke is basically a nine-volt battery to the tongue. It’s not pleasant, and it’s more than a little unsettling. And yet for some reason, I find myself trying it again even though I know it’s terrible.
So, maybe I’m the only weirdo who intentionally runs electrical current through his face, but I know there are plenty of assholes out there who continue following this comic. As I mentioned in my review of the first issue, the buzz around the book was inexplicably positive. This time around it’s not quite so widely loved but much to my chagrin it is not universally reviled.
Just as confounding, in my eyes, is this book’s utter disregard for the continuity in which it exists. At the end of the last issue, we saw a rejuvenated Slade Wilson being all sexy after the mystical I-Ching resurrected his bullet-riddled mercenary ass. I commented in my write-up that I wasn’t sure if it was actually Deathstroke (it is) because he had black hair whereas young Slade Wilson was always shown to have blonde hair. Now, you may be saying “Kang, you dummy! This is the New 52 continuity, maybe Deathstroke is some swarthy raven-haired fellow in this version of DC’s history.”
