Greetings Evil Geeks! Recently, we’ve been doing a little digging around the Evil Lair and we’ve managed to turn up some exciting artifacts. To say that the Evil Lair is an ancient and mysterious place would be selling short the strangeness of the ancestral home of The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks. We actually bought the place off a group of retired Bothan spies, but those guys lived here for a REALLY long time before we got here though and they told us they got it on the cheap after there was a series of grisly Gorn murders committed in the sun room. Countless lab “accidents”, weapon misfires, prison riots, and demon infestations, have left several stratified layers of previous civilizations beneath the floorboards. After spending much of our formative years watching and constantly re-watching the Indiana Jones TRILOGY (because as you know, as far as C-Mart is concerned there are only three Indiana Jones movies, that’s it. No more, only THREE!!!), we feel that we’re pretty much experts in all there is to know about archaeology: punching Nazi’s before they melt, whiskey, chilled monkey brains, and occasionally digging something out of the dirt. On our most recent expedition to the bowels of the Evil Lair, we’ve managed to turn up some geek artifacts that we think folks will get a kick out of seeing.
Good Morning Geeks!
This weeks podcast is another Evil Movie Night where the Geeks take a look at the Sylvester Stallone classic Cobra!
My G.I. Joe knowledge and appreciation comes squarely from the 1980’s cartoon and its toy line. They were both a pivotal part of growing up for me. Once I got back into comics and found that new G.I Joe comics existed I felt I owed it to myself to check it out. I haven’t read the original Marvel stuff but I know it’s heralded as one of the best, but I wanted something current and something fresh. Watching the old cartoon now is a bit of a letdown, I wanted G.I. Joe for adults. I looked at what current publisher IDW had to offer and was confused by what seemed like endless crossovers between their 3 main books. I was just about give up when someone recommended starting with Cobra Vol. 1 by Mike Costa. They told me it was self-contained so that’s a good start. Plus, I don’t really care about G.I. Joe, I’m a Cobra man through and through.
