imageWhat’s going on, Evil Geeks!?!? We’re just about 1 month away from Deadpool, the first of MANY big comic book movies dropping this year.

5 Things They Had Better Get Right in the New Dead Pool Movie (with lots of GIFs)

Dead Pool 1988 Logo

I was skimming through headlines early this week in the wake of San Diego Comic Con, and I glimpsed an article about test footage for a planned Dead Pool movie featuring a previously unseen version of the character, reportedly more  in keeping with his traditional portrayal.  I guess the video was taken down before I got a chance to watch it but here are the five things we NEED to see in this remake of the classic 1988 installment in the Dirty Harry series.

The Evil Geeks Top 5 Rob Liefeld Covers

Liefeld Week, a never ending holiday of macho men, bad ass babes and weapons the world just isn’t ready for. We’ve discussed a great many things but there was nothing we were more excited for than to pick our top 5 favorite covers delivered from the master’s hand. It wasn’t easy to narrow it down, but somehow we did it.

Rob, we kid because we love! Here’s the thing, I don’t actually hate Liefeld’s art. I know it’s awful and he doesn’t have a child’s grasp on the anatomy of the human body, but I have some fun nostalgia from my childhood about it. With that said, I know it’s bad and I wouldn’t ever willingly buy anything he’s done. He’s already made a mint off me as a kid from trying to piece together the entire Extreme Studios line of comics he was behind for Image in the early 90’s. I’ll be showcasing here some of what Liefeld does best and other things that are considered the most Liefeldian.

5.) Youngblood #77 (March 2013)

This is the newest entry on my list (the only one that isn’t from his 90’s heyday) and a bit of a curveball. Believe it or not, I actually legitimately like this. I have no idea what’s going on though. Looks like Chapel is back from the dead (Again!) as a demon though this time? That minion behind him looks disturbing and menacing enough and dare I say that Badrock even seems to be slightly more proportionate?

Evil Geek Book Report – Deadpool: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

backgroundGreetings Evil Geekites, it’s been far too long since we’ve chatted about funny books, so I’m back today to right that terrible, terrible wrong.  You may be familiar with some of my past writings on Deadpool, so you know I’m certainly a fan of the character.  When used properly, I think he’s one of the most entertaining sights to see in the Marvel U and this latest story arc in the incredible run that Duggan and Posehn have scripted thus far is a perfect example of Wade being used exactly as he should be.  He’s not just an unending stream of jokes; he’s a man dammit… who just so happens to have an unending stream of jokes coming out of his mouth. Let’s dig a little deeper into the incredibly screwed up mind of Wade Wilson and discuss The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly by Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn, featuring art by Declan Shalvey.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Deadpool

Greetings Evil Geeks!  It’s Summertime, so that means sun, pools, BBQ’s, beaches, and a whole host of other outdoor activities…for most folks.  There are those of us who’d describe ourselves as “Avid Indoorsmen or Indoorswomen” for whom Summertime means spending hours on end in beautifully air-conditioned rooms, surrounded by flat screens and all the latest gaming technology.  In What’s Killing My Social Life This Week, we take a minute to examine all the latest and greatest games that are officially keeping us indoors, sun-averse,  and generally socially isolated.  Even in today’s world where we seem to have a new comic book or graphic novel adapted movie hitting theaters every week, it’s still kind of rare to get a superhero game.  This week’s topic of discussion is no ordinary superhero though, oh no.  We’re dealing with a whole new class of sort-of-hero.  Part scoundrel, part psycho, entirely f@#$ing badass! It’s the Regeneratin’ Degenerate. The Merc With a Mouth. The one, the only, the bat-shit crazy DEADPOOL!!!  Deadpool’s latest game from Activision and High Moon Studios just hit stores last Tuesday, and I think I’ve spent at least half of those past six days planted in front of my TV racking up a bigger body count that the black plague.  I’m an enormous Deadpool fan, so this game would’ve had to REALLY suck for me to hate it, but read on to get my honest impressions of the game!

Evil Geek Book Report – Deadpool #8

 

What’s going on Evil Geeks!?!?  Welcome back to an all-new Evil Geek Book Report!  You may have surmised from my constant reviewing of and praise for Deadpool, that I might just be a little bit of a Deadpool fan.  Guilty as charged!  Issue #8 of the new ongoing series kicks off a brand new story arc from the writing team of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, with art by Tony Moore.  The first story arc featuring zombie ex-Presidents was one of the best things I’ve read in a while, so this arc’s got some big shoes to fill.  How does it hold up?  Read on and find out!
