Integrity Matters to Us: Theft is Not Cool This Year or Next

theft

Sup nerds: An apology of sorts- Recently we had to remove an article from our site, the Facebook and our Twitter. I won’t go into the details, suffice it to say we had something submitted to us by a guest author that we posted. Recently, we had the actual original creator send us an email calling out the theft. He was real mad. Shit. I’m not justifying the stealing. Here’s the issue: Writing is tough. Writing on a consistent basis is tough. Having people other than me write, write consistently, and write good things that other people want to read… is … Read more

Doug’s reading girly comics!!

I’m probably not supposed to have an opinion on girly comics, but let’s go! Doug reads girl comics I picked up Hawkeye this past week. No more Cliff, we’re in Kate-town now. Katherine “Kate” Bishop, a relatively new character in the Marvel Universe, she was released in 2005. She takes over the Hawkeye mantel now and again. One issue down and I’m already hooked. I went back to my LCS and told them to add Hawkeye to my pull list. “Add that girl Hawkeye book to my list.” I realized something then, I read a fair amount of comics with female … Read more

Collecting: I might need these pizza boxes later!!

Collecting! Trent Reznor, on the topic of collecting, once said “I pick things up, I am a collector. And things, well things, they tend to accumulate.” Trent Reznor also looks like if Alan Rickman and Dylan McDermott had a child. Ain’t even mad about that. 20 years to grow into a face like that, fine. Most of the internet thinks the song is about depression and dwelling on the past. Not me pal, I think he’s just very adamant about his collection, whatever it might be. A misprint Beanie Baby collection that got out of hand, Jem & Rio Pacheco … Read more

Indie titles: Give a hoot, read a comic!

Greetings friends! Did you know GeekDayton has an Instagram page? We do! It’s chock full of pictures and…. pictures. Click the follow button and come with us into a world of photography we force-feed into your smart devices! But we’d been asked recently “Hello GeekDayton, who is buying all of those comics you post on your IG and what’s wrong with that person?” (I had to omit most of the swearing.) Why it’s none other than me! I’m very sorry. But now for those few who have noticed I have a tendency to pick up first issues of a lot of … Read more

Shaky Cam: I feel like I’m… *barf*

Shakycam (also known as Queasicam, Hand-held cam, or free cam) is considered to be a cinematographic technique. A technique? Seriously? Let me explain. So I’ve all but completely stopped watching movies made in… oh… the last decade or so? Why you ask? Well, hang on. In movies, tv, and live action, pretty much anything that has film or tape involved, you can have a cinematographer (also known as a director of photography). What do cinematographers do? The cinematographer selects the camera, film stock, lens, filters, etc., to realize the scene in accordance with the intentions of the director. Relations between the cinematographer and director vary; … Read more

GD PodShort- Comic Delays

We’re trying something new with the GD Podshort. Recorded a few months ago. Comic delays hurt people on all levels, it’s a serious issue. Let us know what you think about PodShorts! The pants or the audio clips. Follow us on SoundCloud, and wherever you get your podcasts.  

Your Favorite Comic Characters are Going to Change, but That’s Okay.

comic books

The only thing that stays constant in comics is that Aquaman will eat fish at a restaurant and some asshole will ask him if it’s okay if he does that. Aside from that, your favorite character may become a woman or become a Muslim or maybe even a Hispanic boy, but it’s okay because in the end it’s just comics and I’m sure in another few months it’ll all go back to the way it was. You shouldn’t care about what sex or race your favorite character is as long as they’re being written well. Jason Aaron turned Jane Foster … Read more

How To: Board Game Night at Proto Buildbar! 2017

Board Game Night at Proto Buildbar. Coming up soon. It got me thinking. You’re about to read something that I’ll never say again in my entire life. (Probably). Get the family all together in the room while you read this. Shut the tv off. Board games are better than video games in one way. But seriously, though. One way. I was asked to watch a “How To Play” video of a board game. It was like 30 minutes long. Early in the video, the guy mentioned how I had to also watch the core game “How To Play” video. It … Read more
