S1E32 - Superheroes Halloween Edition: Blade

October 1st, 2020

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the "first" Marvel superhero to make a big screen debut: Blade.

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - Millicent Patrick: The Creature from the Black Lagoon

In 1939 Patrick began working for Walt Disney Studios and during her time there became one of the studio's first female animators. Patrick continued her career at Universal Studios and is cited as being the first woman to work in a special effects and makeup department. She is best known for being the creator of the head costume for the iconic Gill-man from the movie Creature from the Black Lagoon. During promotion for the film Patrick was sent on a press tour, dubbed "The Beauty Who Created the Beast", to discuss the creation of the creature. This was quickly changed by Bud Westmore to "The Beauty Who Lives With the Beast", to avoid citing Patrick as the creator of the Gill-man. 

 

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Enola Holmes! Fun, action packed and GREAT for the whole family. This is the first Enola Holmes movie based on the book series. Millie Bobby Brown is the titular character with Henry Cavill as Sherlock, Sam Claflin as Mycroft and Helena Bonham Carter as Eudora, their incredible mother. Watch it now on Netflix.

Jeremy - Van Helsing. Vanessa Helsign. This show is the right amount of action, diverse cast and borderline weird plot. You have everything from serial killers, to cultists, to a woman who can turn vampires into humans. It's not the best sci-fi show out there, but it does have some interesting plot moments and the lead actress is just the right amount bad assery.

 

Deep Dive - Superheroes Halloween edition: Blade

We delve into the awesomeness that is 1998's Blade. Not only did it start a fairly unknown hero, but also features a person of color and hold the first R rating. It launched a trilogy and we discuss them all!

QotW: Watch Blade Three (judge me all you want!) and tell us what your favorite part was.

S1E31 - All About Trish

September 17th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com
https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about T.L. Heinrich! How did she get into writing and what the hell turned her onto superheroes? We’ll find out what got her to this point, and what steamy stories she’s cooking up next.

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - Becky Cloonan, the first woman artist for Batman

Becky Cloonan was born in Pisa, Italy. She went to New York's School of Visual Arts, which offered the kind of rigorous training that Cloonan had been searching for. She also collaborated with writer Steven T. Seagle on the Vertigo Comics series American Virgin, which was cancelled with the 23rd issue. In 2012 she became the first woman to draw the main Batman title. (Her issues included Ghost in the Machine, The Wedding Batman Black and White and Gotham Academy)

 

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Cobra Kai never say die! Yes, I’m totally geeking out about the series based on the 80’s sensation that was The Karate Kid. Both Danny and Johnny are back in this series that takes place many decades later. While the characters might be the same, the story is not. In fact, there is no clear villain or hero in the first season, unless you count the characters’ own inner demons. It’s a redemption story, a comedy, a drama. It’s got everything. Including nostalgia dripping from every episode. Both season now on Netflix.

Jeremy - We’re going old school and revisiting some early 2000’s science fiction. The first is a hyper saturated movie with all the glitz and none of the glam: Ultra Violet. But why stop there? Let’s throw Aeon Flux into the mix. Even an outstanding job by Theron can’t save this sinking ship. They might lack in story, but they’re perfect for low-key popcorn munching.

Deep Dive - All about Trish

This week Trish interviews Jeremy about all things zombies and superheroes. We talk about how he got into writing, what has worked and hasn’t worked, and why his superheroes are a little different from other superhero novels.

S1E30 -Everything About Host Jeremy Flagg

September 10th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the man himself: Jeremy Flagg!

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - Dorothy Woolfolk-First Female Comic Writer

She served from 1942 to 1944 as an editor at All-American Publications, one of the three companies that would merge to form the present-day DC, then spent the next two years at Timely Comics, the 1940s predecessor to Marvel Comics, and in 1948 was an editor at EC Comics.

 She died at Mary Immaculate Hospital in that city on November 27, 2000. Woolfolk won the 2018 Bill Finger Award from San Diego Comic-Con International.

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Bill & Ted Face the Music. This movie is sweet, fun and just all around what we need in a year like this. I’m a big Bill and Ted fan and was afraid this movie would blow. But I was so very pleasantly surprised! Check it out on Amazon for a ninety-minute escape from reality.

Jeremy - Okay, we’re going to get into some weird level geek. I’m a tech nerd and early adopter of new gadgets. Being a teacher, I’m preparing to teach remotely and I’ve been spending all my time learning new gadgets and gizmos to help students be successful. It’s not comics and superheroes, but I have to say, I squeal a bit when I find a new piece of software (even more when it does what it’s supposed to!)

S1E29 - Super Bad, Superhero Movies

September 3rd, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the movies that are so very bad, but we love them anyway.

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - Jackie Ormes

She is the Google Doodle for September 1st. Ormes's first comic strip, Torchy Brown in Dixie to Harlem, first appeared in the Pittsburgh Courier on May 1, 1937. Her work was not syndicated in the usual sense, but, since the Courier had fourteen city editions, she was indeed read from coast to coast. The strip, starring Torchy Brown, was a humorous depiction of a Mississippi teen who found fame and fortune singing and dancing in the Cotton Club

 

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Avenue Five on HBO. An interstellar cruise ship gets the Gilligan’s Island treatment and instead of a few months of cruising, they get...three and a half years. Hugh Laurie is SO good in this!

Jeremy - After quite some waiting, the long-awaited sequel to Korea’s Train to Busan has been released. The first movie was a zombie sensation that revitalized the genre. While not a direct sequel, Peninsula has its moments to shine. The car chase scenes make Mad Max come off as a lackluster Sunday drive. While Peninsula has a bit of a genre crisis at times, it still entertains and has quite a few stand out moments. Definitely worth watching.

 

Deep Dive - The Bad Movies (Some of Which We Might Love)

Spiderman 3, Batman and Robin, The Shadow, Daredevil, Fantastic Four (all of them) and what about the made for TV Generation-X movie?. Tune in to find out which ones we love, and which ones we wish had never been made!

 

QotW: If you had a time machine, what movie would you go back and erase from history?

S1E28 - DC Fandome Trailers

August 27th, 2020

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the trailers that were just released through the DC Fandome virtual event. What looks amazing, what we’re excited about, and what we’re probably going to pass on.

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - The Suicide Squad

Some serious Z listers in this sequel, here’s some info on a few:

TDK-Otherwise known as The Detachable Kid or Arm-Fall-Off-Boy. The character first appeared in Secret Origins Vol 2 #46 in 1989. He was originally from the future and has never canonically been a member of The Squad. In the movie, he’s played by Nathan Fillion.

Polka Dot Man- First crossed paths with Batman in 1962’s Detective Comics #300. He uses detachable polka dots as weapons, some that transform into different objects. He is played by David Dastmalchian in the movie.

Ratcatcher 2- Detective Comics #585 introduced the Ratcatcher, the original villain was a ratcatcher who had knowledge of the sewer tunnel system in Gotham and could talk to and train, you guessed it, rats which he used to restrain, and torture victims and to smuggle goods. The film introduces us to a gender swapped version of the character who appears to be a legacy since she’s the second one. She’s played by Portuguese film actress Daniela Melchior

 

GEEK OUTS

Trish -Lucifer Season Five, Part One. OMG, I binged it in one day and am having some withdrawals. We got some GREAT fan service, Tom Ellis is an acting genius as he portrays not just Lucifer but his twin brother Michael and fans finally got the moment we’ve been waiting five seasons for!

Jeremy -  Been going on a vampire rampage lately. Burned through the five Underworld movies (and soon onto Blade.) Underworld 1 is a classic and just an all around good action film. The rest start getting more and more convoluted as they attempt to expand the storyline and shoe-horn in some romance. Thankfully Kate Beckingsdale returns for the final two (three is worth skipping!)

 

Deep Dive - The DC Fandome Trailers!

WW84-Absolutely will see, this trailer made me want it even more if that’s possible. I’ll be there opening weekend.

The Batman-I’ll catch it on Amazon, at this point, seen the previous dozen Batman films, you’ve seen them all.

Suicide Squad-I am optimistic with James Gunn at the helm and the team of Z listers he’s assembled that this could be what the first Squad movie should’ve been. And Elba, Capaldi, and Fillion don’t hurt either.

Gotham Knights-Now THIS is the Batman movie I wish we were getting, why? Because Batman is dead, hear me out. I would love a spin on the Batman mythos that shows us what Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood would have to do in the wake of Batman’s murder to protect Gotham and navigate the murky waters of his legacy. If they make this for the Switch I will play the crap out of this game!

The Snyder Cut- Do I have to say it? Hard pass. If you need four hours to tell a Justice League movie, you don’t know what the hell you’re doing. And I’ll admit that the toxicity of the fans who clamored for this makes me want to avoid it even more.

Black Adam- Um...ok? What am I looking at here?

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League-Meh, looks ok story-wise. Not enticed to play.

QotW: What trailers from the DC Fandome got you excited?

S1E27 - The Umbrella Academy: Season 2

August 13th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about The Umbrella Academy. Did they fix the problems from last season? Did we love it? And what are our favorite moments from this latest season?

 

Pop-Culture Trivia - The Umbrella Academy

Season One: 

  • Aidan Gallagher (Five) was not allowed to be on set during any gun fight scenes because of child labor laws. Instead a body double was used.
  • The Phantom of the Opera Medley that Vanya plays in the first episode when the characters are introduced is an arrangement performed by violinist Lindsey Sterling.
  • "My Chemical Romance" frontman Gerard Way penned the original comic series.

Season Two: 

  • Ellen Paige collaborated with showrunners to ensure that Vanya and Sissy’s relationship didn’t turn out to be a tragedy (Thank you!)
  • The crew did not get a clean take of the scene when Luther farts in the elevator, if you watch closely you can see Diego laughing.
  • The only scene filmed in Dallas was the grassy knoll
  • The cast did not get the final pages of the script for episode ten until closer to shooting.

For additional fun, check out this interview with the cast and find out all the little secrets.

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Star Girl! OMG, a love letter to the Silver Age of comics, a family-friendly gem that won’t bore parents and all-around a GREAT show!

Jeremy - Tales from the Loop, an anthology style show on Amazon is the perfect blend of retro-futurism and nuanced story telling. The best part, it’s based on narrative art books created by Simon Stalenhag and the Zon does them justice. Check out his book: https://amzn.to/30L6mtQ

 

Deep Dive - The Umbrella Academy

Trish -  They fixed the major issues for me from the first season, although it was close. I honestly did not trust the showrunners so I was distracted by worry throughout the season and admit that it diminished my enjoyment of the season overall. That being said, I liked it enough that a second viewing is in order so that I can absorb it better. The last episode sealed the deal for me in the way that Vanya was allowed to legit be the most powerful person in the room without destroying the world, and how they really tried to reach Lilly and invite her into the family. The scene between Ben and Vanya is the most powerful one in my opinion. He gives her permission (in a healing way) to be angry and hurt, he validates her experiences of abuse at the hands of her father and helps her start the healing process. It was beautiful.

Jeremy - My bar was set pretty low. The first season is filled with characters I spent more time hating than loving. There is a thing as too much quirk and I think trying to make every character the extreme of that quirk got tiresome. I prayed for Vanya’s death by the end (actually, all of them.) The second season is a different story. It opens with a bang, quite literally. There is more depth with each character as threads of their lives are actually plot relevant. Vanya is less annoying (I only wanted her dead here and there) and it goes to show some serious amnesia can fix a poorly plotted personality. Ben gets to be relevant. They attempt to give Diego some depth (and yet nerf him in the process) and Klaus is really just more of the same ol’. Allison saves the season for me. Her story has relevance, it’s retro and very now at the same time. She has romance, complexity, and a few badass moments. The rest of the family is better balanced which lets you enjoy the story, but if you found them annoying in season one, be prepared for more annoying.

S1E26 - So Bad it’s Good: Guardians

August 6th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re talking about the Russian made superhero film, Guardians. Is it so bad it’s good?

 

POP-CULTURE TRIVIA
August 1940 Claire Voyant aka The Black Widow

Introduced in Mystic Comics #4 as "the strangest, most terrifying character in action picture magazines…” Her book features artwork by Harry Sahle. According to Jess Nevins' Encyclopedia of Golden Age Superheroes, "The Black Widow can kill with a touch and has other, Satan-derived, plot device powers. The wrongdoers she goes after are ordinary humans, although one group of them call themselves Murder, Unlimited and another is the Cult of the Black Widow Spiders." Her next appearance occurs 51 years later, in a flashback cameo in one panel of issue #1 (Jan. 1994) of the mini-series Marvels ("A Time of Marvels", written by Kurt Busiek with art by Alex Ross), and again eleven years later (Feb. 2005), also in a brief flashback, in Marvel Knights Spider-Man #9 ("The Last Stand", written by Mark Millar with art by Terry and Rachel Dodson).

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Blood and Ash by Deborah Wilde.

Jeremy - I've been knee deep in photography research. Starting a side project and need to spend copious amounts of time looking at models. The good thing is I'm rediscovering my love for the European Mod movement in fashion. Who knew the 70's needed to make a come back?

 

Deep Dive - So bad it’s good: Guardians

Trish - Unfortunately, it’s just bad. What I liked: some of the visuals (not the effects) were really compelling, the makeup effects on the big bad were very well done, and the heroes did have interesting power sets (except for the woman who just turns invisible...but only in water...ok). What I didn’t like: cheap effects aside (because I think they did the best they could with what little they had) the script SERIOUSLY hamstrung this film. 

Jeremy - How dare she? It's awesome! What I liked: I go into these movies with the bar already set low, so consider me impressed with the specific methods they utilized their budget. The effects weren't horrible (nor great) but they really emphasized the SFX around their abilities. It's the first time teleporting has been done this well (Sorry Nightcrawler) and this is the Invisible Woman that Fantastic Four deserved and never got. What I didn't like: The script! That was painful, and why were they doing what they were doing? Does anybody have motivation or is this movie the product of boredom? It's hard to tell for the majority of it....BUT POWERS!!!!

S1E25 - So Whatcha Doin’?

July 30th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re going to give you a sneak peek at some of the exciting things happening in our author careers. We finally open up about our own writing in the superhero genre, and talk at length about why we’re branching out to touch upon other sub-genres.

 

Pop-Culture Trivia-July 1971 Swamp Thing

A humanoid/plant elemental creature, created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, the Swamp Thing has had several humanoid or monster incarnations in various different storylines. The character first appeared in House of Secrets #92 (July 1971) in a stand-alone horror story set in the early 20th century.The Swamp Thing television series first aired on the USA Network from 1990 to 1993, with Dick Durock reprising the role of Swamp Thing from the movie adaptation. DiC Entertainment's Swamp Thing animated series debuted on Fox Kids in April 1991, with Len Carlson providing the voice of the title character. A live-action series based on the Swamp Thing and produced by James Wan was released in 2019 on the DC Universe streaming service, with Alec Holland portrayed by Andy Bean while Swamp Thing is played by Derek Mears in a "physical costume."

GEEK OUTS

  • Trish - The Last Kingdom on Netflix. It’s a blatant soap opera, but it include Vikings, so who really cares?
  • Jeremy - Some wonderfully bad horror movies (warning, I spoil pretty much everything.) What happens when you take AirBnB, annoying people, and a crazy dude with a hammer?

 

Deep Dive - What’s New in Our Superhero Worlds?

  • Trish - I’m pivoting my Superhero universe to start focusing on more romantic novels. For TL Heinrich, it will be superhero first with slow burn romances and read quite a lot like Paranormal and Urban Fantasy with romantic elements more front and center. For Trish Heinrich, it’s Romance first, superheroes second with a good dose of steam.
  • Jeremy - The second series is with the editor and I'm looking at a busy fall. After my pilot series focusing on action adventure, the prequel is much more of an alternate history / urban fantasy vibe. While that's with the editor I'm working on a much thicker science fiction novel that takes place centuries in the future. My current strategy is to maintain a superhero focus while touching on other genres to expand readership. We'll see how this pans out!

S1E24 - Which Superman Will Save Me?

July 23rd, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com

https://www.superhero-fiction.com

 

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re discussing which portrayal of Superman is the best Superman. Since there have been a long list of people who have portrayed him, we focus on the live-action roles of (mostly) modern iterations of the Man of Steel.

Pop-Culture Trivia - July 1981 - Vixen Premieres

Created by Gerry Conway and Bob Oksner. She first appeared in Action Comics #521. a superheroine in possession of the Tantu Totem, which allows her to harness the spirit (ashe) of animals. She can conjure the power and abilities of any animal past or present.

 

Two versions of the character appeared in The CW's Arrowverse. Original comic book character Mari McCabe debuted in the CW Seed animated series Vixen, voiced by Megalyn Echikunwoke, who also reprised her role in an episode of the live-action parent series, Arrow. Legends of Tomorrow introduced a World War II-era Vixen, Amaya Jiwe, identified as Mari's grandmother, portrayed by Maisie Richardson-Sellers.

GEEK OUTS

Trish - The Old Guard...HOLY CRAP! Netflix has managed to outdo themselves with their newest movie. Starring Charlize Theron, this graphic novel adaptation leaves us wanting more, and perhaps we’ll actually get it!

 

Jeremy - Graphic design and photoshop tutorials have become a way of life. Finally putting those art degrees to use, I’ve been focusing on book cover creation which really means I spend most of my day reverse engineering some of the best book covers in the science fiction genre.

 

Deep Dive - Which Superman Will Save Me?

Many have assumed the role as the Man of Steel and his nerdy alter-ego, but the question remains, who did it best? We duke it out as we cover the live action actors who have donned the cape and brought this titan to life. Sorry Turkish Superman (Süpermen Dönüyor) you only get an honorable mention. Be warned, we get choked up in this episode!

S1E23 - What to Read While You Wait for WW 1984

July 16th, 2020

Geekorama is Produced by Superhero-Fiction.com
https://www.superhero-fiction.com

For this week’s episode of Geekorama, we’re discussing what you can read to tide you over until Wonder Woman 1984 (hopefully) gets released in theaters.

Pop-Culture Trivia - 1965 Wonder Girl: Donna Troy

Originally there is a bit of confusion about this character because, in an effort to make Wonder Woman more palatable after the publication of Seduction of the Innocent, they did a series of Impossible Tales showing WW as a child who was called Wonder Girl. Then in a July 1961 WW comic, Wonder Girl is referred to as a separate person from Diana. The first time Wonder Girl appeared as a separate person from WW was in The Brave and the Bold #6. Commonly connected with Teen Titans, she is considered a founding member of the team. 

Her most iconic iteration has to be the George Perez and Marv Wolfman run on Teen Titans in the 1980’s. Donna has a SLEW of weird, retconned origins including: being a magically brought to life reflection of Diana so the young Princess had an age-appropriate playmate, a golem brought to life by Wally West’s incomplete memories of her from a previous iteration who is then forced to relive all her previous lives, resurrected by Titans of Myth so she can be exploited as an anomaly that existed prior to the Crisis. Recommended reading: Teen Titans by George Perez and Marv Wolfman.

GEEK OUTS

Trish - Warrior Nun! A great Netflix show that has an interesting approach to a female dominant cast. The acting is top notch. The topics get dark and there is plenty of humor. Netflix shoots itself in the foot with a tragically abrupt ending that is bound to be unresolved knowing how easily they cancel shows.

Jeremy - The perfect marriage of comics and graphic design can be found with HelloMuller. The designer who created the design behind Powers of X and House of X is nothing short of visual eye candy. The best part is, he has a long history with comics. To see more of his work (and an amazing video that punches you in the face) check out: https://hellomuller.com

 

Deep Dive - What to read while waiting for Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman #9 by George Perez - The Essential Wonder Woman Story

Wonder Woman #3, 5, 7, 8 - The Rebirth Storyline (involves some crazy plant gods!)

Max Lord: too convoluted and spread out over a bunch of cross over issues to give really good comics to read, basically here’s a quick rundown of the character: a successful businessman, he starts out as a very weak hero during the Crisis on Infinite Earths mega comics cross-over. Post Crisis he ends up putting together because the world needs heroes. It’s revealed later that he’s doing this for nefarious purposes and all hell breaks loose. He’s now, canonically, a villain. Portrayed in both Smallville and Supergirl, he makes his big-screen debut in WW 1984.

 

QotW: What do you hope to see in the WW 1984 movie?
