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.

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

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?
