For many kids of the ‘90s, the best toons were Nicktoons. Rugrats, Doug (before Disney took it down way too many pegs), Aaahh!! Real Monsters, CatDog. While all of these were great and complemented Nickelodeon’s even superior live action series at the time, there was no greater animated series that touched closer to home for some than Hey Arnold!

After spending an entire day doing some heavy lifting, we recorded for the very first time from our future home at the Oddmall Outpost! We have a bit of a preview of what’s to come at this new, permanent location for oddness plus details about the next Oddmall, coming in just a couple weeks. In geek news, there were some good movie trailers released last week, plus there’s a big geek museum exhibit coming in the new year. Then we get into Justice League, with a spoilery discussion about what we thought was good, what needed fixing and whether it’s worth seeing. Listen now!

If you follow me or Geek Watch One, you know I’m a Marvel chick. The Marvel style, characters, stories – it’s just my preference. But this doesn’t mean I hate DC.

But every now and then, a series comes along that’s just too good not to watch though (see previous posts about Ducktales, Gravity Falls). Star Vs. The Forces of Evil is another such series.

Whether you’re a fan of the tv shows, the movies or the comic books themselves, you know about the decades-long rivalry between Marvel and DC. Yes, they are obviously competitors in the same market, but it’s always been a little bit more than that. The products they sell may be the same on a basic level, but there’s always been a “mine is better than yours” attitude between the companies and the fans of their work. And for the fans who, like me, love finding out about behind the scenes details, there’s a great new book on the history of these two comic book giants. Continue reading She Geek Critique – Bam! Pow!
