    Michael Dante DiMartino is probably best known for being one half of the creative team that gave the world Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra – two series which have continued in comics and graphic novels. The first volume of The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, released this month, with volume two set to hit stands in […]


  • Tomi Adeyemi on Epic Adventures and Representation

    If you’re not familiar with the name Tomi Adeyemi, you soon will be. Her debut novel, Children of Blood and Bone, hasn’t even hit shelves yet and has already been optioned for a movie, in a seven-figure deal that is almost unheard of for a new author, let alone one who is just 23. - **Read […]


  • Nidhi Chanani’s Pashmina: A Girl’s Search for Her True Self

    When considering books to review for The Geekiary, I try to focus on what we represent as a site, so I look for some diversity – books about women, LGBTQ+ characters, or people of color.

  • Tillie Walden on Her Process, Coming Out, and Yuri on Ice

    Unless you’ve just stumbled across The Geekiary, you’ll know that we love ourselves a little Yuri on Ice. That’s why, when I read over the list of ARCs that would be available at this year’s BookExpo America, I paused on the description of Spinning by Tillie Walden, a graphic memoir about ice skating with a queer narrative. When […]



  • Book Review: “The Pearl Thief”

    I’ve been meaning to make a recommendation post for Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity, a gripping tale of a young British spy who is captured during World War II and her friendship with a pilot, but I obviously never got around to it. Nevertheless, even though The Pearl Thief is a prequel, it fully stands on its […]
