  • Cosplay is not Consent: The Dragon Con Edition

    I feel the need to begin this article with the caveat that I had an amazing time at Dragon Con this year – the problem is that I have to also say that my having a good time was despite some things that happened. That said, I also think that I need to point out […]



  • Doctor Who 50th Anniversary at San Diego Comic Con

    Did I enjoy the Doctor Who panel at SDCC this year? Yes, immensely. But was my enjoyment of it proportional to the time I spent waiting to see it? Probably not. In a weekend stuffed full of incredible good luck for The Geekiary, I might even go so far as to say that the Doctor […]


  • MonsterCon: The Little Convention That Could

    San Diego Comic Con may be over and Dragon Con may be more than a month away, but all over the country there are still several conventions to look forward to. For example, in the upper south there’s Fandom Fest in Kentucky, taking place this coming weekend; while in the north east there’s Boston Comic […]


  • Supernatural at San Diego Comic Con

    Supernatural is one of those weird happenstances where a show is made for a mainstream audience, and then inexplicably gains an intense fandom presence. It can be jarring to realize that the fans as a collective put way more thought and effort into analyzing the characters, storylines, and themes than the showrunners do into writing […]


  • Geek and Sundry: the best-kept secret at ComicCon

    I was lucky enough to go to San Diego Comic Con this year and, like many others, unlucky enough to only have a badge for a single day. I fully expected to spend one day in rapture and three days crying into my cereal. But if anyone finds themself in my position in the future, […]


  • Jordan Gavaris Talks About Feedback From LGBT Community

    If you haven’t noticed, I talk a lot about queer representation in the media.  Like a lot.  It’s a thing.  So when I had the chance to be at the Orphan Black panel I knew I wanted to ask about Felix and Cosima.  Earlier in the panel many people had already expressed their love of […]


  • Hannibal Nerd HQ Pannibel – Flower Crowns!!!

    The content of the panel was streamed by Nerd HQ, tweeted by us live, and will be available on their website, so this article is less about the what was said and more about the photos.  There wasn’t too much said there that we didn’t also learn about from the main panel (available here), so […]


  • Swiggity Swanel That Was a Panel – SDCC Hannibal Panel Recap

    It’s very clear from today’s Comic Con panel that Bryan Fuller has his finger on the fandom a pulse. He referred to the stag as “Swiggity Swag the Nightmare Stag” and then donned a flower crown from one of the girls in the audience. Fuller even referred to himself as a Fannibal and said he […]


  • Neil Gaiman Live at the Crystal Ballroom

    Neil Gaiman’s voice sounds like his writing. I suppose that’s not terribly surprising. Of course the man who puts words together with uncompromising directness, and yet imbues so many phrases with little conspiratorial smirks, would also speak plainly and with a dry sense of humor. But there is also something about the quality of his […]
