After several years of attending SDCC – and writing about the Vikings takeover in 2015 – this year I finally had the chance to experience their official panel…and not surprisingly, it was amazing. - **Read our policies before commenting.** Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites.

It’s a tradition here at The Geekiary to highlight our favorite women in geek culture at the end of every year, and doing so feels even more important now as we head into a frightening political climate. Attacks against women online and in real life are spiking as certain groups feel empowered by recent political […]
The world is sort of scary right now for members of our community, but there were many wonderful 2016 LGBTQ+ moments for us in geek media this year. We’ve got a tradition here at the Geekiary of chronicling our favorite moments throughout the year as a celebration. Our 2016 LGBTQ+ Moments in Geek Culture is not […]
The first half of Vikings season 4 ended on an odd note, with an episode that saw Rollo vanquish Ragnar and his fellow Vikings as they attempted to attack Paris again and then featured a time skip of several years. Season 4 returns on November 30th, and this past week Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha) was on […]
Geeky accessories don’t always get categorized as glamorous or sophisticated, but who wouldn’t want small geek touches to highlight your every day? When I first stumbled upon Paula Sancheztein’s work, I was taken with the craftsmanship and quality of the jewelry and other metal pieces. These items are stunning, and I knew that I wanted […]

I have missed the rich, detailed textures of Vikings. I have missed the wide, sweeping shots of incredible scenery. I have missed the many attractive people on horseback and in peril. “A Good Treason”, the fourth season premiere, featured all of these things in the first few minutes, and I am glad that I don’t have to miss […]
Considering I wrote a recommendation for History Channel’s Vikings last year, I obviously really enjoy the show – and because of that I’m super excited about everything Vikings-related at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The official panel is on Friday at 3:30 PM in Room 6A of the convention center, and will feature Travis Fimmel […]
