There was just something about being mocked by the people whose sole job is to create laughter that made me smile.   If you haven’t [...]

Regular Show #1 Review

Regular Show #1 Review

When I was growing up most of the comics based off of shows were pretty reasonable to say the least. Comics based off of Nickelodeon and Disney shows appeared in their respective magazines but those died like most magazines is the early two thousands. While the stories would often be hit or miss they still [...]

Ten Grand #1 Review

Ten Grand #1 Review

I watched Constantine twice. I got over Keanu’s acting about an hour in, but the concept a guy who battles the forces of heaven is pretty interesting.  That’s what I think drew me to the new series by writer J.Michael Straczynski. The former writer of Amazing Spiderman brings us to the world of Ten Grand. [...]

Due to the recent death of Robin (acceptable reactions are ‘again?’ and ‘no one ever dies in comics’), we at Geekenstein thought it would be the bees knees to delve into the history of the character of the Boy Wonder and see how many different incarnations there have been. Who is Robin? Robin is a [...]

Everybody Loves Tank Girl Review

Everybody Loves Tank Girl Review

I’ve never been a huge fan of Tank Girl. That’s not a knock against the series at all, but I don’t think I quite got it when I first read it in middle school. I just didn’t get it. Nothing about the plot, setting or characters seemed to make any sense and neither did all [...]

Seduction of the Innocent Review

Seduction of the Innocent Review
