A Guy Named Greg

This week, on a very special Geekin’ Out… Normally around this time, I would be coming to you with half-formed thoughts about whichever video game I’d just finished blitzing my way through.  But this past weekend, this entire past week, even, I’ve been distracted.  On Sunday, this distraction came to a head in such a […]

DC Relaunch: Week 3 (Part 2)

This is Part Deux of our Week Three Review! Again, I have the lovely Shannon to fill in the spot of the Troll-King, Brendon.
