Was I Black In a Past Life?

In a recent interview over at the Geekin’ Over 40 podcast along with Geek Soul Brother, there was one question the host did not get a chance to ask me. It was a question Big Baba Rob meant in jest, but it was one that made me think. “Were you Black in a past life?” …

Afro Commentary: My Niece Deserves Better (Female Characters)

I have a dilemma. As an uncle to a 5 year-old girl who will not only break a lot of hearts when she gets older, but is intelligent, creative and fiercely independent, I find it will be difficult to introduce her to geek things as easily as it was with her older brother. There are …

GSB Film Review: Ender’s Game (2013) – Not Quite the War to End All Wars, But it’s Close

“Ender’s Game” is a book that has been touted for many years as an “unfilmable” property. With all its nuances, intricacies and character development, that may very well be the case. However, if Gavin Hood’s adaptation of the sci-fi classic doesn’t prove that notion wrong, it comes pretty damn close. Based on the 1985 book …

A Day of Futures Past: An Interview with Chris Claremont

In geek culture, we tend to regard the people responsible for the media we consume on a higher level than the rest of us. Yet, we all forget that these individuals are not Gods, real people with actual lives and emotions. My interview with the writer Chris Claremont reminded me of this fact. As the …

Montreal Comic-Con 2013, Day 1

It was a great start to this year’s Montreal Comic-Con. There was a good energy and even more than last years epic year. I did get a chance to spend a few minutes with Batman: Arkham Origins and I must say if you are fan of the original two games, this one will not disappoint. …

Afro Commentary: DC’s Perpetual Road to Stuck on Stupid

Bravo DC Comics, bravo! In the span of a few months, you have completely lost yet another reader. It was a long time coming mind you, however the whole “Batwoman not being able to marry her girlfriend” thing was the final nail in the coffin for me. For those unaware of the incident, here is …

Afro Commentary: In Defense of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci

Lately I have been seeing a lot more vitriol towards one of Hollywood’s hottest writing and producing tag teams. A team that is responsible for bringing some of the current mega franchises to the big screen while giving us some of our favorite series to TV. So in light of the hate that has been …
