Geek About Town: October

At long last, October has (almost!) arrived!!! That’s right, the best month of the year is upon us?

Probably nowhere MORE

Geek About Town: September

It’s officially September, and you know what that means!

Killing Eve is Everything You Need and More

Hello friends, blog readers, geeks far and wide! Today we are gathered here to celebrate a very important show.

Panel Recap: Lassos, Lightsabers, and Stakes

Given the wildly fluctuating highs and lows of 2017 (let’s face it, mainly lows), this past year’s GeekGirlCon represented the perfect space to reflect on the progress that has been made in the media we love, as well as the work that still needs to be done. One panel which perfectly encapsulated this blend of MORE

Panel Recap: Dissecting Disney: Race, Gender, Sexuality in Children’s Films

Being a Disney fan can be tough sometimes. Despite the countless hours I’ve spent rewatching “Moana” and belting out the entire “Mulan” soundtrack, it’s impossible to ignore the many, many ways in which Disney films – as well as all the other aspects of the massive capitalistic juggernaut that is the Disney corporation – have MORE

Geek About Town: March

We’ve made it (almost) through the winter, my fellow geeks! We’re moving from the cold and gray and rainy and to the…slightly less cold and gray and rainy. And as the temperature outside starts to creep slowly upwards, we’ve got a wide variety of incredibly, cheering, 100% certified nerdy events to help you celebrate the MORE

Panel Recap: Sex Ed Super Friends!

It’s time for me to make a confession.

Going into my second Con as both an attendee and a copywriter, I was incredibly excited to attend the panel “¿Como Se Dice ‘Nerd’?” Last year, this panel was without a doubt one of the highlights of my entire convention experience, and this year proved to be no different. Moderated by Sylvia Artiga, a writer MORE

The good news is that there is SO MANY incredible and exciting events coming up in January to help beckon in a better and brighter new year!     Tuesday, MORE

Panel Recap: The Road to Riverdale: A Look at the Evolution of Archie and the Gang

I have a confession to make: I haven’t been a “Riverdale” fan for very long. I’m sad to say that I never read the Archie comics growing up, and my major investment in the Riverdale universe pre-CW adaptation was an extreme love for “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and a sneaking suspicion that Betty and Veronica MORE
