How we got into it

Tonight on GeekNights, rather than the old thing of how to get into it, we talk about the new thing: how we got into it. Specifically, the origins of our anime, manga, comic, and convention geekeries. But first, Wakfu is a thing, and the Black Jack OAV is getting a final, eleventh volume.

Castle Waiting

Tonight on GeekNights we review the wonderful Castle Waiting by Linda Medley. Also tonight, consider Mike Toole's exploration of the late and great Osamu Dezaki and a fans' petition to bring back the OLD Transformers comics. We're also back from Anime Boston, and we're still taking panel/workshop submissions for ConnectiCon 2011!

MoCCA Festival 2011

Tonight on GeekNights, with Emily as our guest host, we talk about all of the art and comics we found at the MoCCA Festival this year. But first, there being little news in this arena, "purified" illegal manga torrents, the Flash, and the 4kids bankruptcy.

We'll post a list of the comics in the forum later on.

Digital Comic Distribution

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the more interesting bits around the dissemination and consumption of comics in digital form (after arguing about the old men running Broadway). Scott geekbites Peepo Choo, and Rym rambles about the Riverside Trek Fest failing.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the hit new animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It's a reboot of the My Little Pony universe produced by Studio B Productions, and it has some surprising demographics. There's also a Thundercats reboot coming involving Studio 4C, and Bone is coming in color (again)!

Mahou Tsukai Tai OAV

Tonight on GeekNights, we recall the surprisingly solid 90s OAV Mahou Tsukai Tai (including its adorable opener). In the news, the New York International Children's Film Festival returns with, among other wonderful screenings, Time of Eve and Welcome to the Space Show. Also, the Pokemon Trainer Challenge comes to be.

Subs and Dubs

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the age old fanboy member measuring argument of "sub vs. dub." Scott GeekBites 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors and the New York Comic Con added a Thursday "preview night."
