With Great Power… The Stan Lee Story is a very thorough but heartfelt look at Stan Lee’s career in the comic book industry. If you were ever lucky enough to witness Stan ‘The Man’ Lee speaking in public, you know this icon is a charmer, extremely funny and he just glows with kindness. The last time I met him personally, he planted a smooch right on my cheek! I was in heaven! I felt like I was pretty much blessed by a great man, if not a God in the Geek World.
At 89 years old, Stan has the energy of a young man and more love for life than any of us can ever imagine.
All Crime is a story about the frailty of friendship when up against the selfishness of love. The book is written by Art of Fiction, with cover art from Bruce Timm and illustrated by Ed Laroche and Marc Sandroni. The panels on the first page jumps right into a violent scene of a man committing a gruesome murder hit. Quickly, the story is established as a mob or gang story. The main character, Dodger, wants to kill a supposedly powerful mob leader, Louie Derose.
Then the tale jumps into the past, establishing the relationships between the two men and a woman.
The internet exploded with Disney’s buy out of Lucasfilm and the Lady Geeks discuss the new status of Leia as a Disney Princess. We also talk about Halloween and costumes… and six to eight pack abs on the Green Arrow.

Lady Yume Ninja of NinjaSovereign.com was kindly enough to invite the kingdom of Defective Geeks to her birthday celebration. The theme was Game of Thrones and for one night, all rivalry was put aside for a party of costumes, food and getting silly with all our too-busy and creative friends.
I went as closet-cosplay dragon, aka I just put my Happy Hoodie Friends dragon hat on and called it a day. (didn’t have time to go all out… I had to work that day. Sad face). Surprisingly, we were lacking a Daenerys and so I didn’t get to perch on anyone. Gizzy B went as ‘Drunk Cersei’ and lived up to her character’s reputation that night.
Each lady on the Defective Geeks circle of blogging and mayhem have their own political views. Mainly, we keep them off this blog and you may see our opinions in each of our own personal accounts.
Also, I don’t usually share them viral videos on the blog, but I think all of us can agree that Joss Whedon is always amazing and this video is full of hilarity. Please. Enjoy.

This was my first year attending Yaoi-Con.
The convention has been around for many years but it was usually held at San Francisco, California. This year, it moved to Long Beach, California and Fortune Cookie and I decided to check it out. I’m going to try and give the convention a fair assessment, as this was my first year in attendance and I will try not to be a jaded, bitter cookie about it.
First of all, if you don’t know what yaoi means, head on over to the Wikipedia page. If you don’t feel like reading the Wikipedia page, yaoi is boys loving each other manga and anime. Warning, there is a NSFW photo below the cut!
