How to react when you’re friend hasn’t seen a popular film, etc.
Geeks have this overreaction more often than not.
Exciting news! My Geek A Week trading card is now available at @ThinkGeek!! I can’t even tell you how surreal it is. Len Peralta interviewed me a while back and depicted me as my favorite character, Leeloo, on my card. You may also remember, Peralta did a gorgeous illustration of me as Batgirl/Oracle as well.
Anyway, the fact that people will be buying cards with ME on them is super cool and I’m in fantastic company with the likes of Jessica Mills, Seth Green, Paul Dini, Jeri Ryan and George R. R. Martin!! Get them while they last!

Deadpool #7 had a gag where it was set up to look like an 80s comic book. The same went for the letters column in the back of the issue. A bunch of people “wrote in” including writer of the issue Brian Posehn. Or should I say “young Brian Posehn” as it was meant to be written as if he was living in the 80s as well. The language is, well, not great, and includes a jab at “fake geek girls.”
And yeah, I know this is in a Deadpool comic, I know it’s all one big joke but it would have been nice if he hadn’t taken that particular jab. It was a great chance to showcase the ridiculousness of the “fake geek girl” argument and flip it on its head. How refreshing would it have been had he written something like this instead:
"Maybe one day you’ll start noticing girls are into nerdy stuff too and then there’ll be this weird backlash against them with a bunch of dudes calling them ‘fake geeks’ and making them feel bad for talking about the nerdy stuff they love. Which is weird because 80s me would love to find out girls like Deadpool too."
Just a thought.
