We have our guest blogger, Kapraun. He imagines what Thor would be like at different restaurants. Thor at a Fast Food Joint “You mean to tell me that I can have a dozen burgers of ham that is not ham but beef for ten Asgardian dollars? I request five orders.” Thor at an “All You Can Eat Buffet” “Why am I only allotted such a small serving of the meat?! I requested the entirety of the animal. No, I have NO INTEREST in the bar of lettuce and uncooked vegetables!!” Thor at an Upscale Restaurant Why are there so many silverware with which to eat? In Asgard, we eat primarily with our hands. Even on the fields of battle when… Continue reading How Would Thor Behave at Restaurants?
It has been TEN months since I’ve looked on the internet for isolated comic book panels that leave us with more questions than answers. Basically, everything, taken out of context. SANIC Man, as if Sonic the Hedgehog wasn’t already lowkey weird enough, we throw this panel into the mix. Don’t go to fanfiction.net, is all I’m saying. Modern Problems Require Modern Solutions When Taco Bell gets your order wrong, just follow Batman’s logic here… Spanker I feel like I’ve seen the adaptation of this comic in movie before, but it was on the deep end of the internet. Get Em Tiger Sure, we have just a Tiger Boy…. but where is a Tiger MAN? Yes, Jughead …and Archie, what is… Continue reading Comic Book Panels Out of Context Returns
Over the decades Marvel’s mutants have become the some of the most convoluted cast of characters in comics. That brings in writer Johnathan Hickman, who has set his sights on establishing a new status quo that, for the most part, succeeds. Through his first two series House of X and Powers of X, Hickman has reset the mythos of mutants at least ten times. Through a character that will remain nameless to avoid spoilers, Hickman has created one of the better macguffins to be used in recent memory. Allowing readers to experience a series of What If style scenarios as to just how mutants find themselves at the crossroads they now stand. Hickman is able to bring in many classic… Continue reading The State of X
Sometimes it takes video game designers many attempts to properly adapt a concept well. Take one concept that designers seem to be a tad amiss to over the years. I am, of course, talking about the oldest comic book superhero in existence, Superman. Sure, there has been a few decent Superman games over the years such as Taito’s 1980s Arcade classic or the 16 bit hidden gem Death & Return of Superman. They may have been decent games, but did they actually capture what Superman is all about? Of course, there is the most infamous example of both a bad Superman game and a bad game in general, Superman 64. Twitter user @replicantpinky summed up the game design easily in… Continue reading How do you solve a problem like a Superman Video Game?
Here is this months’s batch of comic panels. I scour the internet for comic book panels that made me raise an eyebrow or two. A lot with no context provided, and some that are just wild no matter how you slice it. Superman I can best sum up my reaction to this one with this gif The Incredible Hulk Seems like someone should investigate Bruce Banner, but maybe that is just me. Garfield Not enough facepalms in the world for old Jon Arbuckle here, but I’ll try… Vintage Comics Ahhh…before the days of the smartphone, the internet, and instant messaging ruined that for basically everyone. The Punisher Hey, I am above Harambe jokes, just so you know. SO GOOD DAY… Continue reading Wildest Comic Panels Found February 2019
The comic book panels columns return in a new monthly format. I scour the internet for comic book panels that are funny. A lot with no context provided, and some that are just funny no matter how you slice it. A Tale as old as time… Deleted scene from the M. Night Shyamalan film, “The Happening” Tina Belcher has really found her voice lately… How I feel about guys who posts comments on lady’s pics on the internet… And that, my kids, is how I met your mother… It is not just apes that react this way… Hipsters…. Hipsters Never Change… Politics in a nutshell… Reddit in a nutshell… We all have been there, amirite? Me when I was 11… Continue reading The Best Comic Panels To Be Found January 2019
In this series of fan service reviews, the first book I had reviwed was Tarot. Then I did Death Rattler. Now here comes my third comic I am reviewing for “The Plot,” Vampblade. These are what is called “Fan service” comic books. What is Fan service? Basically, if it has little plot-redeeming value, but makes the viewer sit up and take notice, it’s probably fan service in one form or another.” There have been arguments made for and against this type of art in comics. I’m personally not going to argue it either way. However, I always wondered, “Are these comics even any good?” So here we go, reading this for The Plot. The Cover First, I picked this book… Continue reading Reading it for “The Plot”: Vampblade
Superheroes have had some great video games over the years. Here are 10 I can think of just off the top of my head that are definitely worth playing: Spider-Man (PS4) Spider-Man 2 (PS1/PS2) Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (Xbox 360/PS3) Spider-Man: Maximum Carnage (SNES) Batman Arkham City (Xbox 360/PS3) Batman Arkham Asylum (Xbox 360/PS3) The Adventures of Batman & Robin (SNES/Genesis) Lego Batman (Xbox 360/PS3) Marvel Ultimate Alliance (Xbox 360/PS3) X-Men Origins: Wolverine (Xbox 360/PS3) As you can look on some of those true all time greats, there seems to be a common theme. 80% of the ones I pulled out on the spot there are starring Batman and Spiderman. While I can’t complain about how great those games are, I… Continue reading 4 Superheroes I’d Like to See Have Their Own Video Game
Well, work life has been crazy for myself, and I haven’t had much of a chance to sit down and write blogs all summer. Finally, deadlines have been met and we are going to get back to it. This is me dipping my toe in the water to see it is warm with a new edition of a fun and simple series on GeekWithThat.com… Comic Book Panels Out of Context! Question of the Day That’s the question I ask when I see Bowsette cosplay and art. Dating Life Really, the lady’s look in the lower left hand corner says everything that needs to be said… Stamina is Important Those are certainly some bragging rights… Typical Every Day Issues Maybe he… Continue reading They’re Back! Comics Out of Context
It has been a busy month here for the Geek, but I pulled through and I am making sure we still get this month’s installment of Comic Book Panels Out of Context. There is a lot of Spider-Man in this one. However, according to the box office, you can never get enough Spider-Man reboots as it is. There is him and more of our favorite caped heroes in this edition. The Beast: College Years Beast, I’m pretty sure that’s how a lot of young ladies trying to pay for that Nurse degree feel too. There’s no shame in doing what you have to do. Some Feel This Way As long as it is not unsolicited, then it is okay…… Continue reading Going Crazy For Comic Panels Out of Context
