I am a massive Beatles fan and relished the opportunity to geek out with Sidebar Nation’s Swain Hunt about Dark Horse’s “The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story” in a Sidebar podcast. This truly exquisite and poignant graphic novel tells the story of the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, the man who played a central role in making them icons and struggled greatly in his personal life as a closeted gay man. Written by Vivek J. Tiwary and gloriously illustrated by lead artist Andrew C. Robinson (with notable contributions by Kyle Baker), it’s one of the best things I’ve read this year. We loved the hell out of it, so check us out as we discuss the many highlights.

E. and I are counting the days until DragonCon. I have actually got little numbers on each day of my calender and I check them off as we get closer. This is how excited I am. DragonCon is one of the most special places in the universe with an amazing celebratory spirit, your favorite sci-fi stars, brilliant comic artists and ALL of the cosplay. Speaking of cosplay … I will be Black Canary again, and Erika will be cosplaying for the FIRST TIME.
Our friends at The Unique Geek are lovers of DragonCon, too. Every year they do a countdown podcast – 50 Days of DragonCon. This year, Girls Gone Geek is Day 20 and we talk cosplay.
You can listen to the podcast HERE.

There are plenty of comics podcasts out there, but the guys behind the Sidebar Nation chatfest — Dwight, Swain and Adrian — are some of the most knowledgeable, opinionated and flat-out funny geeks ever to rock the mic. We had the pleasure of meeting Dwight at Dragon*Con, and Swain moderated the excellent Dark Knight panel. Based out of Atlanta, the Sidebar Nation crew has interviewed some of the biggest names in comics, and their fandom runs deep. They’re super cool to boot, and I learn something every time I tune in. G3 chatted it up with the guys via e-mail, and they were kind enough to answer our nosy questions. If you haven’t listened to their podcast, check it out at their site or via iTunes. You’ll be glad you did. Continue reading
The hilarious Dana, host of the internet talk show Stimulated Boredom, was gracious enough to have me on his show this week. He is super effing nice, and I had a blast.
We talked about Comic-Con, comic book culture, cheesecake, and Girls Gone Geek. Props are given to my favorite artists, writers, and characters. I run down my list of must read books for prospective Padawans. I also felt compelled to let the world know why E. Peterman rocks and other random things about this fangirl’s world.
Check me out as I wax geek with Dana. Please and Thank you.
