This Week in Geek 6/18
Wednesday is here again but unfortunately it’s not new comic day for everyone. The flooding in the midwest has screwed up shipping schedules, pushed books back, and in some extreme cases has wiped out whole comic shops altogether. If your head is above water then count yourself lucky.
This Week in Geek 5/29
Welcome to a rare new comic’s Thursday edition of This Week in Geek.

The Comic Speculator: Doom vs Iron Man
With the Iron Man movie premiering this week, I have goose bumps just thinking about it, I thought it would be a good time to highlight one of my favorite runs of ol’ shell-head’s comic. In the 80’s David Micheline and Bob Layton redefined Tony Stark’s character making him the Iron Man we know today.

Every Mother Has One
Nearly every mother has one – the box filled with grade-school artwork, Boy Scout merit badges and years of Mother’ s Day cards. Whether homemade creations with crayon and construction paper or store-bought sentiments, Mother’s Day cards are simply too tough for most moms to toss, and many mothers hold on to cards for decades.
