Original Wolverine Comic Art To Go to Auction

As we’ve reported before on TGD, there have been a number of geek auctions in the last several years, and for the geek who has big bucks, some incredible stuff has been sold.

Star Trek Theme Park Opening in 2015

At this point, we should all be surprised there hasn’t been a Star Trek theme park yet. A Star Wars theme park in Disneyland is certainly understandable, same thing with the Avatar land, which will be opening at Disney in 2017, yet somehow we haven’t had a land of Trek until now.

(He was replaced by I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence.) 

Sleepy Hollow Going Strong, But Is Revolution In Trouble?

It’s been a great year for genre TV, and as a long time horror fan, I’m especially ecstatic to see it making a big return to the small screen. In this regard, not only is the new series Sleepy Hollow a hit, it’s also officially the first hit show of the fall season.

XBox One to launch with two bundle options: FIFA 14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts

At the Gamescon Convention in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft announced plans to offer FIFA 14 in Europe for Xbox One pre-orders. The company also spoke about the slate of games that will be available at launch. Zumba Fitness is very unlikely, highly unlikely, to be in a bundle offering in a sign that Microsoft just doesn't get the XBox mom market.

How Iron Man helped crush Batman and Superman
