K: BAY. WINDOW. D: huhwha? K: I said BAY WINDOW. That window that extends out into the yard and looks extra classy? Yes. That is the window I want.

His father, a Minister, and mother, a Congresswoman, have spent his 18 years of life readying him for destroying “He...

Geek culture isn’t geek culture anymore; it’s just culture. Amazing, isn’t it? I invite you to sit back and remember a time not that long ago, when comics were not king. Back in 1998, Marvel Comics were just coming out of the throes of bankruptcy. Looking for a way to regain that spark of something special, Marvel outsourced four of...
