Alright, the crap has been sorted through, and now it’s clear sailing to get onto the best nerd stuff of 2015! This year saw some pretty great things hit our comic stands, movie theaters, and TV’s, and it was pretty hard to narrow this bad boy down to a manageable list. But I think I’ve got all the major awesome things that have come our way in 2015, and of course, if I missed something, feel free to yell at me about it. So, without further ado, the BEST OF 2015!!

Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)
Starring: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher
Directed By: JJ Abrams
This is a tough review to write. Not just because I’m not going to spoil anything plot wise about The Force Awakens, the movie that is arguably the most hyped up film of the past ten years, but also because of just how much love I have for Star Wars. So, if you’re skeptical at all about JJ Abrams’ revival of the beloved franchise, take the fact that I’ve worn a different Star Wars shirt each day of this week while I waited for today as your “grain of salt”. But I honestly feel that even if I didn’t already have a deep seeded passion for the Galaxy Far, Far, Away that I’d be confident in saying this: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a fantastic return to form for the series, and one of the best times I’ve had in the theater in a long time.

Can you feel that? It’s the sound of thousands of nerds shaking in anticipation after watching the latest Star Wars trailer. A day before we got our poster reveal, and now it’s just a matter of 2 months until we see more of Han, Chewie, Leia, and (hopefully) Luke. But let’s inspect that poster a little, shall we?

I’ll be honest; I didn’t think there was going to be much to get me excited at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. With the exception of the WB panel, there didn’t seem to be a lot of hype going out pre-show. Marvel Studios wasn’t going, Disney wasn’t going to premiere a new Force Awakens trailer, and many of the comics publishers had announced their big publishing movements BEFORE the event even kicked off. It just seemed like SDCC 2015 was going to be a big bore.
Man, was I wrong. From a spectacular Batman V Superman trailer to news of two of some of my favorite comic book characters crossing over, there was tons of awesome stuff to come out of Comic Con this year. And we’ll kick it off with a team-up book I’ve been clamoring for since 2007… Read the rest of this entry
My, my, my. What a week for nerd news. Not only have we gotten a ton of information on Star Wars The Force Awakens, Battlefront, and Rogue One, but we’ve also gotten a brand spankin’ new trailer for the upcoming restart of the franchise. Not to be outdone, we also got a look at Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice this week as well.
Actually, Batman V Superman was outdone. By Star Wars. Read the rest of this entry
Alright, we’ve looked at the best and worst things of 2014, so now it’s time to look into the future and obsess over the movie, TV, and comic events that are coming to us in the upcoming year! 2015 is going to be absolutely massive, so you’ll probably need help figuring out what things you should be REALLY excited for. Well, fear not, cause I’m here to help. And we’ll start things off with Marvel’s next big “universe changing event”… Read the rest of this entry
The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens has finally arrived, giving us our first glimpse into the film that will either restore the Star Wars franchise to it’s former glory, or make the fans of the original trilogy even more enraged. But enough chatting, watch it! Read the rest of this entry
