The Waking: Dream’s End #1

The HIT series that redefines the Zombie genre returns! Years have passed since the events of The Waking took place.

Murder has become practically extinct in a world armed with the knowledge that those who are murdered will return from the dead to take the lives of those guilty…

But within a new world comes a new kind of killer. And he must be stopped! From the writer and creator of the Wonderland trilogy and Fly comes a return to the horror that never sleeps.

The first volume of The Waking was such a big hit, that a follow-up was inevitable.  With the dead coming back to avenge themselves, it’s pretty much made homicide detectives obsolete.  Which is exactly where Vanessa Pelagreno finds herself now, years after her initial involvement, only her problem is much bigger...

Geek-o-Rama’s Geeky Gift Guide Part 3

1. Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side [Vault Edition] [Hardcover]
Price – $99.99 (Amazon.com)
Having gotten a similar product like “The Jedi Path” , I can’t pass up the opportunity to bring balance to my bookshelf.  Much like “The Jedi Path”, “Book of Sith” comes in a special container-case that harbors the book along with a number of removable Sith “artifacts” (7, actually). Once opened, the motorized case operates with authentic lights and Star Wars sounds to reveal the book to you. With hidden secrets and madness of the Sith Order hidden inside, “Know thy enemy” has never been more dangerous or fun!

2. Galactus Maquette

Comic Geek Speak

The cast/crew:
Bryan Deemer, Peter Rios, Shane Kelly, Jamie D, Matt, Adam “Murd” Murdough and Brian “Pants” Christman.

Comic Geek Speak (CGS) was started in March 2005 when Bryan and Peter decided to try their hand at the then-new world of podcasting. They quickly invited their friends to join them and then the show was complete.

 CGS initially released one or two episodes a week, but before long they were cranking out three. Nowadays, the CGS crew produces daily episodes (Monday through Friday) ranging from regular episodes to more focused episodes, such as Footnotes, World of Toys or Exploring Bede.

CGS is far more than just a few friends in a room with microphones...
