Geek-o-Rama’s Geeky Gift Guide Part 5

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Up here, the days turn brisk and snow falls and everything is lovely. There are snowball fights and icicles. Even better though are the days and nights curled up on the couch, watching geeky movies to my heart’s content and reading comic books while sipping a cup of hot chocolate. This year, my wish list is geared a bit more towards my kids with a bit of me and a bit of business thrown in.

1. Atari Flashback 4 – This topped my kids’ wishlist for this year. They’re excited to see the “terrible” graphics and to check out some of the games that their mom grew up with. As for me, I think it’s fun to share these things with them as I raise up another generation of geeks. (Retails for about $50)

2. Write or Wrong – Back in April, I got to meet...

The Class

A digital comic. The story is about high school students learning to deal with growing up while being confronted with the ability to use powers and fight a growing evil.

Written by Jaysen Headley and Illustrated by Jessi Jorndan.

The Good:
I will start by saying that I really enjoyed reading this digital comic. The first thing I noticed was how well the dialogue is written. Jaysen does a good job of creating 5 socially different characters. Each with his/her own particular super power. I think that between the 5 main characters, it is written, so that you will be able to connect with at least one of them. I think the writer did a great job in creating somewhat new powers. How they work and how these students deal them is a new take that I have not seen before...
