This week we escape to adventure, both above the 49th parallel and into the depths of space!
Join Andrew and Mr. Green this Friday as they bring you another fantastic voyage into geekdom. And, as usual, they won’t be travelling alone. Joining the duo via phone will be indie comic creator Scott Sawyer! Scott is currently having success in the land of crowdfunding as his kickstarter for North, a new comic about a team of Canadian superheroes, was funded in 8 days. There’s still many days left in the campaign, so now instead of just 1 issue of the comic being published, the goal is to print 2 issues! Scott will be on to tell us more about this new band of heroes and what amazing stories await you if you support the kickstarter. Here’s a quick bio on Scott:
A consummate story-teller born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, Scott Sawyer is a film-maker with several films written, optioned and/or produced, including his feature film One Good Reason. He has spent the last five years writing and illustrating the first volume of NORTH… a new story honouring the best of comics we grew up with and marrying those simple pleasures with more evolved story expectations. A mild-mannered father by day and diplomatic doorman by night, NORTH has been a labor of love forged in the hours between.
For more info on North, check out the kickstarter page and support the project…..and be sure to listen this Friday for our interview with Scott.
But daring Canadians won’t be our only focus this week as we also look towards the stars. Star Trek: Beyond hits theatres this Friday and we’ll be bringing you our review that very same night. Will this be the film that brings back the Trekkers that were soured by the last installment? Or will the fast and furious nature of director Justin Lin sabotage the franchise? Find out what our experts think this Friday.
All this, plus the news and reviews that you’ve come to expect, right here on Geek Hard. Listen LIVE! This Friday at 7pm Eastern on the station that aced the kobayashi maru with flying colours, www.realityradio101.com.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
