Today’s look at some amazing Geek art comes from the brilliant mind and brush of Darren Tan. Enjoy!
Geek Lit: Thicker Than Water (Felix Castor Book 4)
Gabbing Geek snared a great interview with author Mike Carey for his novel The Girl With All The Gifts a while back. If you haven’t read it, you probably should. Carey’s a great writer in the world of horror and dark fantasy, and if you haven’t read Girl or his great Vertigo series Lucifer, then you’re probably missing out on something.
He also has this dark, fun urban fantasy/horror series about a London-based exorcist named Felix “Fix” Castor. Review with possible SPOILERS for the fourth book in said series, Thicker Than Water, after the cut.

It’s A Dead Man’s Psychedelic Zombie Party!
Yikers! I went to a Phish concert the other day, but didn’t experience this kind of trippy psychedelic overload! You’ve got to give props of twistinbangs aka Corie Willet for this impressive work. The crazy thing is, she applies it all herself without help. Check out all of our favorites of her creations after the break, and make sure you’re not driving or operating machinery. You have been warned:

Tom Recommends: The Cornetto Trilogy
Among the many interesting “what if’s” that we can ask in regards to the recent Ant-Man, there is the question of how the movie would have turned out had the original director, Edgar Wright, finished the movie he’d worked on for so long. Wright still got a story and script credit for the work, and had parted ways due to some sort of creative differences with Marvel Films. Wright had been linked to the project for ages, well before The Avengers hit the big screen, such that many hoped or assumed Wright’s longtime friend and collaborator Simon Pegg might have been cast as Hank Pym.
Why would anyone assume that? Well, you’d need to see the Cornetto Trilogy to get that.
Probably one of the creepier scenes in any zombie movie is the inevitable moment that a kid zombie appears on screen and the protagonists have to try to take out the little flesh eater.
What if that were played for laughs?
That’s the premise of the horror comedy Cooties, where an elementary school has an outbreak of a zombie virus that only infects the students, leaving a collection of terrified teachers locked inside. Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson star, and there’s a trailer after the cut.
ICYMI-Mystery Geek Box Monthly Subscriptions: The Good, The Bad, and The Geeky
Mystery box subscriptions are all the craze these days. You know what I’m talking about, right? Mystery subscription boxes are mail order boxes filled with stuff that you pay for on a monthly basis. The catch is that you have no idea what is going to be in the box month-to-month. You have to go on faith that what is being delivered, will match the value of what you’re paying for the monthly subscription. And depending on what you subscribe to, you can open your mystery box and it may be filled beyond the value of your monthly fee, or you may come up short. It’s a gamble. And with a million different subscription themes out there; boxes for dogs, for foodies, for grooming, for geeks, etc, etc. You have to be sure you know what you’re getting into. Curious? Read on.

Original Geek Art: Alternative “Death Side” Star Wars
Beery Method is a graphic, branding and marketing company based in Seattle. And I’m not gonna lie, some of their alternative images for our beloved Star Wars characters are a little creeptastic. But that’s what’s fun about it – check out the following pictures that are both crazy-wakadoo Star Wars as well as zombirific – also named “the Deathside collection” after the break:

Non-Geek TV From The Geek Perspective: iZombie
There’s a lot of TV out there, and I don’t know if this week’s show is a Geek Show or not. I mean, it probably could be if it isn’t. I don’t know. It has freakin’ zombies, but the main one is perky and friendly, not stumbling around trying to eat Sheriff Grimes or whatever that guy’s name is. I actually don’t watch The Walking Dead and am basing all my knowledge on said show on the fact I read the first few trades and watched an “Epic Rap Battle of History” between Grimes and Walter White.
Look, this week’s show is iZombie.
