Geekery

I read and collect comics, I play RPGs, I watch anime and cartoons, I read fantasy and science fiction. I find Chewbacca so awesome I named my dog after him. I’ve worn my Samurai 7 t-shirt to work. I go to both Chicago comic shows every year. I’m not “into” video games, but I’ve been known to spend four hours at a stretch playing Okami.

In short, I’m a geek and proud of it.

Like any good geek, I have certain genres, series, and characters that I hold dear. As you can see above, I’m a die-hard Star Wars fan. I’ve even apologized for the prequels as much as any intelligent, rational person can. It incorporates so many of the key elements I adore in my geekery–epic scope, magic (especially when combined with technology), created worlds, even an arctic environment. Plus Wookiees.

Other characters and series I’ve grown fond of over the years are Indiana Jones, Conan, the Dark Tower, Lone Wolf, Buffy/Angel, Predator, Army of Darkness, and, of course, Lord of the Rings. I consume any of them in any medium I can get my grubby little hands on. I’m also a fan of the post-apocalyptic and urban fantasy genres.
