Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – March 2016 Review

Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – March 2016 Review and Giveaway

Geek Fuel March 201640 minutes — that is how long it took for the 2016 San Diego Comic Convention to sell out. In 2015 the tickets sold out in just under 60 minutes and this is a standard every year. Each year the geek universe descends upon San Diego in amounts many, it is also a great time to people watch.

The annual convention is held downtown, and very close to a place flush with bars and restaurants. This makes for the perfect opportunities to people watch and to meet friends that are in from out-of-town. The people watching is always fun and always entertaining, and this is largely due to the amount of people who dress up.

I have always had an appreciation for the people who dress up, down to each detail.  Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription Box is a monthly reminder of this yearly convention. With the constant presence and reminders of the upcoming Batman and Superman I was eager to see Geek Fuels contribution. As with previous months I was eager to see what the red box contained and as usual I was not disappointed.

Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – January 2016 Review

January 2016 Box ContentsSince I live in San Diego each year we have the geek universe descend upon us in the form of the yearly Comic Convention or Comic-Con as San Diegan’s call it. I was lucky enough to be able to attend “Con” back in the early 90’s when it was more comic book driven, and less big budget.

I think back on these early days, and I realize how far i have come in my geek evolution. Back in the early 90’s the big budget movies were the only ones that I really cared about. Now I appreciate the art, the cinema and story behind some of the smaller movies. I also now realize the talent and effort involved in creating the comics. Also back in those early days, the role-playing world was represented which worked well for me since my friends were role-players.

I have mentioned in the past that I am a nostalgic person. I often I wish I could travel back and watch and attend that first “Con” with the knowledge I have today. Each month I get my education expanded when I receive the monthly Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription Box celebrates those cartoon days. I was eager to open this months box and as with previous months I was eager to see what the box contained and I was not disappointed.

Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – December 2015 Review

Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription – December 2015 Review

December box contents Geek FuelI remember a time when cartoons were nothing more than a Saturday morning ritual. I remember those days before I knew what television seasons were, ratings and what a true solid story line was. There was a simplicity to what we watched, and the characters we loved.

Flash forward 30 years and the cartoon landscape is much different then it was when I was a child and when I stop, and consider, I think it is an over all positive thing. With the advance of cartoons being made into live action movies, this opens a child’s imagination in ways our minds could only dream of. My favorite live action adaptation of recent years has to be The Transformers trilogy – what stated as, what I considered, a boy cartoon has become something I love.

I am a nostalgic person and I often I wish I could travel back and experience the simplicity of the cartoon watching era and I am happy to say that this month Geek Fuel Monthly Subscription Box celebrates those cartoon days. I was eager to open this months box and as with previous months I was eager to see what the box contained and I was not disappointed.
