It is largely because of their success that shows like Comic Book Men and most recently King of the Nerds have come into our homes. What I find interesting […]
About The Dork Knight
James aka “The Dork Knight” is a blogger and writer based out of Upstate New York. For James, it all started with a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… when he dragged his mom to see The Empire Strikes Back 10 weeks in a row. He lives and breathes nerd culture. James is proof that a Star Wars fanatic can be a passionate Trekkie as well. So much so James dressed up as Captain Kirk to the premiere of Star Trek VI in 1991 and still has the uniform. When it comes to Comic Books, Sci-Fi or Fantasy whether in print or digital, in the theatre or on my TV screen, I’m all about it and I love it. So bring your Phaser (set to stun), Lightsaber, Sonic Screwdriver, a Wand, Mjolnir or the Ring to rule them all, because this site is for the dork in all of us.

If you Google “Cosplay” you’ll see 146 million search results. If you do the same for “Steampunk”, another 39+ million will come up. That’s a lot of dedication and it shows how much has changed over the years when it comes to indulging your inner dork. Dressing up as your favorite superhero or character has […]
Happy Friday everyone! So, last Friday we bid fair well to Fringe. When Fringe first burst onto the scene in September of 2008, it was often compared to both The X-Files and The Twilight Zone. Not bad company when you think about it. Despite declining ratings, the brainchild of creators J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek), Alex Kurtzman […]

Happy Monday my fellow dorks. Today in the United States we celebrate the legacy of not only an American hero but a hero for humanity, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There has been a handful of films and documentaries that looks into the life of this extraordinary man.
