I am very pleased to bring to you a brief review of Border Town Comic Con 2018. I had the absolute pleasure of attending this convention with my 15 year old son this last weekend March 17-18, 2018. Border Town Comic Con was held at the Four Rivers Cultural Center in Ontario, Oregon. The cultural center is practically on the border between Oregon and Idaho, hence the name, Border Town Comic Con. This was the con’s third year running and the first year in which it was expanded into two days.Read more
As of March 3rd, 2018, it’s one year we’ve been welcoming all geek enthusiasts and nerd aficionados. Hoary heights ho!
You know, many wonder just what a “geek” or a “nerd” is. Well, being SUCH an old duffer that I can (sorta) remember the time before Nintendo had any consoles, this here’s an Igor who can tell you!
MasonicVader here with another review, this time about a phenomenal documentary about a real-life David vs Goliath story. A documentary that rewrites an origin story of one our most beloved superheroes: Batman. Not the story that we all know about Bruce Wayne/Batman, but of who created that origin. I give you Hulu’s 2017 documentary Batman and Bill. For 75 years when we watched, read, or listened to anything about Batman, you would always see Batman by Bob Kane. Bob Kane was an artist for Detective Comics, which was the predecessor to DC comics. In 1939, Bob presented Batman, and took sole creative credit. For the next seven decades, Bob to that creative credit and became a cultural icon.Read more
I recently binged the latest offering of Marvel’s many-tentacled universe, Runaways. Confused by the fact that I had to dig up my old Hulu account rather than bask in the warm red glow of Netflix, I started with only mediocre hopes for the show. To be clear, of the writers on this site, I am one of the least comic book experienced. Sure, I’ve read a bunch of Walking Dead, continuing stories from Buffy and Angel, all of Preacher (after watching the first season of AMC’s awesome show), but only after being drawn in by other media. If I like a property enough, I’ll go back and check out it’s origins. Looks like I need to check if Amazon has these books on Kindle.Read more
It was 1997, Todd McFarlane was one of ( if not the) top creator going in comic books. Having previously rose to acclaim working on Amazing Spider-Man, and being considered the co-creator of Venom. One of 5 originators of Image Comics a brand that gave the creators ownership of the characters they made. The main character he created for the Image brand was Spawn. A story of a man that was not the greatest of people prior to his death. Coming back and wreaking vengeance as a hell spawn. While fighting the inner turmoil of correcting who he was prior. The comic was extremely popular, and so was everything Todd got involved with. A toy line, and HBO cartoon about the character where well received.Read more
We are back, with our first Nerd Fight of the year! Back to start another year of epic nerd fights for 2018. Last year featured so many fun and epic fights we just couldn’t stop the fun this year.So welcome back one and all, and I hope this year proves to be just as great as last. This year we are starting off with what has become a running theme behind the scenes of malice. We have dubbed TheBigPoppaMatt owner of the epic beard of the boys of malice, though others from our group are trying to rival The Epic beard. So we decided what could be more fun then seeing who had the most epic beard in Hollywood 2017. So without further ramblings from me, here are the contestants for the first Nerd Fight of 2018:Read more
The holidays are over. All the geeks and nerds from Malice Corp have spent time with their families and loved ones. Now it’s time to fill that void in our souls, and get back to talking “All Things Nerd ” with you on MaliceCast Season 2. I’ve been re-watching our first season of MaliceCastRead more
Good Day to all the Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!
Typing up articles recently has eluded me, and I am glad to be back. Discussing the current news surrounding 21st Century Fox and Walt Disney Co. Speculation has been running rampant about Disney buying a large chunk of Fox. Now at this time these have just been talks. Official deals or paperwork are not in place. Why are these talks so important to pop culture and geekdom? If a deal is made on these talks, as a result we will have our merry mutants and comic books first family in their rightful cinematic universe. Yes, the Fantastic Four and X-Men would be part of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.Read more
Welcome back everyone, to our new poll for the week. Last week saw the fight for the best horror movie franchise, in honor of Friday the 13th. We had a ton of fun reminiscing with people over some of our favorite horror movies. A lot of wonderful discussions were had with voters over the last week. So thanks to everyone who came out and participated you made the week a lot of fun. This week we celebrate the return of some of our overall favorite shows. CW has returned, answering questions that left fans reeling at the end of their respective season last year. But who had the most triumphant return back from hiatus? This is the question we leave to you dear voters. So let us see which show reigns supreme.Read more
As October 22, 2017 approaches it’s time to get excited and talk about season 8 of AMC’s The Walking Dead.Read more
So I’ve been on a Preacher kick lately. I binge watched the show 3 episodes in to season 2. This show is a wild ride and often does things that people won’t expect. Having never read the comics, I thoroughly enjoy a show that keeps me so often surprised at what I just watched. But Season 2 is far superior to Season 1 for one reason. And that is the introduction of The Grail, and it’s soldiers Lady Featherstone And F.J. Hoover. The 2 of them on screen have a weird chemistry together that works when they are in scenes together.Read more
Daniel Newman is one of the newer members on the show The Walking Dead. So I thought it would be fun to shine a light on just who and what he brings The Walking Dead. Daniel was born in Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in a small rural farm town outside the city. He attended Yale and William Espers acting school to study the art. He has been a model and musician. His band, the Vanderbilts, is producing a rock album with Legendary Producer Tony Shimkin. So it appears that he is going to be a very busy guy here in the near future between this and next season TWD.Read more
Guess who’s back? Back Again? That’s right to all you Tennant fans out there, he will be back on Season 2 of Jessica Jones. Apparently not even death can keep this bad guy off the screen.Read more
So last week Malice cast brought you how we ranked Joss Whedon’s television shows. But seeing how he has a couple movies coming out on the horizon, we thought we would take a stab at ranking his movie projects as well. So here is how the rankings shook out amongst the cast at malice corp.Read more

One of the biggest names floating around the Nerdverse right now has to be Joss Whedon. So this sparked a debate amongst the writers here at Malice Corp on what our personal favorite Joss Whedon projects have been. Debates were sparked and battles were raged, but in the aftermath we polled our writers and the rankings were filed. So let’s take a look and see if how we ranked matches up with our readers.Read more
The Best Comic-Con Fandom Nerd Fight has come to an end. It is time to crown the ruler of the con. This current Nerd Fight was a two week battle from Sunday July 23, 2017 – Friday August 4, 2017. Fandom’s are a large part of what makes a comic convention. People wanting to see the latest that their favorite thing has to offer. People are true fanatics planning everything around making sure they get new items tied to that property. Sleeping in line over night just to see their favorite celebrities. It truly is wonder to behold. So who is the best Comic-Con Fandom?Read more

I hope everyone is doing well. Welcome back to another issue of my quest to watch 100 movies in the theater this year. I’m sure lot’s of you are already excited about this film, and seeing Spidey come back to the MCU is just one of many reasons why you should be excited to go see this movie immediately.
A bold move by Sony
First off. I am very excited that Sony, and Marvel, agreed to bring Spider-man back into the MCU. This has to be the best combination since peanut butter and jelly, or bacon and bacon. They managed to find a perfect combination of films here. Lighthearted enough to keep the kiddos entertained – yet still threatening, and dangerous enough for the fanboys to make sure their nerd boners fly at full mast for the entire film.
So for all you netflix bingers out there like me, I am dropping you some juicy details on what you can expect from Netflix this year. The streaming giant is slowly infiltrating one of the nerdiest events on earth and rightly so. With everything they have planned to reveal at their panel for 2017 SDCC it looks as like they are going to be hugely popular once again this year. So let’s take a little look see at the teasers for this years panel:Read more
Today is Independence Day in the United States of America. The 4th of July marks a holiday where we celebrate our independence as a country, and getting together with family and friends. Whether it be BBQs, drink some brews, and watch fireworks it’s a great time to have. But there is all a very nerd thing attributed to the 4th. Today marks the B-day of our favorite star spangled comic book hero.Read more
There is a reason this is one of my favorite humans on the planet. He sings, He dances, he is creative, funny and generous. He has no shame, and willingly shares himself with his fans via Social Media. What can John Barrowman not accomplish at this point? Well you can’t add writing to the list. He has been writing for a while now with his sister. They have written comics covering the backstory of his Malcolm Merlyn Character. For anyone who knows anything about Barrowman, the fact that he is a comic book geek is common knowledge. So getting to play a role like Merlyn and write comics about him? That is the ultimate fanboy dream right there.Read more
So there has been a lot of news dropped in the last 24 hours on the next installment of the X-men movie. Fox has officially formalized plans for Dark Phoenix, the next installment of the X-Men franchise. Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) are all locked in and set to reprise their roles. Jessica Chastain is currently in talks with directors to play the Villain in the upcoming Movie.Read more
If any of you out there have been driving yourself nuts over Cap’s fate worry no more. I have been spending the last few months wondering if Captain America was going to be killed off. Contracts were up, and no talks were in the works. So what was the Marvel Cinematic Universe going to look like after the next Avengers movies?Read more
In amongst all the Wonder Woman hype, I want to remind y’all of Susan Storm-Richards, A.K.A. The Invisible Woman. No, not because of Jessica Alba. Having watched Jessica in Dark Angel, I blame poorly written characterization on her foray into the Fantastic Four. My choice to vote for in this week’s Nerd Fight is the best performance of Sue because -from the beginning of the Fantastic Four in 1961 to 2017 where her book has been canceled, but she lives on in other Marvel adventures- I look at her and I see what exemplifies women: powerful patience, unyielding resolve, and ferocious defense of those they love.Read more
Favorite Female Comic Book Character Favorite Hero/Anti-Hero/Villain Hello all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados! We are back with anotherRead more
Thank-you all for joining me on my Quest to watch 100 movies in the theater in one year. If you have read any of my other entries, you know I also like to suggest if you should enjoy a few adult beverages to make the movies I see more enjoyable.
Today, I have a special entry in my quest for 100. Last night I got to enjoy one of my favorite genres in movies today, a super hero film. What made this particular Super Hero film special though is the fact Wonder Woman did something that the DC Universe has been struggling to accomplish with their previous films Batman VS. Superman and arguably even before that with Man of Steel.Read more

The X-Men news train keeps on rolling. Last week we got confirmation for two characters in the New Mutants movie. 20th Century Fox has seen that people are still enamored with the film franchise, and are rabid for anything they can get. With that being the case we got two more big news drops. One about the T.V. show The Gifted, and casting for Dark Phoenix.Read more

Please note that some of this article should be for mature readers only. Reader discretion is advised. Greetings Flame Heads. It is with sadness that I report that the latest series of Ghost Rider has been cancelled. However, the future of Ghost Rider will never be in doubt. We just have to wait a little longer. Like the fabled phoenix, Ghost Rider will rise from the ashes born anew and vengeance will be served. Ghost Rider has this feature built in him that allows any writer to change the person who bears the burden of the Spirt of Vengeance. You can see an article I wrote regarding this mechanism here (I also talk about Ghost Rider’s relationship to Doctor Who). With the cancelling of Ghost Rider, I am looking at why Ghost Rider is appealing to artists and writers. But I also want to keep an honest eye as to why the series cannot grab enough readers to maintain the seriesRead more
I was thinking before I started talking about the TV show I’d talk a little about myself first and why I want to talk about The Walking Dead. Anyone that knows me knows I had a big fear of anything zombies. The Night of the Living Dead was a movie that gave me nightmares more then Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elem Street. I do love my horror movies but anything with zombies in it would get me to sleep with the lights on. So a few years back I had a friend that I played Aion with ( non-zombie game). She had talked me into playing Left 4 Dead with her. She had help me get over my fear of zombie by making me kill them in that game. She also talk me into The Walking Dead and from then on I’ve become a fan of the show. I did just finish up the season last Sunday and now stuck waiting for the next season which will not be back on AMC till October. Yes we got to wait to find out what happens and we’re left with another cliff hanger which any fan knows they like to do to us.Read more
