I’ll be honest; I hate filtering. I hate that there is so much crap my kids can be exposed to that I HAVE to filter, 24/7 on every single form of media just to make sure we stay within the realm of age-appropriate content. It’s frustrating. Exhausting. It’s flat out annoying. It’s annoying for ANY parent, but I think it’s especially so for a geek mom. Even more so when you are fairly conservative in your line of thinking when it comes to what you will allow your children to experience. When you are adamant about timing of exposure to certain stories, behaviors and experiences, it can make momming pretty challenging when all you really want to do is immerse yourself, and your family, deep within the four color well of never ending awesome. Now, I know plenty of geek moms who don’t think twice about it, let their kids watch whatever and their children are perfectly well behaved, well adjusted humans with good attitudes, so what am I so worried about??

In two weeks, zombies will take over Redlands’ Fox Events Center for the Third Annual Inland Empire Zombie Beauty Pageant presented by Forbidden Panel. Ten undead contestants will compete in talent, swimsuit, and evening gown categories before one survives to win the crown. The I.E. Zombie Beauty Queen will make appearances at comic conventions and horror shows throughout the year with Forbidden Panel to visit with fans and turn the unlucky ones into the walking dead. The show will also have a junior division featuring six contestants showing off their zombie skills to win the youth crown. The competition is judged completely by audience votes. The ZOMBIE KILL SQUAD cosplay group will be providing protection from the zombie contestants throughout the event.
What’s up Comic Readers? It’s been awhile since I’ve been at the writing table for the comics column. But now I’m back with 3 new comics to talk about. The big tights and capes in comics have their stuff going on, a civil war (again) for one publishing giant and the beginning of what looks like another ”crisis” at the other publisher. The people over at BOOM studios aren’t going to be out done by DC or Marvel. They’re bringing titles to shelves that can compete with the big guys. This week we get Fanboys vs. Zombies #3, a new title – Extermination, and Supurbia #4 – the “Finale.”
