    Mai Nigga RC is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!1

  3. Never heard of him. Very interesting trip down the obscure street.

  4. i love it when he does obscure comic characters

  5. Huh, I didn’t know RC covered comics as well as cartoons. Anyway, thanks for the Brother Power review- you filled in the gaps of my knowledge about him. Why am I NOT surprised that he was not handled well recently? Probably because DC (and comics in general) have kind of lost their focus in recent years. 🙁

    Someday I’m gonna get that filthy animal.

    -THE END-

    Oh wait, wrong Geek.

  7. the notorious white moth

    The story arc with the Geek picking up the personas of those around him actually fits perfectly with his nature. He is a living doll, an inanimate objected granted life – and true to that nature, he is mimetic. He becomes whatever is projected onto him. In the revolution of the 60’s, he was a hippy. In the Reaganomics era, he was a businessman. In the 90’s, he was a tortured wreck trying to rediscover himself. No matter the setting, he is counterculture personified. The Geek is a cipher by design. Ultimately he is no one, which means he can be anyone. I’d even argue that’s one of his superpowers.

  8. two videos a month, two videos a year, same thing I suppose.

  9. I’ve never heard of this character before! I kinda like him. =D
    Love your videos CR, I always learn something new!

  10. Nice to see your still on the site CR. I always have enjoyed the information you put out in your videos.

  11. I remember his entry in the Who’s Who’s comics, but I never knew they did anything else with him. Interesting episode, thank you!

  12. And of course The Geek’s greatest claim to fame, having a sweet name.
