Excited for Insurgent? So are we! It’s not only going to be an awesome film, but a tie-in to a huge GGBNYC brunch event in May (can you guess what that might be?) And that’s why we’re giving away passes to an advanced screening.*
Inspired by the Batgirl team and their commitment to improving, GGB rolls out the #GGBDoBetter* Campaign
2014 is over and 2015 is shaping up to be a great year for Geek Girl Brunch. We’re launching chapters in cities all over the world and we could not be more excited! Giving ourselves the opportunity and excuse to make IRL friends with fellow passionate geeks was our genesis, after all! But we also want to make sure that Brunch is not just Brunch. GGB is about creating a community, providing a network and establishing a safe space for identifying Geek Girls to talk to each other. We can’t ignore the problems we have all been faced with over the past year, as individuals, as a community, as a city, as a nation, as citizens of Earth.
Geek Girl Brunch has afforded us an incredible opportunity to highlight a select few Etsy sellers each brunch and introduce them to our guests and to all of you. We’re still wearing and displaying so many of these products and thought the holiday season would be a great time to highlight some of our favorites. Whether you’re looking for art, wearables, or some geek chic stocking stuffers, look no further.

Her latest series for Image, Pretty Deadly, is a breathtaking blend of beauty and brutality. You can’t know comics and not know the legend that is Kelly Sue and we were very fortunate to have been able score an interview with the legend.
It’s time to get your mahō shōjo on with us! “How do I do that,” you ask? And just who are these “Magical Girls” we’re obsessing over?
Here’s a quick run down of some of the classics and who to watch where.
CARDCAPTOR SAKURA (AKA CARDCAPTORS)
My personal favorite! Sakura discovers she has magical powers after accidentally releasing the Clow cards from the ancient book they’d been sealed in. With the help of Kero (Cerberus), the guardian of the book, Sakura sets out to retrieve all the cards before disaster strikes. If you have friends that have never seen any anime before, this is a brilliant gateway anime as it effortlessly blends in shonen elelments and focuses on emotions and a-typical relationships, making for a lot of intrigue. Speaking of emotions, check out the fan-made trailer below and get ready to feel a bunch. Available on: Anime Season Continue reading
