An easy way to inspire someone in the kitchen is to give them a cookbook they'll love. If you're a geek, that means cooking up the kinds of things you'd find in sci-fi, comic books, and fantasy novels. Since the holidays are great time to give cookbooks and try new recipes, how about taking one of these geek finds for a test?
In line for lunch, waiting for the car mechanic, or on a park bench, anywhere is the perfect place to catch up on a Summer comic-book reading list today in celebration of Read Comics in Public Day. First created to commemorate the birthday of Jack Kirby, the legend behind Marvel Comics' early days, the holiday is all about sharing a love of the art with the rest of the world. Use the #readcomicsinpublic hashtag to share photos of you reading a favorite series outside for everyone to see. Here are a few of the comic-reading snaps we've seen so far.
Fun! Marvel comics is releasing a fashion comic named Models Inc. on Aug. 26 starring Tim Gunn. Similar to his role on Project Runway, Tim will act as the "wise one," helping to solve the crime of a young set designer murdered during New York Fashion Week — all while wearing an Iron Man suit! So far, we know Models Inc. will feature three ladies: Millicent Collins (Millie the Model), Patsy Walker (Hellcat), and Spiderman's Mary Jane. Sounds like a fashion paper version of Charlie's Angels.
