Now more than ever, with the help of comic book movies/TV and the internet combined, superheroes and sci-fi/fantasy are known and adored worldwide. Nerd communities on numerous points of the planet are becoming stronger and more identifiable by the minute. Here at CBI, we not only welcome, but actually encourage bringing all of these far apart groups a bit closer together–to celebrate our diversity and yet our common love for comic book culture and the stories we all live by.
Geek News, reviews, bloggy material, videos, trailers, podcasts, stuff from other countries. That’s what we’ve got.
