About this blog

Geek Beat is the brainchild of Tucson native Henry Barajas, who has been immersed in the world of comic books and graphic novels since before it was cool to be uncool. By day Barajas works as a news assistant in the newsroom of the Arizona Daily Star. By night, he does standup comedy, blogs about his hobbies, saves his dough for trips to comic conventions and writes the Captain Unikorn and El Loco comic books.

Here you'll find all sorts of information about "geek" culture, from the well-known to the obscure, with a particular focus on Tucson.

You can email Barajas at Find him on Facebook, Google+ or follow him on Twitter at @HenryBarajas
