Taking advantage of free time for the family is sometimes just a matter of choosing from all of the many different options. Part one of the Geeky Parent Guide's Summer Series highlighted some TV and movies binge-worthy enough for a variety of different ages.

Twenty-five years ago, Image Comics vaulted into the comic book world with titles such as WildC.A.T.S. and Spawn, and now, one of its debut series has come back. Youngblood, originally created by Rob Liefeld, is now reintroduced into the modern world, including all of its technological novelties. Writer Chad Bowers directs Youngblood #1 and all of its characters with as much ease as downloading a phone app or sending a text message.

Despair and the ever-lingering desire of hope surround Eternal Empire #1 from Image Comics. The creative team of Alex + Ada returns again with a new series, generating a sense of pain felt by the characters as they deal with war, famine, and the lack of control one finds when they aren’t serving “their” Empress freely.

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is the event to strengthen your interest in the amazing world of comic books, trade paperbacks, graphic novels, trading cards, superhero figurines, and posters of your favorite characters. FCBD also serves as the perfect opportunity for those curious about comic books to stop by their local store, pick up some free comics, and see the wonderful artwork and entertaining storytelling showcased within. As perfectly described on freecomicbookday.com (as part of the Diamond Pop-Culture Network) as to what the event is, “Free Comic Book Day is an annual event founded on the belief that for every person out there, there’s a comic book that they’ll love.”

Predators: the greatest hunters this world has ever seen. They travel through space, and every now and again, they land on Earth to satisfy their primal urges. A Predator will find a location, begin to track its prey, and even set traps that sometimes leave nothing behind of its victims, other than devastating blood spatter and your imagination to wonder what happened to the poor soul who went flying upside down toward the forest canopy. Trophies are kept and a morbidly terrifying shrine is constructed with the remains of those slain by the hands of this deadly sport fighter.

Titan Comics has teamed up with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment to treat TEKKEN fans to an exciting take on the longtime video game series. As TEKKEN 7 is scheduled to be released at the beginning of June, the comic book, TEKKEN #1, will provide a bridge to those who can’t wait for their next fight scene to take place.

Summer is coming, and as a parent, it’s not always easy to know what fun activities are available for your kids, regardless of their age. Hopefully, I can help you along your path to finding ways that you and your kids can enjoy some fun in or out of the sun this summer.
