The Week in Geek: February 10 - February 16

Check out the latest in comics, books, and tv for the week, as well as upcoming conventions. Between Valentine's Day on Friday (and discount candy day on Saturday), and the thousands of hours of Olympic coverage to watch it will be a bit challenging to find time for much else, but we might be squeeze in a bit of reading during the commercials.  Have a geeky week!
