The Week in Geek: March 31 - April 6

Check out the latest in comics, books, movies, and tv for the week, as well as upcoming conventions.  One of this week's highlights is the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  We are so excited we might have to grab a stack of comics and camp out in front of the theater.  Luckily, we'll have a few days to recover before the start of the fourth season of Game of Thrones.  Valar morghulis!  Have a geeky week!
