The Week in Geek: April 7 - April 13

Check out the latest in comics, books, movies, and tv for the week, as well as upcoming conventions.  After all the craziness that went on in the geek world last week (Captain America!  Tabletop Day!  Game of Thrones Season 4!), it looks like this will be a good week to kick back, relax, and read some comics.  For the film fans, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is also coming out to DVD.  Have a geeky week!
