When Geek is Prime Time, What’s Next?

Geek culture is the #1 North American pop culture trend, but when geek is prime time, what’s next?

This fall, three primetime live action series based on comics will be on television (The Walking Dead, Arrow, and Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is getting a high-profile premiere on a major broadcast network tonight), with plenty of other genre shows on broadcast and cable networks. Shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones are setting records for their networks and setting new, higher bars for cable viewership.

In films, a total of 12 comic-based features have gone or will go into wide release in North America this year, a record.  Several of those are among the highest-grossing films of the year.  And that doesn’t count the other geek properties like Star Trek, Pacific Rim, or World War Z that are also filling theaters.
