Geektastic is full of funny stories about what it is like to be a geek. At times, I would have to stop reading, in order to get a break from laughing. My favorite story was One of Us by Tracey Lynn. It is about a cheerleader that decides to learn about a few geeky things for her boyfriend. I also loved the comics. The Doctor Who Refrences were awesome. Overall, Geektastic is just amazing.
