The end draws nigh. After a decade of action packed adventure, the Infinity Saga is coming to its conclusion this month with the release of Avengers: Endgame. It has been a long and winding road to the final battle between the original six Avengers and Thanos, the being who has been pulling the strings on the world’s greatest heroes, but after 22 movies, the time has finally come to bring a close to things. As the original Avengers prepare to pass the torch of Earth’s defenders, they are going to need an exit plan for what to do in their golden years. With that in mind, we at Quirk are offering up some post superhero life plans.

Here at Quirk, we love science fiction. There is nothing as entertaining as a good piece of speculative fiction with great story lines and characters. While there are some writers who are well established science fiction masters like Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick and Octavia Butler, there are also some creators who have the skills to make some of the best science fiction to ever hit the shelves but simply haven’t gone down that path yet. With that in mind, it seemed appropriate to speculate on what the future of science fiction writing may look like.

There are some great spies out there the world of pop culture. It is impossible to deny the fantastic skills of characters like Napoleon Solo, Jason Bourne, James Bond, George Smiley and Natasha Romanov, but what about characters who may not already be spies, yet would slip right into the game without a hitch? There are tons of characters in lit and pop-culture who would make amazing spies with just a slightly different application of their skills. With that in mind, we at Quirk wanted to take a look at some characters who could put famous spies to shame.
Some personalities are bigger than life. In the case of media, there are actors like Sir. Ian McKellen, writers like Herman Melville and artists like Jack “King” Kirby. While these people are all bigger than big, they also have one thing in common: bigger than life monsters. Whether they fought them in films, wrote about them in novels or drew them in comics, each one of these men knows what it is like to be tied inextricably to an enormous beast. With Pacific Rim: Uprising just around the corner, we wanted to take a look at some of the biggest baddest monsters to ever grace pop culture.
It's December again, which means of all things going on, the most important is a new Star Wars movie. There's also some holiday which is rumored to be right around the corner, but that takes a close second to the continued stories of the Skywalker family. We wanted to take a look at some other pop culture characters who are the last of their kind.

We at Quirk have decided to give eight geeky gifts for eight crazy nights.
