What are you geeking out on right now?

Currently I'm in the process of catching up on:

Batgirl New 52
Batman New 52
The Walking Dead

and trying to will myself to read the Song of Fire and Ice series before starting to broaden my horizons and become more of a Marvel guy too.

And of course watching my MLB Best 13-2 Braves kick some ass.

What are you geeking out on?
