Thank you for checking out the Nerd Citadel!
“The pleasure of reading a story and wondering what will come next for the hero is a pleasure that has lasted for centuries and, I think, will always be with us.”

Thank you for checking out the Nerd Citadel! If this is your first time here, you may be asking yourself “What is the Nerd Citadel?” Well at the moment, it isn’t much; and that’s the beauty of it! Like the name suggests, think of the Nerd Citadel as a small city or fortress built on the solid foundation of SciFi, fantasy, and comic book content. This is a haven where we will be able to embrace our nerdiness. My dream for the Nerd Citadel is to grow a community of like-minded individuals who share a reverence for what has become known as nerd culture.
But what is nerd culture?
The way I see it, some people are satisfied with “reality”. They are content getting there entertainment from sports, the news, reality television, biopics, etc. They don’t dig too deeply and enjoy relatable, grounded content.
Then there is the rest of us….. We aren’t satisfied by the everyday and mundane. We want content with rich stories that challenge the ideas of what is normal; that make us consider situations and scenarios that some would consider unimaginable. We thrive on the fantastical! We love getting lost in these far away worlds and the art they inspire!
And that is really what this community is based around; art. Critiquing it and sharing it. Chris D., Nick and I get together every week to talk about the things we love and goof off for your entertainment. It may seem a rather passive activity for me to claim this as a community, but hey, we are just getting started and laying the foundation. We have plenty of ideas going forward that will hopefully excite and viewers entice our viewers to continue to grow the Citadel with us as we take on more new and exciting projects. Until then, please hop over to YouTube and check out our weekly videos. Stay nerdy!
