As the weather gets warmer, all the cool Geeky stuff comes out of hibernation. We’ve got a new Star Wars show, a new season of Doctor Who, the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, and even a new Veronica Roth novel. And that’s not even close to all that May has in store.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?
