We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics and other nerdy things. Come! Witness the spectacle!

Welcome to episode Bayleef! The middle evolution of the lamest Grass starter, and once again having nothing to do with comics! This week the NOLAnerds are here to talk about comics, discuss the debut of their new TV only show, enjoy a killer meme, talk weeklies, and much more. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sandman'd" Finneman and Chris "No Fun Allowed" Robinson along with special guests Andy "Stardust" Niemann and Scott "IM ALIVE" Brehm as they talk comics.

Welcome to Episode 152, aka Chikorita. That's right! We have officially entered the Gold and Silver age of our comics show. Here's hoping we will be around long enough to make a Ruby and Sapphire era! This week the NOLAnerds delve into a week that brings us another salvo of DC weeklies, a slew of quality Marvel books, and two absurd licensed titles that only Chris could love. So join NOLAnerds Matt "White Lantern" Finneman, Chris "Lamb of God" Robinson, and Andy "Sleepy Hollow" Niemann as they discuss the week for your pleasure!

With our 150th episode behind us, the NOLAnerds continue their never ending trudge towards the next great podcast milestone. And they do it in style this week, with several new debuts and crossovers and weeklies to discuss. We have also entered the full swing of TV season, with FOUR superhero shows to discuss. This week we hit up everything from new hipster Batgirl to the scary world of Scott Snyder's Wytches, to the classic Batman vs Justice League story, to a very magic and witch heavy week, to everything in between. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Justice Buster" Finneman and Chris "Cthullu's Bride" Robinson as they talk comics!

September is upon us! The summer drought has ended! Let the deluge of games BEGIN! This month brought us everything from the Tokyo Game Show to the release of the best selling new IP of all time, the highly anticipated Destiny and so much more! The NOLAnerds discuss the latest Naruto release, talk about the poor sales for great games on systems with small install bases, give their own opinions on the Destiny phenomenon, anticipate the new Shadows of Mordor game, and scratch their heads at the odd PS3 JRPG rush. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sunsinger" Finneman, Chris "Naruto Eye Roll" Robinson, Ronald "Xillia" Bienemy, Mason "Needs A Vita" Maldonado, Zack "Shadows of Mordor Believer" St. Onge, and Andy "Smash Bro" Niemann as they talk shop!

We code named this episode Durango. It has nothing to do with the XBox One. Or the car. Or anything else named Durango. Name just sounds fun. This was a special week. Chris actually had more books than Matt! That never happens. This week the NOLAnerds tackled more five years later DC books, ventured once more into Multiversity, got a double dose of X-Men, welcomed back Deadly Class, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Purple Reign" Finneman and Chris "Shuttered" Robinson as they talk comics.

Welcome to Episode 146, code named Cthullu. Why? Who even knows. Probably because 146 is a weird number for a title. But that has nothing to do with comics! This week the NOLAnerds dive head first into the opening week of DC's Future's End one shot initiative, where every issue is time skipped 5 years later and may or may not tie into the weekly ongoing, Future's End. We also are 'treated' to the finale of Original Sin, find out Prof X's actual original sin, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Penny-One" Finneman and Chris "Human Bed" Robinson as they tackle the week in comics!

Wow. WOW guys. This month right here. Between the crazy highs of Gamescom 2014 and the Playstation Tokyo Game Show pre-show to the insane lows of the gaming community completely mishandling at best and being virulent and awful at the worst in regards to Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, this has been one stacked month of gaming news. Gamer as a term became practically detrimental to our preferred hobby, Playstation knocked it out of the park at Gamescom, a handful of releases graced consoles as the world prepared itself for the onslaught of the holidays, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "That's So Fetch" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5ever" Robinson, Garrett "Sword Art Translation Error" Platner, Mason "Monokuma" Maldonado, and Zack "Tomb Raider Holiday" St. Onge as they try and tackle this massive news filled month in style!
