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

Matt's gone again and a major holiday is about to hit the US so I guess I'll stay and record the show about the million or so books that came out this week. No it's fine. I'm not complaining, I mean I didn't want to play Fallout 4 tonight anyway. So anyway here is the show. I'm not giving times because I'm busy doing important stuff and the show is only a half hour long so you can deal with not having the times.

Well here we are folks. No new milestone to speak of today. No 200th episode. No 50th episode. Just an episode commemorating freaking Wobbuffet and some killer comics. This week we continue the weird amalgamation of Secret Wars tie ins alongside post Secret Wars relaunches. We enjoy some new Image debuts. We welcome a whole buncha Batman into our lives. And we continue our love affair with Starfire. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sex Crimz" Finneman and Chris "Bloodstone" Robinson as they talk it up for you.
