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 NOLAnerd episode 147, codenamed Kakarot. Why is it codenamed that? Well why was last issue codenamed Cthullu? Who knows! We work in mysterious ways. This week the NOLAnerds draft their dream teams of superheroes, tackle week 2 of the DC 5 Years Later initiative, randomly discuss Destiny, love the hell out of Image Comics' strong females, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Can't Keep His Hands to Himself" Finneman and Chris "Loves Star Wars Episode 2" Robinson as they chat the day away!

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!

It's a fifth week of comics folks and we all know what that means! Annuals! And less books than usual. Which suits us and our wallets just fine here at NOLAnerd HQ considering how much I spent at San Diego last week... ouch. This week we tackle some DC annuals and weeklies, say hello to a couple series we haven't seen in a few months, talk about Chris' love for the Doom Patrol, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Wonder Woman Team Up" Finneman and Chris "Nail Biter" Robinson as they chat with the interwebs about comics!

This episode is brought to you 7 days late because Matt was in San Diego for Comic Con International like a true comics nerd. Sadly that meant he didn't get to read this weeks' comics until now. But the week had SO MANY great books that a show had to be done to give them the justice they deserve. This week the NOLAnerds discuss several great Batman books, the best issue of Unwritten: Apocalypse to date, read a few Original Sin tie ins, gush over Image comics, and essentially have the most high rated books (4.0s) in one single episode ever. So join NOLAnerds Matt "San Diego Bound" Finneman and Chris "Lame Ass Who Didn't Go to San Diego" Robinson as they play catch up on the weeks' quality.
