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

It's comics time! We are in for a treat this week, with a bevy of Secret Wars tie ins as well as a ton of great Image books! Add to that the fact that Chris is apparently a lover of a certain World War 2 despot, and this has the makings of a classic NOLAnerd episode. So join NOLAnerds Matt "VR Torture" Finneman and Chris "Despot Lover" Robinson as they chat it up!

We also discuss the pros and cons of the preorder culture that permeates the industry. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Indie Gamer" Finneman and Chris "Mobile Initiate" Robinson as they talk to you about stuffs!

This was an oddly nostalgic week of comics for the NOLAnerds. It felt like it did back when we first began. A pull list chock full of DC comics with a handful of Marvel offerings. Not a single Image book or indie book in sight. It was a bit odd to tell the truth. But what a quality week it was! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Hank Johnson" Finneman and Chris "President Smiley" Robinson as they break it all down for you.

E3 has come and gone. Gamescom is weeks away. We are knee deep in the gaming drought of summer 2015. The only major release of note this summer has been Batman: Arkham Knight, but the majority of quality games this summer have arrived on the digital front. Games like Vanishing of Ethan Carter, King's Quest, Tembo the Badass Elephant, the Fall, and many more. We also got inundated with Dragon Quest news, sad farewell to an industry legend, and recoiled in horror at the evil empire named Konami. So join NOLAnerdcast members Matt "Dragon Quest OG" Finneman and Chris "King Graham" Robinson as they chat it up!

It is a rare 5th week this time around on the NOLAnerdcast, but it certainly doesn't feel that way!

So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ikari" Finneman and Chris "Sunkern" Robinson as they chit chat about comic book soup for the alcoholic soul!

Matt's on vacation again so once again Chris is here doing the show all by his lonesome. Thankfully, there are some good books to ease his pain. This week Gail Simone hits her stride with Secret Six, Battleworld: Siege redeems the name, and Trees continues to baffle.
