The prodigal son returns as NOLAnerd Scott graces the show with both his presence and his dulcet tones in the latest episode of our comics show!

This week the NOLAnerds discover the latest Brubaker/Phillips masterpiece, they try and wrap their heads around the Grant Morrison Multiversity, wonder how THREE different books broke the 4th wall this week and spoke directly to us, enjoy the return of Gail Simone on Wonder Woman, lament the continuing impending doom of Fables, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "High Concept" Finneman, Chris "Born in the 40s" Robinson, and Scott "Has a Baby" Brehm as they banter like only nerds can.

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.

So join NOLAnerds Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "JokerXSuperman" Robinson as they talk about stuff. And junk.
