Between the latest issue of Secret Wars and the newest wave of Convergence, both of the Big 2 are knee deep into their summer events! Alongside those we also have major reveals like who is Femme Thor, is Howard the Duck still good, and how awesome is Saga still? All this and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Blah" Finneman and Chris "Insert Witty Name" Robinson as they chit chat!

Do androids dream of electric sheep? Was that a set up only to make a Mareep joke since we seem incapable of dropping our dumb Pokemon naming scheme? Yes. Yes it was, and yes we are.

For our 4th consecutive year, the NolaNerds made their prescence known at BSI Comcss during the annual free Comic Book Day event. We sat around and chatted with local artists and writers, looked at the most recent offerings from the Big 2 and other companies and Chris interviewed a "new Matt" to replace the old one. We also talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron so spoilers I guess? Judging from the box office you've already seen it so it just doesn't even matter. Listen and enjoy!

So NolaNerdCast HQ is kind of a revolving door sometimes. Normally this is not a problem but this week someone started a conversation as soon as they walked in the door. As a result, I had to be up extra early so I could edit it out to provide a seamless audio version for our listeners. There's no real point to this, I just wanted to tell someone and I can tell that you are a good listener. The show itself? I mean we talk about Olicity (Several times), Law and Order: Marvel Style, and the wardrobe upgrade that joining the League of Assassins brings.

Revel in nostalgia as we discuss everything from Justice League Detroit, headband Supergirl, the Legion, atomic knights riding atop giant Dalmatians, and, according to Chris, the only good time period for Hawkman ever. Beyond that the NOLAnerds also discuss the new staus quo for Ice Man, tackle another Image debut, revel in the return of Velvet and Lazarus, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ice Man Cometh Out" Finneman, Chris "Loves Cyborg's Hot Pants" Robinson, and guest star Andy "Pandering" Nemo as they talk shop!

Today is a momentous occasion for our little TV show podcast. For the first time, every single show we cover had a new episode that aired last week. An exciting and exhausting prospect to be sure. This week we talk the neutering of the "Calvary", that corridor fight from Daredevil, and the two part Atom crossover.
