We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics, video games, anime and movies!

O SNAP! Nola Nerds are back at it again! You know, since last week. Since we do this every week. Like clockwork. Well, really laggy inconsistent clockwork. The kind of clock you'd get from a flea market or something. Moving on! Join the Nola Nerds as they break down the week in books and talk about the industry at large. The Nerds this week are Matt "Rape Snakes" Finneman, Chris "Finally Knows the Difference Between Warcraft and Warhammer" Robinson, and Scott "I Hate Bunker" Brehm.
