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

Welcome one, welcome all to another exciting - nay, super exciting! - installment of the Nola Nerd Podcast! The comics portion of our little nerdy endeavor has hit the ripe ol' age of 30, which used to be a problem, but since 30 is apparently the new 20 nowadays, we still have plenty of time to achieve our dreams. Right? Right. This week the nerds discuss the explosion of gay debate going on in DC and Marvel as well as delve into this weeks books! Join Matt "It is totally Vibe" Finneman, Chris "Jeff Lemire Is My Hero" Robinson, Scott "New Andy" Brehm, Andy "Damnit, Another Star Wars Book" Niemann, and guest listening Chelsea "I Can't Believe They Are Cancelling Avengers: EMH" St. Juniors.

Did you know they released a second Digimon Movie? We sure as hell didn't! So imagine our surprise when one started playing after the second season of the show ended on our awesome DVDs. Now imagine our disappointment when we realized it wasn't even a full length movie, but merely an extended episode. Now, imagine your disappointment and apathy when you listen along with us as we discuss and berate the movie for even existing.

Welcome to the April 2012 Video Game Podcast by the Nola Nerds! TAKE TWO! Because Chris is a big ol' jerk face who deleted our first one back when, you know, it was actually the end of April and not smack dab in the middle of May. But here we are! Back! And neither better nor worse than before. This month we talk about the big games (of which there were few) and the big news (of which there were a good amount) in the video game world for the month of April. We also discuss and break down the shockingly fun yet rip-offy sounding Playstation Smash, I mean, All Stars Battle Royale. Who do we want to see appear? Who is in our dream roster? Check it out and find out!

Items of note discussed within: Witcher 2, Walking Dead Ep 1, Fez, Tales of Graces, Microsoft's $99 Xbox 360, Call of Duty Black Ops II vs. Halo 4 (The November FPS THROW DOWN!), Prototype 2, Kinect Star Wars, and Playstation All Stars Battle Royale.

The Nerds on deck this go round? Matt "I Love Sony Smash Bros" Finneman, Chris "I Want Resistance McResistancy in the Game" Robinson, Garrett "All I Play is Disgaea" Platner, Ronald "Still the Angry Black Gamer, But Now a Hardcore Tales Player" Bienemy, and Mason "I Love Sora and Leon Kennedy" Maldonado.

This week, the Nerds include Matt "Nothing Notable This Week" Finneman, Chris "Still Is the Bully Who Deletes Podcasts" Robinson, Scott "Second Mason" Brehm, Barbie "Brought a Friend" Cure, and Andy "New Scott" Niemann. We talk shop, talk comics, and talk about the most random shit we can think of. Join us!

Comments[0] know how we are lile, totally professional and stuff? Not this time! Well I mean, we weren't any more or less professional while we recorded the new episode. I meant more as I type up this description. I've been drinking. I know, I know. We will all find the strength to carry on. MOVING ON! We have some great emails this week and the Nola Nerds really go in depth for them. We also talk about the next wave of crossover books - both for DC's Night of the Owls and Marvel's Avengers vs. X-Men. All of this and more with a healthy dose of snark and irreverance. Join Matt "My Favorite Doctor is Doctor Light" Finneman, Chris "Deleted our Last Podcast Cause He is a Big Ol Bully" Robinson, Barbie "Fastest Comic Review Record Holder" Cure, and Andy "New Scott" Niemann as they break down this new week in comics!

Using our entirely imagined celebrity status, the Nola Nerds found themselves in a position of power at the Free Comic Book Day festivities at their local comic shop, BSI Comics in Metairie, Louisiana. And by position of power, I of course mean the least professional podcast recording live on the floor as a sea of humanity swept in to snag awesome free books. Join Matt and Chris as they discuss some books given out that day, interview local artists and writers, and snag some face time with several surprise guests! It was a day of fun, so we invite you to join in with us and experience the magic. The terribly edited magic.

Join Matt "Would Marry Iron Fist" Finneman, Chris "I Want to Bang 15 Year Old Hope" Robinson, Scott "Look Who Decided to Show Up" Brehm, Barbie "Ate ALL OF MY GODDAMN ICE CREAM" Cure, and Andy "Thank Goodness No Star Wars Books" Niemann.
