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

Woo! The Nola Nerds are back on schedule! Suck it Hurricane Isaac and Entergy energy company! You can't keep a mediocre group of self entitled nerds down! This week marks the beginning of the DC "Zero Month" as well as seeing a few new series launch themselves to our delight. Just like we did back at the launch of the New 52, the Nola Nerds have committed to reading every single Issue Zero for your benefit. We suffer so you don't have to! We talk Marvel, Baz, the Rot, and the game changer curveball given to us in Fairest. Join the Nola Nerds Matt "Phantom Judas" Finneman, Chris "Bumper Carla" Robinson, Scott "Can't Remember His Own Comic" Brehm, with a brief appearance from Andy "Quips and Thwips" Niemann.

Another month, another random 5th week of comics, another bout of awesome annuals and whimsy-filled comic fun times! This episode is horrifically late unfortunately, due to the Nola Nerds' geographical location. Hurricane Isaac shut our power down for a good long time, as well as delaying the actual comics until the following week. So people of the future, enjoy this look back into your past, and our present! TIME TRAVEL! This week the Nola Nerds are Matt "Drunk Machete" Finneman, Chris "Threatened By a Damn Machete" Robinson, and Andy "Steve Celsius" Niemann. Time stamps and Books of the Weel below.
