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

Welcome to another installment in what we like to call, the NOLAnerd OG Saga! That is where we cut out the riff raff and only shower you with the dulcet tones of the original co-creators of the NOLAnerdcast! Prepare to be amazed! Or at least, relieved. Because with only two of us the show really kind of moves along at a brisk pace. It's almost refreshing. This week we bid farewell to the Before Watchmen saga, lament the lack of a lot of competition in 4th week books, discuss the simply horrendous new animated Iron Man movie: Rise of the Technovore, and more! So join the OG NOLAnerds, Matt "Loki-isms" Finneman, and Chris "Die Hard Flash" Robinson and take this journey with us!

It's always a bit sad the week after a big milestone episode. 76 doesn't have nearly the same charm to it as 75 does. But this week is almost even MORE special! It's one of our biggest weeks yet! A huge slew of quality books including Saga, more Age of Ultron, another round of Batman books introducing new villains and new characters, and part one of the epic Mega Man and Sonic crossover! We also have a special treat, our first call in to the show! Mega fan Paxson calls in to discuss with us why he isn't particularly keen on Saga - see how we agree and disagree in a special segment! So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Sonic Man" Finneman, Chris "Food Poisoned" Robinson, Scott "Goldballs" Brehm, and Andy "Saga Defender" Niemann as they break it all down for you, issue by issue!

Episode Seventy Five people! EPISODE 75! That is one milestone greater than 50, which is apparently a point of contention and we actually discuss that for some reason during the show. But I digress. Matt here, back in charge of our super witty and cool episode breakdowns. I'm not even sure people read these. Do they? Does it matter? Let's just talk comics people! This week we have several email questions to tackle, a ton of juicy industry news, and quite a few brand new creative teams tackling some DC books. All of that plus a new Marvel NOW launch, the penultimate Green Lantern issue, and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Age of Ultra Boring" Finneman, Chris "75 is the New 50" Robinson, and Andy "Worse Pick Than Shots Shots Shots" Niemann on this, our 75th episode!
