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

Holy Tons of Comic Books Batman! This is hands down the most filled week of comics we have ever seen. Seriously. Our wallets hurt afterwards. Our minds were drained from reading them for hours on end. It was epic my friends. Epic. This week saw everything from a major DC launch title, to practically every Marvel book we actually read, to one of the greatest crossovers ever, all the way to a brand new comic straight from the Greg Rucka House of Amazing. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Pizza Dog" Finneman, Chris "No Feels" Robinson, and Ashley "Booty Call" Butler as they break down a truly exhaustive week in comics.

This episode is brought to you by Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, because it is super awesome and I kept playing it during the podcast, much to my cohost's chagrin. But that is neither here nor there. This is all about comics! This week we delve into the finale of Age of Ultron, discuss the ramifications for Marvel as a whole due to it, see what Green Lantern New Guardians is like post finale, love the hell out of Wonder Woman, and debut our new scoring system! That's right. We are now working on a 5 Star system to better show our love for books. So without further ado, join NOLAnerds Matt "Loves The Last of Us" Finneman and Chris "Hates Good Things and Ruins Matt's Fun" Robinson as they talk comics.

Now, I know what you are thinking. NOLAnerds, why is there a missing week in your podcast? Why that is a wonderful question. While we pride ourselves in doing this every week since we started, one of us was in Canada Land last week, and thus we could not do the show =/ Its ok though! This week we talk a bit about last week anyway. One big ol happy comic book family. This week we talk about the two big guns of DC, Superman Unchained and the start of Scott Snyder's Batman: Year Zero arc. We also discuss the X-Men Hellfire Academy saga and many other things, such as the always wonderful Mega Man/Sonic crossover. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Refuses to Keep His Pants On" Finneman, Chris "Continuously Thrown Under the Bus" Robinson, and Ashley "Throws Chris Under the Bus" Butler as they talk one good week in comics.

This was an odd week. It was a notorious fifth week, which meant vastly fewer books to read than usual, as well as another round of annuals. But this also marked the very first NOLAnerdcas where Chris was absent! I would have cried myself to sleep had it not been for the always wonderful Ashley stepping in to save the day! So jump right on in to one of the quickest shows we've done - minus all of the random tangents we go off into. Join NOLAnerds Matt "MEGA MAN SONIC CROSSOVER" Finneman and Ashley "Could Not Care Less About Your Dumb Crossover" Butler and listen to them chat about comics and junk!

Sometimes you get a month that has few notable releases, but a ton of information. That, was this month. The bulk of what we learned about the industry this month was contained in the Microsoft reveal of the XBox 1, and we have an entire show dedicated to just that (Ep18) But there was a lot more to get excited about this month! Star Wars got a new master. DC met Scribblenauts. Nintendo scored a Sonic coup. Tim Schafer wowed us with his newest Kickstarter pitch. Far Cry entertained us with Blood Dragon. The iPad became the newest home to Star Wars: KOTOR. All of this and more gets discussed on this, our May video game podcast!
