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

We are so damn close to episode 100 now... maybe we could celebrate being so close to this giant milestone with a surprise guest star? Maybe an old NOLAnerd who moved away? Maybe that guys name could be Andy? Hmm. That seems like it could work! This week we bid farewell to DC's Villains Month, enjoy another installment of Battle of the Atom, and gush all over Matt Fraction's newest creator owned comic. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Poking the Bear" Finneman, Chris "Write and the Arting" Robinson, and guest starring Andy "I'm Here" Niemann as they break it all down.

We are so precariously close to episode 100 it is starting to border on the absurd. We have no idea how to even honor such an occassion...but we still have three weeks left to worry, so that is a problem for Future Matt and Future Chris. This week brings us to the penultimate week of DCs villains month, as well as showing us several high quality Marvel books and a great issue of Fables. We talk Dickwolves. We talk Black Dynamite. And we talk comics. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rogue Lover" Finneman and Chris "McCoy Hater" Robinson as they talk about stuff and junk.

This week continues both the slog through the DC Villain's Month and the slog towards our 100th episode! We discuss several Villains Month books that we'd rather not have, but also revel in the joy of finding a few diamonds in the rough. How did we respond to the newest crisis from DC editorial? The NOLAnerds also discuss a few Marvel books, but for the most part this was a fairly light week. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Crime Syndicate" Finneman and Chris "Mongul Quality" Robinson as they tackle the week that was.

Another week chock full of releases, another week of two nerds breaking it all down. This week marks the start of our countdown to EPISODE 100 (Say WHAAAA) as well as the start of Villain's Month, another in a trend of DC gimmick month. So what do the NOLAnerds have to say about the 3D covers? About the Forever Evil kick off issue? About the choice of villains? What about over at Marvel land where the X-Men have begun their first Marvel NOW crossover? All of these questions and more will be answered by the least professional podcasters around. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Villain Lover" Finneman and Chris "Futurama Hater" Robinson as they talk shop with you.

THE DROUGHT IS OVER MOFOS! This month was a welcome shock to the system, as evidenced by the unusually long episode today. I mean, we got a little bit of everything this month. We had gaming news in spades courtesy of several Nintendo Directs and the gigantic news filled Gamescom. We had game releases that kept us playing all month, everything from the eagerly anticipated Saints Row 4 Prez Game of the Year, to the Wii U's first salvo of holiday goodness, to a handful of high quality Japanese games for the PS3, and much more. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Xilliphiliac" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5eva" Robinson, Scott "Holy Shit He's Back" Brehm, Ronald "3DS Bound" Bienemy, and Zack "Question Man" St. Onge as they tackle the games and news of August 2013!
