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

It's that time of year fans! No, not Halloween. Fifth week comics! That magical time of month when the selection drops to a few books and our bank accounts don't hate us for a Wednesday. This week we tackle the latest round of DC annuals, say goodbye to the X-Men Battle of the Atom crossover, and welcome to glorious return of Neil Gaiman's Sandman to comics. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "It's on the Left" Finneman and Chris "Has no Idea What Left Means" Robinson as the welcome Halloween week in comics in style! Well, maybe not style. Or class. Or grace. Shut up guys.

Welcome to a book heavy week here at the NOLAnerdcast home! This week the NOLAnerds bring you the latest in Arrow and Agents of SHIELD as well as tackle the big question - what Pokemon would superheroes use? The NOLAnerds also break down a ton of quality books from Marvel and DC, as well as enjoy the debut issue of Brubaker's Velvet and the next installment of Sex Criminals. Between all of that, a hate filled review of Larfleeze, the latest in X-Men Battle of the Atom, and the pure joy of Mega Man, this episode has something for everyone! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Larfleeze Lover" Finneman and Chris "Grass is Always Green Team-er" Robinson, as they talk about nothing and everything.

Well, our 100th episode is now in the rearview mirror, and the NOLAnerds find themselves striving to make the next 100 episodes even better. And they begin that vow with this, episode 101. We are cutting the fat from our shows, trying to bring them down to more acceptable times, as well as periodically add more features to see what sticks. But this week we find ourselves without a Shield Watch or Arrow Watch, but we make it up with a series of quality DC books and some excellent Marvel ones as well. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Tie Fighter" Finneman, and Chris "Hat Car" Robinson as they discuss, talk about, and ridicule the books of the week.

Good news bad news here folks. Good news first. WE HIT EPISODE 100! That's legit crazy pants. A huge milestone! One which should be celebrated in a spectacular fashion! But alas, that is the bad news. Do to an abrupt and surprising death in the family of one of the NOLAnerds, there was no time to make those lofty plans come to fruition. They still will, just not for this show sadly. But moving on! This week the NOLAnerds tackle the return of proper DC books, welcome the return of Arrow, check out the premiere of Coffin Hill and Superman/Wonder Woman, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "The Hood" Finneman and Chris "One Horn Beast" Robinson as they talk and bullshit each other for an hour.

One more folks. ONE MORE EPISODE. What are we going to do to celebrate episode 100? I have no clue. Like, at all. But hey, that's a problem for future NOLAnerdcast. This week we celebrate the glorious return of normal comic books at DC, as the gimmick Villain's Month is finally over. We also enjoy a trio of solid Vertigo titles as well as several enjoyable Marvel titles as per the norm. So join this week's NOLAnerds, Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "Matrix of Leadership" Robinson as they discuss the week that was.
