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

It's a fifth week of comics folks and we all know what that means! Annuals! And less books than usual. Which suits us and our wallets just fine here at NOLAnerd HQ considering how much I spent at San Diego last week... ouch. This week we tackle some DC annuals and weeklies, say hello to a couple series we haven't seen in a few months, talk about Chris' love for the Doom Patrol, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Wonder Woman Team Up" Finneman and Chris "Nail Biter" Robinson as they chat with the interwebs about comics!

This episode is brought to you 7 days late because Matt was in San Diego for Comic Con International like a true comics nerd. Sadly that meant he didn't get to read this weeks' comics until now. But the week had SO MANY great books that a show had to be done to give them the justice they deserve. This week the NOLAnerds discuss several great Batman books, the best issue of Unwritten: Apocalypse to date, read a few Original Sin tie ins, gush over Image comics, and essentially have the most high rated books (4.0s) in one single episode ever. So join NOLAnerds Matt "San Diego Bound" Finneman and Chris "Lame Ass Who Didn't Go to San Diego" Robinson as they play catch up on the weeks' quality.

Comics! Man, do you know how hard it is to constantly think of something to put here? I mean, this is comics episode 137. That's like 130 more than I could reasonably do in a witty manner. So hey, let's just talk facts. Comics came out this week. Stuff like Lazarus. And more DC weeklies. Rocket Raccoon debuted. Other stuff happened! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "JokerXSuperman" Robinson as they talk about stuff. And junk.
