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

onvergence has ended! Did the DC event manage to stick the landing? Is the new status quo worth the effort and wait? What about the final wave of tie ins? And what of the ever increasing amounts of Secret Wars tie ins? What about the TRUE best event this summer, Archie Comics' Mega Man x Sonic event, World's Unite? How did we enjoy the season 1 finale of The Flash? Find out with the NOLAnerds Matt "Curses" Finneman and Chris "Tea Drinker" Robinson alongside guest host Dayna "Made of Fail" Abel as they chit chat about all kinds of stuff!

For our 4th consecutive year, the NolaNerds made their prescence known at BSI Comcss during the annual free Comic Book Day event. We sat around and chatted with local artists and writers, looked at the most recent offerings from the Big 2 and other companies and Chris interviewed a "new Matt" to replace the old one. We also talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron so spoilers I guess? Judging from the box office you've already seen it so it just doesn't even matter. Listen and enjoy!
