Greetings adventurers, it’s time for an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! This week we come at you with all the geeky news you need, while spinning off topic more than usual! After the prelude we jump into comic news where we tell you all about Marvel’s X-men ’92, Jack Kirby finally getting the recognition he so rightly deserves and close out Level 1 talking about the Death of Wolverine and why Wonder Woman is so important to comic history.
In Level 2, we go into the changes that Nintendo is trying to undergo to become relevant again as well as why Sony is having internal issues. We wrap up gaming news with the closure of Microsoft’s entertainment division and why that hurts their current console more than helps it. In Level 3 we chat about the new Agent Carter show and how she ties into the greater Marvel U, debate if a Hellraiser reboot is a good idea, go into Fox’s gritty Peter Pan series and close it all out with another Leatherface prequel. In the epilogue this week we get a little serious as we talk about video game movies in the context of modern comic book movies.
