What is going on at DC Comics?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head right into the weekly raid (our news roundup).
Kicking things off this week, we have Locke & Key teaming up Sandman and we couldn’t be happier. Also in the world of comics, Hearts of Darkness is coming back in a huge way and Borderlands is going to be coming to the big screen.
Also this week, Train to Busan is getting another entry in its universe. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark has a new tribute book and the graphic novel The Auteur is coming to television. We close out the news this week with Kickstarter becoming the first tech company to unionize.
Our Boss Room this week is about all the changes going on at DC Comics and what it could mean for the future of the brand.

Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After a lazy prelude, we head into comics where we talk even MORE about Marvel’s Secret Wars. We also go into the newest MOCKINGBIRD news, get mystic with Scarlet Witch, regress to being kids with Long Beach Comic Con and top it all off with a big ‘ol talk about comics continuity thanks to DC Comics.
In game industry news, Deadpool sends the press an announcement, we break down what is going down with Sony at the Tokyo Games Show and we argue the pros and cons of the new Xbox One. Microsoft keeps our games section alive by starting a fight over Youtube content and makes us talk about the best years in gaming ever. Thanks Microsoft.
Over in the world of entertainment, Borderlands is revving up for a Lionsgate film release, Mad Max gets ALL the love from the critics, Slash takes over The Hell Within and Stan Lee calls out the new Fantastic Four movie. We wrap up entertainment with Universal wanting to re-launch some of Tony’s favorite movies and he’s none too happy about it and Steven Spielberg telling us how superhero movies will go the way of the western.
Our epilogue this week is dedicated to a man both Tony and James loved ever since they were young…Wes Craven. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
