More women in comics, the girl scouts go gaming and how fantastic can the Fantastic Four movie be?
Not Pictured: Female Thor
Greetings adventurers, it’s an all new episode of The Surly Nerd. We kick off the week with our prelude where we open with all the video games we have been playing and all the movies we have been watching that came out five years ago. We head into level one, comic industry news by talking about the changes in the Marvel U and DC U where women take center stage. Thor becomes female and Batgirl gets new writers and a new (read: practical) costume. It’s a fanboys (or fangirls!) dream!
From those diatribes we move directly into gaming news where the girl scouts open their doors to game development, Tekken decides to side with Unreal and Sony wants to get in Wii owners pants. We top the week off with more fantastic movie news, get down and dirty with what is new in the world of Halloween Horror Nights. It’s another fantastic week for nerdy news so get ready to strap yourself in for the week-in-review madness that is our show and don’t forget to send us your summer fun time pictures with your #nerdventure hashtag!

Catwoman, Disney and, Fucking Michael Bay
The new amazing look of Selina Kyle – Catwoman
It’s an all new episode of The Surly Nerd, ready to get all geeky up in your ear holes. We jump into this week with the prelude (as always). Inside the prelude we talk about what you missed at RTX and wonder why everyone has (finally) joined us on the hating Michael Bay bad-wagon. Witness Tony have a Michael Bay crisis of faith. Things get even crazier as we discuss the possibility of an African-American Captain America. Catwoman finally gets a good female writer taking control of her comics which makes us happy. We are finally happy seeing DC moving in the right direction for many of their non-movie projects! (Now if only Disney could make some intelligent decisions with their IPs)
Eventually our multitude of rants take us to the end where we spend a long time talking about the state of the movie industry any why butts are not firmly planted in theater seats. Is Michael Bay is the only thing driving people to the movies these days? Are we resigning ourselves to a million more shitty Transformer movies? All that, with Nintendo, Final Fantasy, Disney and MORE to come! Get ready to strap yourself in for the week-in-review madness that is our show and don’t forget to send us your summer fun time pictures with your #nerdventure hashtag!
