Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we kick things off in comics where JOHN WICK is getting his own comic series – but are we excited about it? We also get down on some news about a new ROBOTECH series being helmed by DMZ creator BRIAN WOOD. Level one winds down with an update on DC’s REBIRTH and how DC seems to be doing everything right when it comes to comic books.
Heading into level two, GUILLERMO DEL TORO gives us a special holiday treat and we get into news about a new DOUBLE DRAGON game. POLAND proves how awesome they are by donating to CD PROJEKT RED for video game research and development and STAR CITIZEN becomes a central topic of discussion as they decide after 4 years to switch game engines.
Over in the world of entertainment, the force has taken another great from us – Carrie Fisher. There’s also talks about a GEORGE LUCAS-centric episode of LEGENDS of TOMORROW that has us super-excited. There’s an update on the M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN’S TALES FROM THE CRYPT series and another insightful debate over what’s currently going on in the DCEU.
Our epilogue this week is about the future of television and how more upcoming series are cutting the cord and moving to streaming.
