The progressive Batgirl title is under fire this week
Greetings adventurers, it’s time for an all new episode of The Surly Nerd and what a news-filled week it has been! After the prelude we roll right into Comic Industry news and talk about the retirement of one of the industry greats Jack Davis. Also on the comics docket is the relaunch of the Archie brand and Marvel putting a pin in the Fantastic Four’s stories.
Over on the gaming side of things, we talk about the importance of DOOM and how it turned 21 this week as well as Microsoft’s plan to take over China and a look back at an MMO that we believed was destine for failure: Final Fantasy 14. SEGA kicks things off in entertainment news with our theories on what would make a great video game adaptation followed by Sony wanting to make a Men in Black crossover and we give you all the details about Simon Pegg’s new flick where he plays the Devil: The Gathering. We wrap up this week discussing the controversy around the latest issue of Batgirl that is not for the easily offended.
