Comic-con, Comic-con, San Diego Comic-Con tiiiiiime!
How excited we are for the Deadpool trailer
Greetings adventurers, it’s an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! Join us as we wade through the plethora of news coming out of San Diego Comic-con. So much happened in the last week in the world of nerdy news but does ANY of it have to do with comic books? We kick our show off with that thought as we go into the winners of the Eisner Awards and from there move into what’s new for Superman in his comics as well as Marvels plans for their newest acquisition – Angela.
We slide from those comic topics over to the world of video games. John Romero tells us what he thinks about the PC vs Console war, we get deep into what makes HALO a true franchise and we bitch more and more about Ubisofts sexism. We try to talk about happier things in Entertainment News with Evil Dead television series but just end up angrier from where we started. Avengers theories, Batman V Superman rants and a discussion about the Deadpool “leaked” trailer close out our show. Get comfy with us as we get into super geeky comic discussions on episode 101 of The Surly Nerd.
