2017 is at an end. Come celebrate the year that broke our hearts with us!
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! This is a very special “one off” bonus episode, all about the big news and events that shaped pop-culture in 2017.
Join us for our last episode of the year as we rant about all the crap that happened to the things we love.
The Inhumans are competing against the X-men, but this time…ON TV!
When it comes to TV, who will win?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where NYCC is in FULL EFFECT and DC’s comes out swinging as they bring back both VERTIGO and their YOUNG ANIMAL lines. Also from NYCC, we have an awesome new graphic novel from Neil Gaiman and Joss Whedon is coming back to BUFFY, for an all new comic series!
Heading into level two, Phil Spencer tells us why he thinks backwards compatibility is important and we tell you if he’s right or not. Also in gaming this week, we have a big C64 (really?) announcement as well as a TOTALLY non-political news bit about how the crew behind WOLFENSTEIN wants to “Make America Nazi-free again”.
Over in the world of entertainment, we have a TON of CONSTANTINE annoucements from NYCC. We also have brand-new revelations about the SPAWN movie and we close out level 3 with a movie near and dear to our hearts: Behind The Mask.
Our epilogue is week is all about The Inhumans show vs The Gifted.
