The Surly Nerd are laid up sickly this week on…oh you know the drill
It’s time to revisit Frank Miller’s Dark Knight
Greetings adventurers, it’s time for an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! This week everything is a mess as your favorite hosts are laid up sick. Unlike most weeks, we have thrown the rules out the window and just talk about a handful of fun topics before dragging our sick butts back into bed.
We open with The Dark Knight comic getting a new sequel focused on Carrie Kelley in her later years and discuss if this is just cashing in on the Frank Miller series or not. From there we move on to the death of Ralph Baer, dive into the Playstation Experience and talk about the new Krypton series on SyFy. We wrap up the show this week on the topic of comic book endings and if every comic book should have one.
So grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
The legend, Ralph Baer
