Episode 020 :: Cosmic Things

Posted by Cap on June 10, 2010

Cosmic ThingsCome with us, dear listeners – BEYOND! Into the ballroom of the skies, where the infinite COSMOS are rife with unfathomable mysteries! Where space men and women wear sexy outfits and shoot BEAMS! Pew-pew-pew! Whoosh!

Nerdy Show adventures into the realms of our favorite cosmic comic books and some cosmic other stuff too! Captaining our journey to the stars and beyond are a few experts of the realm: Tony Bedard (Green Lantern Corps, R.E.B.L.E.S.), the Marvel cosmic writing duo Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thanos Imperative), and our own junior cosmic cadet, Brian, whose re-telling of the Infinity Gauntlet is on the way. Each of them bequeath unto us their knowledge of the unknown and cosmic comic secrets of the past and future. It’s good stuff!

We’ve also chat with intergalactic rock stars, Kirby Krackle. The ONLY comic book rock band. You’ve no doubt had your mind blown by their music on our show in the past, now savor their sultry voices, heed their mighty words, and be prepared for them to unleash an Annihilation Wave of awesome on Nerdapalooza.

We also delve into the video game side of the cosmic sphere with a look at the recently released EVE Online expansion, Tyrannis and their currently running Alliance Tournament VIII – accompanied by spaced-out space mining stories from Nerdy Show correspondent, Kristin Frenzel. Also Cap’s verdict on Mario Galaxy 2. Ka-kow!

PLUS- There’s a big Dungeons and Doritos Announcement as the series makes its triumphant return. Brace yourself for all new madness, mayhem, and adventure!

Don’t forget to VOTE for us in the Best of Orlando competition and be sure to embiggen this week’s cover art drawn by Nerdy Strip artist, Tony Baldini, featuring a some of your favorite cosmic characters and the Master of the Cosmos himself, Carl Sagan.

    patience must be a virtue

  • Cap

    Sorry about that dude, there was some last minute corrections that needed to be made. I thought I’d pulled the episode when I was doing that, but I guess the internet thought otherwise.

  • Hey guys. To answer your question, has no songs about Marvel Cosmic heroes on it, because Adam Warrock aka Eugene Ahn is working on a concept album about Marvel Cosmic heroes.

    The site is to give Euge’s fans and friends a taste of his style while he works on the album (and give Euge an outlet for non-album musical ideas.)

    In fact. he just released the first single from the album “Struggling Artist” (Also not about Marvel Cosmic Heroes that is coming later this Summer) You can download the single here and pay what you want from it from zip to ONE MILLION DOLLARS! (well, in theory at least.)

  • Tolan

    Huh. I think this is the first time you guys didn’t start with the latest sos.

  • Cap

    @Michael Llakor Ryan

    Oh! Solid intel, dude – thanks a bunch! That album sounds like it’s gonna be awesome. Wish I’d known all that for the show- derp!

    I believe Tolan is referring to Symphony of Science.

    Great episode Nerdy Crew, can’t wait for DnD to return, and will be tuning in for your E3 coverage.

  • Cap


    Oh! Nice, I was totally lost there and @Tolan I believe you’re right about that.

    Thanks for the love Jake. Shit’s gonna get nuts at E3, I want to blab about it but I want to save all that for later. Rockband 3 is just one of many amazing appointments that we’ve got lined up.

    To Hex:

    An idea for your ‘super hero name’ if you haven’t figured it out yet:
    Sonic Boom

    Sound-related and it just sounds like a big name, and it seemed to fit when I was looking at the drawing of the characters

    (We’re onto you, Hex)

  • Cap


    Giiiiirl what you talkin’ ’bout?

  • Taylor


    I cannot be the only one to have noticed the reversed recording at the end of the episode. Yet even though I know it, I am strangely compelled to obey…

    Can’t wait for the next DnD episode- Heil Wolfbear.
