Season 4 Episode 5 :: CrossRe-Gen
It’s time for a reboot! Welcome to a new Nerdy Show format! No new issue #1 for us guys, no, we’re gonna keep on truckin’. After trying several different styles of episodes since we started Season 4 we’ve finally settled on a winner: weekly episodes covering one or two essential topics. There’s more to it than that, and you can hear us ramble on about what’s in store in this episode. Put simply: you can look for a new Nerdy Show every Thursday and some weeks Monday as well. We’re back… in force!
This episode focuses on comics and is themed well with our in-house reformatting. We’re talking about CrossGen, a comic publisher with some remarkable titles and remarkable talent that went up in flame after a brief existence- now returning like a phoenix from the ashes. Yes, Marvel has resurrected the Sigilverse, including Ruse with its original author, Mark Waid! We discuss CrossGen and its catalog of way cool titles, as well as interview the notoriously outspoken Mr. Waid about the original CrossGen, the reboot, and his industry-challenging outlook on the digital frontier. We also discuss our recent weekend of mayhem at MegaCon, The Ninja Turtles’ return to comics, and how YOU can choose the topic of an upcoming Nerdy Show.
