  3. Nerdy Show 228 :: Babies, Raccoons, and Fairyland with Skottie Young

    ep228Coming to you live from San Diego Comic Con it’s… not an episode about San Diego Comic Con – but it is about comics.

    While Nerdy Show hosts Cap and Jessica do recount some of their adventures during the biggest week in pop culture, the main event comes from last month’s iteration of the best convention exclusively for comic books: HeroesCon. Cap sat down with artist/writer Skottie Young – the brains behind the Lil’ Marvel Universe and all those totally adorable baby portraits of your favorite characters. But he ain’t all cutesy, Young also brings the pain in the Rocket Raccoon solo book and in the forthcoming I Hate Fairyland. Hear the strange tale of how he made a career of cutsifying characters, what’s to hate about Fairyland, how an artist makes a transition to writer, and even some tales of alternate reality Thundercats reboots that almost happened!

  5. Episode 227 :: The Great Doctor Who Debate

    ep227There’s no denying that Doctor Who has completely regenerated itself. What was once a quirky, low budget British sci-fi has become a big budget global phenomena. 50 years after its humble beginnings, the time traveling Doctor and his cadre of companions have captured the hearts of nerd and mainstream audiences alike. But it’s not all love for the gallant Gallifreyan; The Doctor’s got his share of detractors – some of them in Nerdy Show!

  8. VIDEO: Nerdy Show vs. DC TV

    Join Nerdy Show live in the studio as we talk about DC TV: a.k.a. the one thing the comics publisher most often gets right. DC has made an empire for themselves on the small screen, from Arrow and The Flash to the forthcoming Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Hang out with Nerdy Show hosts Cap and Tony with Flame On!‘s Bryan and Derpy Show‘s boR  as we discuss the successes and failings of DC’s TV shows and how the films are adversely affecting their TV counterparts. (more…)

  9. Nerdy Show 224 :: DC TV: The Animated Classics, The Live Action Series, & DC’s New Era

    ep224 600We’re not timid to admit we have a love/hate relationship with DC Comics. From the spotty comics quality after the company-wide reset of continuity, to the post-Nolan films, it’s fuel to send a fan fuming over mistreated characters and missed opportunities. But on TV… on TV DC reigns supreme.

    Beginning with Arrow and spinning out to the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, the modern era of live action DC shows bring superheroics to the small screen like no other (at least most of the time). In fact, there’s nothing new here – DC has ruled TV since the 1950s. In this episode, we salute the modern era of DC TV, beginning with a listener-requested discussion on Bruce Timm and Paul Dini’s animated universe; from Batman: The Animated Series to Justice League Unlimited. Next we move on to the current live action universe, and finally explore the comics publisher’s new initiative which might finally free the characters and creators we love from mediocrity. (more…)

  10. Nerdy Show 223 :: Ultimate Movie Magic: Films that Perfectly Pair Practical Effects and CGI

    ep223 600Jurassic World is out in just a couple weeks. While many are in heated debate over whether that film is going to be pure cinema fun or another prehistoric nightmare, there’s one thing we can’t deny: the original Jurassic Park was a paradigm shift in the world of film making.

    The impact of computer generated images on the film industry has obviously been monumental – especially for nerd genres like sci-fi and fantasy. The impossible can come to life! But, despite the words of famed mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm, “life” doesn’t always find a way. Now that CGI is common place, cinema is littered with less than lifelike animation and even what was once glorious doesn’t always hold up under modern scrutiny. Cinephiles agree: the best way to use CGI is sparingly and in tandem with old fashioned effects like miniatures, bigatures, animatronics, and stop motion. (more…)
