  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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…)

  4. Nerdy Show 208 :: Mutanimals Return – Featuring Kevin Eastman, Paul Allor, & Andy Kuhn

    ep208Fresh from the sewers! This episode is dedicated to the wildest creations to spill forth from the realm of science-fantasy: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their incomparable supporting cast of mutants, misfits, and Mutanimals.

    The Ninja Turtles has captured the minds of three generations of fans and counting. Whether you grew up on the classic black and white comics, the ’87 animated series, TMNT Adventures, the ’03 animated revival, or have just joined up with the current generation of Nick and IDW – chances are good you’ve been lured in by the series’ crazy adventures, weird humor, or gnarly characters at some point in your life. In this episode, we pick up our ongoing trek through the turtles-verse and talk with creators both revered and new to the scene.

    Hear TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman discuss the series’ legacy of characters and the many forms the Turtles’ universe has taken – from the Q&A we hosted at the ’14 Heroes Con. And hang out with writer Paul Allor and artist Any Kuhn – the  team behind the revival of one of the TMNTs most revered supporting titles: Mutanimals.

We’ve got the perfect reading list to kick off 2015.  But indies aren’t all we read – find out what books from the big two are kicking ass and hear us rage about the ones that fill us with ire.

    We also sit down with Atomic Robo co-creators Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener to discuss the BIG changes about to hit their beloved book and how they’re bringing the greatest science adventure comic directly to the people. What’s more, devoted fan Zombiepops requested a Microsode where we talk specifically about our favorite comics outside the mainstream, so we’re joined by host Luke McDuffee for a journey into our most beloved indies and obscure titles.
