Nerds United Episode 24

Excuse me while I pat myself on the back…

Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!
Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!

I FINALLY read Trinity War. I mean, the story is only about a year old…it was time.

It was a great read led by writers Geoff Johns, Jeff Lemire, and Ray Fawkes. I felt that the artists were all able to keep the style similar (Pandora didn’t look drastically different when drawn by Ivan Reis than when drawn by Joe Prado.) If you haven’t read it yet, get Trinity War!

It also raised interest in some tertiary characters like the Phantom Stranger and the Question. So either I’m a really eager reader or DC did something right.

Now onto this week’s show:

The entire tone is relatively quiet. It was late, I was trying not to wake my wife. The dogs were asleep on the couch after a thunderstorm (which I talk about…because they’re my kids).

  • Comic book inspired cartoons, from the 90’s classics X-Men, Spiderman, and Batman the Animated Series to some of the shows out there for today’s kids (Green Lantern the Animated Series, Wolverine and the X-Men, Batman the Brave and the Bold).
  • Television series’ – and I’m already kicking myself for not even mentioning The Walking Dead (or Preacher). Apparently I was in a masks/capes mood last night.
  • Also…this happened!
  • I field a question from the Facebook page and we dive (pun intended) into the world of Aquaman and the Others.
  • And plans have been put into motion for another audio commentary episode. Necessary materials have been shared. You’ll have to listen aaaaaall the way to the end to see what I’m talking about.

That’s it for this week, kids. Enjoy the show. “Like,” Share, Comment, re-tweet. Share your thoughts, comments, criticisms, questions, etc.
