Comic Nerds Unite: Comic Book Podcast

This is it!  We made it to 100 episodes!  And to celebrate, we take a pretty deep dive into one of the most critically-acclaimed comics ever written, The Sandman by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith, and Mike Dringenberg!  We cover Volume 1, issues 1-8, plus I talk about Green Lantern #154 from 1982!  Come celebrate 100 mediocre to pretty okay episodes about funny books!

If you love four friends burpin', opening nerdy presents, & talkin' comics, this episode is for you. We cover the titanically influential The Authority Vol. 1, originally from Wildstorm Comics, now from DC Comics, written by Warren Ellis, pencils by Bryan Hitch & inks by Paul Neary. We also open our presents we got for each other on air, & we talk about the other books we enjoyed this week. They were- The new Dr. Strange series by Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo, The 'Nam #s 1, 3, & 4 by Doug Murray & Michael Golden, Excalibur #42 by Alan Davis, & Totally Awesome Hulk #1 by Greg Pak & Frank Cho. This episode was a bit more laid back, especially in the "burping on-air" aspects, if you're not into that other episodes are more structured. Thanks for listening!

This week we cover one of Marc's favorite characters, Power Girl! We read Power Girl #s 1-3, written by Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Amanda Conner, published by DC Comics in 2009. We also discuss The Invincible Iron Man #62 from 1973 and the post-Secret Wars Nova #1, from 2015. Unfortunately Marc had the wrong setting on for his mic, so his sound is a bit crappy, but at least you'll get to hear all his burps. grin emoticon

It's the ookiest, spookiest day after Halloween episode ever! We cover the ludicrously lurid Locke & Key Vol. 1 by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez for the Reading Assignment, and also discuss the positively putrid Providence #s 1-5 by Alan Moore & Jacen Burrows, and the supremely sinister Spider-Gwen #1.
