Comic Nerds Unite: Comic Book Podcast

We head boldly into the post Secret Wars Marvel universe by covering The Vision #s 1-4! 

This ennui-filled bit of suburban malaise was written by Tom King, with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta and colors by Jordie Bellaire.  We have our good friend and Marvel continuity expert Jeff Uppole on the show to help us wade through the mire that is Vision's continuity. 

We also talk about Amazing Forest #1 by Ulises Farinas, Erick Freitas, and a whole slew of artists, Mystery In Space #17, and Vader Down #1 by Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato.

It's Valentine's Day, and to celebrate, we found the most tragic romantic story in comics:  Mad Love!  It's written by Paul Dini and art is by Bruce Timm.  It's the story of how Harley Quinn came to be so infatuated with the Joker, and it was adapted into an episode of Batman: The Animated Series!

Marc also treats us to a special "every 15 episode" intro featuring some of the comics industry's brightest stars!

Tim and Marc get a weird MP3 in the e-mail, which turns out to be from 2011 and is a review of DC's New 52- Batman Volume 1, The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo!  Weird, right?  The MP3 also contains reviews of the New 52's Detective Comics #s 0-18 by Tony S Daniel, John Layman, Greg Hurwitz, and Jason Fabok, Catwoman #s 1-12, and Harley's Little Black Book #1. 

We also discuss the news of DC revamping Hanna Barbara properties in comic book form, Wal-Marts selling trade paperbacks, Tim's crusade to get RC Cola into social media, a letter from #1 fan Kent Wagenschutz, and some Time Master guy in the corner who didn't stop break dancing.

We wax philosophical about the past year with our awards episode for 2015.  In it, we talk about our favorite writers, artists, book, characters, which usual CNU guest hosts are or are not sleeping until 8PM and/or Watching Talespin, how great a sponsor our unofficial sponsor RC Cola is, how many buttrams it would take to get Tim to read another Convergence mini-series, how Jeremiah Lambert Art will "poo this", if talking about villains from The Walking Dead is appropriate or not, how many times saying the word "banana" will prepare listeners for spoilers, and some more.  Not much more, but some more.

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!
