The Nerd Off: (Protected Content)
Shout out to the hardest working nerds in the game! And Aaron if he has time.
Don’t underestimate how refreshing it is to hear from people who actually like the stuff they talk about. Listened to a friend go off on a twitter rant this week about how he knows Marvel or DC will never give him the kind of stories he wants to read as a Black man, so I dropped a panel from Nighthawk in his mentions and he was all about it. Let him get excited before I told him it was from Marvel but because people like him talk about what’s not out there instead of supporting what’s actually out it didn’t sell enough to keep up solicits.
And like clockwork Rod drops off that Miles Morales heat this week, and Kriss out here ruining lives internationally. Things have really never been better, and while I understand not giving big companies cookies for finally coming around we also can’t act like it’s not happening just for some purity bullshit. If you read the books and aren’t satisfied that’s fine, but when you’re just shitting on stuff you haven’t even seen I can’t take you seriously.
And I know this is how DC is going to get me with that Batman movie. After they almost broke people’s nerd rage when Ben leaked that Deathstroke shot and we thought it was from Justice League, they’ve been saying all the right things and putting Geoff Johns out front. They’re trying to convince us he did a rewrite on Wonder Woman and course corrected on Justice League, but I won’t really know if it’s all PR or he actually has the creative control to reign in Snyder until they come out. And I didn’t realize it until DPalm shared the article but WB pushed out Alan Horne after he made them all that money with Harry Potter and Dark Knight and let him go to Disney and he’s been beating their heads in ever since. Hope they get it right this time. Appreciate the show as always fellas.
