Hey! Check Out Our 2 For 1 Special! The Comic Shoppe on Tues & Afronerd Radio on Wed-Both Airing at 7pm Eastern-Discussing Pop, Politics & Comics!
Our apologies once AGAIN for Sunday's cancellation of our Afronerd Radio broadcast, but don't fret there's always The Comic Shoppe to pick up the occasional slack! Stop by tomorrow at 7pm at thecomicshoppe.com and listen to the usual cast of characters wax on about the following fantasy/graphic novel/sci-fi laden fare: our expectations for the upcoming airing of second season of The Walking Dead-will it eventually diverge from the comic or remain 90% "spot on?" ; more arguments (ahem, civil talk) about DC's 52 number ones-Did the Crises storylines ever occur and will we see the return of Earth 2?; and speaking of DC's 52, did Geoff Johns break Aquaman out of the character's alleged "corny" depowered state?; in video game news, Nightwing appears to be a DLC character for this month's release of Batman: Arkham City; Scotland's University of Dundee offers a degree in Comic Studies and lastly our latest and favorite graphic novel picks from last week.
And remember The Comic Shoppe is just our cyber entree! Pull up a chair this Wednesday for the Mid Week in Review edition of Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk (also at 7pm) and listen in on the rarely uneventful discourse. The call in number for both programs is, of course, 646-915-9620 and the topics on the table are: the passing of R & B songstress and classic hip hop label president, Sylvia Robinson; more speculation of a Black James Bond with actor, Idris Elba being a strong contendor; still more on Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain (i.e. his belief that Dems have Blacks brainwashed; actress Janeane Garofalo's comments about Cain and Gov. Rick Perry's infamous camp name, etc); the occupy wall street protests and if time permits, Rush Limbaugh (the expert.....ahem)...on slave blood and authentic Blackness. Feel free to contact us via email or instant message at firstname.lastname@example.org...oh and least we forget....Sherri Shepherd's performance on The View is just troublesome:
