The Comic Shoppe Airs at 6pm & Afronerd Radio at 7pm-A Double Feature! Spiderman gets a sidekick; The return of Marvel's Illuminati; Racist Music

Hear ye, Hear ye, and come one, come all to another fun fact finding mission, courtesy of The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio! Join Daryll B, Captain Kirk and Dburt as they unravel the following topics for this Sunday's (at 6pm) broadcast: the Illuminati (ahem, the Marvel Comics version) returns thanks to Brian Michael Bendis; actor/director, Ben Affleck may or may not have been offered the chance to star and direct in the proposed Justice League film; our impressions of the new Bourne Legacy film with Jeremy Renner in the titular role; the truth of Marvel and Fox Studios bartering over intellectual properties (i.e. "I'll trade you Silver Surfer and Galactus for Daredevil") and lastly, the crew opines on Marvel's latest experiment-Spiderman gets a sidekick named Alpha.......uh oh.

And now for part two....Afronerd Radio airs after the Shoppe at 7pm! Pull up a chair and listen to the musings of Dburt and Captain Kirk pertaining the following newsworthy stories: a brief continuation of the issues from Thursday's show (Serena Williams' Crip walk Olympic win, the scientific plausibility of human immortality, Quincy Jones' daughters on their racial experiences); legendary actor/activist, Harry Belafonte thinks that current entertainers like Beyonce and her husband, Jay-Z have abandoned notions of social responsibility and author/Manhattan institute fellow, Dr. John Mcwhorter's recent New Republic piece likens White supremacist music to current commercial Hip Hop......whew. Feel free to contact the hosts live at: 646-915-9620 or via IM/email-afronerdradio@yahoo.com. Imperius rex, brethren!
