Our Year End Blowout Sale! Comic Shoppe@6pm & Afronerd @7pm! Avengers; Dark Knight; Aurora & Sandy Hook shootings & More! OH and Daryll B.'s Link Suggestions!

Well we made it to another year, people! From the crew at Afronerd, we wish you a prosperous, informative and especially SAFE New Year! To make things immensely easy and digestible, listen to The Comic Shoppe's "Podcast Avengers" tonight at 6pm as they summarize the highlights of 2012 in pop and pulp culture. A discussion of expectations for 2013 (i.e. new comics, video games, movies, TV shows, etc) will also be integral to this year end broadcast. Call the hosts live at: 646-915-9620!

And what kind of show would we have without a year end colloquium on Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk, starting at 7pm. Join Dburt and Captain this evening as they encapsulate the year's top stories (i.e. the death of Whitney Houston, the re-election of President Barack Obama, the Aurora and Sandy Hook shootings, Hurricane Sandy, etc) and Dburt will discuss briefly America's slave legacy in the wake of last week's highly successful slave themed film, Django: Unchained.

Our Year End Blowout Sale! Comic Shoppe@6pm & Afronerd @7pm!

And now some linkage from The Shoppe's Daryll B:

I hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays and even though I am not around for this upcoming Sunday, you just knew that Daryll B. would have a bunch of articles for an AfroNerd LinkBlog!

-It is the season:


What comic nerd with a heart could resist that? And on that note...


..even the Prez can't break Wee Spidey's webbing!

-Sometimes I really love devoted fans:


Welcome back Gail!

-3 weeks left and I'm not doing fine:


Ok I still think that this kid Michael is Peter and FauxOlivia's that was "erased" and eventually will grow up to be September. The great thing is, I used to say stuff like this and 97% of you would be confused. Now it probably only 75%.. I'd say that's progress...

-I can't believe that I'm going to say this but this news is bittersweet....


I got to admit without Glen Mazzara going forward, i am worried that Robert Kirkman by himself won't have the clout to keep "studio suits" from implementing "suggestions" to "improve" the show...

-Combine childlike love with soulcrushing adulthood and you'll get:


I hope Charles Schultz got a laugh out of this whereever he is now...

-Chris Sims gives his best Christmas Movie ever:


Yippie-Ki-Yea to all...and to all....*BOOM!*.... was that an explosion?

-Maybe times are changing...?


Can we talk Tibet now?

-Season Premiere Announcements!



DC Nation January 5th! Ultimate Spidey January 21th! Daryll Being pissed on how both channels have handled their cartoon properties? Never-ending!

-Finally, Free Comic Book Day falls on May 4th and Comics Alliance has a complete listing of the "gold" and "silver" line books that you can pick up for you and the little ones around you:



You have heard the show. You already might know which books I'll be positioning/fighting for.....

Again, I'll see you folks after the New Year begins with my typical venom and sass (SyFy's scheduling/handling of Haven in recent weeks and Dan Slott's Spidey fan death threat reception get a pass because I being "nice" *grits teeth*) but you know while I'm gone, SOMEONE's going to mess up badly to earn my ire. I will guarantee you reviews of The Hobbit and Django Unchained by then also. So Until Next Time AfroNerd Readers of all ages: Keep Fantasizing!
