Let's do Nerd Lunch
I have my Top 10 Films of 2012 post all ready to go, but I'm gonna push it back to tomorrow in favor of telling you that I got to join in one of my favorite pop-culture podcasts this week. Nerd Lunch is typically hosted by three guys and I love the way they organize the show. They always keep a fourth chair open for a guest and in addition to whatever the week's topic is they have cool, recurring features like Nerd To Dos and letting each guest ask a question of the next guest.
One of the usual hosts, Jeeg was absent this time, but CT, Pax, and I talked about non-superhero comics. We discussed some classics, some ones we grew up with, ones we love now, ones we want to try, ones we don't want to try... We even spent a little time trying to define what constitutes a superhero comic and I got to create a rock band from characters of a TV show of my choosing. It was a blast and I hope they ask me back, perhaps to defend Neil Gaiman's Sandman, which I totally volunteered to do, but I'm up for whatever. Call me maybe.
Anyway, I hope you'll give it a listen and yell at your mobile device when we don't mention one of your favorite comics. That's what I do with most podcasts I listen to and it's half the fun.
