STK652556There must always be a Thor…..Who is it? The Nerds take a look at Thor #1 out this week.  Thor is no longer able to wield Mjolnir following the events of Original Sin.  With no one able to lift the great hammer, including Odin, Thor leaves the surface of the moon to face a Frost Giant threat on Earth.  What about this issue reminds Glenn and Kristi of SeaLab 2021?  Plus, Thaddeus and Ben make a wager!


Agents_of_SHIELD_logoSeason 2 of Marvel’s Agents of Shield is full swing with 2 episodes airing so far!  Has Agents finally found it’s footing?  How much pressure is on Agents now that it is the only source of new material until Avengers 2 next year!  On the opposite side, Gotham is 2 episodes into their inaugural season.  Is it trying to be more than what it is?  Can a show about Batman survive without Batman?  Is this another Smallville in the making?

Edge-of-Spider-VerseA big Spider-Man crossover is coming!  In this second does of comic book awesomeness, The Nerds review the Edge of the Spider-verse issues 1 through 3!  Issue 1 deals with a Spider-Man in the 1930’s.  Issue 2 deals with the possibility of Gwen Stacy being bit by the radioactive spider and not Peter Parker!  Issue 3 reads almost like a manga.  Spider-Man is a successful scientist that gave himself his super powers.  He’s dealing with an invasion from other worlds!  How do each of these Spider-Men fit into the larger crossover that’s coming?
