Cover to Cover: Comic & Nerd News Discussion – Secret Invasion, Doctor Strange, Star Trek, Young Justice & Your Calls!
Welcome to THN Cover to Cover, comic and nerd news discussion recorded in front of a live audience on 5/21/2022. It's the best nerd news comic book call-in show on the whole darn internets featuring our Listenerds live! This week, we're discussing Young Justice on HBOMax, Doctor Strange MOM, why Matt loves Hemmer on Strange New Worlds, why Joe doesn't care for Shadowhawk, why Canada is SCREAMING for a new Alpha Flight book at Marvel, Deathlok can probably shoot Conan (right?) and the Punisher Kill Krew! And of course, the Question of the Week, courtesy of Old Man New Guy on the brand new Ziggurat Worldwide Discord! “Matt keeps mentioning characters that shouldn't be in an ongoing series but could have a good story told in a miniseries. So, what is your favorite example of a mini starring a character that isn't "top-tier" or doesn't deserve a monthly series? For example, the Taskmaster mini from a little while ago was great.” THN goes live every Saturday at 11 AM Central, to rap with YOU about the week's Nerd News, recent comics, nerdy TV, movies, or whatever topics are bumping around your nerdy comic book brain! Want to get in on the action? Join our Discord to talk or chat with us live or you can watch the live broadcast on our Facebook page.

THN Extra: Remembering George Pérez
Welcome to a very special THN Extra: Remembering George Pérez. Mr. Pérez passed away on March 6th, 2022 following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was a titan in the comics industry (no pun intended), co-creating or redefining countless characters and even entire comic book universes. His art graced the pages of some of the most popular and critically-acclaimed titles of all time, including The New Teen Titans, The Avengers, Justice League of America, Wonder Woman, Hulk, Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, and, of course, Crisis on Infinite Earths. He inspired aspiring artists and fellow professionals alike. It created unbreakable bonds of friendship between fans and brought innumerable new readers to comics. It's not too much of a stretch to say that THN probably wouldn't exist without him. Please join us in honoring his life and legacy with this special memorial by Jason Sacks. ----------------------------------------------------------------- If you like what you heard, please consider donating!

#660 Cosmic Longbox Classic Comic Book Reviews: April Fools!
Welcome to Two-Headed Nerd Episode #660, where our sentient Cosmic Longbox is forcing us into classic comic book reviews based on a theme. This time our sentient Longbox is pumped for spring and playing an April Fools joke on us with the theme Comic Book Fools! We'll be taking a look at characters that make humor part of their schtick, whether that's actually being funny or just dressing funny and killing people. As a bonus, we'll decide if these characters are actually funny fools, or just fools to be pitied.
