Patrick: In the third installment of Dark Horse comic’s “Archie vs. Predator” things take a turn from worse to absolutely abysmal for the residents of Riverdale. A teenage predator is on the loose, and hunting and murdering Archie’s gang of pals one by one, or as we saw in the last issue, in a giant group.  Series writer Alex De Campi promised some ridiculous over the top moments in this book, and she has delivered so far in spades.

Patrick: Harrow County #2 The great and frustrating thing about writing and reviewing comics alongside Myles and Drew each week is that we read and enjoy a lot of the same books.

  Myles: Longtime listeners/followers will know I’ve often been a tad harsh on many DC titles since the New 52 rebranding in 2011. Justice League was one of those titles. We had just been stripped of everything and everyone we knew, given a brand new “team origin” fighting Darkseid, which has since been turned into the animated film Justice League: War, and it seemed off.

Jason Fry crash lands into the Nerd Cave this week as we talk about his novel, The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra, as well as the work he’s done and has planned for the Star Wars Universe. We tried our best, even threatened to make him walk the plank, to get him to spill details on the new Star Wars film, but Mr. Fry was immune to our ways of making people talk!
