It’s episode 23 of The Two-Headed Nerd Comicast! This week, Joe and Matt cover Marvel’s upcoming Avengers 1959 series by Howard Chakin, react to the casting news for the upcoming Powers series on FX, and get a little “PG-13” in their discussion of Image Comics’ new rating system. Take A Look, It’s In A Book is back, featuring THN’s review of Dv8: Gods and Monsters by Brian Wood and Rebekah Isaacs.

Also this week, Matt mulls over DC’s Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search for Swamp Thing #1 and Joe weeps at the Death of Spider-Man finale in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man #160. For next week, Joe looks forward to getting freaky with Image Comics’ Witch Doctor #1. Matt, on the other hand, is eagerly awaiting the return of the ultra-stoic Blackagar Boltagon in Marvel’s FF #5.
