Welcome to Episode 203 of the Two-Headed Nerd Comic Book Podcast!

This week, we discuss the fundraiser to benefit artist Wilfredo Torres. You can send donations directly to Torres at wtorres1972(at)yahoo(dot)com.

We also discuss the jump of Greg Rucka and Michael Lark’s Lazarus from page to screen, and the curious return of Barb Wire.

Plus, we talk about the roller coaster lives of superheroes in our Ask a Nerd segment!
