It’s the THN Nerd News Recap for the week of 4/1/23 – 4/8/23!

Each week, Joe and Matt collect nerdy headlines to discuss, and this time it was a trailer bonanza! Prepare for our breakdown of the Star Wars Ahsoka trailer and first look reactions to Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse and Blue Beetle, where the Nerds learn all about Conrad Carapax, nemesis of the Golden and Silver Age Blue Beetles! Plus, more Fall of X comics are coming! And finally, the Nerds answer the Question of the Week!

Question Of The Week!

This week’s question: who is your favorite comic book cosmic/godlike being? Do you have a favorite pantheon (ex: Marvel’s Greek gods)? Who is your least favorite; which cosmic d-bag makes you groan whenever they show up?
