Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victims of the recent Nice, France terror attack-keep the faith and stay on the watch. Greetings to our REALLY growing listenership and welcome to the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's GrindHouse podcast-airing this Saturday at 6pm sharp! Join your "Podcast Watchmen" as they tackle the following issues: we're going to get this right, even if it hurts us-Ms. Bamidele Sogbesan, CEO of the Nigerian based comic company, Vortex. Inc stop by to discuss West African comics/Blerdom; yet another iconic Marvel death has occurred in the latest Civil War II crossover event (hint: you really don't want to make him angry); augmented reality videogaming has taken over the summer season as Pokemon Go captures a nation (and characters); we finally discuss second season sci-fi with the return of Mr. Robot, Killyjoys and Dark Matter; popular artist, Frank Cho walks off of Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman project over "censorship" and "political agendas" concerns; as the Wonder Woman film draws closer to its 2017 release date, it appears that no female writers are involved in the film's creative development (a film about an EMPOWERED woman...huh?); Dburt's assertion that there will be a point of "singularity" when technology makes fan films indistinguishable from commercial product, hence Star Trek Continues and more recently, the upcoming He-Man: Curse of the Three Terrors cartoon; a Io9.com piece highlights the return of Walter Mosley's Easy Rawlins with a new detective novel entitled, Charcoal Joe. The novel posits how crime can deter literal Black genius. And lastly, is China's epic League of Gods a counter to America's X-men films? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
