We've talked comics quite a bit over the first couple of episodes of The Nerdy Legion so it's time for us to switch topics for a couple of weeks and this week, we take a look at some of our favorite childhood cartoons and why we still think they are awesome. Join Martin, Paul, Julian and Rob on a very sentimental episode that really takes us back in the day!

Once again, I am amazed by the range of tastes from the panel, so let us know what you think! What was your favorite childhood cartoon?

Welcome to the second episode of The Nerdy Legion, our bi-weekly roundtable show where we tackle all things nerdy.

In this episode, we start off talking about the recently released Deadpool trailer, and Martin's long and complicated history with Rob Liefeld before moving on to some of our favorite crossovers of all time. For some reason, we all decided to pick some of the most obscure comic book crossovers ever published so be sure to tune in to hear our thoughts or check out the show notes to see what we chose.

Thanks for joining us on the very first episode of The Nerdy Legion, a bi-weekly show about geek culture. Each episode will cover a different topic of interest as it is really about just a group of friends getting together and talking about things we love.

 
In our first episode, we dive deep into comic book movies, including a little bit of talk about the new Fantastic Four film and discuss whether every comic book movie really needs to show us an origin story or it comic book movies have gone mainstream enough where the story should be what really matters. Stemming out of this conversation, we talk about anything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to Stormwatch, to Gambit and the X-Men, and spend a good bit of time talking about writers and artists we really love - and hate!
 
If you enjoyed this episode, stayed tuned for episode 2 as we get together and discuss some of our favorite comic book crossovers of all time!
