ReNerding Episode 2: Locke and Key! Severed! Birthday Boy?

Hellish (day after!) Halloween, ReNerders! Not only is our favorite helliday, it’s ALSO Matt Rox’s birthday! YAAAY! We here at ReNerding sure are glad he was born, mainly because without him, all the wonders that befall your ears wouldn’t exist! Maybe. We’d have to explore alternate timelines.

(The previous paragraph is slightly null and void as we ended up releasing this episode the day after Halloween due to some ghoulish technical difficulties. Sorry about that! But we wanted to spread the Halloween spirit into November!)

Anyway, we continue our horror-ific first couple of episodes by discussing two amazing, wonderful, and eerie horror comics: Severed, written by Scott Snyder, illustrated by Attila Futaki and Locke and Key: Welcome to Lovecraft, written by Joe Hill, illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. Matt and Chris share what they dug, what didn’t turn them on, and whether or not they will ReNerd over these two comics again in the future (spoiler alert: THEY WILL!) Listen as they discuss their individual creative projects, Matt’s inability to discern between North and South American artists, and Chris’s heavy breathing (see notes below for more info.)

And HEY! Did you hear the big news?! Matt and Chris are going to be guests on the amazingly awesome and awesomely amazing Ranctcor Pit Podcast on November 6th! ReNerding is part of the JediCole Universe podcast family, and The Pit is one of our brethern. We are so excited to get to be on there! The podcast streams live, and if you can’t make it then, listen to it whenever you can!
