EDITORS NOTE: Attention readers of Nerd Bastards. We our proud to present our newest comic book column. Forgetting our past meager attempts at blogging the latest happenings in the comic-verse, we are now offering examinations via Youtube personality Kelly Carlton (aka F’N Pryde). ‘Ole Pryde here is a busty, foul mouthed comic connoisseur. She’s here to give you the run down of this week latest grabs in a segment called “Pryde’s Picks”.

Hi guys, Pryde here. I’m poppin’ my Nerd Bastards cherry with my very first entry. (Squee!) I’ve been doing “Pryde’s Picks” on my YoutTube page for a while now, but sharing myself on this platform, with this audience, is the coolest. So, yeah, I have boobs and read comics. Aren’t I the darnedest? From here on out, I’ll be your guide on the most topical offerings this side of the Marvel and DC universes and everything in between.  I’ll tell you what’s hot and what’s not, and be cursing like a sailor throughout. Enjoy.

We are gonna start with one book from DC (Batman Detective Comics #2) 1, do a butt load of Marvels (Age of Ultron #9, Thanos Rising #3, All New X-Men #12, Superior Spider-Man #11), and round it out with a few books from Vertigo Comics (Astro City #1, The Wake #1).

And… here… we… go…
