About

Our Mission

The staff of Word of the Nerd is dedicated to providing alternative news and features that you can’t find on the big corporate owned nerd websites.  Comic book reviews from independent creators and publishers that highlight the best of indie comics.  No nonsense reviews of television, movies and comic books written by fans for fans.  Every staff member is passionate about the subjects they cover and prove it in their writing.

We are not biased based on corporate ownership or financial considerations.  We provide an independent point of view from a truly independent staff of writers and journalists.  You’ll never find click bait, intrusive ads that crash your browser, intentionally provocative articles or irresponsible reporting.  The staff is dedicated to bring you well thought out and entertaining articles without the need for flashy gimmicks.  We are dedicated to making this website your go-to source for indie comics, cosplay and entertainment.  Also check out our selection of great podcasts and other features and bring out YOUR inner nerd!

 

History

Word of the Nerd was originally established as a simple blog back in 2007. It was a vessel for one giant nerd to get his thoughts out to the then uninterested masses. After a few years of on again, off again blogging, Word of the Nerd grew into a real labor of love and with the addition of over forty volunteer writers and staff, it has grown even more.  The website is approaching its 10th year and it is growing bigger and bigger every day.  Word of the Nerd has earned a reputation for professionalism and integrity that everyone on staff tries to maintain.
