176: Batman’s Super Smooth Running Machine Christmas

Well it’s that time of year….. Time for the Zero Issues Boys to put together a little audio cheer in podcast form. This week’s cheerful bliss comes in the form of a Batman story on vinyl, telling the bizarre tale of Batman, Robin and Robin’s replacement, Dr John, as they sing Christmas carols, run in flip flops and and swing on chandeliers in homeless shelters. Join us for this short tale of Gotham’s miserable Christmas, won’t you?

Gotta keep the status quo! Such is the mantra of many comics fans. But can it work to switch it up? Has it worked to do a big character/story shift? That’s what we talk about this week. From Nightwing Batman, to Flash Thompson Venom, to Captain Marvel, what’s worked? And which is your Spidey Quo? – lonely, ridiculous shlub, or married and a jerk? We weigh in. That plus so much more…like, birds of prey dvd collections, Bat fly jeans, Galactus Gary Busey, hood farts, someone who might have been chappy, and the almost title of this episode, ‘I’m a mob princess over here, heeeyyyyyy!’ Join us, won’t you? Please. Save us. Call for help.

168: Stop Trying to Make Sage Happen

This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!

Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!

167: I’m a Reporter

I tried to put that Eminem song about Venom in this one, but it just…it wasn’t in the cards, y’know? Also how silly is it that there’s a song about Venom that Eminem did? Were the guys from 21 Pilots busy? Ha, good one, episode introducer.

Anyway! This week, in celebration of Venom, we’re talking about what the sequel’s going to look like. And did you know that Sony has the rights to around 900 Spidey-related characters? We pitch movies featuring some of those folks, as well!

All that plus news, brews, and Bebop and Rocksteady just being very strong children.
