Happy birthday to us! Zero Issues is officially two years old, so this week on the podcast the boys discuss how they’ve evolved as podcasters and comic creators since the show started, then take a look back at two years of podcasts and talk about their favourite episodes, topics, bits, and more. Also: News from 2014! And a special anniversary edition of League of Baldos!
Want to be a big name director, but you’re just a fan? Well don’t put your hands on a One Man Jam™, make yourself a fan film! This week, we’re covering some of the worst (oh hi, Death of Batman) and best fan films out there. Plus, a really cool interview with Arvin Bautista, director of the Lila Cheney fan video “I Will Steal Your Heart!”
Captain America: Civil War hit the theatres this weekend, so the boys ran back after the movie to record an episode all about it! We do a rundown on the film, it’s flaws and most amazing webby moments. Then we launch into debate club mode: Team Cap vs Team Tony. Two unprepared debaters and a moderator. It’s Hardball for a fictional universe. Then we wrap it up with a super quick dip into the pool of Marvel after-credits scenes. Wakanda do but geek out over it? Join us! But bring food… we’re not your mom.
The boys delve ever so lightly into the topic of politics in comics. From Cap to Nixon, to Mutants as a metaphor, to Sam Wilson Cap, and lots more! Bry also looks for the positive in what is traditionally not looked on as a good superhero movie (Which one?!? The suspense!!) and Merk cracks the vault on some little know real life crazy tales of comic creators. Did you know the first American artist to be prosecuted for obscenity was a comic artist? I know right?!!?
That and LOTS more!…. and Christian Bale, Christian Bale, Christian Bale.
