199: Giant Watcher Baby Head

Take this podcast to the moon! To, uh, celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, we’re talking all about the moon in comics! Who’s lived there! Who’s the moon god’s avatar! Who took a rock from the moon and then turned into a werewolf sometimes, for reasons! And what would be the reality of writing your name on the moon, anyway? It’s lunar madness, we tell ya!

But that’s not all! We tackle the “end” of Mad Magazine, Paper Girls being adapted for TV, the rebirth of Hellblazer, art swiping allegations against Arthur Suydam (and the great “homage vs. stealing” debate), the continuing controversy around police using the Punisher symbol, and then we perform a dramatic reading of a Fletcher Hanks… classic. All that, AND a poem!? Wow, this episode is as big as the moon!

198: Mama Momoa!

We spent a couple episodes talking about Canada, so since the 4th of the July like just happened, so what better way to celebrate than listen to three Canadian dorks talk about made-up American cities!? Most superheroes tend to hang out around New York, so instead we’re gonna take a look at the rest of the USA… which we’re mostly familiar with through comics. Central City is a real place, right? What superheroes are protecting the Midwest? Montana? Uh… Delaware? And can you remember who served in the 50 State Initiative? Because Kyle’s got a quiz for ya!

But first: Never-ending MCU easter eggs we’ll never find! “Far From Home” theories that we got way wrong! Danny DeVito as Spider-Ham! The Abrams Family Spider-Man project! And a “Read This Now” about the entire Wonder Comics line! And the greatest Superman villain of all: TERRA-MAN!

197: Raising Cable

This week the boys take it on the road! …. or at least talk about comic characters taking it on the road. With Spidey: Far from Home coming out they discuss heroes out & about, traveling the world! And it’s interesting how many times Spider-Man has gone international…. and killed people! Seriously! JJJ was right! He’s a menace!! We also go over Peter’s bizarre multi city trip to Canada on the Bugle’s dime (JJJ was just trying to get rid of that psychopath!) Hear about the Chameleon bribing kids with drugs for their science notes and the tale of the RIGHT RIDERS (Brett Butte & all)! Which character would you take to Mardi Gras? Find out why Kyle would take Hawkman and why he seems to think all international festivals revolve around the throwing of beads. All this plus the DC Vertigo ‘thang’ and why Netflix won’t be dropping Good Omens anytime soon.  Seriously, this is a good one. Join us for a little trip…
