Episode 97: I Should Sit Through More Garbage

More like stay inna Riverdale, amirite? This week we’re talking about the hottest teen drama to be based on a seventy-year old property, and the hottest teacher to be based on a seventy-year old, respectively. What did we like about it, what did we hate about it, and will Jughead ever eat a goddamned hamburger?

All that, plus Merk’s got a very erotic Read This Now, and Kyle wants to tell you all, hey, get Fingered. Bill Fingered!

Phew, saved it.

Episode 96: Just a Page of Cyclops Crying

What happens… when good guys… go bad? Whether it’s due to brainwashing, reality-altering, mental breakdown, or just plain ol’ choosing evil, hero heel turns are a proud comics tradition! We talk about the bests and the worsts, from the slow breakdown of the Scarlet Witch, to Hal Jordan going evil and/or being possessed by a yellow space bug, to Deathstroke’s stupid insta-evil drugs, and whether the Superior Spider-Man counts as a body-swap or brainwashing. Also! We discuss how to save Agents of SHIELD and tie it closer to the Marvel movies (but not THOSE ones), and finally try to come up with a proper tag line after like 3 years!

Episode 95: Opposites Attract

 

Sad National Opposites Day, nobody! In dishonor of the day, we’re not talking about bizarros, or negative versions of pre-existing characters. We absolutely don’t mention Zazzo-Plus, we don’t try to distinguish between different kinds of opposites, and we refuse to make up new opposites for characters.

Uh, not also: Kyle continues to do no haikus ever in the warmup, and Merk debuts the worst new ongoing segment, Character Storm!

Episode 94: Snuggle Party

It’s 2017! A new year! And we’re recording on Blue Monday… the most depressing day of the year…. so what are we going to do? We’re going balls out with positivity! All happy stuff! We’re taking negative things and spinning them happy! What’s new coming out we’re excited about? What cool book did Kyle just read?  What new, horribly good Roger Corman movie is Merk ecstatic about? What does Bry think about the state of comics today? What Trump tweet backfired and shot a graphic novel to the #1 spot? What’s your rose, and what’s your thorn? Pull up a bean bag and get ready for a snuggle party, ’cause…. we’re snuggling? We’re not but feel free to bean bag it. Lots going on this episode!

Episode 93: 2016 Got Worfed

It’s officially 2017. 2016 was….. was….. exhausting. So on this first episode of a new year, we have a wake for the previous year and the many comic characters that passed. Raise a glass and join us. And, not unlike the LOTR, this weird episode has 17 endings. GANDALF!!!!

Holiday Half Pints 12: Xmas Day Blooper Smorgasbord

It’s here!!! Christmas has arrived so the final day of our Holiday Half Pint has landed. Today…. us being our goofy selves. A short collection of clips and bits that didn’t make it into regular shows because they just didn’t jive with the episode or it’s just so ridonkulous or we just colossally mess up. Whatever the reason… our gift to you. Us being goofs.

Holiday Half Pints 9: 1996

The Half Pints continue! 2016 is finally nearing its end, so today we take a look 20 years to the past… to 1996! It was a different era for comics! But maybe not too different?

(Well, eventually we do all that. Tangents abound, listeners!!)
