Holiday Half Pints 8: Updated Weaknesses

On the 8th day of Pintmas, the boys look back at the grand tradition of superhero weaknesses — Kryptonite, magic, fire, the colour yellow… and wood, for some reason — and come up with some updated weaknesses for classic heroes! One of them’s a state AND a band!

Holiday Half Pints 6: Superman 2

Up in the sky! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the sixth Holiday Half Pint!  Kyle finally suffers through Superman 2, and then we all sit down to talk about what he learned: that Lois is crazy, that Kryptonians are big on projecting body language, and that the Arctic Police, they come to you in your Arctic dreams.

Holiday Half Pints 5: Amusement Parks

Zero Issues Holiday Half Pint mini episode 5, oh my gosh!! Some of us got real excited over the announcement of Super Nintendo World, so we decided to pitch our own ideas for what would be an engaging comic book-related, uh, fun…place to go…place.  They all seem to end in death? That’s odd.

Zero Issues Holiday Half Pint mini episode 4!! It’s the reason of the season. Your buddy and mine, Christ! Oh, and Santa. We give BOTH of those guys the ol’ New 52 reboot overhaul and bring them up to date in this crazy world we live in now! All I will say is someone actually talks about injecting leper’s blood.

Episode 92: Big Dumb Guys Dressed Like Animals

This week we’re talkin’ all about meatheads and muscleheads! The villains whose main power is being super strong and smashing stuff! We run the gamut from the big dumb bruisers to the masterminds who match brawn with brains, and talk about what makes these characters so effective and appealing. And which meathead is the best meathead of all? (It’s the Rhino, clearly it’s the Rhino, c’mon.)

Also: we cover the launch of Vault Comics, play a round of MFK with Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man (but not the ones you may expect), and put a spotlight on a graphic novel where Aleister Crowley goes up against Hitler… uh, just in time for Christmas…?

ALSO also: an announcement about this year’s upcoming Zero Issues holiday special!

Episode 91: Time Traveling Pants

Apocalypse, meow! This week, we cover some of our favourite apocalypse-based comics, and even a few that we haven’t read. Bry tries to explain Dragon Ball’s Trunks to Merk in under a minute, Kyle says “I’m a dog” several times, and we all try to figure out just why we as a culture love the idea of the apocalypse so much.

Also: Bry challenges us to a quiz of apocalyptic proportions, and Merk shows us that the real monster is man in a Creature Commandos dramatic reading.
