Did you miss us? We missed you!

This week, we’re celebrating fifty episodes (plus a bunch of bonus episodes, a whole Advent Calendar full of minis, and more) with the biggest, dumbest “don’t get it right and you drink” trivia contest ever!  Who will bring home the Koozie of Champions? Who has the most obscure questions? Who thought that we should record this episode immediately after recording two other episodes?  Really guys, who thought that, we’re all cuckoo.

Episode 47: Merchandise – I’ve Got the Kessel Runs

Zero Issues is back, and this time we’re talking all about comic and pop culture merchandise! Particularly the really weird, bad stuff. Join Kyle, Bry and Merk as we ask “why would anyone decide this was a good idea?”, discuss a fake line of superhero beers that should totally be real, quiz each other on whether strange items of merchandise are real or fake, and ponder if Marvel is purposely tanking their own properties.

Episode 40: The Cull List – AM I SHOUTING?

Who lives? Who dies? We play God this week (lower case god? Upper case? Bry, you’re the expert, help me out), and talk about what comic book characters we don’t really want to see above ground anymore. Be warned: not everyone makes it out of this episode alive!

We’re fine, though.

All of us are fine. Not dead.

Episode 39: Daredevil – The Horniest Man in New York

Hey, you guys like Daredevil? We sure do! We like gritty Daredevil, we like swashbuckling Daredevil, we like Affleck Daredevil, even… We like ’em all! Except Shadowland, Shadowland was dumb. Let’s chat about this fella!

Oh, and hey! Zero Issues is now one year old! It can walk, a little, and is real close to saying its first word. My guess for what that word will be: neeeeeerds.
