We’ve reached the end of the Advent Calendar! It’s Christmas Day, and after a month of daily episodes, it’s time to relax by the Darth Vader Yule Log and have a nice fireside chat. There’s no plan, no format, just a natural conversation covering comics TV series, the Doctor Strange movie, the new Scarlet Witch comic, The Goddamned, The Massive and Ninth Wave, and even a text battle with Kyle’s daughter!
We already extensively covered the Star Wars Holiday Special… but what about those other, also-terrible Christmas specials that don’t get that level of notoriety? We’ve got some coal-level gifts for you today in the form of Liefeld “creations” and terrible Ninja Turtle costumes… but we may also touch on the best comics cartoon Christmas special of all time!
DC and Marvel aren’t the only ones who get into the holiday spirit! On this very special Advent Calendar episode, we dig deep to talk about some other seasonal books that we’ve read, or at least dread. To all a good knife!
We all know that the real reason for the season is The Big Man. Yeah, you know who I’m talking about: Drunk Uncle Galactus. So sit a spell, and let us present to you an old tyme radio play that we here at Zero Issues call A Galactus Family Christmas. Merry Kreemas to all, and to all the ham.
Today on the Zero Issues Advent Calendar, we’re talking about the best comics that take place at Christmas, and that means ripping off Alien, ninja battles, and Impulse, Impulse, Impulse! Because, let’s face it, Christmas issues aren’t always the best, so we have to dig a little to find the good stuff!
It’s the shortest lightning round episode yet as the boys answer more listener topics, this time from Shelley Bujold-Brignall, Todd Shewchuk, and Jay Boaz! How would Captain Nemo from “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” decorate for Christmas? How would OTHER comic characters decorate? And why is bald… smexy? Find out today!
