223: It’s a Terrible

IT’S A TERRIBLE…costume. Terrible. The worst. Which character wins THAT distinct honour? There are plenty battling in that secret war. Join us as we discuss ridiculous costumes! PLUS…. we go over a bevy of movie news, from Christian Bale’s reported talks to join Thor, to Scott Derrickson exiting Dr Strange, and the new New Mutants trailer, Morbius rumblings and the ‘indefinite delay’ of the Hawkeye series (it may have been because he was going to wear THIS costume). All that AND Kyle debuts a new warm up game! BLOCKBUSTER STORM!! PS- Bon Jovi hates apes.

222: Hindsight and 2020

And just like that, 2019 is over, and 2020 is upon us! Last year, we made a whooooole bunch of predictions for how 2019 was going to go, and now it’s time to crack open that audio time capsule and see how well it bears out, along with making some new predictions for this year! Did…did we get anything right? We did? Cool!

Plus: what better way to start a new decade than with Character Storm?

Minus: news this week, as nothing has happened yet this year. Nothing!

221: A Vunda Voman Christmas

Happy Holidays fellow Comic geeks! We have a treat for you today on xmas day…… a Wonder Woman Christmas story from a 1977 vinyl…. and we talk over the whole thing! Sounds great doesn’t it? It totally is. Think MST3K but with an even LOWER budget. Listen to this tale of a sinister villain that kidnaps Santa Claus in order to trap Wonder Woman in order to be Queen of the World in order to  rule as the master race…. uh… whoa…. the 70’s were a rough, awkward time.  Need that break from the xmas familial madness? We got you covered… well for 20 minutes or so.

219: A Pretty Bitchin’ Cape

Rivalries!!! This week we settle those age old questions; Who ultimately wins the Thing vs Hulk battle? Captain America-Sweet Pirate Boots or Military gear? What does the S on Jughead’s Shirt stand for? Terrance Howard vs Don Cheadle? Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter? Who’s the best Turtle? Which Spidey actor would win in an actual fight- Holland, Maguire or Garfield? Those disputes and more solved… FOREVER. All that and Kyle runs a What if warm up which ends up with us pitching a Wolverine/Dracula odd couple sitcom story…. that is pretty fantastic. And news! Sex Criminals! Robert Pattinson! Black Adam!

215: These Are My Treads… This is My Spout!

War, man. War. Did you know there are comics about it? Like, a bunch of them? It’s what we’re talking about this week, and boy, we go through a bunch of ’em. Famous ones like Sgt. Rock and Howling Commandos, formerly-unheard-of ones like Captain Willy Schultz (look it up!), G.I. Joe of course, and just about everything else.

214: Ain’t No Party Like a Zombie Party Halloween Special

Our annual Halloween Special is here and do we have a special one for you tonight!!! Not one but TWO dramatic reads of two devilishly divine horror comic tales! First up is “Nightmare World” written and art by Basil Wolverton (from Weird Tales of the Future no 3, 1952-so you KNOW they got the future right!) and “Corpses…Coast to Coast!” from Igor Studios (originally appearing in Voodoo no 14, 1954-with a title like that, how could we resist!?!). Of course we dramatize it utilizing the deepest depths of our classically trained comic dramatizing skills! Join us for this, poison mayo, the Russo Brothers and a horrible ‘special one time halloween theme (that will never be used again, but is for the bad movie lovers in us all).

211: Fluff Me

This is the end, beautiful friends…. for these unfortunate characters! This week we pitch endings in the spirit of several Marvel titles that tell the last story of that character. However we don’t know which characters until the last second so we’re making up their endings on the fly!! How does Machine Man go offline? How does Angel fall to earth? How does Spidey sputter? How does Blade bite it? That plus a House of X game, witness (with your ears) the origin of JIMBERJACK, get a rundown of some Marvel NYCC news, Joker movie first weekend numbers, and a bizarre, rambling open that even we don’t understand how we went from Namorita to ‘what is a casserole’? Join us, won’t you? And please bring your favourite casserole.
