155: Wolverine Gets Deported

It’s just past Canada Day! It’s the Fourth of July! Tensions are rising on the Canada-US border! So for three Canadian comic fans and creators… what does this mean!? This week we talk all about the impact of an increasing trade war and border-security squabble on our favourite fictional Canadian-Americans, and poke a little good-natured (ha ha, good natured, we promise) fun at our national rivalries! Alpha Flight ruuuules!!!

Also: So much news! Bry pits Kyle against Merk in a Canada vs. USA comic quiz! And Merk tells a spooooooky story about he and C.G. Rackham’s travel to a haunted Ontario comic-con!

140: Long Pause, Then a Sawhorse

Oh my! Today is a day the boys travel in time! Whether it’s to tell you the comic news (because it’s recorded several weeks before it airs!), or Bry goes to back over a decade to make a superhero movie better, or we go ALLLLL the way back and talk prehistoric characters…. this is the length they go to to entertain! You’ll hear such bits as…. the super soldier sermon…just going to get space cigarettes baby!… Lex needs a face on his tummy… that’s right, his last name is STEGRON!….his father was a neanderthal who was just set in his ways….this is the 30 seconds we talk about that comic we haven’t read…my favourite part is when they refer to dinosaurs as honkers… How old is Zabu? Cut it open and count the rings…so Tony Shalhoub takes up archery…. AND SO MUCH MORE!!!! Join us, won’t you…

136: The Worst Marvel Movie Is Still Thor 1 or 2

This week, the boys are joined by Ryan Mackett, the TBay Movie Guy, to answer the year-or-three-old question: are comic books killing movies? The answer may surprise yo if you’ve never listened to the show before and think that we think comics are killing movies.

Plus: So much news discussion it’s almost criminal (but it isn’t, we checked and everything), casting ’70s He-Man AND genderswap Batman film franchises, and more delicious recipe…names!

Episode 60: Overexposed Characters – Could Wolverine Be a Helicopter?

This week we’re talking about overexposed characters in comics and movies — your Deadpools, your Harley Quinns, your Wolverines… your Batmen? — and what impact becoming massively, all-consumingly popular can have on these characters and their natural appeal. Also: everything to know about DC Rebirth in 4 minutes and 30 seconds, rejected podcast topics, weird variant cover pitches, and a few tangents as the boys talk about the Ghostbusters reboot and then get super excited reminiscing about Colorforms!

Episode 9: No Thank You On The Hypertime

Thanks to a temporal plot contrivance, the podcasters of three eras assemble to talk about time travel in comics… as the fate of the future hangs in the balance! Which basically means talking about the X-Men a lot. Also: Bishop vs. Cable, the best-ever use of Stryfe, three Thors are better than one, and the boys try (and fail) to explain Hypertime!
