195: It’s Just You Guys and Bill Sienkiewicz and that Duck that Cosplays


On this week’s very special episode of Zero Issues Comic podcast, the boys discuss the creative side of making comics: the trials, the tribulations, the pitfalls, the struggles…. and the fun stuff too. They delve into the how and why of comic creation, from 3 panel strips to long form graphic novels to web comics. How to break creative blocks! How to approach storytelling! How to get super frustrated! They also talk about long range artistic goals, and tricks & traits they’ve absorbed from other artist’s works over the years. All this and a ton of news, including; Dark Phoenix fizzles at the box office, Justice League too late, Jessica Jones having a secret release on Netflix, a new Legion of Super Heroes comic announcement, Bry lamenting over Wally West, the return of the JSA and Chip Zdarsky’s new Image book! Join us won’t you?

185: I Like the Idea of Them Being Best Friends

This week is a shorty but a goodie… and sorry, it’s kinda raunchy. It just went that way. We have no control over it. It’s the Kree programing. No news, no warm ups, just two segments this week. Bry drops a hilarious game of MFK on the boys, including ridiculous Legionnaires (the heroes from the future, not the disease) and some familiar Aunts. Then Merk introduces a new bit called ‘Connections’, making connections across companies and media. Did you know Shaggy from Scooby Doo’s last name is Rogers? Could his long lost father be the Sentinel Of Liberty himself, Captain America??? And what does he think of his hippie, deadbeat, scooby snackin’ kid??? They also delve into two Garfield stories, a trippy trip into machine man land, and we all learn about Parker…. y’know…. Parker! Parker? PARKER!!! Not to mention we connect the Red Skull to Skeletor! And it turns out they’re besties!!!

168: Stop Trying to Make Sage Happen

This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!

Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!
