Ghosts! Cults! Haunted Houses! Creatures! Commandos! Kissing robots! John Travolta’s many, many wigs! We have it all this week! Heavens to mergatroid, do we! Our main topic is cults in comics-azrael, trans human, Kobra vs Cobra, cult of connor, the hand, scientology, 3-d man and lots more. Bry also touches on some interesting business matters of the comic heart. We also discuss the new trailers for New Mutants & Black Panther and the Moment of Zero is a dramatic read of Creature Commandos! What will Sarge do to save his robot buddy, Jake?!?! Oh, and the ending…. we have a very good ending and everyone is talking about this ending.
Oh it’s a yummy treat for you today! Kyle serves up Superboy Prime Rib, and other delectables from his DC cookbook. For the main topic today though, we delve into a sizable but incomplete deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards, dealer’s choice! Quasar! Ghost Rider (call him Dan)! And fan favourite and one destined for ‘classic’ status…. Deathwatch! Plus who knew Quicksilver was so weak? All that plus 80’s WWF comic casting, Amazon Tick, Lazarus, Old Man Hawkeye and Bry releases his James Cameron hate like a tsunami! Plus a filthy bit on which muppet Kyle would go steady with and why…. it’s disturbing. So get the kids and gather round because it’s time for Zero Issues Comic Podcast episode 126!!!!
Marvel’s Legacy. It’s here. What do the boys think of it? We delve deep into the first official instalment & the previews of what’s to come (spoilers for issue 1!) of yet ANOTHER Marvel event! Also a quick game of comic password, & Kyle discusses DC’s 1 million event from the 90’s . Also Googlin’ through the 90’s, Betty & Veronica & Harley & Ivy, Merk talks about an amazing, Marvelous coincidence and Mr Fantastic eats spaghetti! All that and more! Join us!
Join the boys as they discuss their meeting with the legendary Lynn Johnston of “For Better or For Worse” fame (as well as the upcoming companion show at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery, “Unconstrained” – featuring Kyle, Merk, and other terrific local artists)! Also: Bry pours his heart out about one of his favourite D-list characters, we do a dramatic reading… of Marvel’s Godzilla (Lots of roaring! It’s tense!! J. Jonah Jameson dies in this episode! FOR REAL!!!), and of course the news! Check it!
Presenting a special, chromium-embossed miniseries event: the ThunderCon Live Special (Part 1 of 3)! We had the pleasure of sitting on three panels during ThunderCon on October 25th, so for the next few days we’ll be sharing our recordings as some bonus episodes! Today: Kyle, Bry, and Merk are joined by Todd Shewchuk to discuss “The Changing Face of Comics” and all that entails.
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.
Canada and comics! Two topics the Zero Issues boys are especially qualified to discuss. This week’s episode is about Canadian comic series, characters, and creators! We’re talking about all your favourites, like Red Ketchup, the Polka-Dot Pirate, Nelvana of the Northern Lights, Captain Newfoundland, Purple Rider, and of course… Puck! Pour yourself a glass of Ontario craft beer and join us for an in-depth and funny chat about all things Canadiana in comics! And only like 7 weeks too late for Canada Day!
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.
It’s a full-sized lightning round! Make yourself a team of Avengers, take down the Hulk with three trick arrows, and fix Free Comic Book Day! All that and so much more, it’s cazy how much more, this is a dense episode where we bounce all over the place. Stop reading this and press play!
Age of Ultron: bad event comic, pretty good movie! This week we run long… just like the movie! And we don’t get around to everything we talk about… just like the movie! Nitpicks, things we loved, and what comes next? Also: a game of “Who’s Your Favourite Chris”. This week on Zero Issues: Age of Coaltron!
