This week we talk music! Specifically music that crosses over with, is part of, is influenced by, or has something to do with comics. And we have a very special guest: Ken of Ocean City Defender! A real musician, who knows what he’s talking about and stuff! We talk Black Canary, Minibosses, Married With Sea Monsters, Vanilla Ice, Ramones, Pixies, Spider-Man themes, movie music… We rank the Batman themes and delve into a tasty little-known gem: the Spider-Man rock opera, Rock Reflections of a Super Hero! All this and TONS more!
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!
This week, we’re tackling game changers, with very little prep! Hopefully it doesn’t show! Those things that have come, seemingly out of nowhere, and changed the comic book industry. Grim ‘n gritty re-imaginings, non big-two comic publishers, the balance of art and writing (it was a little off in the ’90s, y’know), and the whiplash effect of what happens after Grant Morrisson leaves a book.
