161: I Think that Bear was just Alan Moore – Buscemi Vision Edition

This week the boys delve into a secret. They reveal hidden truth. They admit to their failings as comic book nerds….. by revealing what ‘classic, must read, epitome of the craft’ books they haven’t read…. but talk about frequently. How many have you read? Can you admit to the ones you haven’t read?

All that plus Bry has a ‘read this now’ with a Rocketeer book! It’s got dinosaurs!! Which leads to a discussion of what our favourite dinosaurs are and why. It’s SHOCKING!!! Plus the ongoing saga of James Gunn, and the Silver & Black films! Plus PLUS…. Pink Panther and Green Hornet! Together at last!! Join us, pwetty pwease.

So we’re almost at the end of this HUUUUGE arc for the MCU. What’s next? Where can they go from here? What stories can they tell? And can we get Quasar killed in a movie already?!? It’s a shorty episode where we delve into what we they they can do next for the big movies, Netflix & other series for Marvel. Have you ever wished for a Jeremy Piven Hawkeye series….? We’re not sure about that either. What new characters can be introduced to the big & small screens? Bry is ‘all about the D-Man’ apparently. And we gush with excitement over the idea of She-Hulk. That and LOTS more jammed into this 30 minute ride! Bring your Loonatics shirt. No, seriously. Kyle just keeps talking about them. Over and over and over and…..

153: Everyone’s Singing

Isn’t it weird that the sound of lightning has its own name? I think it’s weird. Why do I bring that up? Because this week’s all-audio podcast is a Lightning Round!

Gasp as Bry tells us what Gen 13 is! Recoil in fright as Merk hosts the most difficult quiz game of all time! Marvel at Kyle’s deft knowledge of bad sitcom The Single Guy!

All that and the Third Summers Brother, finally revealed but better than Vulcan.

It’s all death all the time this week. Tune in to hear such horribly odd things as ‘Four Norm Macdonalds’, “Mysterios’ juice’, ‘Steel Wool Pubes’, ‘Geoff Johns loves Berries’ and ‘Point Bry-eak’. And warning… it’s starts off super gross and weird…. and gets only slightly less so as we go along. But it’s worth it for all the laughs. It absolutely is!! Join us!!

Who wants to see a sexy teen Pop Tate? Casper, pre-death? Zenn-la, pre-Galactus? Julibee 90210 (does a california mall babe love chili fries?)? Tales of the Mojoverse? Magic Cheers?
