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.

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!!!!

You know what would be cool? Being able to fly! Or teleport. Or eat peach pits without dying. But we don’t understand how any of that stuff would actually work, so we try to figure it out. We try so, so very hard, this week.
Plus we’ve got newz you can uze, a mini quiz, and the debut of League of Baldos! Today!

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.
Ready for a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence? We are! We kinda are. This week, we point a barbwire baseball bat at over-the-top violent comics. Are they good? Can they ever be good?
