139: They Made It Up!

Wakanda foreeeeveeer! Today, in advance of Black Panther coming out (oh, it’s out now? Cool, go see that!), we’re talking about T’Challa. From origins to current incarnation, we feel bad about not being smart enough to cover it all.

Plus! In advance of forgetting Valentines Day (look, we record these things in advance), we find some make-up gifts using the 1991 Marvel trading cards, and have a super-villain-or-actual-serial-killer quotes quiz. More fun than you can shake a bing bead at this week on Zero Issues!

137: A Very Solemn Snoogans

Whatever happens in Madripoor stays in Madripoor! The boys once again welcome Ryan the TBay Movie Guy to talk SECRET IDENTITIES – the history of the alter ego, the heroes who use them, the ones who go public, the methods and effectiveness of hiding your masked self, the real-life celebrities who share a civilian name with superheroes, and more!

Also! Kyle guides us in a round of Six Degrees of Batman, we dig into news about Captain Marvel and Dragon Ball Super, and then perform another dynamic Dramatic Reading of the classic comic where Superman adopted Jimmy Olsen!

136: The Worst Marvel Movie is still Thor 1 or 2

This week, the boys are joined by Ryan Mackett, the TBay Movie Guy, to answer the year-or-three-old question: are comic books killing movies? The answer may surprise yo if you’ve never listened to the show before and think that we think comics are killing movies.

Plus: So much news discussion it’s almost criminal (but it isn’t, we checked and everything), casting ’70s He-Man AND genderswap Batman film franchises, and more delicious recipe…names!

135: Hey Crime!

This week the guys reach into the Cursed Longbox of the Damned, not knowing what they will pull out. Is it horror? Super heroics? Eroticism? Yes.

Also: Character Storm wriggles its way back into our hearts, and Kyle tries to be a serious reviewer of biographies. They just happen to be biographies done in the graphic novel style, and there’s nothing wrong with that Margaret!

133: I Can’t Believe DC Ate All Those Dogs

A new year has arrived, landed upon our doorstep like a much needed word of encouragement after a year of wtf moments. For the first episode of 2018 we do a year in review….we have to…. just to make sense of it all. The Marvel PR nightmare that was 2017 obviously dominates the look back but we also talk comics we enjoyed and then turn our gaze ever forward….. 2018, what will you bring? There is light on the horizon, starting with Snagglepuss. We also talk Diamond distribution. What will the year bring for the monopoly? And personal creations… what are Bry, Kyle & Merk up to comic wise? All that plus- Kyle explores what superheroes do to make ends meet. Doc Oc’s Otto shop? And Bry has an episode of League of Baldos with our first bald woman entry!! And no, it’s not that woman from the Star Trek film. Join us!!!
