152: Your Wizard Days Are Over!

This week, we celebrate the unsung heroes of the art, the forever forgotten forgers of the flame (the ‘flame’ being comics)…. we’re talking Inkers, Colourists, & Letterers!! We delve into the world long overshadowed by those jerks, writers & pencilers! We talk about which artists in those fields grabbed our attention for the first time! And we discuss our own battles in those fields. Hear the stories of Bry & Merk getting letter shamed. Bill Watterson! Dave Stewart! Bill Sienkiewicz! Many more! And also hear Bry go into the very little known groundbreaking LGBTQ characters for Pride Month! And Merk wraps it up with a dramatic read of one of the most bizarre creators ever…. Fletcher Hanks! Hear the tale of Tabu the Jungle Wizard!! Join us won’t you? Even if just to hear about Captain Pissgums…. yea… you read that right…. it’s real…. real thing.

149: That Story Not Good Made No Sense

DEATH!!!! It’s all around us. Like cheese and poor customer service, but this week on ZERO ISSUES COMIC PODCAST we’re going head on, face to face, general seriouso, no bull$%#& with comic book deaths….. so …. really…. nothing…. because everyone comes back. Let’s talk about that! Also Kyle does a death quiz that Merk fails at miserably once again but it’s super fun…. to watch him squirm. And Merk does a Marvel trading cards death game! 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!!

147: Doctor St– Mordrid

This week, we’re talking about the hottest movie for the hottest year: Doctor Mordrid, and 1992. But just what is a Mordrid, and what makes him a Doctor, you might be asking? Well, he’s not quite a Strange, and he’s not quite a mop, but man, do we try to tell you.

ALSO: Nothing! It’s all main topic this week. Get outta here why are you reading this part even.

145: Magic Cheers

Whoa! Do we have a show for you this week!?! Yea. We do actually. And it’s pretty magical! We’ve got tons of movie news from Gambit, New Mutants, Dark Phoenix, Rom and a bizarre bit from the Smallville files! Then Bry crushes us with a Thanos quiz (he coulda been a chill Titan) before we launch into our main topic of TV pitches! With the launch of Krypton (ha! Launch!) we make our own offshoot pitches. 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? And a bunch more (seriously, we’re a goldmine, Netflix. We should be showrunners). And we end with Kyle taking us through a Marvel trading card, hulky smashy smashy game! Tune in blue trelievers!

144: Madness!

It’s back! We’re doing that March Madness thing again. Who’s taking home the trophy this year? Will it be a horse? A bear? A Jax from Mortal Kombat? Probably not that third one, though I think he got robbed, frankly.

We’ve also got hot hot news, try our best to predict the future (Erik Larson didn’t go off on a twitter rant today, did he?) in the Warmup, and play Character Storm in the Moment of Zero!

142: Creaky Bones and a Jughead Face

This week, the boys are down a member. Bry is off looking for the cure for polio but Merk & Kyle are still here for LIGHTNING ROUND!!! A barrage of quick topics & bits it is! Merk will explain the plot of Dragonball….even though he’s never watched an episode! We’ll talk why Erik Larsen thinks the terrorists are winning, what random characters could make up a new FF, how and why Spider-Man could be renamed Spinnerette, why Aunt May should have her own book, who Vin Diesel could play next in a comic movie (Mr. Leatherbee anyone?), who’s on the worst dressed list, who pees sitting down and FINALLY…. a dramatic read of the holy kind! Join us…. it’s only two of us. We need a third. Otherwise, we’re all out of whack!

140: Long Pause, Then a Sawhorse

Oh my! Today is a day the boys travel in time! Whether it’s to tell you the comic news (because it’s recorded several weeks before it airs!), or Bry goes to back over a decade to make a superhero movie better, or we go ALLLLL the way back and talk prehistoric characters…. this is the length they go to to entertain! You’ll hear such bits as…. the super soldier sermon…just going to get space cigarettes baby!… Lex needs a face on his tummy… that’s right, his last name is STEGRON!….his father was a neanderthal who was just set in his ways….this is the 30 seconds we talk about that comic we haven’t read…my favourite part is when they refer to dinosaurs as honkers… How old is Zabu? Cut it open and count the rings…so Tony Shalhoub takes up archery…. AND SO MUCH MORE!!!! Join us, won’t you…

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!
