249: Worf Tonight, The Hawkeye App, Mom Jeans and Other News

Let’s be honest. It’s been a weird few months. We’re all feeling it. Us too at the podcast. It’s been so strange that for the past few months we’ve barely touched on one of the cornerstones of the podcast…. COMIC NEWS!!! So this week we’re diving all in to the deep end of the news pool! Marvel events! The Boys! Witcher! Hawkeye (his show and his app)! Marauder name change! Star Trek! Worf’s Talk Show! Neil Gaiman! Dynamite! Tom King & Jae Lee! Zack Snyder and Justicecon! New Mutants! Helstrom…. or is it Hellstorm? Daredevil’s Loeb! Rob Liefeld! Mom Jeans! And SO MUCH MORE!! We’re going full comic news cable channel!

This week, we figure out who is the first among first among equals, with a very scientific, Tony Robbins-endorsed, leader-off! Cyclops, Nightwing, Captain America, Storm, Superman, Mister Fantastic, Black Panther: which one would you follow into battle? The answer may shock you!

Plus, we’ve absolutely lost our minds, and the news shows it.

208: So It’s Come to This

This week, in Zero Issues “fix this character” fashion, we try to make everyone’s favourite time traveler who is connected to the X-Men…who is a guy…and also is white…. and isn’t a version of Wolverine. Look it’s Cable, we’re trying to fix Cable.

Merk also takes us to school: learning school, that is, with an education on the first appearance of Solomon Grundy! Where’d he get that nice suit? Find out!

169 : She’s got her $#!% Together and he’s got his $#!% in a Box at his Aunt’s!

Gotta keep the status quo! Such is the mantra of many comics fans. But can it work to switch it up? Has it worked to do a big character/story shift? That’s what we talk about this week. From Nightwing Batman, to Flash Thompson Venom, to Captain Marvel, what’s worked? And which is your Spidey Quo? – lonely, ridiculous shlub, or married and a jerk? We weigh in. That plus so much more…like, birds of prey dvd collections, Bat fly jeans, Galactus Gary Busey, hood farts, someone who might have been chappy, and the almost title of this episode, ‘I’m a mob princess over here, heeeyyyyyy!’ Join us, won’t you? Please. Save us. Call for help.
