173: Excelsior!

This week, it could only be about Stan. To mark the passing of the most famous (and to some infamous?) comics legend, we’re talking all about the co-creations, the stories, the impact, the collaborations, the creative controversies, the legacy… of Stan “The Man” Lee.

But first! Would’ja believe there’s other comics news this week? And we reveal a forgotten musical theatre production about Bob the Goon! Listen up, true believers!!

157: I Don’t Need Luck, I Eat Nuts

This week we pay tribute to the life and career of Steve Ditko! From the art, stories, and characters that helped shape comics, to his long and varied history in the industry, the wide-ranging influences he left, and the personal and political philosophy he lived and created by.

Also: We blast through a rapid-fire news segment, do a quiz about what ridiculous events did and didn’t cause Bill Bixby’s David Banner to transform into the Hulk, and perform a Dramatic Reading of the first-ever appearance of Squirrel Girl! A is A, and Zero Issues is Zero Issues!!

Episode 89: Like a Fruitopia Commercial, but All Ditkos

In honour of Steve Ditko’s recent 89th birthday, and the release of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in theatres, it’s time to talk all things Ditko: the work, characters, legacy, philosophy, and the recent projects of the famously reclusive comics legend! We have an objectively great time! Also: we talk about the Doctor Strange movies — that’s right, movies! — and give Wong some long-overdue respect.
