151: With the Power of His Adult Man Brain

Betty vs. Veronica? Star Trek vs. Star Wars? Batman vs. Literally Anyone? Fans have debated these questions for decades, and finally, FINALLY, we settle ten of the biggest arguments in fandom once or for all! (And we mean it! No more debating after this!)

Also! Merk recommends three indie comics you should check out: Frankenstein: A World of Gods and Monsters, Eternal, and Futility! Kyle spotlights something special from Deadpool 2! And Bry and the boys dig into some news items involving Stan Lee, Marvel’s commitment to diversity, and the future of The Walking Dead!

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!

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!

Kyle takes the episode off sick, so he gets a shout-out in the title!

Comics into movies? More like movies into comics! This week, we’re checking out adaptations, THE OTHER WAY! Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Mario, Game of Thrones, and the eternal lack of a Lord of the Rings comics are just a taste of what’s in this episode. So stick it in your ears, Sally!

Episode 6: A Valid Use for Lightning

Grandfathered in! This week, the boys talk about things that maybe made sense at the time of creation in comics, but don’t especially hold water these days. Plus: a thoughtful discussion on art vs. commerce in the internet age, because why the heck not?
