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!

130: The Exact Right Amount of Goldblum

Thor: Ragnarok came out two weeks ago, so in that classic punctual Zero Issues fashion, we’re sharing our thoughts about it today in another quick one-topic episode!

Fans and critics alike seemed to love the movie… and for the most part, so did we! But nothing is without criticism, so we’re digging deep on what DIDN’T quite work for us as well as what did. And we come at it from some pretty different perspectives, leaving no piece of Mjolnir unturned!

Episode 20: Game Changers – Batman is a Series of Circles

This week, we’re tackling game changers, with very little prep! Hopefully it doesn’t show! Those things that have come, seemingly out of nowhere, and changed the comic book industry. Grim ‘n gritty re-imaginings, non big-two comic publishers, the balance of art and writing (it was a little off in the ’90s, y’know), and the whiplash effect of what happens after Grant Morrisson leaves a book.

Episode 9: No Thank You On The Hypertime

Thanks to a temporal plot contrivance, the podcasters of three eras assemble to talk about time travel in comics… as the fate of the future hangs in the balance! Which basically means talking about the X-Men a lot. Also: Bishop vs. Cable, the best-ever use of Stryfe, three Thors are better than one, and the boys try (and fail) to explain Hypertime!
