195: It’s Just You Guys and Bill Sienkiewicz and that Duck that Cosplays


On this week’s very special episode of Zero Issues Comic podcast, the boys discuss the creative side of making comics: the trials, the tribulations, the pitfalls, the struggles…. and the fun stuff too. They delve into the how and why of comic creation, from 3 panel strips to long form graphic novels to web comics. How to break creative blocks! How to approach storytelling! How to get super frustrated! They also talk about long range artistic goals, and tricks & traits they’ve absorbed from other artist’s works over the years. All this and a ton of news, including; Dark Phoenix fizzles at the box office, Justice League too late, Jessica Jones having a secret release on Netflix, a new Legion of Super Heroes comic announcement, Bry lamenting over Wally West, the return of the JSA and Chip Zdarsky’s new Image book! Join us won’t you?

194: It Takes a Papa Smurf to Build a Village

Ryan Mackett, the TBay Movie Guy, joins us once again! In honour of Father’s Day, we celebrate all the best dads and father figures in comics – your Uncle Bens, your Pa Kents, and all the other Dads and Honourary Dads that inspire us to be our best selves and tell us to stop screwin’ around with the thermostat, dammit. And there may be a Dad Quiz! That’s right: DAD QUIZ!

But first, we dive into the news (and inevitable controversy) of Robert Pattinson’s casting as Batman, and then submit Mr. Mackett to a barrage of random questions! Things get personal, we connect, it’s all very lovely.

Episode 5: She’s Like Hal Jordan, But I Like Her

Remember when your favourite comic character was someone else entirely? The boys talk about their favourite and least-favourite replacement superheroes! Also: Bry really hates Hal Jordan, Merk remembers the time he met Nightcrawler, and after his death last episode, Kyle is replaced by a revolving door of celebrity guests!

(And can you guess that this episode was recorded about a month ago!?)
