346: QuicksilvEST!

Blue streak speeds by, it’s just Quicksilver!
Kind of a rude guy, that’s just Quicksilver!
Pietro, yeah he’s pretty fast
But also, he’s a total ass
Quicksilver, this week we try to fix him up!

Also, to celebrate the summer, Bry takes us back in time to go over the history of the comic book swimsuit issue!

Plus a whole bunch of news, including a challenge to Chip Zdarsky to come on the show and explain why he (didn’t really) steal Bry’s idea (I’m sure that didn’t happen) to turn the Penguin into an ecoterrorist (Chip really it’s cool this isn’t libel)!

345: I Would Like to Taste the Horsey Sauce

The Thunderbolts are ready to strike the MCU! A director has been hired, and that means it’s time to wildly speculate about who and what the team of villains-turned-heroes will be when they hit the big screen! To the point that we almost pitch a story, including a topical introduction to a certain Fantastic villain? And perhaps even a Merc with a mouth?? But anyway: What version of the comic will it look to adapt? Which MCU villains will make the cut? Will Zemo keep the purple balaclava or will he don the weird silver pointy mask of Citizen V? And just imagine: Werner Herzog as Baron Zemo Sr.!

And what news! The Boys is coming back for a 4th season, and Jensen Ackles opens up about show creator Eric Kripke’s diabolical methods! TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is out literally tomorrow, with some excessive special editions coming in the probably distant future! Joe Quesada is retiring from Marvel after 20+ years in charge! And a a chance glimpse of “Ugly Namor” has us chatting about when superheroes weren’t all Hollywood hot & fit and whether they even should be! Maybe some comic podcast hosts could be superheroes! MAYBE!

It’s LIGHTNING ROUND TIME!
Krackakoom?
A bevy of short topics this week such as the recent Marvel Banner of War Hulk/Thor battle (in which we discuss what Celestial bits are floating in space), Kyle runs a game of SUPERFIGHT where comic’s most powerful square off…. with guns? Bry challenges the boys to bring back cancelled animated comic shows and Merk runs a game for a multi company crossover… Jughead, Stardust and a Green Lantern ring, anyone? Which characters are dog people and which are cat people? We must answer this burning question! Battle of the Alfreds! And EVEN more in this efficiently packed episode!

343: Prisoners of the Anti-Gravity Room!

This episode’s all about that one Katy Perry song!

Jk, tricked you!

This week, we’re talking about Dark Horse Comics! Their long, storied history as the underdog of comics, our favourite books, our first exposures, and what comes next for them since their acquisition by Embracer Group!

But first: Eisner nomination news (or Eimnomnews, if you prefer), we reveal the winner of the 2022 DC Round Robin, and we have Weird Al news, even! Hot damn!
