Classic Zero Issues 4: The Roast of Hal Jordan

The Zero Issues July Vacation Classic Spectacular comes to a close! As the boys try to remember how they got to the blue side of the Moon, enjoy what may be the most classic “classic” of all:

From beautiful downtown Coast City, it’s a star studded event filled with laughs, tears, masked vigilantes and utter humiliation! It’s the ROAST OF HAL JORDAN!! Yes, the Green Lantern is in the crosshairs of his peers as they celebrate this legendary hero while, simultaneously, tearing a strip out of the emerald knight! Join Batman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Kilowog, Guy Gardner and others as they… reminisce… about dear ol’ Hal. The early years. The awkward years. That mask that hides nothing… even his shame. Sponsored by Sinestro Industries.

Classic Zero Issues 3: Free with the Kisses

We’re still on vacation! This week we’re in freaking ATLANTIS!!!
So while we drown, you get to listen to Merk’s pick for a CLASSIC ZERO ISSUES episode….. Free with the Kisses….. that’s the name of it. Free with the Kisses. Not an offer. Well… we’ll think about it.
Here’s the original post….
It’s Valentine’s Day, Zero Issues style!! This week it’s short but sweet, as we dig deep into classic romance comics to perform a Dramatic Reading you… won’t…… forget. A dance couple in the big city! A smooth club owner with his eyes on the prize! A creep with a gullet full of chicken bones! And a big twist that adds a new element to the whole concept of reading comics out loud! Doesn’t that sound romantic!? (N… not really!)

Classic Zero Issues 2: Bry Goliath

Classic Zero Issues Week 2! Here’s the original post:

It’s the little things that make up life, and it’s the little super heroes (and also the big ones!) make up this episode! We’re talking about size-changing supers, and answering questions big and small: which is more useful, why are there so many, and why are they always couples?

Also: Kyle steals a Warmup topic whole cloth from Stop Podcasting Yourself, and Bry adds one more to the League of Baldos!

Classic Zero Issues 1: The Monster at the End of This Event

The boys are on a very real vacation around the world! First stop: the Savage Land! But while we enjoy some R&R, why not enjoy a classic episode from the archives? We’ve chosen a few old favourites to re-present! First up:

The adventures of your favourite comic characters will never really end, but… do you sometimes wish they would? This week the boys talk about “personal end points”, those stories that seem to perfectly wrap up a hero’s journey, with our favourite examples and how it can be hard to keep following them into their next run.

Also: A round of Superhero Mad-Libs! And an extremely mature Dramatic Reading of a golden-age Blue Beetle comic where Dan Garrett takes on a, uh… large member… of his rogues’ gallery.
