372: Wish For A Happy Ending

After this week, nothing will be the same… because we’re talking about event comics! Big bombastic crossovers, character derailment, and issues that have Alpha or Omega as a number! Sometimes we love them, and sometimes they drive us to stop collecting comics altogether, and sometimes, just sometimes? They teach us to love.

But before we can learn to love, we have to learn to create our own very special event using the power of Mad Libs! Will the Zero Issues gang ever be the same? No! I already said they won’t at the beginning of this! Pay attention!

371: That’s Bad Glue

POWER RECORDS COMING THROUGH!!!!

Oh yea. It’s power records time. The 45’s from the 70’s that, oh so weirdly, dramatize comics. In this case Captain America 168 ‘And a Phoenix Shall Arise!!’. It’s a bizarre one… and slightly awkward in parts. Falcon with no wings. Cap a little down on himself and stuck in glue. Hot glue. Hot nazi glue. There’s a mystery unfolding, won’t you join us as we laugh it up?!

370: A Dire Warning of the Future

Happy 2023! This week, we sit down (in person, no less!) to talk about what we definitely think is going to happen this year in comics, movies, and even in our own podcast.

But before we look forward to the horrors of 2023, we first come up with some resolutions for ourselves: read more comics and make more comics, mostly! Hey, it’s us, what else did you expect?

368: A James Gunn Rock-Afire Explosion

It’s beginning to look a lot like CHAOS! Usually we’d have a short bit of holly-jolly fun for you this week, but the DCU rumours and news and rumours and announcements and responses and outright lies for clicks are flying fast, and we are forced to do this holiday season wacky-backwards style and take a look back, and a look forward, at the state of the DCU and predictions for what we’ll see in the future! And also comics, we also do that for comics in general. (But we’re not too happy to be trapped in the Fandome again, so we may get extra raunchy! Consider that a warning, youse.)

Oh, but there’s so much other news! The TMNT and Usagi team up one more time at IDW, Netflix closes an umbrella as their programming gets mysterious and spooky and altogether ooky, The Boys give the world the first good NFT, and we share some “very real” news articles from a comic-news site that will not be named here! Hey, year’s almost over, let’s get wild!

Come fix yourself your nog of choice, listen in on our relaxing chat, grab a slice of Fraggle, and enjoy.

366: The Meaning of Christmas is Organs

Shocking news, everyone: it’s DECEMBER! But at least we’ve got some holiday specials to enjoy – starting with the Guardians of the Galaxy one that came out recently! Let’s watch that and talk about it, huh?

But that may not be enough holiday spirit for us, so let’s also pitch some special presentations of our own! Imagine, if you will: Nathan Fillion finally joins the MCU in an ULTRA cheery story straight out of the 1991 Marvel Holiday Special! Werewolf By Night and Man-Thing fend off burglars in a monster-ized “Home Alone” style adventure! A holiday card from The Thing kicks off a bizarre claymation-animated odyssey straight outta Marvel Two-In-One! Miserly Bruce Wayne is plagued by ghost Robins in a Wayne Manor Christmas Carol! Are you ready for… the Twelve Nights of What If…? And there are plenty more under the podcast tree!
