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.

347: Click This! You’ll Hate It!

It’s new comic day, so therefore it’s new podcast day too!!
And this week we’re talking directors. Film directors. And specifically film directors that do NOT like comic book films (for a variety of reasons). We discuss that a bit but then decide which comic book films those directors should do!…. if we could make them.
But first we start with a smorgasbord of CBR like article titles…. and we MAY go a little overboard.
All that and news, news, news! Controversy! Controversy! Controversy! From Webtoons ads to Ezra Miller comic cover variants to Miles of Thor… we gots it!

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!

344: He’s Got a Tubular Spatial, Baby!

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!
