354: Keepin’ it Skreal

We got invited to D23! For real! We definitely didn’t get scammed by a fake email and then drive all the way to Hollywood, only to wind up locked outside of the Disney compound! And we’re definitely not sneaking into the party dressed in the uniforms and/or skins of waiters! And all this we do to bring you, yes YOU, all the corporate-owned mega-franchise news you can handle, because that’s what heroes do.

MCU announcements? We got ‘em! Upcoming Marvel games, and some that aren’t even mobile junk? You know it! And even some non-Disney news about Usagi Yojimbo hopping from IDW back to Dark Horse? Sure, we have that too, why wouldn’t we!? Join us on a wild Disney journey from the secret mascot-infested tunnel system all the way to Kevin Feige’s throne room / D23 stage! And discover which co-host is the jerk who spoils a show for another co-host! Intrigue!!

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)!

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!

340: Destination Moon Knight

He is the terror that flaps in the night! But, like, a very well-lit night! He is Moon Knight, and this week, we’re talking about his TV show! We have you a week, and now we’re going to spoil the whole dang thing. You have been awooga-warned.

But first, we want to talk about comic book artist and writer George Perez, who we sadly lost this past week. George was absolutely one of the nicest guys in comics, and his work shaped many comic book readers’ childhoods.

319: 400 Heads in a Bag

Three grown men talking about action figures, that’s what audiences crave, right? Because that’s what we’re doing this week! We lament over the loss of REAL Hulk Hands, and come up with some great new toys for kids of all ages, from 18 to 118!

But first: news about Dark Horse taking over Star Wars, Danny Devito taking on Penguin writing duties, and JK Simmons taking over the world. And then, a very special quiz from our very special birthday boy, Bry!

315: The Skrull Cows Show Up in This!

You KNOW it’s serious when it’s superhero event time and “war” is in the title! Even though it happens with just alarming regularity, really. We dig deep into a wild variety of superhero war stories: The Kree-Skrull War, The Evolutionary War, and the Secret War (not that one)! Some will change comics forever, others will make absolutely no sense at all! But all will say something about the eras they were published in, from the swingin’ early ‘70s, the excessive late ‘80s, and the deeply cynical mid-2000s!

But that’s not all! We play a random-selection game to create all-new Amalgam characters between newer Marvel and DC characters! Hawkeye marketing pokes the hornet’s nest regarding Marvel and creator royalties! And Danny DeVito writes a Penguin comic!? He’s gonna play this stinkin’ podcast like a harp from hell!
