This week, we’re playing one of our favourites: Comic Book Cards Against Humanity! You know how this works: one of us reads a “call” card with a blank space on it, and the other two try to fill in the blank with the funniest thing we can using our “response” cards. And we wrote all the cards, so it’s going to be gross, because we’re gross, gross people. Enjoy, won’t you? Enjoy it in video mode, even! Bam!
Oh, and hey! Here’s our codes! Sign up for Massive Decks, and then put these codes in to use our cards!
RXQ4J, 1EO3K, 1248W, LYQRV, L6D3P
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 that time o’ the season and the boys love to make up their own comic stories…. so …. it’s time for Christmas Comics Pitch! Each of them come up with their own weird and wonderful comic book for the season. From a certain notorious X-Family holiday get together, to a decidedly mutated version of a Christmas classic, to a monstrous adventure for a certain jolly guy and his reindeer, we have your holiday comic fix here. All that and a quiz on a comics legend, and a delightful mishmosh of newsy news! Join us. We’ll bring the nog.
We’re all extremely ill with Olympics fever this week, and the only cure for Olympic fever? Our own Olympics, with Jughead, and Bumblebee, and Randy Quaid! Listen in as we argue over which of our clearly-not-thought-through champions deserves the gold in some of the worst events to not be in the “official” games (including some that used to be events, but got the boot)!
Plus, we’ve got a warmup of all-butler Olympics (all-butlers!), and all the news you can handle!
Hell-o, my little ghoulies and gobloids! It is I, the Crypt Haver, ready to deliver you another tale of… oh, what? It’s a Lightning Round episode? They don’t really talk about scary stuff at all, except for one of the ten segments in the episode? Really? The rest is all about giving super heroes branding slogans, or a weird mid-’80s Avengers issue that Merk read, or a frank discussion of what Batman’s favourite song is?
I’m still getting paid, right?
(With apologies to Bry: I couldn’t find the knife man you were talking about, so I used the album art for celebrated folk punk band AJJ’s 2011 release, Knife Man)
That’s right, it’s another Lightning Round! These are always fun, and we’ve got some pretty great ones this time, gems such as:
-Best JLA/Avengers Lineups
-Dumbest Alternate Reality
-Reverse Wizard Casting Call
-What Property Would You Love to Work On?
It’s a lightning round week! Three topics, no sense!
What villains do you never want to see again?
Why aren’t there any really good comic book video games?
What are the best and most iconic costumes?
Those are the questions. Find out the answers if you daaaaare.
