All that AND Kyle debuts a new warm up game! BLOCKBUSTER STORM!! PS- Bon Jovi hates apes.

221: A Vunda Voman Christmas

Happy Holidays fellow Comic geeks! We have a treat for you today on xmas day…… a Wonder Woman Christmas story from a 1977 vinyl…. and we talk over the whole thing! Sounds great doesn’t it? It totally is. Think MST3K but with an even LOWER budget. Listen to this tale of a sinister villain that kidnaps Santa Claus in order to trap Wonder Woman in order to be Queen of the World in order to  rule as the master race…. uh… whoa…. the 70’s were a rough, awkward time.  Need that break from the xmas familial madness? We got you covered… well for 20 minutes or so.

219: A Pretty Bitchin’ Cape

Rivalries!!! This week we settle those age old questions; Who ultimately wins the Thing vs Hulk battle? Captain America-Sweet Pirate Boots or Military gear? What does the S on Jughead’s Shirt stand for? Terrance Howard vs Don Cheadle? Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter? Who’s the best Turtle? Which Spidey actor would win in an actual fight- Holland, Maguire or Garfield? Those disputes and more solved… FOREVER. All that and Kyle runs a What if warm up which ends up with us pitching a Wolverine/Dracula odd couple sitcom story…. that is pretty fantastic. And news! Sex Criminals! Robert Pattinson! Black Adam! The Rock! Flash! And lots more. Join us won’t you….

214: Ain’t No Party Like a Zombie Party Halloween Special

Our annual Halloween Special is here and do we have a special one for you tonight!!! Not one but TWO dramatic reads of two devilishly divine horror comic tales! First up is “Nightmare World” written and art by Basil Wolverton (from Weird Tales of the Future no 3, 1952-so you KNOW they got the future right!) and “Corpses…Coast to Coast!” from Igor Studios (originally appearing in Voodoo no 14, 1954-with a title like that, how could we resist!?!). Of course we dramatize it utilizing the deepest depths of our classically trained comic dramatizing skills! Join us for this, poison mayo, the Russo Brothers and a horrible ‘special one time halloween theme (that will never be used again, but is for the bad movie lovers in us all).

211: Fluff Me

This is the end, beautiful friends…. for these unfortunate characters! This week we pitch endings in the spirit of several Marvel titles that tell the last story of that character. However we don’t know which characters until the last second so we’re making up their endings on the fly!! How does Machine Man go offline? How does Angel fall to earth? How does Spidey sputter? How does Blade bite it? That plus a House of X game, witness (with your ears) the origin of JIMBERJACK, get a rundown of some Marvel NYCC news, Joker movie first weekend numbers, and a bizarre, rambling open that even we don’t understand how we went from Namorita to ‘what is a casserole’? Join us, won’t you? And please bring your favourite casserole.
