233: Colossus’s Magical Death Stench

In a very, very topical turn of events, this week’s episode is all about diseases and viruses in comic books. So, from the safety of our various bunkers (no, really, we’re all recording remotely, just like a real podcast!), we bring you the sickest episode yet. Do we talk about the Legacy Virus? Uh, you know it. The Clench? Yessuh. D…Death Stench? Yes, though I am honestly not sure why.

Heck, even our Warmup is disease infested, as we do the nastiest Character Storm to date. That, and an earful of news about the many shakeups that the comics industry is going through right now!

215: These Are My Treads… This is My Spout!

War, man. War. Did you know there are comics about it? Like, a bunch of them? It’s what we’re talking about this week, and boy, we go through a bunch of ’em. Famous ones like Sgt. Rock and Howling Commandos, formerly-unheard-of ones like Captain Willy Schultz (look it up!), G.I. Joe of course, and just about everything else. Because when Superman fails his eye exam, it’s up to the rest of us.

Plus: so much Disney+ news, and the return of Hulk Out or Fake Out, now with 100% more jingle!

213: The Schist Hits the Fan

Are you ready to get spooked out of your goddamned minds? This week we watch Man-Thing, the hottest Marvel movie of 2005 (look, the only competition it had was that Fantastic Four movie with Michael Chiklis). It’s free on Youtube! You can just watch it! It’s as if they know they aren’t going to be making the other $29 million of their $30 million budget back.

Also: who’s in charge of putting out bad Marvel stickers now, what are the highest-selling comics (and highest-selling places where you can buy comics), and who wants to play the Penguin now?

180: Respect My Much Larger Badge

We’ve been bad boys this week, so what are we going to do when supercops (and super-adjacent cops) come for us? What is The Spectre’s hell, how does a lady become a cop, and just who is the man known only as Greenballs? All this and more will be revealed this week on Zero Issues!

171: Heckblazers

You ever read an issue of The Invisibles…on weeeed? Look, we were going to post this episode ever, but we got soooo high, and, like, we were all whoooooa… I know I’m offending someone with this writeup, and y’know what? I’m sorry that your subculture has been co-opted by bros. It’s not your fault, and I shouldn’t be picking on you about it. I’m sorry.

Anyway we talk about weed in comics this week. Oh and Bry’s asleep, so he’s veeeery quiet.

Sorry.

160: Phish Speaks to Aquaman

This week it’s all about music in comics! We talk about some existing fictional bands, assemble an X-Men rock supergroup, make just… so many bad superhero music gags, and compile a complete ‘80s soundtrack for the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics. And even sing a few songs! It’s musical madness up in here!!

Also! Some very big news, including the upcoming Batwoman TV series! A “Read This Now” about a surprisingly special Aliens licensed comic! And we create a five-course meal based on ‘90s DC heroes!

155: Wolverine Gets Deported

It’s just past Canada Day! It’s the Fourth of July! Tensions are rising on the Canada-US border! So for three Canadian comic fans and creators… what does this mean!? This week we talk all about the impact of an increasing trade war and border-security squabble on our favourite fictional Canadian-Americans, and poke a little good-natured (ha ha, good natured, we promise) fun at our national rivalries! Alpha Flight ruuuules!!!

Also: So much news! Bry pits Kyle against Merk in a Canada vs. USA comic quiz! And Merk tells a spooooooky story about he and C.G. Rackham’s travel to a haunted Ontario comic-con!

147: Doctor St– Mordrid

This week, we’re talking about the hottest movie for the hottest year: Doctor Mordrid, and 1992. But just what is a Mordrid, and what makes him a Doctor, you might be asking? Well, he’s not quite a Strange, and he’s not quite a mop, but man, do we try to tell you.

ALSO: Nothing! It’s all main topic this week. Get outta here why are you reading this part even.

144: Madness!

It’s back! We’re doing that March Madness thing again. Who’s taking home the trophy this year? Will it be a horse? A bear? A Jax from Mortal Kombat? Probably not that third one, though I think he got robbed, frankly.

We’ve also got hot hot news, try our best to predict the future (Erik Larson didn’t go off on a twitter rant today, did he?) in the Warmup, and play Character Storm in the Moment of Zero!
