274: Several Issues Graphic Novel Podcast

Y’know, we as a podcast may have fallen victim to the super hero industrial complex. We used to talk about comics! This week we take a break from what’s going on in super hero books and TV shows and movies, and focus on some smaller stories, some very good graphic novels that we’ve ready recently.

Oh but before that, we cover Marvel movie and TV news that is mostly baseless rumours, and then talk about WandaVision for like fifteen minutes. Moderation!

273: Kraven the Deli Owner

QUITTERS!! The lot of ’em!!! That’s what superheroes are! And that’s what we’re talking about this week. Can you think of a hero that hasn’t, even for just a short bit, called it quits? It’s a small list. From Tony Stark and the sauce, Daredevil and his law career, Wonder Woman getting sick of life off Paradise Island, to Spidey and…. well…. every five minutes, heroes love to quit. We delve deep. Who quit and became a blind bartender? Who quit and became Black Beard? And so many more. Plus we talk news! There are comic cons going on soon….. uh….. ok. Black Panther delays. Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth show. And Merk delves into manga (a new thing for him) in a ‘read this now’. So don’t quit now! You’re almost there! Sit back, relax, click that button and listen to Kraven the Deli Owner serve up a lil’ bite of deligh …. ah… quit it.

249: Worf Tonight, The Hawkeye App, Mom Jeans and Other News

Let’s be honest. It’s been a weird few months. We’re all feeling it. Us too at the podcast. It’s been so strange that for the past few months we’ve barely touched on one of the cornerstones of the podcast…. COMIC NEWS!!! So this week we’re diving all in to the deep end of the news pool! Marvel events! The Boys! Witcher! Hawkeye (his show and his app)! Marauder name change! Star Trek! Worf’s Talk Show! Neil Gaiman! Dynamite! Tom King & Jae Lee! Zack Snyder and Justicecon! New Mutants! Helstrom…. or is it Hellstorm? Daredevil’s Loeb! Rob Liefeld! Mom Jeans! And SO MUCH MORE!! We’re going full comic news cable channel!

226: I Shall Become a Circus

Cue up Entrance of the Gladiators, because we’re off to the circus this week! Th…that’s what the circus song is called. Kind of a badass name for what is essentially Boy, Clowns are Goofy: The Song. Anyway, yeah, circus! From the Flying Graysons to the Circus of Crime (to Golden Age superhero costumes being inspired by circus strongmen, which we don’t really talk about, whoops), comics and circuses have a long, shared history. A history that we mock.

Plus: DMZ, Bloodshot, and more in the News! A brand new card-based Warmup that you’ll love! And many, many instances of Bry saying “daddy.”

196: Dial B for Blister

Canada Day approaches! And to celebrate we’re talking all about superheroes who exhibit the most important Canadian quality: a thin veneer of politeness! (And even that’s asking a lot of these guys, yeesh.) What characters and creators are sorry? And who should be? Oh, you’re gonna find out, friends. If you want to. Sorry to assume!

But that’s not all! We’ve got just way too much MCU news, rumours, and wild speculation. And we take a trip to the Blister Zone in another Character Storm! …ew.

150: And That’s the Last Scene

Hey hey! This week we were in a big rush to head off and dominate a trivia night (we…um, did okay), so we ended up doing a smaller-than-average episode. And so, just like some of your favourite cancelled or renewed TV shows, we limited this one to half an hour, and also spent a bunch of time on plot threads that never resolve! This week: all TV (and a little movies), all the time!

Episode 62: Daredevil – It’s Getting a Li’l Foggy in Here

Daredevil Season 2 is on deck and ready for dissection! Punisher, Elektra, Stick, Branch, Hand, Foot and superfluous third nipple all make an appearance. Spoiler alertage! Kyle also puts us through the paces with a quick warm-up quiz and Merk leads a dramatic reading of the Fiddler working for Darkseid and the time when Wonder Woman went all Jesus-y on New Genesis. All that, plus Fred Armisen!

Episode 39: Daredevil – The Horniest Man in New York

Hey, you guys like Daredevil? We sure do! We like gritty Daredevil, we like swashbuckling Daredevil, we like Affleck Daredevil, even… We like ’em all! Except Shadowland, Shadowland was dumb. Let’s chat about this fella!

Oh, and hey! Zero Issues is now one year old! It can walk, a little, and is real close to saying its first word. My guess for what that word will be: neeeeeerds.

Episode 12: Street Level – Does The Kingpin have Diabetes?

We’re taking it back to the streets this week, and that means Daredevil, Moon Knight, and other characters that are vaguely reminiscent of Batman! Plus, a heartfelt plea to DC Comics to stop being bad.
