We made it! 2022! So what do we need to talk about?

A movie from last year, of course.

SPIDER-MAN:NO WAY JOSE…er….HOME

Spoiler alert, we’re diving head first and full on into this jam packed jammy movie. From fan service to brick catcher man, from a bevy of villains to Sad Happy to plot holes and things that fill em…. we’re on it.
Join Daddy Bry, Future Kyle and plain ol’ Merk for ‘The Wizard Did It!’
….. because he did.

318: At the Speed of Snowplow!

Winter in comic books is kinda… weird, right? Like it rarely happens, and when it does it always seems to be over after a single issue or story-arc. And as semi-northern Canadians, we have a podcast episode to pick with that! But as semi-northern Canadians, we also appreciate it whenever it happens! So join us on a wintery journey through the snow-filled superhero comics that stuck with us (we’ve got TMNT *and* X-Men!), the inadequacies of superhero costumes in winter (tell us, HOW do Spider-Man’s lenses not constantly fog up when he’s wearing a mask?), and we pitch some new comic story ideas to make up for an otherwise lack of winter realism. Plus: Hulk in a snowsuit!! That sounds brrrrr– uh, great!

But… what’s this!? We give wintertime “normal jobs” to three random comic characters: Moon Knight vs. Hockey Parents! Quicksilver turns into a tow truck… Turbo Teen style, even! Fantomah helps (and causes) icy car accidents! And we talk about all the wildest news, from an abruptly-cancelled Luke Cage miniseries, a new comic about Starship Hulk, and Saga’s live-action debut!

308: Magneto of Green Gables

It’s a big election week this week in ol’ Canada, so the boys have decided to talk politics! No! Come back! It’s us! We’re ridiculous about it and it all involves comic books!
How would Batman vote?
What comic characters would take over & run a small eastern block nation?
And we discuss Magneto taking Prince Edward Island for his own.
This and SO MUCH MORE!!! Really… there’s a lot.
We warm up with a new game of ‘Explain this to me’ where Merk asks the others to explain things they know little (or nothing) about.
And of course the news! Mignola returns! Marvel Action Line does not!
Captain Krakoa…. is a thing. A Twisted Metal tv show is on the way! And Hit Monkey is actually going to happen!
So take some ‘Mackie Time’ and hang with us for a bit.

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.
