262: Draclactus OR GaDractus OR Galacula

Boo! Boooooooooo! Boooooo!

This week, we’re talking about monsters, and how they seem to end up in mainstream superhero books pretty dang often. Werewolf By Night, Cap Wolf, that time The Living Mummy was part of a super hero team…there’s a precedent!

But first, we cover the return of Jared Leto’s Joker, Spider-Man 3 rumours, and more in the News, and we try to debate who’s better, Dracula or Dracula, in the Warmup!

(Boo!)

242: It Ends with Rick Jones Holding a Snowglobe

You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts. This week, we dedicate time to talking about the crazy, the absurd, and the just plain chemically imbalanced. How messed up is The Hulk these days (very), is The Tick legally insane (yep), and is Doctor Strange secretly delusional (it depends)?

All that and hot Jackpot (who?) and Sandman news, and we pit some superheroes against the apocalypse in the Warm Up!

172: Chip Sahoyski

Krakakoom!

This week we go all over the place with a Lightning Round! What should Superman’s new power be? What comic book should have an awesome open world game? How much Batdick is too much Batdick? These questions and many more definitively answered in this “we recorded it a month ago so it isn’t necessarily current” episode!

159: The Eye of Mike Del Mundo

 

This week, we’re trying our darnedest to make Doctor Druid into an interesting character. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “who?”, but we cover that as well. Everything from Super Frasier to I-Know-I’m-Not-Doctor-Strange-But-Neither-Are-You to a heavy, solemn series about fathers, sons, and the real magic that makes a family.

Plus Bry and Kyle interrupt Merk a bunch and he tries not to get mad. He tries.

157: I Don’t Need Luck, I Eat Nuts

This week we pay tribute to the life and career of Steve Ditko! From the art, stories, and characters that helped shape comics, to his long and varied history in the industry, the wide-ranging influences he left, and the personal and political philosophy he lived and created by.

Also: We blast through a rapid-fire news segment, do a quiz about what ridiculous events did and didn’t cause Bill Bixby’s David Banner to transform into the Hulk, and perform a Dramatic Reading of the first-ever appearance of Squirrel Girl! A is A, and Zero Issues is Zero Issues!!

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.

Episode 89: Like a Fruitopia Commercial, but All Ditkos

In honour of Steve Ditko’s recent 89th birthday, and the release of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in theatres, it’s time to talk all things Ditko: the work, characters, legacy, philosophy, and the recent projects of the famously reclusive comics legend! We have an objectively great time! Also: we talk about the Doctor Strange movies — that’s right, movies! — and give Wong some long-overdue respect.

2015 is DEAD! So the boys look forward to 2016 for comics, movies and the podcast. What do we want to see? Less amazing stuff… so our wallets don’t explode? We tangent (us? REALLY?) into Matt Fraction comics, The Defenders, gripes about DC Comics, shesmadeofspiders.com, a Ditko fist-bump for Dr Strange, and what each of us have in the works for 2016! Announcements and projects abound!!

Advent Calendar 25: Fireside Chat

We’ve reached the end of the Advent Calendar! It’s Christmas Day, and after a month of daily episodes, it’s time to relax by the Darth Vader Yule Log and have a nice fireside chat. There’s no plan, no format, just a natural conversation covering comics TV series, the Doctor Strange movie, the new Scarlet Witch comic, The Goddamned, The Massive and Ninth Wave, and even a text battle with Kyle’s daughter!
