227: Free With the Kisses!

It’s Valentine’s Day, Zero Issues style!! This week it’s short but sweet, as we dig deep into classic romance comics to perform a Dramatic Reading you… won’t…… forget. A dance couple in the big city! A smooth club owner with his eyes on the prize! A creep with a gullet full of chicken bones! And a big twist that adds a new element to the whole concept of reading comics out loud! Doesn’t that sound romantic!? (N… not really!)

192: Of Televisional Crime-Detecting Units & Radiophonic Thought-Recording Rays

Zounds! Once again we dig into the Fletcher Hanks Bible to perform a mind-bending dramatic reading from the adventures of the Super Wizard Stardust! This time, ol’ Dusty goes up against a mad scientist who plans to reverse the Earth’s gravity in a scheme to have all the world’s automobiles and ships to himself! (A description can’t do it justice, trust us.)

Also! In honour of Brightburn, we pitch some movie ideas that give a horror twist to other beloved superheroes! And in the news: which X-Men are dead now? (Or which AREN’T at this point?)

Oh, and more. So much more!

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!!

137: A Very Solemn Snoogans

Whatever happens in Madripoor stays in Madripoor! The boys once again welcome Ryan the TBay Movie Guy to talk SECRET IDENTITIES – the history of the alter ego, the heroes who use them, the ones who go public, the methods and effectiveness of hiding your masked self, the real-life celebrities who share a civilian name with superheroes, and more!

Also! Kyle guides us in a round of Six Degrees of Batman, we dig into news about Captain Marvel and Dragon Ball Super, and then perform another dynamic Dramatic Reading of the classic comic where Superman adopted Jimmy Olsen!
