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.

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!)

193: Keith David as Galactus – I want Keith David Wearing a Helmet

It’s a LIGHTNING ROUND episode! What does that mean? That means we have a number of quick short topics & games & shenanigans that we barrel through, and this week we do that with a returning guest, Mr Ryan Mackett, artist, movie reviewer, and lover of superman and sharks (check out his stuff here!) ! What topics & games you ask? As Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider, what radioactive animal bites you, and what happens? What character would you like to write a character defining arc for ( a la Grant Morrisson X-Men)? We do a crazy round of fantasy casting actors into dream (and at times nightmare) roles in comicdom. All that and a game of 1991 Marvel Trading Cards-a card is picked and you have to argue a ridiculous viewpoint for that character, ie-Why would Wonder Man make an amazing US President? All that and a bag o’ chips, or is it just a bag o’ chips? Listen and decide, shrewd believers!
