GETCHA HULK CHUNKS! Three newsboys dig into the biggest comic news of exactly this moment! It’s new creative teams and number-ones galore as the allure of that big #1 looms large. Very soon, Wonder Woman and The Flash get big #800 anniversary issues followed by new #1 issues and wild new directions.
Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s 5-year Daredevil epic comes to a close as Chip hits the road across Canada – and maybe to a comic shop near you, if you live in Canada, and we do! The Hulk stops being a… spaceship?… and gets back to his roots as a big green monster man — and just in time for some manner of monster war! In the land of moving pictures, Batman: Caped Crusader lives on with a two-season Amazon Prime deal!
Hey wait, you forgot a number one! Steel (John Henry) and Steel (Natasha) return in Steelworks #1, written by none other than Michael Dorn, the voice of Steel in the ‘90s cartoon, and, y’know, Worf. So hot right now. You don’t see Shaq getting invited, do you? And speaking of not being invited: after getting Typhoid Married, Wilson “Big Willie” “The Kingpin” Fisk has found a loophole granting him a permanent Krakoan Honeymoon! Oh my, just imagine the zany misadventures to come every week at the Blob’s bar.
This week, we’re playing one of our favourites: Comic Book Cards Against Humanity! You know how this works: one of us reads a “call” card with a blank space on it, and the other two try to fill in the blank with the funniest thing we can using our “response” cards. And we wrote all the cards, so it’s going to be gross, because we’re gross, gross people. Enjoy, won’t you? Enjoy it in video mode, even! Bam!
Oh, and hey! Here’s our codes! Sign up for Massive Decks, and then put these codes in to use our cards!
RXQ4J, 1EO3K, 1248W, LYQRV, L6D3P
It’s episode 350! Time for Doritos! And Devito!
This week we’re short a host but we persevere to give you the mid grade quality podcast you expect and love!
We talk Thor and a new Thanos one shot, Loki season 2 possibilites, and Planet Hulk Worldbreaker in the newsy news!
Kyle does a hyper specific game of Character storm with Top 40 music and a Grant Morrisson twist. So…. drugs. That’s what that means.
And to top it off we do a power records listen! Our choice was Wonder Woman vs the War God! It’s Mars. Or was it Snickers? Listen to find out!
It’s LIGHTNING ROUND TIME!
A bevy of short topics this week such as the recent Marvel Banner of War Hulk/Thor battle (in which we discuss what Celestial bits are floating in space), Kyle runs a game of SUPERFIGHT where comic’s most powerful square off…. with guns? Bry challenges the boys to bring back cancelled animated comic shows and Merk runs a game for a multi company crossover… Jughead, Stardust and a Green Lantern ring, anyone? Which characters are dog people and which are cat people? We must answer this burning question! Battle of the Alfreds! And EVEN more in this efficiently packed episode!
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!
Are you hungry for ridiculous comic book food content? WELL…. you’ve come to the right place.
The boys deliver an all food episode that is, well, delicious.
From figuring out what the Flash eats to power that lean, mean flashing machine, to figuring out how the Thing eats and…. what happens….
Who’s the best X-Cook?
Bry gets very excited by getting to select his disgusting TMNT pizza of choice!
Superhero cookbooks! Wolverine in a diaper! Superman’s beef bourguignon!
All that food plus news of Jupiter’s Legacy being (kind of) cancelled, Hulk & Venom switcheroo, Flashpoint Keaton, Merk’s bush chicken story (it’s a Bonaduce special!) AND we answer a big serious question from a devoted fan….well…. Kyle’s daughter…. who doesn’t read comics…..and never listens to us…. but it’s a question!!
Join us for this X-tra gross episode….
Brought to you by the fantastic folks at Rose N’ Crantz Roasting company. They’re much classier than us.
The Hulk! AND spaghetti! In ONE EPISODE?!?! GADZOOKS!! This week has everything, from hearing Kyle pitch new hilarious Hulk comics as The Immortal Hulk comes to an end, to hearing each of us make pitches for more obscure/underused characters, and news like John Romita jr returning to Marvel and drawing Magneto (and train tracks!), A Dragon Ball movie, and hear us giggle with joy as we discuss MST3K getting crowdfunded for a new season!!! ALL that PLUS you get to hear Bry say “I apologize for not knowing Burt Reynolds was dead.” Top THAT, chuckles!!
Rambo and dead boyfriends! Wandavision is pretty great, amirite? This week we delve into the mysteries of episode 4 of that MCU show as well as exploring intercompany comic crossovers. What did we love the best? What disappointed us and crushed our comic souls? and then we EACH get to give the elevator pitch …. what company crossover would we want to see? All that plus Netflix Sandman casting, a trip back to the Snyder Castle and Mother Box Happy Meals…..Join us, won’t you?
This week the boys talk about projects mired in development hell. Films. Comics. Our lives in 2020. We talk about projects that made it out of a long battle to finally see the light, ones still fighting to be made and projects that came up, fell into a bog and will be found 1000 years from now perfectly preserved. That and we celebrate Kyle’s birthday by putting in comic book set ups and seeing how he does. Enter…. the Lees Paradox. All that and a ton of news….. and shirtless Nick Nolte as Namor…… you can hear his voice can’t you, Clarice. The garbled screeching of the Noltes……Join us won’t you?
It’s time to FOOM it up!! Yup! We’re talking about that ol’ space dragon monster, Fin Fang Foom! Each of the boys does their pitch of a Foom story to be told to take the Foom where the Foom has never gone before! All that AND we talk the ridiculousness of Superhero costumes. Who puts their initial on their chest AND their belt buckle? And is EVERYTHING unstable molecules? Plus a bevy of news from a Boys spinoff, Supergirl wrapping up, Hawkman casting in the Black Adam movie that no one knew was coming out or not, some Watchmen anger, and Bry intruduces ‘Drake-Watch’. Are you gonna go our way?
