The lightning strikes once again! Last week was a longer episode, so this week it’s all random rapid-fire topics! We’re pit in a fight-inventing grudgematch between Prince Robot IV and Wolfsbane, under caaa-razy circumstances, and we decide the victor! We recast “The Eternals” with the great comedy actors of literally any era! Batman: Soul of the Dragon is a movie we think you should watch… now! Bry quizzes us with which Spider-Verse variants are real or fake! Kyle gets in on the quiz game as we have to guess if a list of characters were alive or dead in the year 2000! And then Merk steals the quizmaster crown to test our knowledge about what bizarre Defenders villains existed or not! All this and… wait, no, that’s it. That’s the show. It’s plenty of show!
We haven’t seen Shang-Chi yet, so instead we’re doing another exciting LIGHTNING ROUND! Join us for so many mini-topics you’re guaranteed* to find something you love! Comic characters hosting podcasts! A quiz about quizzes! New kid sidekicks for Wolverine! New “Batman ’89” style comics based on long-dead comic movies! A remote-recorded version of a 1991 Marvel Trading Card game! A “Read This Now” profile on “Memetic” by James Tynion IV, Eryk Donovan and Adam Guzowski! Collection treasures that we regret selling or losing! And an all-new segment about comic characters’ kinks! We really ended the episode with that one! Listen, we can prove it!!
It’s a Lightning Round episode, so you know what that means: nearly a dozen short and weird topics. We’ve got new segments like Crossfit This In and Deep Cuts, attempts at serious discussion, and a full list of the Seven Things Guaranteed to Sell a Comic!
Kramabadoom!!! This week’s a Lightning Round episode, and you know what that means: serious discussion about what kind of Green Goblin knockoff we’d like to be, what DC comic is best suited to feature Gamera, and wondering aloud if anyone actually enjoys knowing everything there is to know about Star Wars. All that and the debut of Canada’s yum-diddly-scrumpious super hero!
Lightning Round! Y’all know what this means: we’re pingponging through topics like a trio of Speedballs. Two quizzes, a marry-screw-kill, talking Matt Reeves’ The Batman villains, all the Stephen Dorff news you can handle, toy-talk, and even some sound effects provided by a toy laser gun that Merk got for Christmas. This episode literally has everything.
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!
Who’s ready for a lightning round!? This week we answer the questions no one else dares to ask! What lesser-known online niche show should you watch? If you had to permanently kill a character at Marvel and DC, who would it be, and why? What non-Batman, non-Superman comic story would you adapt for an animated movie, and who would you cast? What characters would merge in a 2019 version of Amalgam Comics? And what OTHER character would you give the Spider-Verse treatment to?
…I mean, those are great questions, but listen to what WE’D do!
Christmas day is almost here, so it’s time to celebrate with a LIGHTNING ROUND in your stocking! (You… you heard us!)
Join us on a fast-paced, maaaybe raunchier-than-usual mad journey as we pitch comic holiday specials (including the returns of Jeremy Piven Hawkeye and Scott Bakula Deadman), come up with new toy lines in a Character Storm, compete in a holiday comics quiz, decide which heroes and villains believe in the War on Christmas, and perform a Dramatic Reading of the time the Avengers went up against SANTRON! Oh, and more. So much more!
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!
