355: Sizzle War

The mutants are a-comin’! But how? How is Marvel going to fit a whole species into their already bloated slate of movies, TV shows, and other assorted bric-a-brac? That’s what we aim to figure out, this week!

But first: we’ve got a heaping helping of Constantine and Warner Bros Discovery news, the first on Paul Levitz and Alan Davis’s upcoming Avengers book, and we get in depth with Merk’s own comic-skewed version of the Pivot Questionnare from Inside the Actors Studio. All that and Merk being so very, very wrong about steak sauce!

Classic Zero Issues 3: Free with the Kisses

We’re still on vacation! This week we’re in freaking ATLANTIS!!!
So while we drown, you get to listen to Merk’s pick for a CLASSIC ZERO ISSUES episode….. Free with the Kisses….. that’s the name of it. Free with the Kisses. Not an offer. Well… we’ll think about it.
Here’s the original post….
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!)

347: Click This! You’ll Hate It!

It’s new comic day, so therefore it’s new podcast day too!!
And this week we’re talking directors. Film directors. And specifically film directors that do NOT like comic book films (for a variety of reasons). We discuss that a bit but then decide which comic book films those directors should do!…. if we could make them.
But first we start with a smorgasbord of CBR like article titles…. and we MAY go a little overboard.
All that and news, news, news! Controversy! Controversy! Controversy! From Webtoons ads to Ezra Miller comic cover variants to Miles of Thor… we gots it!

346: QuicksilvEST!

Blue streak speeds by, it’s just Quicksilver!
Kind of a rude guy, that’s just Quicksilver!
Pietro, yeah he’s pretty fast
But also, he’s a total ass
Quicksilver, this week we try to fix him up!

Also, to celebrate the summer, Bry takes us back in time to go over the history of the comic book swimsuit issue!

Plus a whole bunch of news, including a challenge to Chip Zdarsky to come on the show and explain why he (didn’t really) steal Bry’s idea (I’m sure that didn’t happen) to turn the Penguin into an ecoterrorist (Chip really it’s cool this isn’t libel)!

345: I Would Like to Taste the Horsey Sauce

The Thunderbolts are ready to strike the MCU! A director has been hired, and that means it’s time to wildly speculate about who and what the team of villains-turned-heroes will be when they hit the big screen! To the point that we almost pitch a story, including a topical introduction to a certain Fantastic villain? And perhaps even a Merc with a mouth?? But anyway: What version of the comic will it look to adapt? Which MCU villains will make the cut? Will Zemo keep the purple balaclava or will he don the weird silver pointy mask of Citizen V? And just imagine: Werner Herzog as Baron Zemo Sr.!

And what news! The Boys is coming back for a 4th season, and Jensen Ackles opens up about show creator Eric Kripke’s diabolical methods! TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is out literally tomorrow, with some excessive special editions coming in the probably distant future! Joe Quesada is retiring from Marvel after 20+ years in charge! And a a chance glimpse of “Ugly Namor” has us chatting about when superheroes weren’t all Hollywood hot & fit and whether they even should be! Maybe some comic podcast hosts could be superheroes! MAYBE!
