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!

340: Destination Moon Knight

He is the terror that flaps in the night! But, like, a very well-lit night! He is Moon Knight, and this week, we’re talking about his TV show! We have you a week, and now we’re going to spoil the whole dang thing. You have been awooga-warned.

But first, we want to talk about comic book artist and writer George Perez, who we sadly lost this past week. George was absolutely one of the nicest guys in comics, and his work shaped many comic book readers’ childhoods.

329: The Sky is the Limit

Feeling angelic? Well, even if you don’t, we’ll make you feel like you’ve got wings! …. that was cheesy….. But seriously, we’re fixing characters this week! And our target is the ever flyin’ X-Man ANGEL! He’s been a character that, as we say right at the start, has often been the blandest of the X-Men. Or at least never really had more than a storyline or two where they took off as a character. We give you three different directions for the ANGEL…. the angelic mutant saviour, the multiple Angel angle, and the Defending Champion!
All that plus Merk gives you a 2 comic book tv shows…. one to avoid, and one to watch! Will you agree?
And news! Justice League Incarnate changes the face of a number of DC’s events from the past 40 years, Tony Stark pops the question, and DC Dinosaurs!! AND… AND…. Chanum Tattings.
Oh boyo boy! You don’t wanna miss this one. Chanum Taters. Er. Tattings. Whatever. It’ll make sense. See you there!
