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!
