319: 400 Heads in a Bag

Three grown men talking about action figures, that’s what audiences crave, right? Because that’s what we’re doing this week! We lament over the loss of REAL Hulk Hands, and come up with some great new toys for kids of all ages, from 18 to 118!

But first: news about Dark Horse taking over Star Wars, Danny Devito taking on Penguin writing duties, and JK Simmons taking over the world. And then, a very special quiz from our very special birthday boy, Bry!

317: Butterscotch Wolverine Hawkeye

It’s HAWKEYE DAY!!!
Or Toga Hawkeye day.
Or Butterscotch Wolverine Hawkeye day.
Whatever. It’s Clint Barton Day (And Kate Bishop!). We’re celebrating the release of the Disney+ MCU Hawkeye series by talkin’ Hawkeye! The good, the bad, and the horrible (costumes in particular). We’re talking arrows, Avengers, West Coast Avengers, Thunderbolts and that time he was head of security for Cross Technological Enterprises.
We talk about Clint being the dick of the team but somehow still lovable. The infamous Fraction/Aja run.
And fart arrows. Yea. We go there.
All that and lots of news about Sexy Rudd, a new Shazam comic and Superman becoming Captain Britain!
And celery day. We’re still talking about celery day.

316: Celery Day Stalkslam

For thousands of years, the debate has raged: Christmas? Halloween? Which is the supreme holiday? Today we solve this decisively, once and for all, ion the typical manner of making a bunch of characters, each representing one of the two holidays, fight!

But first! We’ve got more “news” about the Ayer Cut, as well as the Diamond Distribution Hack and a new comic-based cartoon that just came out! Plus, we’re covering all of the Disney+ Day Marvel stuff in the Warmup!

311: Man Man and Bat Bat

It’s the spooky month and we’re feelin’ like it’s time for a little power records! Y’know, those amazing comics on a 45 record from the 70’s?
Time for MAN-BAT! Or is it MAN-MAN? Or BAT-BAT? Listen and (probably don’t) find out!
So much action! So much weird dialogue!
Hear the origin of Man-Bat and how horrible he is to his wife.
Hear about the puppy gang and our short obsession with RC Cola.
And our Lil’ Zero spinoff series!
This and so much more (well, not THAT much more. It’s a short episode.)
Join us, won’t you?

308: Magneto of Green Gables

It’s a big election week this week in ol’ Canada, so the boys have decided to talk politics! No! Come back! It’s us! We’re ridiculous about it and it all involves comic books!
How would Batman vote?
What comic characters would take over & run a small eastern block nation?
And we discuss Magneto taking Prince Edward Island for his own.
This and SO MUCH MORE!!! Really… there’s a lot.
We warm up with a new game of ‘Explain this to me’ where Merk asks the others to explain things they know little (or nothing) about.
And of course the news! Mignola returns! Marvel Action Line does not!
Captain Krakoa…. is a thing. A Twisted Metal tv show is on the way! And Hit Monkey is actually going to happen!
So take some ‘Mackie Time’ and hang with us for a bit.
