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!
Rambo and dead boyfriends! Wandavision is pretty great, amirite? This week we delve into the mysteries of episode 4 of that MCU show as well as exploring intercompany comic crossovers. What did we love the best? What disappointed us and crushed our comic souls? and then we EACH get to give the elevator pitch …. what company crossover would we want to see? All that plus Netflix Sandman casting, a trip back to the Snyder Castle and Mother Box Happy Meals…..Join us, won’t you?
QUITTERS!! The lot of ’em!!! That’s what superheroes are! And that’s what we’re talking about this week. Can you think of a hero that hasn’t, even for just a short bit, called it quits? It’s a small list. From Tony Stark and the sauce, Daredevil and his law career, Wonder Woman getting sick of life off Paradise Island, to Spidey and…. well…. every five minutes, heroes love to quit. We delve deep. Who quit and became a blind bartender? Who quit and became Black Beard? And so many more. Plus we talk news! There are comic cons going on soon….. uh….. ok. Black Panther delays. Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth show. And Merk delves into manga (a new thing for him) in a ‘read this now’. So don’t quit now! You’re almost there! Sit back, relax, click that button and listen to Kraven the Deli Owner serve up a lil’ bite of deligh …. ah… quit it.
Well Disney dropped a BOMBSHELL the other day, announcing their upcoming plans for all of their properties for the next bazillion years at their investors conference! We of course are focusing on the MARVEL next phase announcements! SO MANY!!! Sure we knew about a lot of this, upcoming films & series, but there were A LOT of reveals of tidbits, whether it be casting news (she hulk, Ms Marvel, Hawkeye and beyond) or brand new announcements we had no clue about (FF, Secret Avengers, Ironheart, Armor Wars….). Not to mention the TRAILERS! So many little bits & hints unleashed….. and we are giddy as 3 school girls! Join us as we break it down for you and explore the MARVELous things on the horizon.
It’s time for another exciting, lumberjack filled, rocket levering, punchin’ and jabberjawin’ dramatic read with Big Red McLane-King of the Northwoods!! From the bizarre mind of Fletcher Hanks, we take you into the northwoods with our dramatic radio play like skills! This week it’s the villainy of ‘The Monk’ as he, for some absolutely unknown reason, kidnaps lumberjacks to force them into suicidal, experimental rocket missions! Yup. Need a rocket to blow up right? Get a lumberjack! Join us for the hilarity.
Another week, another fun podcast! This week the boys are talking about offshoot characters. Characters like Thunderstrike, Great Grandma Thunderstrike, Strange Visitor, Superboy X (or whatever it was), Slingers, Young Avengers and so many more. We even make up our own ones…. which leads to the uncomfortable title of the episode…. Wonder Man, we’re sorry. All that and a read this now! Maestro! And a quiz! And learn about Kyle’s offshoot character!
This week the boys talk about projects mired in development hell. Films. Comics. Our lives in 2020. We talk about projects that made it out of a long battle to finally see the light, ones still fighting to be made and projects that came up, fell into a bog and will be found 1000 years from now perfectly preserved. That and we celebrate Kyle’s birthday by putting in comic book set ups and seeing how he does. Enter…. the Lees Paradox. All that and a ton of news….. and shirtless Nick Nolte as Namor…… you can hear his voice can’t you, Clarice. The garbled screeching of the Noltes……Join us won’t you?
It’s time to FOOM it up!! Yup! We’re talking about that ol’ space dragon monster, Fin Fang Foom! Each of the boys does their pitch of a Foom story to be told to take the Foom where the Foom has never gone before! All that AND we talk the ridiculousness of Superhero costumes. Who puts their initial on their chest AND their belt buckle? And is EVERYTHING unstable molecules? Plus a bevy of news from a Boys spinoff, Supergirl wrapping up, Hawkman casting in the Black Adam movie that no one knew was coming out or not, some Watchmen anger, and Bry intruduces ‘Drake-Watch’. Are you gonna go our way?
Let’s smash some super heroes into sitcom archetypes! Doctor Doom as Victor (Beeektor), Reed’s wacky cousin from Latveria, Marvel Knight Court, Beast and Wonder Man as two swingin’ single dudes in da big city, and many, many more.
Also: news! Hot news. More Snyder, Nick Fury TV stuff, and a Warmup where Kyle just talks about a completely different podcast!
(Sorry, we never do an X-Men/Community mashup. We’ve probably already done that, knowing Kyle and Bry. But sheeeesh, Jim Rash in a hoverchair.)
It’s DRAMATIC READ time once again as we wrap ourselves in the warm, strange blanket that is Fletcher Hanks and his gigantic hero STARDUST the SUPER WIZARD!!!! Follow along as Stardust crushes people’s torsos with one hand! Avoids a dangerous glue trap! And meet the most dangerous villain you’ve never heard of RIP-THE-BLOOD!! I swear…. we didn’t make this up. This is an actual story. And a bonus…. we have a companion video for this episode so you can WATCH and follow along! You can SEE Fletcher Hanks’ crazy creations and watch all of us busting a gut laughing! Find us under ‘Zero Issues’ on the youtubes!
