This week’s episode was all about Black Widow and Loki, and had huge spoilers for both, but then a fear demon showed up, and now it’s all about retcons! From Puck originally being 6’6″, to Hal Jordan not really being a dick after all, to Norman Osborn and Gwen Stacy getting all Brazzersy, sometimes comic creators make some very, hmm, interesting choices. So we gripe about them!
Also, more news than you can handle; and in the Warmup, we try to figure out where to put all of these comics before they trap us like Principal Skinner in the classic Simpsons episode “Bart the Murderer”.
It’s just past Canada Day! It’s the Fourth of July! Tensions are rising on the Canada-US border! So for three Canadian comic fans and creators… what does this mean!? This week we talk all about the impact of an increasing trade war and border-security squabble on our favourite fictional Canadian-Americans, and poke a little good-natured (ha ha, good natured, we promise) fun at our national rivalries! Alpha Flight ruuuules!!!
Also: So much news! Bry pits Kyle against Merk in a Canada vs. USA comic quiz! And Merk tells a spooooooky story about he and C.G. Rackham’s travel to a haunted Ontario comic-con!
Canada and comics! Two topics the Zero Issues boys are especially qualified to discuss. This week’s episode is about Canadian comic series, characters, and creators! We’re talking about all your favourites, like Red Ketchup, the Polka-Dot Pirate, Nelvana of the Northern Lights, Captain Newfoundland, Purple Rider, and of course… Puck! Pour yourself a glass of Ontario craft beer and join us for an in-depth and funny chat about all things Canadiana in comics! And only like 7 weeks too late for Canada Day!
