This week, we’re playing one of our favourites: Comic Book Cards Against Humanity! You know how this works: one of us reads a “call” card with a blank space on it, and the other two try to fill in the blank with the funniest thing we can using our “response” cards. And we wrote all the cards, so it’s going to be gross, because we’re gross, gross people. Enjoy, won’t you? Enjoy it in video mode, even! Bam!
Oh, and hey! Here’s our codes! Sign up for Massive Decks, and then put these codes in to use our cards!
RXQ4J, 1EO3K, 1248W, LYQRV, L6D3P
It’s episode 350! Time for Doritos! And Devito!
This week we’re short a host but we persevere to give you the mid grade quality podcast you expect and love!
We talk Thor and a new Thanos one shot, Loki season 2 possibilites, and Planet Hulk Worldbreaker in the newsy news!
Kyle does a hyper specific game of Character storm with Top 40 music and a Grant Morrisson twist. So…. drugs. That’s what that means.
And to top it off we do a power records listen! Our choice was Wonder Woman vs the War God! It’s Mars. Or was it Snickers? Listen to find out!
Once again, we are settling age old comic book debates this week. Is The Punisher a villain? What’s better, Kirby’s Marvel work or his DC work? Has Shazam always just been a Superman ripoff? Those questions and exactly three others will be answered.
Plus! We rank the various Sinster Six…es that have existed to find who among them is the most sinister, cover the ongoing Joe Bennett scandal, and rejoice that Gwensborn isn’t canon anymore.
Starfox. Starfox! STARFOX! (Not that one.) Let’s not mince words: Eros the Eternal, Avenger, brother of Thanos, and defendant of lawsuits, is what you could call… problematic. “The power to stimulate the pleasure centre of the brain” maybe doesn’t play so well in 2020. So it’s up to us to fix him! We re-evaluate, refresh, re-cast, and even fully reboot the Titan known as Starfox to tell some stories that maybe won’t make you feel deeply uncomfortable!
But there’s more! Batman takes the stage – ninja style! Nathan Fillion’s arms may or may not fall off, boy! Michael Golden’s Micronauts gets a very macro release! And Merk quizzes Bry & Kyle on their ludicrous Marvel acronyms!
2019 sure has been a year… and continues to be, as a whole slew of comic and pop-culture news hits right before the end! So to get it all out of our systems, it’s an all-news episode!! Marvel Studios consumes Marvel Television! Orlando Jones is fired from “American Gods”! Eastman & Laird reunite! Donald Trump goes full Thanos (well… more than usual)! Plus lots of movie and television and, whoa, even comic announcements!? Neat!! Join us as we react to and comment on all this… and more!!
Betty vs. Veronica? Star Trek vs. Star Wars? Batman vs. Literally Anyone? Fans have debated these questions for decades, and finally, FINALLY, we settle ten of the biggest arguments in fandom once or for all! (And we mean it! No more debating after this!)
Also! Merk recommends three indie comics you should check out: Frankenstein: A World of Gods and Monsters, Eternal, and Futility! Kyle spotlights something special from Deadpool 2! And Bry and the boys dig into some news items involving Stan Lee, Marvel’s commitment to diversity, and the future of The Walking Dead!
We’re going to spoil you. SPOILERS!!! We’re talking Infinity Warring Gauntlet Avengers thing! We’re talking skateboards, how Thanos wetting the bed is a sing of being a psychopath, just a little CLR and water will get out that cosmic grime and SO MUCH MORE!!!
Whoa! Do we have a show for you this week!?! Yea. We do actually. And it’s pretty magical! We’ve got tons of movie news from Gambit, New Mutants, Dark Phoenix, Rom and a bizarre bit from the Smallville files! Then Bry crushes us with a Thanos quiz (he coulda been a chill Titan) before we launch into our main topic of TV pitches! With the launch of Krypton (ha! Launch!) we make our own offshoot pitches. Who wants to see a sexy teen Pop Tate? Casper, pre-death? Zenn-la, pre-Galactus? Julibee 90210 (does a california mall babe love chili fries?)? Tales of the Mojoverse? Magic Cheers? And a bunch more (seriously, we’re a goldmine, Netflix. We should be showrunners). And we end with Kyle taking us through a Marvel trading card, hulky smashy smashy game! Tune in blue trelievers!
Today is storytime! The boys create spellbinding stories linking the unlinkable, saying the unthinkable, skating the unrinkable! It’s the Connections Game! Hear stories linking Scooby Doo to HP Lovecraft to Mad Max! Roger the Humunculus to Shazam and a mother box! And SO MUCH MORE! All that AND a SUPER quiz by Bry Bry! And have you ever thought about how many times someone was just punched into space in the comics? Us too….. well, NOW we have. All that plus a sack o’ news! Saddle up kids! Time for storytime! Oh and happy Valentines Day. Whatever.
A new year has arrived, landed upon our doorstep like a much needed word of encouragement after a year of wtf moments. For the first episode of 2018 we do a year in review….we have to…. just to make sense of it all. The Marvel PR nightmare that was 2017 obviously dominates the look back but we also talk comics we enjoyed and then turn our gaze ever forward….. 2018, what will you bring? There is light on the horizon, starting with Snagglepuss. We also talk Diamond distribution. What will the year bring for the monopoly? And personal creations… what are Bry, Kyle & Merk up to comic wise? All that plus- Kyle explores what superheroes do to make ends meet. Doc Oc’s Otto shop? And Bry has an episode of League of Baldos with our first bald woman entry!! And no, it’s not that woman from the Star Trek film. Join us!!!
