It’s time to get silly! About being serious. This week, we take your non-nonsense, grim and dark, serious characters and turn them into something light-hearted, fun and zany! And then… we do the opposite!? Richie Rich gets spooky, kooky, and altogether ooky! Carnage becomes a little scamp in the Sunday funnies! Ben Grimm gets GRIM. Kraven the Hunter becomes Kraven the FUNter! And more pitches sure to drive any “too serious” fan over the edge… with laughter! (and hopefully not rage.)
In the warm-up, it’s a pitch for Capcom to resurrect the Marvel fighting game as a “Darkstalkers” style spin-off starring Dr. Strange, Scarlet Witch, and so many other Marvel magic characters! And such news: Bry gets manic about Michael Keaton getting manic! Merk gives ya all the Jack of Hearts developments your heart can handle! And Kyle has got a sweet tip on a modded Marvel vs. Capcom game that may just be perfect. Perfect… like this episode. (Nah, just kidding, but we hope you like it.)
This week, we’re tumbling out of bed and stumbling to the kitchen, pouring ourselves a cup of ambition, and yawning, stretching, and talking about super heroes with day jobs. From the ones with crappy jobs, like Hal Jordan selling toys door to door and Captain America being an artist for Marvel Comics pre-creators’ rights, to the ones we wish characters had, like Batman’s Discovery Channel hit, Keeping up with the Waynes, or Doctor Strange turning the Sanctum Sanctorum into a rooming house.
It even takes over our Warm Up, where we try to give jobs to a bunch of characters who don’t really have prescribed ones (spoiler: a lot of them just end up as bouncers at a strip club). And there’s news! You knew that! Get back to work!
It’s podcasting time, for real! This week, we’re talking about the never-meant-for-release-but-you-can-totally-find-it-on-YouTube Fantastic Four movie, from 1994! Marvel at the use of TMNT-level Thing anamatronics, be dumbfounded by the age gap between Reed and Sue, struggle in vain to understand what Doom is saying over the clacking of his metal manacles, and ignore The Jeweler! Ignore them!
Plus: news about Dark Horse, Spider-Verse, and McFarlane Toys, and a quiz all about unproduced unmovies! They were never made, and now they are un!
Are you hungry for ridiculous comic book food content? WELL…. you’ve come to the right place.
The boys deliver an all food episode that is, well, delicious.
From figuring out what the Flash eats to power that lean, mean flashing machine, to figuring out how the Thing eats and…. what happens….
Who’s the best X-Cook?
Bry gets very excited by getting to select his disgusting TMNT pizza of choice!
Superhero cookbooks! Wolverine in a diaper! Superman’s beef bourguignon!
All that food plus news of Jupiter’s Legacy being (kind of) cancelled, Hulk & Venom switcheroo, Flashpoint Keaton, Merk’s bush chicken story (it’s a Bonaduce special!) AND we answer a big serious question from a devoted fan….well…. Kyle’s daughter…. who doesn’t read comics…..and never listens to us…. but it’s a question!!
Join us for this X-tra gross episode….
Brought to you by the fantastic folks at Rose N’ Crantz Roasting company. They’re much classier than us.
It’s resurrection time!! This week we talk about the age ol’ comic traditions of coming back from the dead! Sometimes done well, and sometimes…..not. And sometimes it’s Aunt May. Plus a load of news from Predator cancellations, to the Marvel/Random house deal, the Black Widow announcement (mark) ruffling feathers, Raphael Grampa making a butt load of moolah, DC movies getting axed and the Black Adam film being announced…. again… All that and Bry talks about the trials and tribulations of collecting. Join us as we resurrect this podcast each week!
2020 is over, bay-bee! And to close out a gross year, let’s play a gross game: comic cards against humanity! And fair warning, this gets VERY raunchy very quickly. Not safe for work, or the kids, or anyone with their mind out of the gutter. Draw a card, and… LET’S GO! (And don’t forget to check out the video version!!)
This week we team up with the good people at Sleeping Giant Brewing Company (okay, we do that every episode) to talk about comic book team-ups! Archie Meets the Punisher, Challenge of the Headless Baseball Team, and Namor and Doom fight over who does the dishes.
