253: Peril at Castle Snyder

We really meant for this episode to be all about Mike Mignola, we did! But then Bry and Kyle were told of a secret screening of the Snyder Cut that was happening out at a private country estate, and… no wait, that’s the Chooses the Doozes story/game that Merk puts his cohosts in this week! What mysteries will BryKy oncover? What traps has Merk laid in waiting for them? What is Gal Gadot’s speaking voice? All that and also some news, this week!

252: A Guy Who Knows Karate VS Doctor Octopus

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! It’s that time once again! August Audness as we call it, where we pick 8 comic characters and put them through a round robin tournament to name a champion! Some are pretty tough calls and it takes all our combined comic nerd power to make the call! And then there’s the moment where ‘Cap just wangs it’….. it happened. Also this week, Bry is ecstatic doing a ‘Read This Now’, talking about Boom Studio’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mini series. And news, news, news! Big news this week as the ‘bloodbath’ layoffs at Warner Media blindside so many. And IDW’s bizarre promotion, administrative leave and firing of a publisher all within a few weeks. All that and More!!!

234: The Shredder’s a Real Blanche

30 years ago, the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie was unleashed on the world! To comic fans of a, uh, certain age, this movie was a definitive cinema experience. But a lifetime later, how does it hold up? We discuss the legacy of this indie comics classic, compare it to the TMNT’s later adaptations, discuss its standing amongst the incredible growth of comic movies since, talk about our favourite moments, the bodacious cast, those Henson Company animatronic suits, a bunch of production trivia and goofs, little-known deleted scenes, and SO much more. It’s… Bossanova? …Chevy Nova? (Excellent!!)

Get your dose of Turtle Power in a very special Z-E-R-O ISSUES PODCAST!

219: A Pretty Bitchin’ Cape

Rivalries!!! This week we settle those age old questions; Who ultimately wins the Thing vs Hulk battle? Captain America-Sweet Pirate Boots or Military gear? What does the S on Jughead’s Shirt stand for? Terrance Howard vs Don Cheadle? Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter? Who’s the best Turtle? Which Spidey actor would win in an actual fight- Holland, Maguire or Garfield? Those disputes and more solved… FOREVER. All that and Kyle runs a What if warm up which ends up with us pitching a Wolverine/Dracula odd couple sitcom story…. that is pretty fantastic. And news! Sex Criminals! Robert Pattinson! Black Adam! The Rock! Flash! And lots more. Join us won’t you….

211: Fluff Me

This is the end, beautiful friends…. for these unfortunate characters! This week we pitch endings in the spirit of several Marvel titles that tell the last story of that character. However we don’t know which characters until the last second so we’re making up their endings on the fly!! How does Machine Man go offline? How does Angel fall to earth? How does Spidey sputter? How does Blade bite it? That plus a House of X game, witness (with your ears) the origin of JIMBERJACK, get a rundown of some Marvel NYCC news, Joker movie first weekend numbers, and a bizarre, rambling open that even we don’t understand how we went from Namorita to ‘what is a casserole’? Join us, won’t you? And please bring your favourite casserole.

191: You Need a Team Goth

Remember when Cyborg suddenly became one of the big leaguers in the Justice League? Cream of the crop? Top of the hill? Next gen in the old leaguers club? It worked. He’s one of … them… now. Amongst the legends. Well, this week we ponder other characters making that leap into the big leagues. Each of us pitching a different hero. Who will it be? Will you agree? Disagree? Have we gone mad? Listen to find out! That and we talk about a new little gem of an animated film that has bats and turtles all over it! All that and more! Join us, won’t you? PS Bry Hates Arrow.

145: Magic Cheers

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!

It’s Bry’s birthday, so we’re marking the occasion by letting him finally do the episode he’s been waiting all year to do: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

What has made what started as a black and white indie book drawn by two guys parodying Daredevil into a global franchise that’s been going strong for thirty years? And really, which one is Bry’s favourite? All this and more on today’s Zero Issues Advent Calendar!
