WOW!! 300 episodes!! It’s a big moment for these three little nerd boys, so to celebrate talking about comics for 300 maniacal podcast episodes, we do something a little different and ply deep into each other’s psyches with a list of questions….. to discover just how geeky we are. So 5 questions each from the three of us and then we put the call out…. ‘Ask us anything! Give us your queries!’…. and BOY, DID YOU!!! And we answered ALL OF THEM!!!! Plus: if you sent in a question, you were entered to win an art prize pack from the three amigos here! So join us, won’t you, for a (slightly) extra long episode of wackiness and reflection and deep dive comics madness! (and check out our special homage to godfather Todd’s iconic Amazing Spider-Man #300)
This week, we figure out who is the first among first among equals, with a very scientific, Tony Robbins-endorsed, leader-off! Cyclops, Nightwing, Captain America, Storm, Superman, Mister Fantastic, Black Panther: which one would you follow into battle? The answer may shock you!
Plus, we’ve absolutely lost our minds, and the news shows it.
This week we’re talking about “pet characters”! Whether it’s the writer’s own creation or just one they’re a fan of, some writers and artists keep going back to the same characters: Peter David loves Marlo Chandler, Brian Michael Bendis loves Luke Cage, Todd McFarlane loves capes, and Chris Claremont just can’t quit you, Sage!
Also: we touch on the sad, sudden passing of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle, try to keep up with comic movie release date musical chairs, and play a fun new game with our trusty deck of 1991 Marvel trading cards!
This week, the boys are down a member. Bry is off looking for the cure for polio but Merk & Kyle are still here for LIGHTNING ROUND!!! A barrage of quick topics & bits it is! Merk will explain the plot of Dragonball….even though he’s never watched an episode! We’ll talk why Erik Larsen thinks the terrorists are winning, what random characters could make up a new FF, how and why Spider-Man could be renamed Spinnerette, why Aunt May should have her own book, who Vin Diesel could play next in a comic movie (Mr. Leatherbee anyone?), who’s on the worst dressed list, who pees sitting down and FINALLY…. a dramatic read of the holy kind! Join us…. it’s only two of us. We need a third. Otherwise, we’re all out of whack!
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!
