388: Spider-Man’s Greatest Enemy: Reptile!

Spider(-Man), he is our hero! This week, we take a break from doing deep dives, taxing our brains thinking about new and unique things to do on the podcast, and just do what makes us happy: talkin’ ’bout Spider-Man. Who’s his best love interest? Who are his deadliest foes? Does he have way too many costumes, and should he be drawn like a brick poophouse?

All that, plus we for real talk about the version of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 that everyone else saw in the theatres.

304: Shuma-Gorath Does Laundry on Mondays

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!

303: What If… Venom was a Cool Jacket?

To celebrate the launch of “WHAT IF…?” on Disney+, we cook up some “what if” questions of our own! Come with us to explore alternate worlds where… The Vision was made by Apple or Microsoft! The Phoenix Force chose Wolverine over Cyclops! The Venom symbiote took over the Fantastic Four! And much more!! At least twice as many more.

But there’s also news! Such news! Substack is the new Image as the hottest creators make the leap to a new platform! The world reacts as Tim Drake, A Robin, explores his sexuality! And hey, did anyone ask for a quiz about Uatu the Watcher?? Because you’d better believe we’ve got it, friends!

301: Nicolas Cage Tai Chi

We’re all extremely ill with Olympics fever this week, and the only cure for Olympic fever? Our own Olympics, with Jughead, and Bumblebee, and Randy Quaid! Listen in as we argue over which of our clearly-not-thought-through champions deserves the gold in some of the worst events to not be in the “official” games (including some that used to be events, but got the boot)!

Plus, we’ve got a warmup of all-butler Olympics (all-butlers!), and all the news you can handle!

300: Somebody Says Something Stupid and That’s the Title

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)

242: It Ends with Rick Jones Holding a Snowglobe

You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts. This week, we dedicate time to talking about the crazy, the absurd, and the just plain chemically imbalanced. How messed up is The Hulk these days (very), is The Tick legally insane (yep), and is Doctor Strange secretly delusional (it depends)?

All that and hot Jackpot (who?) and Sandman news, and we pit some superheroes against the apocalypse in the Warm Up!
