Issue 48: Before Rorschach: The Question & Mr. A

question

In this episode, the gang poses a lot of questions. Who watches the Watchmen? What questions does the Question question? Why is Mr. A such an A-hole?

We discuss the two characters who were the inspiration for Rorschach in Watchmen. We discuss their origins, their politics, and their unique creator, Steve Ditko. Sly can’t help but defend a fellow asshole while Ryan gets slowly won over by Phil’s wish fulfillment character. Phil is not impressed by superheroes with a play-doh face and while Darryl is not impressed by Ryan’s idea of a joke.

In this episode, we read the most talked about book from DC’s new Hanna-Barbera universe, The Flintstones! Watch as Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty, Pebbles, and Bam-Bam dismantle capitalism, sexism, genocide, miltary propaganda, traditional marriage, consumerism, religion, and GALACTIC BREAK! Phil wonders if the cartoon Fred Flintstone was a Marxist. Sly hosts part one of the “Moranis Fact Corner.” Ryan’s always striving to be fair and balanced. Darryl is an Eggman apologist who loves robot animals.

Issue 46 – Killing X-Men Part 2: Death Of Cyclops

cyclops

After two weeks of arguing, the gang ends with a surprisingly amicable discussion on the Death of X. Death of X being either the death of Cyclops or the death of the X-Men as a franchise however you wanna look at it. But don’t worry, we’ve got Inhumans now! They’re way cooler.

Ryan can’t help but be inspired by Obama-esque speeches, even when they’re delivered by people with stupid Xes on their faces. Sly goes off about the inaccuracies present in the Official Marvel Handbook and it’s explanation of the punch dimension. Phil identifies a lot with Cyclops’ desire to find someone to kill him while Darryl critiques the third graders working on Marvel’s art staff.

Issue 45 – Killing X-Men Part 1: Death Of Wolverine

wolverine

On this episode, the gang’s the best at what they do, and what they do isn’t keeping Wolverine alive.

Death Of Wolverine by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven – tinyurl.com/DeathWolverine

In this episode, we watch the ol’ Canuck die in part 1 of our 2 part series: killing X-Men. It turns out Marvel would rather see the X-Men die before letting Fox get the rights to them. Ryan gets an adamantium injection into his “bone.” Sly grabs some forks and run around as “definitely-his-favorite” X-Man. Phil knows a lot about Japanese culture. Darryl has Nemesis flashbacks, but that’s nothing new. Come back next time and we’ll kill Cyclops!

Special Edition 6 – Suicide Squad (feat. the Joe Kerr)

suicide squad

Suicide Squad won an Oscar and was one of the top grossing films of 2016. That’s all well and good but what do five nerds think about it?

Suicide Squad – www.imdb.com/title/tt1386697/

In this episode, the gang brings back original co-host Joe to discuss one of the most contentious topics yet: is Suicide Squad is the most mediocre movie ever made or the worst movie ever made? Ryan really wants to go to sleep but tyrannical Sly won’t let anyone else speak until he finishes his point. It also turns out that Phil really loves Jughead’s hat when it is on fire. Darryl just wishes Will Smith could be with his kids as Joe realizes he has been betrayed by his ally in arms.

Note: when we say Magnificent Seven, we mean Dirty Dozen. As usual, Ryan doesn’t know anything about movies.

Issue 44 – Keijo!!!!!!!! Boobs & Butts Battling it Out

Keijo

On this episode, the gang finally finds a sport they can get into. Spoilers, it’s fighting but with butts.

Keijo!!!!!!!! – Ass Island – tinyurl.com/KeijoAssIsland

In this episode, we delve back into the world of manga, but this time instead of it being horror themed, it’s nudity! Darryl is our senpai. Phil really loves anime (surprise)! Ryan doesn’t know how respectful he should be towards these characters and can’t decide which names to use. Sly doesn’t want you to believe in his ass, he wants you to believe in the ass that believes in you!

Annual – Civil War 2

Annual

On this episode, the gang revisits an old story but this time it’s worse. Wait, no, that’s what Marvel did. Welcome to our first Annual.

Civil War 2 by Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez – tinyurl.com/BendisCW2

In this episode, we celebrate our year anniversary with Civil War 2! Instead of Captain America vs. Iron Man, now it’s Captain Marvel vs. Iron Man. Is it as good as Civil War? Is it as bad as Civil War? Also the Inhumans are there. Who are they? Nobody cares. Ryan struggles to understand his opinion of Bendis. Darryl loves thought policing. Phil doesn’t understand why everyone in Marvel are sexy teens now except old man wolverine. Sly’s lore corner is really stretched to the limit.

Doctor Strange Meets Ben Franklin – tinyurl.com/StrangeFranklin

In this episode, we return to Steve Englehart’s Doctor Strange. But this time we destroy the world, learn the secret history of America, and get seduced by a founding father. Is it as good as Genesis? Well… Darryl finally finds someone uglier than Namor. Phil has big problems with Man-Shaped things. Sly gives us a healthy dose of Stranger yet lore. Ryan just keeps synchronizing jokes.

Issue 42 – Dr. Strange Vs. Death & Yahweh

Yahweh

On this episode, we finally listen to the public and do a Doctor Strange story and it’s one of biblical proportions. Literally, Yahweh is here.

Doctor Strange – Genesis/Silver Dagger – tinyurl.com/DoctorStrangeGenesis

In this episode, we follow Doctor Strange to the beginnings of time and recreate the beginning of the universe. Now that we have a political podcast, we’re going to tackle something less controversial with our main show: religion. Ryan is a just a Hoary Host of Hoggoth. Darryl has a dark confession to make. Phil hates spoilers more than ever. Sly loves lore, especially when it involves pretending to be members of the clergy and mail fraud.
