The Avengers/Defenders War is underway! Our hosts take a look at Avengers #116. Tangents include: the danger of cartoon eye shapes, Hub has a way with telemarketers, script problems with Legally Blonde 2, rock lyrics are dumb, wing hat envy, and Cory gives Hub way too much homework. All this plus probably some superhero stuff! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Our hosts take a look at New Teen Titans #11. Hub may have had a little bit more podcast juice than he intended to before recording this one. Discussion points include: Wonder Girl gets mind controlled (again), Hyperion is the worst, the Purple Ray is definitely not a panacea, Cory and Hub have hazy memories of their childhood obsessions with Greek Myths, "Uranus" keeps being a very funny word, and Hub is "America's Songbird". Good luck!
The Avengers/Defenders War is about to begin! Our hosts take a look at Defenders #8 (with just a smidge of Avengers #115 thrown in for flavor). Topics of discussion include: psychedelic ham chowder, mnemonic devices to help determine if mind control is being employed, garbage arrows, and morning DJ sound effects. All this, plus the debut of a new minutia segment! Pting! Boing! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Our hosts take a gander at New Teen Titans #10, and dang! There is a lot of comic book in that comic book! Topics of discussion include: Muppet scientists, the unfortunate retconning of an interracial relationship, 4 bit gaming in a science fiction universe, Beast Boy has had a rough go of it, and why you should never ever use a hair dryer while making a phone call. That last one is pretty self explanatory. Enjoy! Enjoy!
Cory is back! The boys take a look at the delightfully wacky Defenders #7. Topics of discussion include: Hawkeye being the absolute worst, Attuma and his 'Rock'n Wrestle Connection' baddy buddies, Krush Groove, unnatural crustaceans, and the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War. Also, Hulk's favorite bean recipe, a contest winner is chosen, and Hub's new favorite villain is the Red Ghost. Phew!
Oh, and there's also a double dolphin nipple punch. Enjoy! Enjoy!
Cory was kidnapped by some aliens looking to topple his financial empire, so Hub is joined by musician Brian Mumford (of Dragging An Ox Through Water, Sun Foot, and The Deep Fried Boogie Band). Hub and Brian take a look at New Teen Titans #9 and attempt to answer such age old questions as: Can a kick to the crotch undo mind-control? (yes), Is "drunk at a wedding reception" a good look for a robot? (also yes), and who controls the means of production? (Deathstroke the Terminator does). All this, plus a frank discussion of the film Swing Kids. Enjoy! Enjoy!
The Defenders tussle with a stoner sorcerer named Cyrus Black. Looks like Steve Strange better brush up on his Defense Against the Dank Arts! Our hosts discuss power play moves for high priced businessmen, wax nostalgic about 80's British comedy, and debate which movies would most benefit from an LL Cool J theme song. Plus, learn how to enter a contest to win a thing Hub made! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Hey, if you're one of those people who complain when politics come up, you might want to skip the first 3:10 of this one. Just a heads up. Other than that...The boys look at New Teen Titans #8. It's Hub's turn to try his hand at a terrible accent; robo-racism vs. regular kind; don't space punch horses; and more fashion foibles than you can bong a dinger off of! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Whew! This one is a doozy! The boys get even more off topic than usual as they cover Defenders #4. Discussion topics include: Be nice to hermit crabs or Hub might punch you, Patch the Pony, Steve Strange's basic dairy knowledge, and probably something about the comic they read. Probably. The audio might be a little jacked, but I did my best. Sorry.
Good afternoon! Cory's back! Big things are afoot for the Titans! The team's not so mysterious benefactor is revealed. A Titans leaves the team! Maybe. Kind of. Our hosts discuss: deathbeds vs. Death Bed, other dimensions are no damn good, fart monsters vs. dick monsters, and NEVER get a jellyfish stuck on your head if Gizmo is around.
