It's been a long day, a long issue, and our hosts are a little loopy. Topics of discussion include: Raven's go-to rescue moves usually involve horrific emotional trauma, Hub reads comics in a fugue state, the potential return of a hypnotic baboon, the new 5 laws of robotics, and military ranks as they pertain to potential evil-doing. I think. It's been a long day. All this, plus a new installment of Hostess Fruit Pie Theatre! Enjoy! Enjoy!
The Avengers/Defenders War is nearing its conclusion! Hub shares some Easter fun facts, Cory wishes the issue was frothier, we introduce new lucrative characters The Boodle Bandit and Lil' Jimmy, that Evil Eye still looks like a robo-vagina, and Cory uses a veto which forbids Hub from editing out an embarrassing admission. All this, plus the best way to kill a nazi, a battle of the tiny winged heroes, and an actual conversation between adversaries! It's a frothy breeze! I'm sorry, Cory, but it is!
Our hosts take a look at the delightful New Teen Titans #13. What makes this issue so great? Two words...battle kangaroos! Topics of discussion include: tales of unsupervised childhood knife play, lovingly shit talking your hometown, Cory has a stunning realization about Cyborg's anatomy, and Steve Dayton's remarkable Freshmaker suit. All this, plus the ziggurat chat you crave! Enjoy! Enjoy!
Lordy, Lordy, look who's incredibly hung over. Hub and Cory are still recovering from celebrating Hub's 40th birthday, so this is an...interesting episode. Our hosts take a look at the latest chapter of the Avengers/Defenders War, so topics of discussion include: money lending bears, Hub's mastery of the Spanish language, Dr. Strange's bizarre refusal to form Voltron, and why super-hero archers are always sexually harassing their teammates. Enjoy! Enjoy!
This issue left a little something to be desired, so our hosts had to make their own fun… with a little help from their buddy Whiskey. Join them as they dispense priceless misinformation about pro-wrestler’s alter egos (I know, it’s Ed Leslie not Ed Lindsay), chimera marmosets, and Ancient Greek culture. All this, plus: Gar’s Frankenstein goofing, Columbo vs. Fred Savage, and some unique hair care opportunities.
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!
