Comic Issues #166 – TV Supreme!

We’ve all been there, a late night at Denny’s enjoying some mozzarella sticks and pacing yourself to make sure you get the last one, when someone start mouthing off about how great BBC television is and how lame it is here in the States.  Then your other buddy exposes his tattoo of Old Glory and reminds your other friend about the Trek.  Then it’s just Doctor Who and Supernatural and Sherlock, blah blah blah…

Now you can shut up your annoying friends before the manager tells you to quiet down before he kicks you out with this week’s podcast.  The crew take a hard look at what England has to offer compared to America’s library of television to debate, WHO’S MAKING BETTER GEEK TV?  Also asked, what IS Geek TV?  Is Monty Python nerdy because nerds are the ones who watch it most? Was CTV edgier than SNL back in their early days? Who are these porn stars that Anthony is supposed to know?

Tune in and see if you agree with who makes a better nerd show.

Comic Issues #164 – We Love the 90’s

The 90’s were a magical time filled with movies that have stood the test of time, comics that we’re still reading on repeat, and some of the best animation of our nerdy lives.  This week the crew fall deep into a 90’s nostalgic worm hole with references to Hackers, M. Night Shyamalan movies, and even mix it up with a new game involving Raptors that we want to play with you!

So put on your Hypercolor shirts, stone washed jeans, and tell us your AOL “hacker” name; cause we’re gettin’ all 90’s up in here!

This week on the podcast we’ll tell you about the new space that’s big enough to hold Magic tournaments, kite-flying, a TARDIS, and a drawbridge. Plus we talk about an exclusive tour of IDW, catching up on Clone Wars, horror movies, and really really weird anime.

Comic Issues #161 – The Battle For Your Love

We’re now in the second week of the Throne of Geekdom, where the icons of TV, movies, animation, comics, and games are fighting it out for your love. Remember, it’s not who would win in a fight (because, really, then Superman wins everything.) It’s a battle to see who you love the best.

So on this week’s podcast the crew talks about who’s likely to take it all the way to the Throne, and who’s going to get beaten into oblivion in the first week. Along the way we also talk about Microsoft possibly ditching Xbox, Marvel rewarding their digital buyers, and how 2018 is a liiiiittle long to wait for a new Avatar movie (the blue monkey-cat-people one, not the Airbenders.)

Comic Issues #160 – Guardians of the Everything Else

Like we said last week, everybody’s busy. But somehow we cram in a few things when we’re not at our jobs. Sometimes it’s freelance work, sometimes it’s getting a new place, sometimes it’s watching COMPLETELY AWESOME TRAILERS. And sometimes it’s dealing with the breeding habits of Pokémon. You heard me: Pokémon. Sex.

Join our heroes and heroine as we talk about a completely random assortment of things that fill our days, including (and not limited to) cat toys, romance novels, steampunk atriums, Stan Lee, Guardians of the Galaxy, and that time of year when a young Pokémon’s fancy turns to thoughts of love and that cute little girl Pokémon over there…

Comic Issues #159 – Working hard and hardly working

Everybody’s working so hard lately, but there’s two kinds of working. First there’s the building, designing, digging, power-tools kind of working. We’re doing a lot of that. But there’s also catching up on all the awesome geeky stuff out there. All those geeky TV shows won’t watch themselves you know.

Join the podcast crew as we debrief on our busy weeks filled with construction, yard work, hazardous dust, Almost Human, Hannibal, Bates Motel, and more.

Comic Issues #138 – 3 Years of Good Geeking

3 years ago four friends started a podcast that would one day save the world… Well some of the names have changed and we haven’t saved the world, yet.  But Comic Issues has marched forward and though some of the faces have changed the spirit has never died.  Together we gather every week to talk about the geeky happenings in the nerd-o-sphere, make fun of each other, and enjoy time spent with friends.  Along the way new friends have graced us with their presence including Leland from Movie Issues, Ross Thompson of Kingdom Con, Amanda Lynne from Birds’of’Play, Colin Bass of Young Justice: Abduction, Chris Gore from Podcrash!, Jonathan Pimentel, and of course Sara, Beau, Chris and Kody from The Villainous Lair.  These three years have been amazing and we have our listeners to thank for it.

So to celebrate 3 years we joined up with our Villainous Friends and played the greatest geeky drinking game ever, DRUNK QUEST! *cue fanfare*  Listen in as friends force each other to battle their demons in the bottle in this EXTRA long podcast.  Don’t worry though as the booze flows the fun grows.

Comic Issues #157 – Why we watched the Super Bowl

Millions of people gathered to watch the Super Bowl so they could see the football game of the year. (Sorry about that Broncos, better luck next time?) But geeks around the world waited through all that football stuff so we could get to the Captain America Trailer, and see Tom Hiddleston in a Jaguar commercial.

Join the podcast crew as we debrief on the Winter Soldier, Spider-Man, and Transformers trailers. We also fit in gaming conventions, BSG: Blood and Chrome, and the wretched excess that was Man of Steel (since Elizabeth only just now got around to watching it.)
