It’s our Best of 2016! And just like last year, Jimmy sits down with The Beat’s Heidi MacDonald and good pal Jon Hoche to go over their 2016 favorites in comic books, TV and film. They didn’t read or watch everything released that year, so it’s just the Best of what they did read/watch. Fun discussions on great comics, their creators, TV shows, films, actors and more.

Zone 4 #327: It’s Christmas Time in the Zone!


Welcome to Chrispoint! The universe in which Chris Ventura was never born! It’s a Wonderful Life meets Flashpoint in our holiday skit to end the year!

After that, we discuss our most wanted presents, what we loved about comics in 2016, what we’re most looking forward to in 2017, news, and more!

Then, we discuss those properties that are drastically changed for various reasons, and whether this is a good or bad thing.

It’s all about the holiday spirit… and a little classic Zone 4 “discussion”… in this, the final episode of Zone 4 in 2016!

See you next year!

Reviews: Kong of Skull Island #1, New Super-Man #1, Powerpuff Girs Vol 3 #1, Ghostbusters

No rest for the podcaster! The epic 700th episode went down last week and now it’s off to San Diego for Comic Con! Because of all the mad planning and prepping, Jimmy does a quickie solo episode to let you know what his media coverage/plans are for this year’s SDCC. He recruits some friends to do some mp3 reviews for him so it’s not entirely all Jimmy all the time. You’re welcome! Thanks to Rich, Emily, Monica and John for sending their audio reviews in. News includes: a new Jessica Jones comic is coming from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, DC/Vertigo is bringing a comic book sequel to the 1987 film The Lost Boys, Betty Boop returns to comic books via Dynamite Entertainment, Dark Horse announces more adult coloring books including Star Trek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Bryan Lee O’Malley has a new graphic novel trilogy coming your way.

Jimmy will do an SDCC recap next week and will probably just release SDCC specials for 2-3 weeks to catch up on life. So, no regular format podcast for at a bit. Hope you enjoy all the massive coverage he’s going to get! And if you see him out there, say “hi”!
