This week it’s something a little different, with us looking at Marvel Premiere #26, featuring Hercules! There’s tree murder, Bill Mantlo, George Tuska, and a little one off tale that I’m pretty sure was originally intended as a fill-in issue of The Champions… Still, why not have a listen?
We continue our coverage this week of Hercules Unbound with issue #2! Hercules and Kevin face off against Cerebus! No, not the aardvark. The less interesting character with the blue dogs. This issue contains cruelty to animals, a bad British stereotype, Hercules mixing up his mythologies, and more! Don’t miss it!
Happy Holidays! As we head into the late December holidays, we wrap up coverage of Hercules: Prince of Power with issue #4! It’s a big battle issue as Herc faces off against his old man, Zeus, while Skyppi and the Recorder fight a weird horse-headed stone creature! Can you guess the big shock ending? I bet you can! HAVE AT THEE!
The Zone 4 crew returns for a special holiday edition of the show! They share what they’re thankful for in the world of comics, talk headlines, and discuss Doctor Strange and Daredevil Season 1!
Plus, some hilarious outtakes with potential plans for a future episode!

It’s our 250th episode! So to celebrate we’re not doing anything special! This week we cover issue #1 of the second Hercules: Prince of Power miniseries from 1984! Yes, Herc is back, along with the Recorder, and a few new faces besides! See Zeus get all pissy! See a lot of NOT-Star Wars stuff! A dude with the Executioner’s haircut! And an old decrepit Skrull in a skimpy bathing suit! Plus I talk about what I thought of the new Doctor Strange movie! (no spoilers) Nuff said!
Individually they were just like those guys who like to hang around the comic book shop and talk comics but together they form the Earth’s Mightiest Podcast!
In this episode we review Marvel Comics Avengers Books books of November 2015.
