This week while the guys give you the latest cookie cutter Marvel and DC news. Including stories like Netflix cancels Daredevil, Warner Brothers is making a Blue Beetle movie and Nick Nolte joins the cast of the Mandalorian. But while recording the guys are interrupted by the newest Captain Marvel trailer, so they give you their live reaction. All this plus an interview with Damian O’Hare (Justice League Action, Constantine: City of Demons). So sit back and enjoy!
While the majority of Rick Parker‘s comics jobs have been lettering, he’s also known as an artist and writer, including on Marvel’s Beavis and Butt-Head comics in the 1990s and Papercutz’ Tales from the Crypt. In this episode, Koom asks Rick about the experience of working at Marvel in the ’70s (including that time he was in a physical altercation in the office!), working as a New York taxi driver pre-Marvel, what was involved in old-school hand lettering of comics, and more.
In this episode the guys discuss the fact that Bill Maher is an ass hat, the Once Upon a Deadpool trailer and the fact that Ducky is the new Lex Luthor. Plus Margot Robbie reveals full title of Birds of Prey movie. All this plus an interview with Matthew Erman creator of Long Lost, so sit back and enjoy!
We lost the legend Stan Lee 2 weeks ago. The comic book world mourned along with everyone else. The outpouring of love and support for Stan came in droves and still continues. Like many, we had a short experience with him. Back in 2006, Producer Joe and Jimmy interviewed him via phone and delved deep into his early years. An amazing conversation to be sure. And in 2012, Jimmy got to meet Stan in person and do a quick 2 minute walk and talk interview with him. While but a moment, it was an honor and privilege to be in the presence of such a genuinely kind, loving, and funny force of nature! Jimmy gives his thoughts on those interviews and Stan himself. As does Producer Joe. Plus, we thought we’d play those interviews again so you wouldn’t have to dig them up. We hope you enjoy this fond memory that we have of him as much as we did revisiting it. Thank you, Stan. For being such an important part of the comic book world and a pop culture icon. For being Marvel’s (and comic books in general) biggest cheerleader. For always finding a way to make us laugh. And for just being you. As always…EXCELSIOR! We’ll be looking for your next awesome cameo in our dreams!

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics writer, art director, publisher, promoter, and icon, died November 12 at age 95. While he is loved by many, and undoubtedly had a hand in some of the greatest stories of Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, and more, he was also known to aggravate disputes over story credit and art ownership with the likes of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. In this episode, Tim, Kumar, and Tom Spurgeon wrestle with the legacy of Stan the Man.
This episode is dedicated to Stan Lee, his family and close friends. Without him and Jack Kirby’s creations this podcast wouldn’t exist. Shit, Allen or I may not be reading comics if it wasn’t for Stan Lee’s views on what an X-Man live with, goes through and fights for everyday. That’s why we love the X-Men.
The moment all X-Men fans have been waiting for is here. Uncanny X-Men has returned and Ryan and Allen had blast discussing it, among Domino #8 and Exiles #10. Thanks for listening!
