Heidi MacDonald (The Beat) returns to join Jimmy in the annual “Best of 2017” podcast! While there were many amazing comic books, TV shows, films and more…these are the best picks that THEY happen to read/watch. They probably missed some of your favorites but hope you check out what they really enjoyed in 2017. I mean, just check out that picture above. They covered A LOT! They’re definitely more loquacious than laconic so buckle up for a long ride! So many great creators in comics this year and quite a few got multiple kudos throughout the podcast. Thanks to Penelope Bagieu, Emil Ferris, Tillie Walden, Tom King, Greg Pak, Sina Grace and many others for bringing us such amazing work last year. Looking forward to all of your future projects! Drop us a line and let us know what some of your favorites were so we can check them out. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love! Also, get a hold of us!
DC recently launched a new Mister Miracle series, by Tom King and Mitch Gerads. Well and good, thought Emmet, but then he saw a certain CBR headline that set him off. “King and Gerads have redefined comics”? Hyperbolic much?
So Emmet recruited Kumar to review both Mister Miracle #1 and the hype surrounding it. Is the use of suicide in the story meaningful? Hackneyed? How accessible is this comic to readers who don’t know the character? And, why does everything in comics have to be super-hyped nowadays?
Get ready for a Zone 4 episode like you’ve never heard before! It’s the originals (more or less), Brant, Chuck K., Cary and John talking about the Top 5 Creepiest Sex Scenes in Comics. No joke, that’s what this episode is about! (It was all Chuck K.’s idea!)
So sit back and be prepared to bask in the awkwardness and hilarity that is this New Years special episode of Zone 4!
DC Entertainment and Boom! Studios artist Dave Beaty along with special guest host Darrell Taylor join Shawn as they reminisce about the Super Powers Collection by Kenner! We talk about the toys (good, great, and bad), the Super Powers mini-comics, & geek out over childhood memories.
