Zone 4 #283: Movies Based on Comics

The crew returns to discuss 20 movies that you might not know were based on comics.

This week, it’s Brant, John, Gordon, Ron.

To kick things off, Gordon and Ron share their thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy.

Then, we discuss Don Pardo and various headlines ranging from film, to TV, to comics.

For Topic Time, we talk about 40 movies (but we only get to 20) that you may or may not know were based on comic books, with some added stories and discussion on the movies themselves.

And we close out the show with announcements.

Comic Timing – Episode 93

New Review Corner! On this episode:

Hellblazer 256

Batman in Barcelona

Spider-Man: The Short Halloween

Runaways 11

Picks for October Solicits:

DC

Adventure Comics #3 (HC Price: $2.00)

Fans of Young Justice and Teen Titans have been waiting for this issue ever since we learned of Superboy’s return. Now, we get it! Tim and Conner are back together again; only thing is that a lot has changed since their Teen Titans days. Do the two still gel, even with Tim being Tim Wayne, Red Robin, instead of Tim Drake, Robin? And what about Conner’s metamorphosis since his return? Either way, it’s the dynamic duo back together, and this makes Brent and Ian happy campers!

MARVEL

Daredevil #501 (HC Price: $0.75)

Fans of Young Justice and Teen Titans have been waiting for this issue ever since we learned of Superboy’s return. Now, we get it! Tim and Conner are back together again; only thing is that a lot has changed since their Teen Titans days. Do the two still gel, even with Tim being Tim Wayne, Red Robin, instead of Tim Drake, Robin? And what about Conner’s metamorphosis since his return? Either way, it’s the dynamic duo back together, and this makes Brent and Ian happy campers!

INDY

Chew #5 (HC Price: $1.50)

It’s the hottest new title to hit the ground running in quite some time, and it tastes like a winner! Yes, pun intended. Ian is all caught up on Chew, but this will be Brent’s first issue on the series. It’s the final part of an arc, but is it enough to bring the “I read Marvel and DC and the one Indy Ian makes me read Kid” in for the long haul? I do believe you’ll have to listen in to find out! Nom nom nom.
