Kray Z Comics and Stories 517: Making Podcasts Out Of Nothing At All

Did Joe bring his list of comics he is ready to review?

No. No he did not. So, instead, Cory!! has to pull topics out of thin air for them to talk about,. Such as:

  • Joe asks Cory!! about an obscure Charlton comics and he doesn’t have the answer.
  • They then talk about comics created for shoe stores. Which was MUCH more prevalent than you think.
  • What does the Hindenberg have to do with Golden Age comics?
  • Has Marvel followed up on Marvel Comics 1000?
  • Change in the Spider-Man creative team and how the comic will come out three times a month
  • Why Steve Englehart left Marvel in 1976?
  • Cory!! tells an anxiety story

All of this, the usual shenanigans and a shout out to a Ronan.
