Kray Z Comics and Stories 259: Road Trippin On Gas

The dreaded deadline doom has hit, so we’ve got the last of the Road Trip recordings from their Free Comic Book Day road trip from St Cloud. They talk the Captain American movie and all sorts of other amazingly geeky stuff. It’s like sitting in the car while Joe, Butch and Cory!! are driving around!

Just a warning, some of jokes they tell you probably don’t want your children to hear. Or your boss. Or your friends. But you’ll like it.

Upcoming convention appearances:

LionCon August 27th 2016 is St Cloud MN:

Blizzard World Minneapolis ComiCon Aug 6th 2016

Kray Z Comics and Stories 257: Desert Island Comic Strips

If you were stuck on a desert island, what comic strips would your bring to read?

Oh, come on, buy the premise, buy the bit. The BBC has has Desert Island Discs where each week a guest, is asked to choose eight recordings that they would take if they were to be cast away on a desert island. So, we talk about what 5 comic strips would they bring to the same desert island. They also discus:

  • Who is Jin feuding with? Bonus, Cory!! is still feuding with Vince Colletta and he’s still dead.
  • Believe it or not, they stay on topic for the entire section, so there’s not a lot to type here. Which makes me feel sad, since I like having a lot of stuff here. Still…
  • The show is extra long because they stay on topic!
  • JIN BREAKS KAYFABE!
  • Freaking and geeking
  • IT’S AN EXTRA LONG EPISODE.
  • But Jin says it’s good, so it’s all ok.

All of this and the usual shenanigans. Try it, you’ll like it!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 256: Jin in a Donut

 

We didn’t have a theme or a subject this week, so it’s Joe and Cory!! talking comics and Jin blowing up a giant donut. Or is it dough-nut? I’m not sure. Anyone know? Spellcheck says they both work, but I’m sure that one has to be correct and the other is WRONG.

  • American Foods returns!
  • Cory!! doesn’t understand hockey
  • The Podcast is gonna be appearing at Lion Con https://www.facebook.com/LionConmn/
  • Cory!! read Rebirth books
  • The top selling comics and graphic novels
  • They tell Jin the story of how Civil War killed Joe’s shop is a Tales from the Shop

All of this, freaking and geeking and the usual shenanigans!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 255: Creator’s Rights and Responsibilities

After reading the most recent Brian Hibbs column about how comic shops deal with Creator Owned comics, Joe, Cory!! and Jin Wicked have their OWN discussion about creator own comics both selling them and creating them. Retailers have to live on books coming out on time and creator owned books tend to come out a bit less regularly. And by less regularly we mean the creator finally gets around to putting out the book when they get all caught up on their binge watching of TV shows and recovering from convention hangovers.

We are just kidding!

Spoiler alert: No. We aren’t.

  • They also review the comic Ghoul Scouts!
  • How Joe treated creator owned comics in the 90’s.
  • The problems with creating a new distribution system in today’s comics market.
  • NONE OF US REMEMBER THAT OUR REVIEW SCALE IS BUY, BORROW OR IGNORE. Because we’re messed up.
  • Joe gets his historical information from a comedy site. No, really.
  • Cory!! discusses how people asking for their rights as creators could get them fired.
  • Jin discusses how when she was putting things out regularly, it grew rapidly
  • Jin is confused about the Creator’s Bill of Rights because everything on it is pretty much standard practice for the type of comics she creates and doesn’t know of a time when Creator’s Rights were in questions.

All of this, the usual shenanigans and the usual much, much more!
