There’s been a lot of news coming from the world of comic books in the last few weeks, and rather than having a normal theme, Cory!! and Joe talk about it, as well as a bunch of other topics. It’s like hanging out at the comic shop on a comfortable couch and talking comics.

  • Mile High Comics got robbed
  • Joe explains why Golden Age comics are hard to find in comic shops in Minneapolis/St. Paul
  • Marvel and DC have hired people who work in YA book publishing
  • The early days of getting guests for the Minnesota FallCons.
  • How Source Comics and Games got Jim Lee for a store signing

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

Kray Z Comics and Stories 409: Which one is better?

It’s a fill in!! Joe is up north and isn’t around to record, so we’ll be using one of the fill in episodes we recorded where Cory!!, Joe and Dangerous Dan Mohr got together at Broadway Pizza to talk comics!

They go over characters that have versions at more than one comic company, and decide which one is better! So, if you want to learn about the differences between Swamp Thing and Man-Thing, or why Deadpool is a knock off of Deathstroke, you’ll love this episode!

OK, you’ll love the episode anyway, but that’s the theme we went with!
