Kray Z Comics and Stories 420: August Previews

What a waste. It’s episode 420, and Joe and Cory!! could have talked abut the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, the infamous time Marvel creators got high, wandered around New York and plotted comics, the ways that comics have screwed up depicting drug use over the years, or that time Cory!! got real high and read Crisis on Infinite Earths and freaked out for weeks whenever the sun set and the skies were red.

Instead, they BLOW the opportunity and go through the latest Previews catalog, explaining the books they are buying or they find interesting! They also discuss:

The new way DC is selling their 100 page giants

Cory!! thinks IDW is DC for a moment. Maybe he was high?

Joe describes the coolest scene in Books of Magic by Neil Gaiman.

Someone is publishing unauthorized Conan comics.

We’ve also go Freaking and Geeking, Joe’s eBay, the usual shenanigans and much, much more!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 417: Fantastic Fourcast

Last week, Joe dragged Cory!! to a convention, this week, he dragged him to downstate Minnesota, so this week, they have been hit by the Dreaded Deadline Doom! Normally there is a fill-in episode ready to go, but instead, this is a rebroadcast of another podcast Cory!! does.

The Fanstastic Fourcast had a single episode WAY back at the beginning of the year, but it’s about to fire up again with new episodes, so here is an introduction to the show!!

It’s a podcast 57 years in the making! It’s.. The Fantastic Fourcast! Face front, True Believers, because hosts Cory Strode (yes, he’s on another one) & Adam Vermillion (yeah, that pizza & comics guy) are here to take you on a monthly journey that ranges from Central City to the Negative Zone to Latveria (and maybe Counter Earth) and back.

Every 30 days the guys will talk about four issues of Marvel’s First Family! Cory’s a long time reader and font of knowledge. Adam… is not. At least not about the FF.

The podcast is at http://fantasticfourcast.solitairerose.com/

Adam is over at http://www.fancypantsgangsters.com/show-category/floc/
