Kray Z Comics and Stories 204: Kray Prison Massacre

Joe and Cory are going to talk about their favorite time periods for different comic books companies. However, you KNOW that they can’t just start like that. Joe has shenanigans to get through. He is trying to get rid of one of his DVDs, and this leads to a discussion about great director’s commentary. They also discuss:

  • Joe and Cory got together to to watch SummerSlam
  • Joe talks about trading comics book trades for omnibuses
  • A comparison of Jesus Christ Superstar and Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter
  • When Cory and Joe Loved Marvel Most and when that changed
  • When Joe loved Marvel Most and when that changed
  • When Cory and Joe loved DC and when that changed
  • When Cory and Joe loved Image the most and when that changed. OK, this one is current for Cory, so it hasn’t changed yet. So watch it.
  • Caliber’s subscription service.
  • A new American Food segment about a new Breakfast beer!
  • Freaking and Geeking
  • Cory goes on an old school rant. I mean Pre-”warm and Fuzzy” Cory. I mean pre- The Four Agreements Cory! I mean “The Most Mizzerable Son Of A Bitch ON The Planet!” Cory!!

We DID have a run-in by Jin Wicked at the end, but technical difficulties caused that part not to be recorded. You can blame Cory!!, since it is probably his fault. He is kind of a doofus. All of this and the proverbial Much, Much more!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 201: The Director’s Cut

After episode 200, Cory!! and Joe invited Dan Mohr, Jin Wicked and guest interviewer Butch to hang out and chat about their early experiences reading comic strips and comic books.  Instead, it’s pure chaos, lots of laughs and maybe JUST maybe, they are able to make Cory!! laugh so hard the show stops dead for 2 minutes.
