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/

Solitaire Rose Series In Review 4: Master of Kung Fu Part 3

Cory!! Strode and Joe”Kray Z” Rider start a new series of podcasts where Cory!! goes over series from the past in a “DVD Commentary” type fashion to talk about the comics, their place in comics history and why they are worth reading.

Master of Kung Fu was a series about Shang Chi, the son of Fu Manchu, and the rising and advancing of his spirit. It started as a martial arts series that played off of the interest in martial arts movies, but eventually became one of Marvel’s most acclaimed books in the 70’s and is considered a classic today.

In this episodes, they discuss the new direction from when Master of Kung Fu shifted from being primarily a martial arts series to an espionage series. They cover issues:

Master of Kung Fu 29 – 37
