We start up with a word from our sponsors and a little talk about the local Minneapolis Indie Expo: ( Then Joe says goodbye to Alaska as this is his final show from the home of salmon and bears who rent houses. Cory explains why he hasn’t read any comic books in a week which leads to work stories and a job interview story.

Cory then launches into a rant about how everyone is blaming Joe Quesada for the “Spider-Man marriage” stuff, and Cory delivers a bit of history around the Spider-Man marriage which goes off into other shenanigans. Then, 40 minutes into a podcast featuring a debate, we get to:

Kray Z Comics and Stories 21: Hi Rob!

We’re back!! Joe’s internet works, Cory doesn’t have to be at work at 5:30 am, so we were able to get to all of our leftovers. We start with updating people as to what Joe and Cory have been doing, and dive right into story time.

Cory explains how he got paid to watch Comic Con coverage on G4 and complains about said coverage. Joe then fills us in on when a car crashed into the hair salon next to his comic shop, how a car ramming into Dairy Queen was the first sign of spring and how to use the cold in Minnesota to do insane tricks. Cory then explains how he’d get tricked into doing awake overnight shifts after a 18 hour day and how Cory tried to hire Joe to work for HIM at one point. Cory then points out one of the more…romantic…subplots from the early Avengers books between Captain America and Nick Fury.

Yeah. Let that sink in.

Joe then tells the story of the infamous Image Tent at the Chicago Comic Con and how “Hi Rob!” became a bizarre greeting for the crew at Hot Comix. Cory then tells the story of how he got the manager at a local wrasslin’ event upset with him outside of storyline.

And yes, here’s the link Joe is obsessed with:
