Kray Z Comics and Stories 50: 50!

What specialness will Joe and Cory!! have on their fabulous 50th episode?

NONE! It’s too much work! Although we DO give you the secret to scoring free root beer at the Minnesota State Fair.

Joe starts talking about the trend of people taking old team-up books and making team-ups that never happened, like The Thing and Futurama, Batman and the Boba Fett and putting them up on the internet. Joe has WAY too much time on his own in New Mexico. And the people who makes these, why don’t they have jobs that would keep them too busy for such silliness?

And since people love it so much, we delve right into Tales From The Shop, sponsored by Chris B. Now, go to her website, but a CD, sign up to get e-mails on her upcoming gigs and tell her you’re damn happy she’s supporting Tales From The Shop! Oh, and we talk about how YOU could get on the podcast AND win a copy of Clan Destine by Alan Davis. Come on, we need lyrics ya lazy bums!

We tell the long awaited when we locked a customer in the shop Story!! And yes, it DOES contain information on a Spam Pizza, “I like-a Superman”, and other odd customers that would come into the shop. There is a LOT of information here about what shops do when people abandon their comics, why shops used to ignore a lot of small press comics, how we put a waitresses child through college and people being told by their sisters to buy their comics.

We also discuss discounts, shipping issues, Ape Nuts, Spawn, companies soliciting books that they know they won’t ship, Ultraverse advertising, Hurricanes, Peter David’s new book, our crickets, stuff Joe’s wife shouldn’t hear, Netflix and the proverbial Much More more and the usual shenanigans!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 49: Butts and Wits

We jump right in by talking about how Conan didn’t light the box office on fire, and more on the way Cowboys and Aliens made it’s way to the screen and eBay fame. This leads to a discussion of Mark Millar, The Simpsons, Squeak the Mouse and comics too violent to be imported into the US. This leads to…

Tales From The Shop, sponsored by Chris B, and we go into more detail on our contest to write lyrics for the Tales from the Shop Theme!

We quickly move to the bad guys in Hostess ads, Joe buying comics at Hastings and Cory keeps wondering how he gets from New Mexico to Wisconsin so quickly JUST TO BUY COMICS, and then they read the ad that DC Comics has given comic shops to promote the new 52 #1s!!!

Weirdly enough, this leads into Joe talking about buying ads for his old comic shop on TV and then into the secret history of the cable access show they were on in the 90’s called Collectin’ Stuff and how it is connected with Professional Wrestling! All this and the usual shenanigans!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 48: 52 Part 2 (Electric Boogaloo) or Dem Old Ordering Blues

Cory wants to dive right into finishing up the order projections on DC’s 52 new #1s, but Joe gets things off track, as he always does, by talking about putting together orders at his old comic shop. After they get done with that silliness, they dive back into what they would order on the DC Reboot if they still worked at and/or owned a comic shop.

After they get done with the rundown of order figures, Cory goes on a HUGE rant on how DC isn’t doing their part to help the retailers by laying out an ad campaign. After they get done, they talk about the comics Joe is buying in New Mexico, watching TV through streaming and other shenanigans.

At the end, we shove in the ads including an ad for Chris B …and there is a CONTEST where people can send in lyrics to the Tales from the Shop theme and win fabulous prizes!

All this and much much more!
