Kray Z Comics and Stories Episode 61: Moving Day

We start off with a NEW episode of “Where in the world is Joe Rider”, since Joe has been called up to travel somewhere. We’ll send a cookie to anyone who can guess where Joe has been sent. He’d like to know, since he had to go with only a day’s notice. This leads to a discussion of having comics and other geeky things ready in case you have to quickly travel or do an extra overnight shift. Cory explains why they haven’t had a new show for the last couple of weeks.

As we get into the show, Cory talks about the passing of John Severin and explains a little about his career. That’s right, they really don’t start talking about the stuff around the show itself until about 15 minutes into the show. We know Cory loves Wrestlecrap radio, but does he have to rip off THAT part of the show?

This leads to Geeking and Freaking: Joe is geeking about the things he brought to read on his most recent assignment, and Cory is geeking about some older comics stories and DVDs series that he brings to watch on his overnights. Cory break the news as to what Brian Michael Bendis will be working on after he leaves the Avengers books…well, they discuss the rumor that is circulating. When we get to Tales From The Shop, they first talk about the show “Comic Book Men” and how it’s pretty rare that rare, cool things were brought in by people to sell and the show has for to five cool things every episode.

We then have ANOTHER Tales From The Shop story as one of the local shops is moving to a new location, and Joe tells the story of when he moved from a small store to a larger store right next door! All this and the usual shenanigans and foolishness!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 60: Before Before Watchmen

Joe begins the episode by explaining who the city of Chaska is named after. I can’t explain the stuff, I just tell you about it. When they start talking comics, they discuss the closing of Dreamhaven Books, the people they met there, the celebration Dreamhaven held and the stuff they bought. After they talk about the shop, Cory talks about his running through all four seasons of Mad Men in two weeks, DVD commentary and redheads. Always redheads.

When we do Geeking and Freaking, Cory is geeking about Spider-Man and the AMC lineup while Joe is geeking on giveaway comics.

Oh, enough of the prelims. Cory and Joe talk about “Before Watchmen!” They argue and…OK, Cory bellyaches about it and Joe is much more reasonable. They also discuss the issues of creator’s rights, history around Watchmen and much, much more. All of this and the usual shenanigans!
