Kray Z Comics and Stories 151: Stupid Sexy Flanders

150 is over, and you’d think Cory!! and Joe would take a break, but you would be WRONG! They start up chatting about San Diego Comic Con, Batman day, and Barnes and Noble bribing comic book fans to come in their stores! They also discuss:

  • Cory’s film geekery shows up as he talks about the new version of Metropolis
  • Joe talks gangster movies
  • Cory talks Marvel Star Wars comics
  • John Carter Warlord of Mars Omnibuses. Omnibi? Omnibuseseseses?  I don’t know.  Those big damn books Marvel makes.
  • Lots of TV talk because Cory and Joe love the TV shows
  • Comic book media crossing over so that you can actually get from Charlie Chaplin to Futurama through comic book crossovers.
  • Cory and Joe discuss a memo from Marvel where Marvel nearly got the rights to publish DC’s comics back in the 80’s and what THEY would do.
  • Geeking and Freaking

All of this, the proverbial much, much more and the usual shenanigans!

Kray Z Comics and Stories 147: Binge Podcasting

Joe DEMANDED we start podcasting early, so he obviously has a lot to talk about, right? Nope. So Cory!! has to come up with things to talk about. Things such as:

  • How do Cory and Joe (and many other comics fans) read their comics now.
  • How Netflix has affected comic reading
  • How can comic shops cater to the new way people read comics and consume media
  • Marvel’s future history chronology
  • The different philosophy between Marvel and DC when it comes to capitalizing on tie-ins.
  • Back when Diamond would get MAD about trying to sell comics directly to shops and fans
  • Freaking and Geeking, where Joe will send you FREE STUFF!!

All of this and much, much more!
