Kray Z Comics and Stories 429: October Previews

Every month, there is a new issue of Previews which lists all of the comics coming out in three moths. So, Cory!! and Joe will discuss the new comics, paperbacks, and hardcovers that they will be buying and recommend for YOU to order so you can make sure you get a copy. These episodes are usually Super-sized and this one is no different. Get ready for over 2 hours of comic-y goodness!!

They also discuss:

  • Joe has an apology to give
  • We read listener mail
  • What was the first comic book adapted for TV?
  • Marvel wants all of Joe’s money!
  • Cory!! gives some history on Marvel’s Crazy magazine
  • The crows at the group home where Cory works are mad at him now.
  • I know you aren’t shocked, but Cory!! knows where “Sorority Babes at the Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama.” The Comic has come from.
  • Does that shock anyone at this point?

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