A group of longtime comic reading pals share hosting duties on The Hey Kids Comics Radio Show broadcast live on Trent Radio 92.7 CFFF FM in lovely Peterborough, ON Canada every week. Join Dan, Marty, Chris, Chris and Adam as they rant and rave on the hobby they love.
Episode 171 – Ipsum?
We’re starting to formalize flexible opinions around our foundations but, can we try it a different way so we don’t get too far into the weeds. What’s the status on the deliverables for fourth quarter? We have to leverage up the messaging so please submit the files by next Monday. Onboard the right info at the right time to the right people … huh?
Episode 170 – sigh
Is everyone okay? How are you feeling? Covid-19 lockdowns got you down? We hear ya. Marty, Chris and Dan struggle through a show tired of all the horrible behaviour being reported in the press, cancelling actors, unnecessary relaunches, unwanted new character introductions to drive variant cover sales and a mess of other straws chipping away at our proverbial backs. Soon, soon we will be back at comic conventions, chatting with friends face-to-face and digging in long boxes for treasures. Maybe. Hopefully.
Episode 169 – Chapter No More
Chris, Chris, Dan and Adam hold on tight as Marty just lets loose with both barrels. Chapterhouse Publications is no more! Sorta. Kind. Enter Lev Gleason Publishing, continuing the adventures of the Chapterverse and Marty’s favorite, Captain Canuck. Who knew a simple UPC code could trigger such a rant? And we get to watch the Cloak and Dagger TV show on Disney + Star? Coooool …
Episode 168 – Memory Lane
Chris, Chris, Marty, Dan and Adam … the entire crew made it for this nostalgic walk down memory lane. The lads talk about hitting the fancy Toronto shops up and down Queen St. But our beloved Peterborough doesn’t escape the look back as we also discuss Sandy’s and Dixon’s book stores. Once again, noooooboody want’s the hot books until they are hot as we watch prices skyrocket on silly books like Astonishing X-Men and Dark Horse Star Wars “1st appearances”. And Kingdom of Kroz rocks!!!!
Episode 167 – Read-Only Memory
Chris Ellis is watching Doctor Who now! Much to Adam’s chagrin and Dan’s joy. Marty is itching for collected editions of all the great 70’s Marvel licensed comics like ROM, Micronauts and Godzilla. And who could forget Neal Adams drawing Mr. T in loving 90’s Gold Foil grandeur? Um, us, that’s who.
Episode 166 – Frank Bolan
Marty, Dan, and Chris chat about Marvel facing calls to cancel Mack Bolan, The Executioner … er … ah … I mean Frank Castle, The Punisher after his logo was used by some of the Capitol insurgents. Is it just? Should Frank pay for having his iconic skull logo co-opted like this? Do we need a Frank Castle reinvention?
