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 175 – WE READ COMICS!
Marty and Dan’s insanely stylish hair cuts cause more than a little envy. But Old Man Marty is confused by all this new fangled retro hair products. Chris Ellis and Marty actually read comics this week! Both go through a few books they read and give you the lowdown. And stay away from Wish $27 Tudor Black Bay luxury watches. What has that got to do with comics? Nada. Nothing. When have these bonehead hosts stayed on topic anyways? San Diego Comic Con is a go and no one told hotels so they could jack up prices?!?! Oh noes!!!
Episode 174 – Existential Crisis
Marty, Chris Ellis and Dan return to the radio waves after a couple of weeks of reruns. Marty is thinking of selling off his collection again, this time to make room for all the Omnibus volumes arriving by mail. Dan FINALLY watches Avengers Endgame .. like … WTF? Chris loves his Dodge #2 Kickstarter reward physical copy. Were-bears!! Tune in for a weekly recap of all things comics.
Episode 173 – Do it!
Once again, none of the show hosts have read a single comic this week! Marty admits to stock market fraud and manipulation! Three copies of Captain Canuck’s oversized version of issue #4 on eBay are taunting Chris and causing him sleepless nights. Adam’s CLZ is the LEAST OCD database on the planet. And Dan looks back nostalgically towards his old podcast, The Hey Kids Fish Radio Show.
Episode 172 – Impulse Control
DC Comics Future State buying frenzy while Chris and Marty went on an appropriately masked, socially distanced, hand sanitizer comic shop run. Chris found a tonne of his beloved Arthur Adams variant covers while Marty spontaneously decided NOT to wait for the trade. Adam blitzed his CLZed app and started from scratch. Marty actually read a comic book, X-Men Legends and liked the 90’s flashback story so far.
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.
