If you live in Toronto, you know him as the popular DJ on 102.1 The Edge. But his comic book geek cred is strongest as the writer behind the scifi epic ,The Fourth Planet published quarterly by Chapterhouse Comics. He’ll tell us how the idea had its roots in his love of paleo-cultural anthropology (the origins of culture) and how Marvel’s Infinity Gauntlet changed his life. Meanwhile, we discuss why the endless crossover events and relaunches are ruining comics, how Fred got his start in radio and why he entered the ring with his own podcast Issue Zero.
There’s a lot more to K. Trevor Wilson than meets the eye, and Aaron Broverman wants to see it all, so long as it pertains to comics.

Tony’s back! You get to hear all about his trip to Florida! All. About. It.
Linz reviewed Paper Girls #11. This issue was a transitory issue, setting up the girls adventure in another place?…time?…dimension? It is unclear to the reader and the characters of the story actually where and when they are right now, but they are definitely not in Kansas anymore (that’s a movie reference for your ass, this story does not actually take place in Kansas). This series, written by Brian K. Vaughn and drawn by Cliff Chiang, comes highly recommended by Linz. Her review does not do it justice, go out and buy them all! Right now! We’ll wait.
OK, assuming you just got back from the comic book store, you can rejoin our conversation, which covers topics such as the new Legion show, super hero origin stories, the Power Ranger suits for the movie, and Kevin Smith.
Tony talked more about his trip to Florida.
And then Tony talked even more about his trip to Florida.
Booze and a Book this week was Kingpin #1 paired with a Long Island Ice Tea.
The co-creators and co-writers behind Songs for the Dead – a new indie comic about a young female necromancer who goes on an adventure to rescue a boy from her village – stop by to relay what it was like making and publishing their first real comic book.
Linz, Tony, and Josh gathered this week to talk about all things current and nerdy. Well, mostly. Turns out Josh is about a year late on a theory that widely circulated the internet about year ago. Still made for an interesting discussion though.
After trying to figure out what version of reality they were currently in, things moved to Tony’s most favorite topic: Power Rangers. Seriously, we should probably think about changing the name of this podcast to Drunk on Power Rangers. What started out as a review about issue 11 of the Power Rangers comic from BOOM! Studios quickly turned in to a history lesson about the Power Rangers and then a full on geek out from Tony and Josh, while Linz just sat back and watched the weirdness. Of course, the new Power Rangers movie trailer came out, so that became part of the discussion as well.
This week your hosts remembered they were a comic book podcast and reviewed some books! Along with Power Rangers #11, Tony also reviews WWE #1. Not having watched wrestling when this storyline took place, he is interested in where this story is going and is appreciative of the “backstage look” this comic offers. Both the writing and the art are on point. Later in the podcast, Linz reviews Curse Words #1 written by Charles Soule and drawn by Ryan Browne. The is a fun book full of wizards and magic, but with a great twist that can only be brought to you by the duo working on this book.
Other topics brought up during this episode are the rumors behind the casting of Cable in the next Deadpool movie and the possibility of Hellboy 3. They also covered the newest Logan trailer.
Booze and a Book this week is Monsters Unleashed #1 paired with an Absolut Monster.
Derek and Tony hold down the fort right before the holiday weekend, and they get into a bit of the holiday spirit with a few of their books they reviewed this week. They also go all across the board with a little bit of everything this week from all aspects of the comic industry.
The guys had some fun talking about about some serious stuff about the animosity against certain comic creators, and others who have taken up the backlash to raise funds to stop online bullying. Tony spoke a bit about what is going on in the books of Marvel, and Derek explained why his life is shitty, literally.
Booze and a Book was X-men vs Inhumans #1 paired with a Strohs for certain reasons
