Zone 4
Four friends engage in in-depth comic related discussion and all around good, fun conversation focused on the world of comics.
 

The crew returns joined by Chris from Dark Avenger INC as John got carried away by a rogue snowman in Ohio... or something like that. The four look back on the year of 2012 and talk about the more memorable moments or events in comics according to them.

They also talk several headlines covering comics, film and television.

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

And one more tease for the upcoming LIVE 200th episode on January 11th!

It's the year-ender episode of Zone 4, and so much fun was had during it!

The crew returns with some holiday themed discussion, despite some minor audio flaws (tracks got overlapped a bit) and random sidetracks that Zone 4 is famous for. The episode even starts off with our preshow, which is just a big snowball of random, but fun discussion!

We also talk comic headlines, John gives us shopping tips, we discuss Marvel NOW!, and our main topic is a surprise you don't want to miss!

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

And one more tease for the upcoming LIVE 200th episode on January 11th!

The crew returns to reimagine some original Image Comics titles. We each take a classic title from Image and revamp it and the results prove to be very interesting!

Before we get to that, though, we talk several headlines, including our thoughts about the Gail Simone situation and DC in general, the Man of Steel and G.I. Joe: Retalliation trailers, the casting of Roy Harper on Arrow and more!

The final keyword for this phrase in the New Listener Drive is given.

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

Brant is joined by Don "The Mayor" Johnston and Brandon "Brando" Barrows as the three talk about the first half and midseason finale of Season 3 of THE WALKING DEAD television series based on the hit comic by Robert Kirkman. There are SPOILERS for both the TV show and the comic, but we try to be very respectful and keep them light, and we do indicate spoiler alerts.

In true Zone 4 fashion, the discussion does veer off a couple of times, but it's all related in the end, and much fun is had.

No, wrestling fans, this is not about CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Bret Hart or anyone else in the world of wrestling.

The crew returns down a man as Gordon is tumbling through space somewhere on some grand adventure. The rest of the crew covers some headlines, mostly relating to comic films, and Brant finally gives his thoughts on The Dark Knight Rises.

Then they discuss the best comic franchise in the world. Superman? Batman? Spider-Man? Listen to hear what they think.

The new keyword for the New Listener Drive is given. For those keeping score, this is word 2 of this phrase.

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

And one more announcement for the upcoming LIVE 200th episode on January 11th!

The crew returns joined by Chris Ventura of Dark Avenger INC as the four discuss several comic headlines, learn more about Chris, and talk about the jaded outlook of the industry involving gimmicks, events and so forth versus just reading for enjoyment. This one goes off onto all kinds of related tangents!

Also, the first keyword for the new phrase in our New Listener Drive is revealed. If you missed the first one, you have another chance!

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

The crew returns as they go heavily into the CW's ARROW television series talking about the first six episodes of the show. They give a non-spoiler overview, then go into FULL SPOILERS for the season so far, talking cameos, Easter eggs, plots, subplots and more!

Plus, they briefly discuss the Variant Cover trend after reading comments made by Marvel EIC Axel Alonso that had them all calling hogwash.

Also, the third and final keyword for the first phrase of the New Listener Drive is announced, so listen and send the phrase to us!

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

The crew returns as they discuss what caught their interest out of the February 2013 solicitations from Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, IDW and Aspen.

They also talk about the ending of Hellblazer with #300, and talk about what other properties work better outside main continuity, or if there's a reason for them to be separate at all and so forth.

Also, the second keyword for the first phrase of the New Listener Drive is announced.

The crew is joined by Frank Raynor as they cover several headlines of the week, including Disney's interest in buying Hasbro, and the insane amount of variant covers JLA #1 gets.

We give more hype about the upcoming 200th episode of Zone 4, including new prizes offered for the Bingo game, and one or two guests to drop by. Plus, we announce the first keyword for our New Listener Drive!

We also talk about a few films, Kickstarter, and all this through a bunch of technical difficulties!

Of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!

And if all that isn't enough, we also made a really cool announcement about a new joint-venture of sorts involving Zone 4!

We also talk about Monkeybrain's generous offer for The Hero Initiative, Bryan Singer's X-Men plans, the future of SDCC, and a little Marvel NOW!

And of course, more Facebook shout-outs, plugs and more as we count down to 200!
