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 - minus John, who was MIA* - for the last episode of 2013 as they each highlight the best comics, TV shows, movies and more for the year in their opinion.

Then it's on to a single Facebook Shout-Out, followed by some headlines "from the cutting room floor" as they are all film related.

After that, it's Topic Time with Mark Waid's Green Hornet #8.

And then to wrap it all up, some plugs and one final tease for the 250th!

*John, we learned later, was very, very sick. He's better now.

Thank you ALL for all your support throughout the year and the years before!

The crew returns minus Gordon, who had some mishaps with a Doctor and some clothes... but the guys rally and almost have a fourth (before locking him in the closet...). So first up, they discuss some headlines and all that jazz.

Then, a shout-out, followed by a discussion of the first two issues of I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Agents from BOOM! Studios. Yes, folks, Brant makes John read a book with a giant teddy bear, and he likes it!

Finally, some plugs and teases for the 250th.
