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 as Ron is back and Brant is missing. And they talk all about that. There's even a contest Ron institutes!

The Captain then talks a little about Dynamite's pulp-themed comics to get the show kicked off before heading into several headlines.

The topic this week is "What Makes a Good Story" as each of the guys talk about a favorite comic story of theirs and explains why that particular story is good.

Plus, Facebook Shout-Outs, plugs and more!

Welcome back to the Hall of Toys!

Chris is back as his brother Mike fills in for Brant.

This time in the Hall it's a deviation from the usual as the guys give us the E3 special originally intended for the week of the event.

They talk about all the news and announcements coming out of the biggest gaming event of the year, including what they're looking forward to, what they thought of this year's show and much, much more.

The crew returns joined by Chris Ventura as they talk discuss various other Superman-like characters. And they each take a turn at putting their spin on the Man of Steel.

Before that, though, the guys take a look at a new BOOM! Studios title that came out this week, Six Gun Gorilla #1 (of 6), which has now sold out!

Then, there are a few headlines, some Superman related.

Welcome back to the Hall of Toys!

Hosts Brant and Chris talk about the latest and upcoming toys, video games, table top games and collectibles. They also pick a main topic to discuss each time, and will sometimes be joined by guests.

Here's the format for this episode:

INTRO: The guys catch up and joke around before diving into a packed episode.

TOY TALK: It's more talk of recently released and upcoming action figures, statues, and other collectible items. And Chuck Moore swings by to talk Wonderfest 2013, and Derby City Comic Con 2013!

MAIN TOPIC: This week the topic is all about the video game Metro: Last Light as the guys talk in detail about the beautiful game.

GAMING GAB: The guys talk Marvel Heroes, Last of Us, DCU coming to console and E3, then Chuck pops in for an impromptu chat fest on gaming in general.

TABLE TOP TALK: It's a shorter discussion this week, but still some interesting games, including the Hobbit game from Cryptozoic and a bunch of Cthulu. Then Chuck pops in again!

AND... ACTION FIGURE!: Each episode they will each select a figure or set to highlight. This week it's Portal for Chris, and more G.I. Joe for Brant.

CLOSING UP SHOP: The usual mentions and reminders as we exit the Hall of Toys.

The crew returns joined by Chris Ventura as they talk about DC's new initiative, Villain's Month, and Forever Evil. This, of course, runs into a tangent/rant on the outrageous amount of titles this produces for September from DC.

Before that, though, they catch up with the Captain after a very successful Denver Comic Con. And then they talk some headlines, including comic, film and TV news.

Plus, Facebook Shout-Outs, plugs and more!
