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 is back with some general talk and headlines, including Quicksilver's costume in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the new Fantastic Four costumes, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and more.

Then it's on to the main topic, discussing the use of real world events in comics. The guys each give an example of such an occurrence, and then create their own!

Finally, the guys wrap things up with some announcements.

This is it! The 250th episode of Zone 4!

We've promised huge announcements about the future of the show, and boy do we deliver!

The crew opens up with one of their famous radio drama skits to kick things off with a bang. And then it's into a very loose-format show this time around. No headlines, no Topic Time, just general conversation about comics, TV, film and much more!

We do have Facecbook Shout-Outs this week, four of them! And we do have plugs.

And then, of course, there are the announcements. We start sprinkling them throughout the show, then just barrel them out toward the end. There are also audio clips from certain individuals who you'll be hearing from a lot in the future!

Our special guest, Chuck Moore, had to back out sadly, and we missed him, but he'll be back!

So sit back, strap in, and grab some bacon candy... and let the celebration begin!

Then it's Game Gab, as Lisa kicks things off with a discussion of Hearthstone. From there, it's Nintendo's Network being down, Kickstarter games, Game of the Year and more!

After that, it's Table Top Talk, as we learn a certain video game and comic franchise has a game on Kickstarter, plus the Woodbury Expansion for The Walking Dead and more!

And finally, it's And... Action Figure! All three give a pick, plus an honorable mention

Kick off your New Year with HALL OF TOYS! And listen to Zone 4 #250 this Friday for a special announcement about the show!
