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

Brant and Captain Ron are joined by their new co-host (listen to find out who!), and the first official "fourth chair" guest, Mike Watson (Freestyle Komics, Studio 4 Hire). The four discuss the recent crop of comic movies that hit the theaters, and in one case, the DVD shelves. It's a spirited discussion with many different opinions.

Movies discussed include THOR, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, SUPER 8, GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD KNIGHTS, and of course, the latest addition to the list, GREEN LANTERN.

SPOILER WARNING: Nothing is held back, so if you haven't seen these films yet and don't want them spoiled, watch them first, or skip around if you haven't watched them all.

Next week: The crew is joined by Glenn Arseneau, creator of Bulletproof Angel, as the four discuss digital media, social media, etc. and how it has affected the comic industry.
