Non-Stop Comic Shop #21: Roxxon, Roxxoff

On an especially crude 21st episode of the Non-Stop Comic Shop, Jordan first sets the record straight about the “Witched Road” debacle from last time, then reviews two comics all about everyone’s favorite evil oil company, Roxxon! First up in Marvel Two-in-One #73, the only other Marvel character named Xavier leads a Roxxon project to drill for oil in a parallel dimension, which would be heralded as a shrewd NIMBY idea if not for their enslavement of the local cavemen, leading to a revolt headed by the Stone Age Gamer logo. After the break, it’s finally time for Ka-Zar: the Burning Season, Paul Jenkins’ mind-numbingly dull take on the politics of the Savage Land (AKA Pangea, AKA crappy Wakanda). It’s a country of orcs, centaurs, unfortunately named bird-people and whiny electric ghosts; and where Roxxon’s latest evil scheme is thwarted by the real heroes: FDA regulations! Plus, we’ve also got the unwelcome return of the man who came from Uranus, incomplete Titanic reference trilogies, morbid Twitter polls, and Jordan’s fantastic fake snoring skills! #NotThatRalphMacchio

Jordan Hazelwood

Jordan has been creating geeky Internet media for about 8 years now, starting with his late lamented video review show, Geek Criteek. Fun fact: the cat-shaped bean bag in his profile pic is that show's mascot, cleverly named Criteeky! He's since found his calling as a podcaster and video game live-streamer, hosting and editing over 100 episodes of each. An avid fan of D&D, MST3K, the PS4 and the MCU, he isn't sure which is his prouder achievement: that he framed one episode of the Non-Stop Comic Shop by singing the plot of Thor Ragnarok to the tune of a Steve Miller song, or that during that very song he was able to come up with a rhyme for "Devil's Anus".
