Funnybooks someone with a sense of humor would love!

Filed under: Articles — Gabe Mariani @ 12:00 pm

In celebration of April Fool’s day, this week we’re going to be taking a look at Funnybooks someone with a sense of humor would love. I’ve picked a few series and authors who I’ve picked out some series, an OGN, a shorter work, and what feels like a humor anthology. I’ve included works with different types of humor, so there’s bound to be something here you’ll like – but I’m pretty sure you’d enjoy all of it.

I’m also gonna loosen up the structure and writing style to make these a bit more fun to read from here on out, so I’d love for you to join me.

FBBP #4 – Pirate Armies @ Love in Paris

Filed under: Blurbs — Tags: , , , — Funnybook Babylon @ 12:27 am

Here’s the fourth installment of our podcast. This week, we discuss digital piracy of comics (as it relates to Dan Slott and the books he writes), a comic that only Jamaal can truly love, and once again Joe brings it all back to France. But the big lesson to be learned today is this, kids: Pointy Ears = Jerk.

Funnybooks your young niece or nephew would love!

Filed under: Articles — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Gabe Mariani @ 8:30 am

I’ve seen many recommendation lists that suggest a number of series (or original graphic novels) to loan to a friend that might get him interested in comics. They usually contain titles as varied as Watchmen by Alan Moore, Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughan, and Fell by Warren Ellis. These are good introductions to the medium, but they don’t all appeal to the same type of reader. That’s where Funnybooks ___________ would love! comes in. This week: Funnybooks your young niece or nephew would love!

Pull List Analysis for March 19th, 2007

Filed under: Pull List Analysis — David Uzumeri @ 4:57 pm

Hey, welcome to the newest feature on Funnybook Babylon. I’m David Uzumeri, and each week I’m going to try to spotlight the major releases, minor releases, and unimportant tidbits coming from the Big Two publishers (with a few additions). A lot of crap comes out every week, and not everybody has the important lack-of-life to know what the hell all of it is, so hopefully I can ed-u-cate you on some neat shit coming out each week.

It’s probably the heaviest week in awhile as the aftershocks of Civil War are finally felt across the Marvel Universe.
