FBBP #7 – “Mommy, Daddy, why are you fighting?”

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , — Jamaal Thomas @ 10:00 am

“Transmetropolitan is why mommy hits daddy, sweetie”…

Find out why the three of us probably can’t discuss Warren Ellis or Transmetropolitan EVER AGAIN. Joe tries to review Desolation Jones (the first trade) and the discussion explodes. At the end of the show, we have our first Podcast Rule: No talking about Transmetropolitan, even mentioning The Smiler will likely provoke violence in the future.

Before the brouhaha, there’s a nice conversation about sales numbers and Gail Simone taking over Wonder Woman before Desolation Jones sets everyone frothing at the mouth, which is strange because we all love the book.

Funnybooks lovers of teenage drama and angst would love! Part One: Teen Drama. Neat.

Filed under: Articles — Gabe Mariani @ 7:01 pm

No TV show or book or genre adequately conveys the kind of thing I am going for this week, so you get an extra long (but appropriately descriptive) title. Teen drama is often done in an extremely annoying or clunky manner, so it’s not one of my favorite things to read about. These books get it right – it’s not just entertaining, but it feels real. Part two of this column (Teen Drama: With a Twist) will be along in about a month or so in the interest of variety.

Funnybooks fans of Lost would love!

Filed under: Articles — Gabe Mariani @ 2:00 pm

Well, here’s another experiment with this format. I was a big fan of Lost when it first premiered, and even though I think it’s fallen off lately, I still enjoy a lot of the plot devices and storytelling techniques they used. Here’s a couple series I think have that same “Lost formula” – intertwining character and plot threads with some science fiction thrown in here or there to keep things interesting. So this week’s column is a list of Funnybooks fans of Lost would love!
