FBBP #29 – Podcast: Arena!

Filed under: Podcasts — Funnybook Babylon @ 2:57 am

We got a bit of a surprise for you this week, so even if you don’t like to hear us blather on and on about comics, you absolutely have to listen to the opening of this week’s show, I spent waaaay too much time on it.
Also, we talk:

DC & Random House BFF!
X-Factor: Bitches get Cut edition!
And the Jeph Loeb Happy Hour!


-your friendly neighborhood editor.


  1. Great intro.

  2. Wow – I didn’t realize that Daniel Way is a hated figure. I’ve read and loved almost everything that he’s written. I guess that’s just me?

  3. I can’t speak for fandom collected, but I do remember all of his early interviews being really dumb and abrasive, and I haven’t been able to get into Wolverine Origins at all, though that may have a lot to do with my disinterest in Wolverine. Is there other Way titles I’ve overlooked that I ought to check out?

  4. I do like Wolverine: Origins, but I can understand it not appealing to everyone. (And it probably doesn’t help that Steve Dillon’s art style makes everyone wearing spandex look as ridiculous as they would in real life.)

    I’d recommend Bullseye’s Greatest Hits if you want to give Way another shot. It’s just a random 5-issue mini from a couple years ago, so it might be a little hard to find, but it’s one of those rare recent comics that I’ve actually liked enough to read more than once. (And while Dillon does pencils here, too, there isn’t a cape in sight; so, as long as you can overlook every third character being Herr Starr, the art is just peachy.)

    PS – I still miss Downcounting. (And everyone always says nothing good came out of Countdown!)
