FBBP #63 – Image and You

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , — Funnybook Babylon @ 11:00 am

We’re back from a Mac-induced hiatus (Can you believe an Apple product had the gall to break on us?), and we talked about Marvel’s massive week (thirty-four books!!!) and whether any of them were worth your money. Marvel’s tidal wave didn’t stop us from talking about DC’s big book, Final Crisis #2. Have Jamaal and Pedro warmed up to Morrison’s Epic Event?

Wizard World Chicago had news that left Pedro full of sadness, hate and joy. Mike Turner passed away on Friday, S-Triangles are back (see 1991 for further details) and Marvel may be creating the wordiest comic book ever.

Finally, Funnybook Babylon has some bad news: Image and Erik Larsen are breaking up. It’s not your fault, you didn’t do anything wrong. They still love each other and you very much. But sometimes a comic artist who becomes a publisher gets an itch to go back to drawing again. He doesn’t have the time to spend with Mommy like he used to. It’s okay, your Uncle Eric Stephenson is your new daddy, so things will probably be the same.

  3. Cool podcast guys and thanks again to say good things about Transhuman. I’m doing the art on it and I’m glad to see you guys liked it or at least found it decent. Happy to see it worked for you!
    Issue #3 in stores soon is going to shock and amuse I think (Shock and Amuse, that’s our motto).
