FBBP #98 – Blood and Thunder

Filed under: Podcasts — Chris Eckert @ 10:23 pm

Thor has NEVER BEEN MORE METAL! Except maybe from 1976-1985, apparently.This week, we review the stories that will comprise the upcoming Thor: Ages of Thunder, Matt Fraction‘s multi-artist journey through Marvel/Norse mythology. Fraction’s claimed he listen to a lot of heavy metal to pump himself up to write these stories, and it shows. We can’t recommend you listen to Slayer and Manowar while listening to this podcast, but let us know how it works out if you do!

Just two more until the big Episode #100 (which is technically something like the 108th podcast we’ve done, but if it’s good enough for The Hulk…) and we’re still soliciting ideas for it, general feedback, and gently begging for iTunes reviews. You don’t even have to be nice! We can take it! Joe’s getting quite good at editing out our sobbing fits.

  2. This podcast appears to be softer than previous podcasts. I’ll edit the sound levels and put up a louder one tonite. I’m no Joe when it comes to editing these things.

  3. Glad I caught this before listening. If I have the choice of turning up my iPod to dangerous levels or going through a bit of withdrawal while waiting for the tweaked version, I’ll deal with a bit of twitching and convulsing.

    Pretty sure I put up a review on iTunes. You guys put out a cerebral, yet oft times hilarious podcast.

  4. Crash and the Boys, just for reference, is the supertitle of the US Localized version of Bikkuri Nekketsu Shin Kiroku! Harukanaru Kin Meda, which translates very loosely to “The guys from River City Ransom in a Track and Field Game.”
