FBBP #125 – Geoff! Jeff! Jeff!

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , , — Chris Eckert @ 9:57 am

The Funnybook Babylon Podcast is back at full power and looking at a trio of books written by a trio of homophonic dudes!

Yes, This is Being Published: Brightest Day #1 (DC) by Geoff Johns, Peter Tomasi and a Big Bag of Artists

Underground (Image Comics) by Jeff Parker & Steve Lieber (collected edition out this week)

Sweet Tooth Volume 1: Out of the Woods (DC/Vertigo) by Jeff Lemire (collected edition also out this week)

This was a happy accident, the Trio of [Geo/J]effs, and one we may follow up on in the future. What show would you guys like to see? The Briancast? The Petercast? The Sarahcast? The Bongcast? Let us know!

The problem’s not that its ‘hard to recommend most comics’, but that there is a lot of amazing work that’s continually being released or republished or waiting to be discovered. In a cluttered marketplace, no one has six months.

  4. I’m now going to buy issues 4-6 of Sweet Tooth. I gave up after issue 3 for precisely the reasons Jamaal outlined.

    Thematic randomness is yet another problem I have with the man Johns’ comics.

  5. […] Funnybook Babylon returns to look back on the work of Jeff Lemire! We reviewed Sweet Tooth back in Episode #125 and were divided on its relative quality, but after two additional volumes we are united: […]
