I’ve spent entirely too much time on a post I hope to have up on Tuesday, but in preparing it I stumbled upon something amazing. Hoping to find photos of that scary looking Chapel cosplayer that went around to signings with Rob Liefeld back in the 1990s, I dug up the copy of Extreme Studios Tourbook 1993 that I somehow own. Do not judge me, dear reader, because I discovered so much more:

FBBP #131 – The NYCC Tapes, 2010

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , — Chris Eckert @ 2:25 pm

Another New York Comicon has come and gone.

When the first NYCC happened, Funnybook Babylon was but a glimmer in the Internet’s eye!
At the second NYCC, Chris met Joseph and Jamaal for the first time, and the FBB Podcast began!
From the third NYCC was borne a horrifying beast, the FBB Posse Cut, never to be repeated.
The fourth NYCC saw future Fourcast maestro David Brothers sit in on a show.

And now, eighteen months — and somehow only forty-one episodes — later, Chris, Jamaal, and Joseph once again welcome special Con guest stars: Batmannotator Supreme David Uzumeri and New Jersey’s Favorite Son Gavin “Gavok” Jasper!

FBBP #130 – Daytripper Reviewed

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , — Chris Eckert @ 8:18 am

If you’ve been reading Avenging the Week — and if not, why not? — you know how much Jamaal loved Daytripper, the recent Vertigo mini-series from Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon.  Now, you can listen to all four of us take a crack at heaping praise at it. Sorry for the spoilers, but we all loved it. Go buy it. Then listen to the podcast. Then go pick up the brothers’ sweet-looking new book Atelier at the New York Comic Con this weekend. Unless it’s about to sell out, then make sure we all have our copies. Then buy it.

But yeah, Daytripper is great. Dave Stewart’s coloring was great too! See everyone at the con!
