FBBP #130 – Daytripper Reviewed

Posted by Chris Eckert, Jamaal Thomas and Joseph Mastantuono on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010 at 08:18:35 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!

Avenging the Week, pt. 3 – In Memory Of… Edition

Posted by Jamaal Thomas on Sunday, April 25th, 2010 at 08:12:37 PM

In this trife life, there ain’t nobody you can trust
Plus, there’s no justice, it’s just us
In fact, watching your back, it be a must
And each and every day around the way gats bust
And jealous so-called friends will try to set you up, it’s called betrayal

-Keith Elam, a/k/a/ GURU, Betrayal

Loki shall have battle with Heimdallr, and each be the slayer of the other. Then straightway shall Surtr cast fire over the earth and burn all the world; so is said in Völuspá.

-Glyfaginning (English translation) , a depiction of Ragnarok.
