FBBP #126 – Four Number Ones

As a follow-up to our theoretically award-eligible podcast Three Number Ones, Funnybook Babylon planned to look at Four Number Ones, the Billboard #1 singles on our respective birthdays!

Sadly, due to a quirk of fate, our birthdays are paired closely together, so we only have two number ones:

MacArthur Park” by Donna Summer (Chris & Jamaal)
Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes (Joseph & Pedro)

So we had to go with our backup plan: reviewing comics. I think we can all agree those are a couple of wretched songs; will the comics be any better?

FBBP #56 – No More Posse Cuts

Yeah, we are never doing a podcast like the last ones. 

Yeah, we are never doing a podcast like the last ones.

Batman can be nicer than you think and Pedro talks about the last issue of Checkmate. Archaia Studios Press attempts to steal our hearts from First Second. Jamaal discusses the merits of what has to be the best written collection of essays on the Legion of Superheroes. We then go into a recap of the con and also discuss Spurgeon and Neufield’s opinions of what NYCC should be like in the future. Also, learn about the Looming Shelving Concern and how it can affect you. We finish off with a word from Chris on why we need the CBLDF.
