FBBP #94 – Back in the Air

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , — Chris Eckert @ 3:00 pm

FBB is back on a new server, hopefully everything’s migrated properly. Let us know if you experience any malfunctions.

The meat of this podcast revisits the work of G. Willow Wilson, particularly her Vertigo series Air. The “Try it For a Dollar” seventh issue drops tomorrow, with the bargain-priced first collection headed to stores next week.

We also rummage around in the Marvel/DC newsbin, and Chris formally endorses Maintaining Bohemia over at Zuda. That’s right, someone actually slogged through the Zuda interface!

Plus a Jeph Loeb Happy Hour drive-by on the subject of cannibalism!

FBBP #68 – Out of Nowhere…

With Pedro and Jamaal doing adult things, we brought in a ringer. Jon Bernhardt came up from Baltimore to chat about the first issue of Air, G. Willow Wilson & M.K. Perker’s new Vertigo ongoing.

Then, a surprise visitor arrived just in time for our discussion of Captain America #41 by Ed Brubaker & Steve Epting. I bet if you whisper “Captain America” three times in your bathroom mirror, Pedro will show up at your house too, looking for beer.

Ever since I started grad school, I haven’t been able to go to many events in the city. But with school out this week, I had some spare time and noticed a posting on G. Willow Wilson’s blog about a talk she was giving and decided to check it out. I’m glad I did, because I had a blast. The panel was held in one of NYU’s swanky meeting rooms, and while they had free pizza and drinks, I had to go to dinner right afterwards, so I passed.

I took a seat on the left side of the room, which would apparently turn out to be the comics side of the audience, as the talk was sponsored by the Muslim Student Association, which was what brought in most of the attendees.
