FBBP #65 – Universal Resurrections

With Pedro risking his Dominican ass in Boston drinking Incredible Hulks, Chris, Jamaal and Joe discuss The Dark Knight. Seems like we miss having Pedro’s unabashed enthusiasm around, because we don’t really convey how much we all seriously enjoyed this excellent movie.

Ill-informed idle speculation about the current careers of Christopher Priest, Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri and Robert Kirkman included!
