FBBP #79 – Tomorrow Never Lies

Filed under: Podcasts — Tags: , , , , , , , — Joseph Mastantuono @ 12:40 pm

This week’s two man show brings you another Jeph Loeb Happy Hour and a look at some of the recent spate of Mod comics. We’ve only got Joseph and Chris for this episode, as Pedro was in Boston checking to see racism is really over while Jamaal got an application ready for these guys.

And while last week’s historic election marked the end of Senator John McCain’s quest to become President, we here at FBB would like to offer Senator McCain a new position: the visual representation of our comic reviews.

The Man of At Least Six Faces

This week we looked at Dave Gibbons’s The Originals, Chynna Clugston’s Scooter Girl and Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie’s Phonogram.

Plus, Chris presented another Jeph Loeb Happy Hour about the debut issue of his Marvel event, Ultimatum. The JLHH is slowly moving into Barfly range.

Warning: the talk devolves into a James Bond theme song discussion 107 minutes in. Yes, the podcast is that grotesquely long and rambling.

FBBP #71 – Back to School with a Song

Jamaal is back and it’s time for him to pay the piper! What song must he sing? Stay tuned to the end, true believers!

In the spoken word portion of the podcast, we discuss the new Secret Six, Marvel Apes and Sub-Mariner: The Depths mini-series, and spin off into a larger discussion of Depths author Peter Milligan’s other recent series Infinity Inc. and The Programme. Milligan has built up a lot of goodwill with series like X-Statix, Human Target and Shade the Changing Man, but how do his newer books stack up? Listen and learn!

Finally, our resident canary in the mineshaft Chris has decided to join the MARCH ON ULTIMATUM, and gives a recap of Aron Coliete’s initial Ultimate X-Men arc. In this metaphor, the canary has died and had its corpse repeatedly defiled.
