FBBP #87 – Ripped from Last Week’s Headlines

Happy Inauguration Day, everyone! Now that President-Elect Obama’s inspirational address has been delivered, we expect you’re primed to listen to more eloquent uplift. But if you’re tired of that sort of thing, why not check out this week’s FBB podcast?

is on everyone’s mind and we’re no exception, but we can’t let other Big Stories get lost in the swirl of Hope and Change: we also discuss Batman Actually I.P., and a fresh “Yes, This is Being Published” from two reliable purveyors of YTiBPs.

Check back later in the week for a belated birthday appreciation of Sam Kieth!


  1. Green Arrow’s stalker is named Cupid in the April solicits. Not offensively bad, but very very bland.

  2. It was Sam Kieth’s b-day? I was just flipping through the last couple issues of the Maxx over the weekend. Maybe I should actually finish reading Zero Girl and/or Four Women.

  3. I should correct myself on GA/BC:

    The current writer (Andrew Kreisberg) has never written for Heroes. He is currently working on Eli Stone, and before did a lot of other shows, including a brief run on the Simpsons.

    None of this makes me think GA/BC was a better or worse comic, but I was wrong.

    I was also wrong in identifying Andrew Robinson as the cover artist on GA/BC. It’s Ladronn. Both talented artists I’d love to see on titles I like more!

    Sorry for screwing things up that badly, I must have been blinded by SMASH!

  4. Norman Osborn started rehabilitating himself all the way back in Spider-Man before One More Day. His claim boils down to it wasn’t me and I have enemies and who trusts the word of that known criminal Spider-Man. He was convincing enough to get put in charge of the Thunderbolts and used that to make himself the hero of Secret Invasion.
