Call for Listener Questions

Filed under: Blurbs — Pedro Tejeda @ 10:14 pm

Dear Listeners,

Did you enjoy the Listener Questions segment of our hundredth episode? Did you hate it because we didn’t answer your question? Do you still have a burning question for Joe?

Well, you have another chance to ask questions in a new ongoing segment. You can leave a question in the comments, or dare to take advantage of innovative Web 2.5 technology and call in to the Funnybook Babylon Hotline!

(347) 548-8377

Assuming we can work out this Web 2.5 technology, we might just play your question “on the air”!


  1. Favourite books of the decade and why?

  2. Is there anything by Jeph Loeb from over the course of his entire comics career that any of you have enjoyed? If so what?

  3. What are your opinions concerning the whole Con War with NYCC and Big Apple? What are all of your best and worst memories of going to comic conventions? What were your opinions of the Watchmen movie? Do you all still pick up single issues or now mostly wait for the trade? Opinions of Marvel’s online comic subscription (assuming any of you have it)? Chris, what’s your favorite period of WWF or wrestling since you like to bring that into conversations sometimes? Which i enjoy. Finally, if I send you guys money to buy some beer will you review Age of Apocalypse, Heroes Reborn, Atlantis Attacks, and Inferno? Oh and the first issues of all the early Image stuff. Thanks guys for always putting up interesting podcasts and articles to listen to. I really liked the Planetary timeline Chris made.

  4. What are some of your favorite comedy comics and do you feel the genre is under-represented? If so, why/why not? (I recently read all of Matt Furie’s Boy’s Club and it was hilarious, that’s why I ask).

    Are you guys closet fanboys with people like co-workers or do you let your fanboy freak-flag fly with reckless abandon? At what point did you get over the traditional fanboy self-loathing or did you never have it in the first place?

  5. Echoing Fearing’s question somewhat, what’s the FBB crowd’s take on The Long Halloween and Dark Victory, arguably the most well received Loeb comics? Do they contain seeds of problems that would later metastasize, or do y’all think they stand (or fall) independently of Loeb’s recent, erm, issues?

  6. I have a question about Ambush Bug: Year None. With the series ending on Ambush Bug leaving to avoid the mess Dan Didio made of things, who would you say the joke is really on and did the series “work” as a revival of the old Ambush Bug concept?

  7. I asked this of the Savage Critics podcast, but I’m curious as to what FB’s response will be-

    Crying Superheroes:Threat or menace?

    -What books from this decade do you feel were most toxic/damaging/embarrassing?

    -What books really showed what the medium is capable of/were the most enjoyable?

    -Where do you think comics are going in the next decade?

    -What comics (from any era)do you feel are most overlooked?

  8. […] Funnybook Babylonians want you to call in and leave obscene messages listener mail. Ask question, share an anecdote, and they might just play it on the show. Tell them I sent […]

  9. What’s your favorite era (golden age, silver, etc) of comics and why? Does it change depending on the publisher (i.e. Bronze Age Marvel, but Silver Age DC)?

  10. This could easily be the topic of discussion for an entire podcast, but my question is about Marvel Time.

    [A history and discussion of the concept is provided here:

    In short, my question is: do you have a problem with the fact that – since 1973 – no Marvel characters have been allowed to age or die (and stay dead), even though the Marvel Universe at large keeps pace with real time (as opposed to itself being frozen in the early-to-mid-’70s)?

    [And as an easier, back-up question: what is your favorite “What If…?” story? (And if you don’t have one, just talk about the shame that you feel over neglecting the series.)]
