FBBP #118 – We Like Comics

Sometimes our tough love strikes listeners as a little too tough. We’re sensitive to concerns about our negativity — and our tendency to ramble on — and so here we have a brief conversation where each of us describe a recent comic we’ve genuinely enjoyed.

Want to be spoiled? Our picks lie below!

Jamaal likes: Beasts of Burden by Evan Dorkin & Jill Thompson
Joseph likes: Invincible Iron Man by Matt Fraction & Salvador LaRocca
Chris likes: Vigilante #11 by Marv Wolfman, Walt Simonson & John Paul Leon
Pedro likes: Spider-Man Family: Back in Black by Sean McKeever, Kano, David LaFuente & Others


  1. The way I’ve always felt things was Joseph and Pedro being the more positive guys, that like more mainstream stuff, Chris the old-school guy that likes Marvel and DC, but “those were the days”, and Jamaal hates everything haha.

    This podcast was great, showing your particular tastes. Two thumbs up.

  3. I like the mix of podcast lengths you guys have been doing lately. The long Planetary discussion was good, and on the whole I prefer the longer podcasts, but this bite-sized podcast worked also. Good stuff as always.

  4. I agree about the shorter podcasts — they’re a nice change of pace.

    Meanwhile, as Thanksgiving approaches, bringing with it two simultaneous chapters of DC’s big event, I wonder: Are any of you guys subjecting yourselves to Blackest Night and Green Lantern? (I choose that verb because I know you pretty much dissed the first issue.) If you’re still reading, do you think your early assessment holds out, or is it improving? (I’m actually loving Green Lantern, which is where we’re getting the War of Light that seemed so hastily subverted by the attack of the undead in the main miniseries.)
