The Fourth Wall Comics Podcast #6

The boys dip their toes into some intellectual waters this episode.

Topics of discussion: revisionist history in regards to Cold War aggressors; Television, Comic Books, and the difference between utilizing the strengths of one medium in regards to another and just straight up copying one medium to another and not respecting how one audience experiences it opposed to the other; and that age old debate between Diversity and Xenophobia in the comics medium.

Going deep this week.

F BombCast 140: FBC the Butch

Here it is folks, The Month of Horror Begins and quite frankly i think this leads to one of our greatest discussions ever in the history of our show. We talk Hammer, We talk Midnight Movie, We Talk Scream, Horror Comedy like Young Frankenstein and Ghostbusters II, American Werewolf in London is here too. And then we get into the meat of the episode with a discussion of Last House on the Left and whether or not it is actually horror. Some comics are discussed but frankly it doesn’t matter as the reason for our existence this month is Horror.

Cammy’s Comic Corner – Geeky Talky – Episode 91

Photobucket

In this special episode I give my thoughts on the first half of the New 52 Comics from DC. I help you decide which titles you should be spending your money on, and which you should drop like a hot potato. No worries though, I’ll continue reading all of them so you don’t have to! Slight spoilers, nothing radical though.
