Deconstructing Comics #577: Why do we like “bad futures”? w/Mark Hobby

Job Dun, Fat Assassin

For the past several decades there have been a lot of comics, movies, and other fiction involving “bad futures”, with lots of poverty, violence, environmental destruction, and the like. Why has this genre been so appealing to so many?

In this episode, Emmet O’Cuana talks with Mark Hobby about why this genre endures and how Mark has approached it in his own comic, Job Dun: Fat Assassin. They also discuss why British writers have led the pack on bad future stories, how Watchmen and the X-Men fit into the discussion, why sex in media seems to upset some people more than violence, and more.

F BombCast 142: Six Degrees of Jesus Christ

 

 

Mike is back with a vengeance. And it is the month of horror so of course that means a discussion of Blade Runner and Other Sci Fi awesomeness. Horror is finally gotten to and a rousing debate about how much Nightmare on Elm Street 2 either sucks or is awesome ensues. And this week TJ does find the ability to multitask and the comic section lives. Avengers, OMAC, Action Comics, and Pigs are all discussed. Sorry for the short intro, but i feel it does the job. Enjoy!
