F BombCast 108: For the Love of Richard Marx

What a show! We learn a deep dark Secret about a long time listener, Monkeyboy. Saw 3D is as much fun as watching humans getting tortured can be, and Nimoy proves yet again that Yes he is a god, especially when he is paired off with the fabulously wonderful Jeff Goldblum. Walking Dead is spoken of more and we will enlighten you on what makes a zombie a zombie. Episode two will be next week, due to a co host not having the ability to record shows. Comics are discussed a lot; Special Agent Zero, Superboy 1, Sickness in the Familly, The Beginning of the Jason Aaron Ghost Rider Run, Vertigo Resurrected 1 (Shoot Specifically), and Spiderman 647. And last but not least we learn that Joe Q and Douchetastic Tom Brevoort believe that all their fans are morons. A press release and Junket is done for the the addition of Red Hulk into the avengers, yet none is done for a price drop, since Marvel doesn’t do press releases for everything, BS!!! (and in true f bombcast fashion this episode contains 100% no richard marx)
