Manga and Child Hating
After a month’s hiatus (due to unforeseen circumstances), the on-location episode is back! And for the March visit to Valhalla Games and Comics, the topic is completely open. On this recording Derek is joined my several of the shop regulars including Craig, Matt, and Tristan. Among the many topics they cover are the recent Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad miniseries; the latest (and one of the best) X-Men films, Logan; the news surrounding the production of Star Trek: Discovery; and lots of manga talk. In fact, from the amount of time everyone discussed Japanese comics, it looked like this might turn into the month’s manga episode. Along the way the guys discuss Stephen Hillenburg (the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants) and his recently announced fight with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, legally permissible uses of the word “mutant,” Derek’s shame at being so behind on Marvel’s Netflix and Fox series, and Tristan’s utter dislike of children.

Right from the get go we learn two key things about the F BombCast that should be our motto and campaign slogan, We at the F BombCast are both Anti-Rape and Anti-Holocaust. Mike is losing his memory and Kevin level of self loathing has reached a new high. TJ’s annoyed at something but when the hell isn’t he. We discuss AMC’s plan to screw up the praise that The Walking Dead is getting, and our level of excitement for a new Hulk TV series on ABC. Thor: The Mighty Avenger is cancelled and Hike is… okay with it, huh?!?! And in an “effort” to gain new readers, Marvel has decided to fuck with the ones they already have. Comics are discussed, oh yes they are. Scarlet 3, Detective 869-870, DeadpoolMax and Deadpool Team up and more are all discussed. as well as THUNDER Agents and Supergirl Annual 2.
