Lincoln, The Civil War, Mark Twain, Spawn, and Ron Marz; What do these things have in common? Fuck if I know, but it made for a very entertaining and enlightening podcast. We start with some history that may or may not have been taught to you in school, the subject is a passion of both me and kevin, so please bear with us. We then lead into book censorship, which brings us to Rambo, yeah if you don’t think we have ADD than HEY WHAT IS THAT? oh right, we talk some action movies, and the spawn animated show. Batgirl helps explain the history of batman…with stick figures, and poor Ernie just wants to get away from General Glory. Ron Marz wants to shit on the people that buy his comics, Axel Alonzo acts like he was the guiding force at Vertigo. Finish it up with a little Manga and whether or not Daken hates the chicken and that is what I call podcast gold.

Kevin is a big fat lousy quitter, as is Mike, But fear not fellow F Bombers, TJ is hanging in there to experience the Cancer that you all crave. San Diego Comic Con just finished up and Kevin Regales you with all the News that is as boring as shit. (Not Kevin’s Fault, nothing really exciting came out.) It does spawn a lengthy conversation where our heroes discuss the possibility of a a Watchmen sequel and who should write it. TJ is on a murdered Kid kick and discusses Lovely Bones as well as Gone Baby Gone and the trailer for the Greatest Ensemble cast Film is discussed, Machete. Monkey Boy breaks out some English lit and we discuss the books that made us love our childhood as well as the ones that made those High School days just a little bit longer. We end up with a kevin insta-Five of top five ended or cancelled Comic Books that we wish would be revived.
I quickly start things off quoting the awesomeness that is Transformers. Yes, I’m still playing the game. I then give you that Predators review I promised along with what makes a good and bad sequel and the directions they can go in.
Since San Diego Comic-Con just wrapped up, there’s plenty of news this week. A lot of it is sad when dealing with the best imprint out there. I finish the show talking about the soon to finish Air: Pureland (G. Willow Wilson, M.K. Perker).
** As promised there IS a show!**
