F BombCast 109: Nipples on Hairy backs

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.

F BombCast 105: Khunds and ‘Staches

To surprise all of you looking at the comic podcast network, We actually start the show talking about comics. Fraction’s Thor and Glass’s Thor are discussed as is Neil Diamond, as he should always be. X Men and Vampires are like Peanut Butter and Chocolate, and Fool me once shame on you Fool me seven times Same on me, Try it one last time, and you get Gold, IN his eighth attempt to try something by Rick Remender, Kevin is in love with Uncanny X-Force. The Khunds are coming, The Khunds are coming, Better get your tampons and pads ready. REBELS is talked about as is the New Freedom Fighters. and SLGs Royal Historian of OZ is talked about. Then the Horror, oh the Horror. Is Nightmare the Elm Street a slasher? We say no. Two quick insta fives are completed with best and Worst Horror Sequels.

Due to libsyn problems it is not on iTunes as of me typing that, but it is here and on

Deconstructing Comics #246: Examining Bendis

BendisBrian Michael Bendis has been the dominant writer at Marvel for a number of years now. While his books — including Ultimate Spider-man, New Avengers, Avengers, and event books like Seige — sell well, they have also generated a fair amount of controversy and just plain complaints. Some people like his work, others don’t. For Tim, there have been high points, but much of it is just kind of there. Is it just me, he wonders? Is Bendis actually a good writer and just doesn’t always appeal to me? Or are there identifiable inadequacies in his work? Tim calls on a Bendis fan — Savannah College of Art & Design student and graphic novelist Josh Smith — and a Bendis critic — Comics Waiting Room columnist Vincent Moore — to discuss the phenomenon that is Bendis.

Sidekickcast Episode #45 - The Triumphant Return of Dr Strange-Creek

This week we bid farewell to Ned as Second Coming comes to an end, so Mikey Bumchin pops in to say bye along with Sidekickcast regular hosts Dan Marshall and Gavin Jones. There’s some more guerilla marketing going on and an unusual method employed to discuss the news from San Diego Comic Con 2010.

For Stack Attack we read Scarlet #1, Batman #701, Daredevil #508, The Thanos Imperative #2, Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1, X-Force: Sex and Violence #1 and X-Men: Second Coming #2.

There’s a twist for this week’s Secrets and Lies, to say anymore would spoil the fun. No Knowing Me, Knowing You but it will pick back next with Scott Pilgrim vol.1. Fear no as we do have Mike taking a look at Elephant Men vol.1 in Dig This! Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the stuff that got cut and if you realy do have to see Gavin in his Deadpool outfit then click here, it ain’t pretty!
