With one bomber having audio troubles and another going to a dinner with celebrities, the f bombcast needed to run a repeat this week. The Full Monty Folks, Here and Waving our geek Flag proudly. Psst, Did you know there was a thing called Breast Cancer? If not let me just say WooHoo I just raised your awareness. A discussion of the direction of DC comics post Blackest Night as well as about event burnout in general. A bunch a really good movies are discussed: The Kite Runner, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, Some Dungeons and Dragons Flick Mike watched, Drag Me to Hell, A Haunting in Connecticut. Then the boys get all philosophical on two movies that really no one should ever get philosophical about ever: Doomsday and They Live. The Musical INfatuation lives as we hear a god awful indie song by Kevin but since it is about Steve McQueen it automatically becomes cool, Kamelot from Mike, and Dream Theater from TJ. Comics Round out this table of geekery with: Stumptown, House of Mystery, and Godland.
In this episode, I’m joined by Art and Jesse from The Fourth Wall Comics Podcast to talk about Blackest Night (DC) and Siege (Marvel). What worked for both events, favorite tie-ins, and the future events for both publishers.
Once upon a time in a far away land there were three princes; Prince Dan Charming, Bonny Prince Bones and the artist formally known as X-Centric Prince Ned. Together these princes formed a merry band of Sidekicks and set out into the wide world to spread the word of las comicas. Listen in as they tell tales of their upcoming adventures as far as the wetsern port city of Bristol for the Bristol International Comic and Small Press Expo to present a panel with the mighty pen-man of The Dark; Chris Lynch. Ok I’m growing tired of this Fables speak, so I’ll just say we also talk about upcoming stuff on the site and learn the rules of the comic book fashion club.
In Stack Attack this week we take a look at Invincible Iron Man #25, The New Avengers Finale, Siege #4, The Sentry: Fallen Sun, Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #1, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis #1, X-Force #26, Uncanny X-Men #524, X-Men Second Coming Revelations: Hellbound #1 and X-Factor #204.
We focus on comic book movies in Secrets and Lies; the comic book news quiz with a twist where you’re the detective, sniffing out the carefully crafted misinformation. Our Knowing Me, Knowing You choice for Dan this week is Matt Fraction and Gabriel Ba’s Casanova and we finally take a look at Fables for Dig This! Don’t forget to listen past the outro music for the classic out-takes.
Cammy (from Cammy’s Comic Corner) joins the gang once again to discuss why Daytripper is most beautifully despressing comic currently on stands, why Emma Frost’s boobs are the true star of Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis, and why The Punisher uses such strange shotgun intimidation techniques…and all that Siege and Bruce Wayne stuff too!
