ARP – 09 – Knightfall part 2

DC comics published Knightfall in 1993 in Batman and Detective Comics. This story is one of the most famous Batman stories and we were excited to read and discuss this. In this episode, we talk about the key players (Batman, Bane, Robin, and Azrael) as well as the choices the writers made in telling the story.

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)
