CBMFP 256: Self-Sharping Machette

It's been a long weekend. You may have noticed that ComicBastards.com was down for most of that weekend so while this was recorded not that long ago, everything we talked about has since left my brain. There's movie news with Mera and Logan, not together, but you know... that would be a killer crossover. Also the Harvey Awards and Killer Clowns.

CBFMP 255: Even I Have My Limits

It's NYCC time, which used to be a happy time... now it's just a con I used to know (fuck you Justin for getting that song stuck in my head forever!). How are you? I ask that because that's how Warren Ellis writes his newsletters and he's in charge of WildStorm now! That's at the end, though, we start with Power Rangers and Logan. Lion Forge makes big moves and there's other actual comic news to come from NYCC. I know. Comic news on a comic podcast, what will we think of next?

CBMFP 254: We’re All Eating Chemicals

Hey we're back, and we have stuff to talk about... and only some of it is comics because fuck... there's just no comic news worth talking about. Still. We do talk about this comic book coats; that's cool. Then we move over to Wonder Woman's sexuality that's a thing worth discussing, we guess. Then Arrow news of sorts, but mostly we talk about the Stephen Amell's dirty little side business of kissing fans asses and why he does that!

CBMFP 253: Shared Universe

There's a weird hiccup at the beginning that couldn't be fixed. It's over quickly so don't worry about it too much. After that we discuss more nerd suits, that's right, nerds are taking over fashion... or are they? Ghost in the Shell released some teaser things, and we address what they kind of are. DC's writer program announced the class of 2016 or something. It's a fellowship of sorts, let's get over the whole school thing. There's more TV talk as well, including the season premiere of Agents of Shield. Exciting.

CBMFP 252: Mellow Your Sweetness

There's so little news this week that it's not even worth teasing. We didn't acknowledge Batman day either because it's stupid. We did talk about "Tactical Batman" and Jim Gordan's reveal in Justice League the movie. Also, the Superhero Beat Down featuring two Valiant characters has us excited. Probably the only real news is Sonny Liew breaking down how much it costs to make a comic and live off of grants which is pretty damn interesting.

CMBPF 251: Hot Cherry Coke

No laughs today on the CBMFP as we get serious! Nah, there's some humor, but we do talk about Comic Book Roundup and what it's done to the industry and a pretty deep conversation about All-Star Batman and everything tied to that. And that's not even the top of the mountain as we answer Patrick's question about underrated comic book movies.

CBMFP 250: A Dog In This Race

We reached 250! Whip your dicks out, you veens out, whatever you got down there and give it a tug or a flick in celebration for the CBMFP reaching 250! Now if you're done being gross, we have comics to talk about. Stan Lee finally tells us who he thought was a terrible, horrible, no good casting for one of his characters, followed by Squirrel Girl getting her own TV show called New Warriors. Not to be outdone, DC announced a Black Lighting TV show in the works! Marvel also announces a bunch of fucking monster books that are sure to sell well in October and is the direct market for comics broken and in need of some blowing up? Oh and we talk about The Tick again... because fuck you 250! We do what we want!

CBMFP 249: They Still Had Feet

Well kids, it's another week and another week of audio problems. Thank Google fucking Hangouts for this mess, the messy turds. At any rate, we have a special guest on this week as we welcome Patrick Larose to the show! He's brought a dozy of a question for us to answer, but first we start off with news because that's how we roll. Bryan Singer says that Legion is connected to the X-Men movie's timeline and that's weird stuff. Rob Liefeld is bringing Youngblood back again and hey... the title should tell you everything. Doctor Strange underwent some comedic rewrites and we'll talk about what the possibly means for the movie along with some more comic movie related news.

CBMFP 248: So You Could Stop Ripping Off His Shit

We've got a special treat for you today, Justin Wood! That's right those other two dudes couldn't be here this week, but join Dustin and Justin (ustin's in the house!) as they tackle the new Tick show on Amazon! Moving over to some Spider-Man world news including the casting of MJ, though we saw no controversy with it and completely missed the fact that of course, the internet was shitting their pants over it.  Runaways the TV show heading to Hulu of all places and some video game news about the next Metal Gear game... it sounds pleasant.

CBMFP 247: We’re Coming Back For Love

Today we've got the gruesome threesome back in the house. That's right, Kevin, Steve and Dustin gather around the internet talk about the latest in comic and comic book movies. Mostly the latter. First it's the possible casting for the Crow reboot movie. Then a bunch of CW news happens, a musical, Kevin Smith, The Ray, Supergirl... I'm sure there's plenty of more CW stuff. We also discuss Marvel's Civil War II's delays because it's that slow of a news week. We answer one question that we've previously covered on this show so buckle up for the last time and find out who's a Betty and who's a Veronica.
