  1. HBD HBD says:

    I haven’t listened to the show yet, but I was going to comment that the weekly podcast’s show notes and comments need to be more prominent on the front page, and then I noticed the link was hidden under an errant Adblock button!  Off I go to listen to some iFanboy goodness!

  2. Ron Richards ron (@ronxo) says:

    @HBD turn off ad block ;)

  3. HBD HBD says:

    I’m trying to disable it for iFanboy, but I need it running for some sites.  Digg for example, has some of the most annoying ads ever.

  4. HBD HBD says:

    There we go.  Hey look, I can buy Smax for only $6.38! :D

  5. Ron Richards ron (@ronxo) says:

    we appreciate your support HBD!

  6. g0ofgnewt g0ofgnewt says:

    I’m confused…is Netflix still a sponsor? Is Josh leaving? I need answers or if not that then a damn bow!

  7. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    Yes and yes.  No, wait… I mean, yes and no.

    I’m confused. 

  8. Eyun Eyun says:

    You’re confused if Josh is leaving???

     Don’t leave, Josh, I’ve nearly finished Preacher!!!!!!

  9. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    Where the hell am I gonna go?

  10. HBD HBD says:

    To the top!

  11. jestergoblin jestergoblin says:

    great episode.


    two new rules to ifanboy drinking came:

    whenever strippers are mentioned, take a shot.

    whenever josh hates something/someone, take a shot. 

  12. g0ofgnewt g0ofgnewt says:

    Jester: That’s going to get me more drunk than the Iron Chef drinking game!

  13. Thomas Katers ThomasKaters says:

    In the tradition of Judy from Family Matters…Josh will walk upstairs and never be seen again.

  14. HBD HBD says:

    @Josh, RE: Godland

    I picked up issues 1-20, loved them all, and will be getting #21 this week!

  15. SteveM SteveM says:

    IMHO, I thought X-Force was a pretty good start (art and story).  Just my thoughts.

  16. electricyoda electricyoda says:

    Great show this week. I really dig the new Trade of the Month addition. I’m way more into reading trades than single ishs. I like the video show because of it’s focus on trades. It’s just not as easy for me to pick up single ishies and it can be kind of expensive. Where as trades I can resell when I’m done. I’m not much of a collector. I just like reading the stories and looking at the art.

    How’s about talking about a trade every episode? Love the shiz-ow.
