Show Notes

December 5, 2010 – We'll be honest, this is a wacky one. Ron's amped up, Josh talks endlessly, and Conor's got a cloud over his head in this week where not too many books purchased by our heroic three.  Can 8 books each provide enough fodder for an entire show? YOU DECIDE!

    Gremlins!

  2. Ilash Ilash says:

    Man, miserable Conor is almost as funny as drunk Conor.

  3. Gramercy Gramercy says:

    best christmas song ever

  4. k5blazer k5blazer says:

    Wildcats 3.0…ah what could have been…

  5. SirCox SirCox says:

    Great show! Hilarious as always.

    BUT SERIOUSLY RON? You don’t think Busiek/Perez’s Avengers run is acclaimed? That’s like the premiere Avengers run that everyone always mentions. Marvel needs to omnibus that asap.

  6. AlanRob AlanRob says:

    Woo Hoo!  I finally get to listen to an up to date podcast after FINALLY catching up on all of my books this week and a marathon of podcast listening.  

    Incidentally I found out during an eight hour drive Wednesday that I won Conor’s Mystery Longbox! Awesome!

    Cant wait to listen when I get home.

  7. NathanNicdao NathanNicdao says:

    last year you guys used Death Cab’s version. Nice.

  8. iSpiderMan says:

    There’s a reason why event comics get published: they sell. Diggle & Johnston are terrible on DD & Shadowland that’s why I jumped off that derailed train four issues into their DD run & two issues into Shadowland. You bought DD & Shadowland even though it sucks ninja Hand balls.

  9. I have to wait until wednesday to listen to this. I got Irredeemable #20 this week, but I need to wait until vol. 5 collectin up to #19 comes out next week before I read it.

  10. WTarkington WTarkington says:

    Baltimore has both hands :)

  11. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    @WTarkington  Details!

  12. robbydzwonar robbydzwonar says:

    GEEEZZ, what a sucky week.  I don’t even wanna bother listening this week…

  13. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    Conor, it’s not your fault.

  14. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    Listen to me, son.  It’s not your fault.

  15. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    It’s not your fault.

  16. RavagerWolf says:

    Actually Ron, in febuary Marvel will be collecting the venom/deadpool back up into one issue for 2.99.  So you don’t need to buy all of those what ifs

  17. @RavagerWolf Really? That’s actually good to know. I didn’t pick up the Iron Man What If? (LCS didn’t have it). But I wouldn’t mind double dipping if the back-up is good. 

  18. Just to let everyone know, David Liss is writing the Black Panther: Man Without Fear comic.

    He did the ‘Daring Mystery Comic’ for Marvel when they were doing the 70th Anniversary one-shots. That was a great one shot if you get your hands on it. 

  19. bigben2012 says:

    Nice to see that The Darkness got a mentioned on the Podcast.

  20. MadMartigan MadMartigan says:

    I love this show, and I listen EVERY week, but what a downer episode.  I hope you appreciate the honesty.

  21. fx434 says:
    No love for Ant-Man & Wasp
  22. NathanNicdao NathanNicdao says:

    Yeah downer. Fun still, but downer. (aww)

  23. ANT-MAN and KingCity! GET ON THE BALL!

  24. GeenL1996 GeenL1996 says:

    nice podcast i read my first fantastic four book this week and loved it i think 587 is coming out what issue can i jump in from to read the end of this ff story eg 586 – 587 ?????? 

  25. I was looking right at my Gotham Central books when Josh mentioned them in the email question. Spooky!

    By the way, youse guys missed out American Vampire in the show notes. :)

  26. OttoBott OttoBott says:

    DrCatclops wins. Best review ever.

  27. CaseyJustice CaseyJustice says:

    As regards cancelled comics that I loved: Young Justice and Slingers were the first 2 that really hit me hard.

  28. OttoBott OttoBott says:

    @CaseyJustice  Awwwww…Slingers…haven’t thought about that comic in a while.

  29. Random question: Is there a way to join iFanboy without using paypal?

  30. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    @anthonyscribner  You can pay through paypal with a regular credit card, but that’s the best way for us to handle payments.

  31. Cooleo says:

    If you have comic you don’t want connect me Ill take them.
