iFanboy Mini – Episode #33 – It Came From the Storage Unit: Batman #334

Show Notes

In the first of a series of mini episodes, Conor has gone into his
storage unit and randomly selected a stack of comics in an attempt to
remember the stories just from studying the covers and attempting to
jog his addled memory. Will he be successful? The smart money says no,
but it will be fun watching him attempt to access parts of his comic
book reading brain that have layed dormant for years, and in some
cases, decades. First up is Batman #334 from April 1981. Will Conor be
defeated right out of the gate by a 27 year old comic book? There’s
only one way to find out!

    Great segment Conor–keep "From the Storage Unit" coming…can you film the segment in the actual storage unit? BTW–I see your comics are bagged and boarded…I seem to remember everyone giving Ron shit about baggin his comics…so does this mean that Ron has now been vindicated! Bag/Boarders unite!

  2. thisisegan thisisegan says:

    I really liked this, and am looking forward to these.  I kind of hope ron and Josh have a similar segment of some sort.  Keep up the great work on these minis guys.

  3. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @AlexG – I stopped bagging and boarding my comics about five years ago but that still leaves about 20 years worth of comics that are mostly bagged and boarded.

  4. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    That was awesome — I second AlexG in that I would love a video tour of the storage unit (though I suppose it’s probably poorly lighted and hard to see; i like the idea though!)

  5. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    I think you guys are gonna like tomorrow’s show too.

    But, just to give credit to my friend Conor here, this was excellent. 

  6. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @AlexG & ohcaroline – A glimpse of the storage room is definitely possible, but I wouldn’t shoot a whole show in there, it would look and sound horrible.

  7. torippu torippu says:

    What an excellent idea Conor!

    What’d also be fun would be to pull a book from the early Jemas/Quesada Marvel era and try to determine what is behind the cover.  Those "iconic" images that were thrown on each issue mean squat when trying to remember the danged story that you paid 3 bucks for! 

  8. Dex Dex says:

    This is a cool concept.  I don’t think I’d fare much better with my collection especially with the 20 year old comics. Good luck with the rest of your randon picks and I look forward to catching a glimps of your comics den.

    @Conor  I want to see a glimpse of the storage unit, just to see the wall of long boxes that I’m imagining in my head.  I’m looking foward to more episodes of It Came from the Storage Unit.  My favorite daily episode so far.  Loved the reactions on Conor’s face as he was reading each page.

  10. scherem scherem says:

    Wow. Thats my Birthday Batman issue.

  11. Eyun Eyun says:

    Dude, this was a great show, and an amazing idea for a series of shows. I too wanna see that storage facility.

    BQ: Why don’t you bag n board anymore? 

  12. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @Eyun – I find bags and boards, for the most part, a waste of time and money and space.

  13. Dan Dan says:

    Awesome idea and execution – I really dug the comment about the Twinkies ads – I loved those things (the ads, not the snack cakes). Not sure I could do much better, either – I’m verging on 20+ boxes, all packed to the gills, and I can barely remember stuff I read last week. Too much ‘experimenting’ in college, I guess.
