April 21, 2014 12:53 pm Hey Birds, thanks for coming to my defense. I always appreciate it when someone looks out for me. BUT...
That being said, I took their reaction just as I believe it was intended: some good natured ribbing. I mean, think about how often the co-hosts make fun of each other on this show. If anything, having your chops busted "on the air" should make you feel even MORE like a friend. As you can tell, I've thought about this a lot...like at least 5-6 hours.
April 21, 2014 9:21 am Thanks for playing my voicemail! I'll be sure to check out that Mark Waid run, and I guess I'll just bite the bullet and pick up the Brubaker stuff as well. And that WW2 set book sounds AMAZING.
AND HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER ME? Remember when we were 12 years old, riding bikes around our small town as wel grew up together in the 1960's? We even fought that giant spider/inter-dimensional shapeshifting clown demon? No?
September 3, 2013 12:01 pm When I heard that Josh would be leaving the Make Comics podcast, I had a feeling something like this might be around the corner.
In 2005, I had just gotten married. Started saving to buy a house, making peanuts while living on Long Island (of all places). I had to cut stuff out of my budget, and comics were one of the first things to go. But I wanted to keep up with what was going on in the industry. I figured a weekly review podcast could help.
I tried several. iFanboy was the only one that could stand. In fact, it was Josh, Ron and Conor's intelligent opinions that made me think of comics more critically, to the point where I started thinking "hell, maybe even *I* could making comics". So here I am, 2013, with a few published shorts under my belt, and upcoming fill-in issue spot at a small publisher, and a Kickstarter that is doing modestly well.
NONE OF THIS would be possible without ALL the iFanboy Family. I never would have cared enough about comics to give this a go, if it wasn't for your humor, taste, and enthusiasm. Thank you all so much.

May 28, 2013 12:31 pm From what I understand, the "race" to get Quicksilver (and Scarlet Witch, I suppose) is that whoever uses them first gets rights to those characters. So could Fox sue Disney over breach of contract should Whedon use them after First Class 2? Or maybe slap them with a licensing fee?
I also wonder if Whedon may slip Quicksilver into an early episode of the new Shield show. Or maybe a last minute cameo in the Thor movie coming out this fall. That could be a clever way to head Fox off at the pass.
Personally I'd love for a Ray Nicolette situation to take place. Michael Keaton played the character Ray Nicolette in both Jackie Brown and Out of Sight. Those films were made by two entirely disconnected filmmakers, and produced/distributed by two completely different studios. Maybe if Fox/Disney can come up with some compromise, we could have the same actor in this situation as well... imagine the good will this would foster with the fans!
