    This was classic wolverine action that reminded me of the short stories of the early issues in Marvel Comics Presents…

    This arc started pretty good, lost some steam in the middle, and then came to an end which left me…

    This comic was a definite “let me pick it up and see” book, and did it surprise.  Consensus is that…

    July 6, 2015 10:28 am The Arsenal/cat/drugs/rough sex comic was written by JT Krul and not James Robinson. It holds up - still really, really bad.

    September 3, 2013 5:27 pm I first heard about iFanboy when Jonathan London mentioned you all on Geekdrome (now Geekscape). That was like right around the time of the Revision 3 launch party in San Francisco. I started listening to the podcast - and it was epic. 3 people that were friends but with differing opinions about comics talking and joking - it was great to be a fly on the wall. And it was all that I needed and more. It was the like the idealized "comic book store chatter" that some folks get to participate in, but that most don't have access to. Did I mention it was epic? Over the years, the website grew, the vidcasts (is that the word?) came and went (and came and went), but the podcast always remained and always was the one thing I always could make time for. Like with your own busy lives and the roadblocks to producing content, there is only so much time to consume content, and the piles of unread comics next to my desk speak to that. But just as before, the podcast is all I need - and remains epic. And I thank you. So if the podcast is continuing, then "the king is dead, long live the king," because to me, the pick of the week podcast has always been the best thing. So thanks again for all of the "extras" you have given us, and thank you for all that you still do. [Should the podcast end, that would be terrible.]
    August 7, 2013 12:04 pm Wow, I can't believe I just read a review for a DC Animated movie that included the following statements: " It was certainly an ambitious event, but then so was the Children’s Crusade. That’s harsh, probably." " I was deeply affected and convinced that Barry needed to remedy this dire status quo, but it’s such an accomplished feat that I’m reluctant to revisit this movie any time soon. It’s the Requiem for a Dream conundrum." Full disclaimer, I liked the movie a lot more than most DC Animated movies - I give it a 4. Flashpoint always seemed to me to be a DC attempt at Days of Futures Past - and who doesn't like dystopian timelines? Most revere Dark Knight Returns. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you mean the Avenger's miniseries - Childrens' Crusade - which I admit, had great art but some head scratchers. I am not an expert in the history of religious crusades, but if this is meant to indicate that the "new 52" initiative should be likened to disputed historical events depicting the poor and children striking forth on a failed "peaceful crusade" to bring Christianity to the Muslim people, that is harsh. As to the comparison to the Requiem for a Dream "conundrum" - everyone I know also feels the same way about that movie, can't watch it again because the ending is horrifying - SPOILERS - people lose limbs, lose their freewill, and are forced to perform grotesquely and graphicly depicted sex acts for drugs. Honestly, that is a bit harsh of a comparison to re-watching a DC Animated movie.
    August 7, 2013 11:19 am You gotta mean Judas Contract - who would be the target market for a Suicide Squad/Checkmate crossover from the 80s? Admittedly, it would be cool.
    May 1, 2012 2:14 pm Looks like a great convention and the accessibility to creators seems to be incredible. I hope the show works out well! My only dig is the price - I think even the cheapest rate (499) is gonna be a huge barrier to entry for folks these days.
    February 23, 2012 1:58 pm Will iFanboy have a table at ImageExpo or do any events/meet ups on Saturday?
    October 7, 2011 10:48 am How about a Deadpool/Aquaman team-up where they talk to fish...together! That sounds like it should be in your wheelhouse and get you on bandwagon.
    October 7, 2011 10:43 am That's so clever!
    September 6, 2011 2:48 pm I like Deadpool comics. I like comic books. I think Fabian Nicieza's take on the character is definitive, and Joe Kelly's Deadpool #11 was hilarious (even nominated for a Harvey Award). I like that the Deadpool comics use to show that Deadpool was friends with Bullseye, and that he could beat up Batroc the Leaper and hogtie him with a "ducky lamp." It's funny. I like funny things. Do I think Deadpool shows up in more stuff than he ever could (like Wolverine), well yes, but so does every other mainstream comic book character. I suspend temporal disbelief because I don't want such realism that I get the issue of Batman getting a colonoscopy (sp.). Personally, I don't understand why people can possess enough conviction to even dislike a comic book character. In conclusion, to each their own.
