Get Involved

Doing the podcast is fun and all, but let's be honest, listening to the 2 of us talk to each other can get repetitive, so we look to you, the iFanboy listeners to participate in the podcast! "How can I get in on the fun?" you may ask yourself, well here's how:

  • E-Mail us at contact@ifanboy.com with any questions, comments or anything that may be on your mind.

Please don't forget to leave your name and where you're writing from and each week, we'll pick the best e-mails to include on the podcast!


  1. You were right, the iFanboy media minutes in the end were super good. It should happen every once in a while.

    All day, Ron. All day.

  2. If I may ask, what are you actually expecting in this new story in Hellboy? Were you expecting Hellboy to just beat the living snot out of all these demons AND Satan? Or is the overall tone of the book, being bleak as…well hell, not doing it for you?

    • I don’t really get the complaint that he’s doing nothing. The whole point as I get it from reading Hellboy all these years is that he was fated to do certain things. Now he’s meeting all these things in hell but is refusing to be a victim of fate and taking control himself. Inaction in this situation is action. It’s a much better level of character development than simply punching Satan.

  3. Iván Hays. Say it like this and you will be saying it correctly.
    And not Aivan, Ivan, like E-van.

  4. Fun show as always guys. Thanks!

  5. I’m a trade-waiter and not into Spider-Man anyway, so I was ignorant as to why everyone was making such a fuss over ASM 700. When you guys were talking about it in the podcast, I was like, “THAT’S IT?”

    It is disappointingly hilarious that so much negativity came from this.

  6. I am the Ian from Crete. Just so it’s clear, I’m from Crete, Nebraska. Not as exciting, but also not as potentially dangerous, apparently.
