  1. I would love a “iFanboy: Who is this for?” Shirt

    • You know what company Should be around Still- Saab.
      I’ll take a cracked bumper over a broken axle any day.

      One question Ron- What is an Egg-Ret?

  2. If you want to see styrofoam cup in Nyc go into any bodega and buy a horchata.

  3. Great show as always. I loved your tangent about styrofoam and had to put in my two cents. From what I have heard (I can’t name a source, so read this with that in mind) paper cups (especially ones for hot drinks with the waxy coating inside) are just as bad for the environment as styrofoam: just different parts of the environment. Styrofoam doesn’t decompose, so it is horrible after it is made, but paper cups cause a lot more air pollution, so they are horrible while being made. My vote is to go back to the Flintstones age and use animal bladders!

    I picked CLUE #1 out of genuine curiosity so I appreciated the real drill-down review you two gave it. I look forward to checking it out. Thanks!

  5. Thanks for reading my email! I loved the getting caught in the snow story (everyone from upstate NY has at least one or two), and a young Josh meeting Walt Simonson is a great picture.

    Ithacon was a great first show to go to! I remember some wonderfully cheesy Spider-man and Sinister Six cosplay, having a great chat with Mark Schultz (of Xenoxic Tales, aka Cadillacs and Dinosaurs), and getting my copy of The Maxx signed by Leobs. Yes Josh, getting a can of SPAM as a prize at a comic con is some sort of Platonic form of nerdiness that transcends our understanding.

    Ron, I’m not a native to Long Island, so I missed those early I-CON conventions. They started back up again recently with some great guests, but the admission was a little steep. Maybe I”ll go next year. I did get a chance to attend Eternal Con at Nassau Coliseum this past weekend, and it was a lot of fun (I even got to be a guest on a making comics panel!).

  6. Nice show as always

    I just watched Netflix´s Castlevania, written by warren Ellis and others.
    Since you guys do podcasts on some shows and movies,
    please please do a show on Castlevania

    it’s small (4 ep ~80 min), it has good art, story is compelling, only good reasons for you to watch and make an awesome show

    keep the good work on the best sequential-art podcast
