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. In Captain America this month, after Kraven took his shield, how did he get it back? It just seemed to appear in that panel when he needed it.

  2. Loved having Ryan join. Great episode, guys!

  3. Happy New Year guys! Hoping to get your thoughts on:

    1) When, if ever, will we get a Punisher Netflix special edition podcast? I can’t believe that still hasn’t been done yet, please don’t tell me you are too busy to watch one episode a night

    2) Brian Bendis’ move to DC – any insider goss you can share on reasons for his departure at Marvel/what books he might be working on?

    3) If American Vampire will ever resume? Can you please ask Scott Snyder what’s going on there?

    4) If Josh is reading Hellblazer now what DC has realised its stupid mistake and moved the title back to Vertigo

    5) Top 5 ongoing books/must reads

    Thanks guys

    • That’s a lot of questions man. and not quick ones either.

    • Here’s what I’ve got for you on this Monday morning:

      1) That ship has probably sailed. I don’t have time to watch it right now and don’t know when I will. Also, with Ron gone I’m not sure how often, if at all, we’ll be doing TV review shows in the future. We’ll see.

      2) Anything we may or may not know about this we can’t talk about.

      3) No idea.

      4) As far as I know he’s not stopped reading HELLBLAZER.

      5) I’d have to think about that.

    • Conor didn’t mention this but I thought they said they were only sticking with the Netflix shows through the Defenders release.

  4. Happy to have you guys back on my Monday drive to and from work. Hope you feel better!

  5. Nice show–you always lead me to read something I wouldn’t have otherwise. Appreciated what Ryan brings to the mix. Hope to hear you healthy next week!

  6. This is Patrick K, sorry for asking such a bad question this go around. I have accepted the challenge to ask a better question next time. I will be working from this moment forward to ask an awesome question! Or I might ask another bad one just to mess with y’all.
