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. What villain complained about the science-talk? Don’t listen to the haters Ryan.

    • I was coming here to post the same thing. How can someone who loves super heroes, especially Marvel ones, hate on science talk?

  2. iFanboy Powers of X.

    In 10 years, Ryan and Jim will be running the iFanboy podcast. Along with iFanboy super-fan Tom King.

    In 100 years, iFanboy is the hologram of Ron Richards, Haupt’s Monster, and Cyborg Paul Montgomery.

    In 1000 years, all restaurants are iFanboy.

  3. Great job, Ryan and Jim, for keeping the iFanboy light burning! I especially appreciated that you both happened to be on hand for that question about variants, was real interesting to hear about that via your specific experiences in retail comics selling and also publishing.

    I still miss Conor and Josh, though, and I hope their normal lives are okay.

  4. Love Josh and Connor, but changing up the hosts every once in a while is a good way to keep it interesting. Different hosts have different points of view and can add their own color to the conversation. Can’t wait for Saga to come back!

  5. Really enjoyed the lads together – maybe this could be a quarterly thing to give C and J a break?
