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. Chuckees?
    Is that what they call chucks in Canada or something?

    Didn’t Marvel already do this version of Black Canary- wasn’t it called Dazzler?

    Anyone else feel a ‘it was all a dream…’ coming in Secret Wars?

  2. I also read an incredible amount of expanded universe Star Wars stuff back in the late 90s. I stopped reading the books a year or so before Chewy died, but I remember that well as a friend of mine was still reading at the time.

    The Thrawn books were the best books in my opinion, followed by Shadows of the Empire.

    For the comics side Dark Horse should be commended for the work they did. Dark Empire was what got me “back” into Star Wars shortly before the release of the Special Editions. It remains one of my favorite comic series of all time. Dark Empire II and Empire’s End (part 3) were also ok, but part 1 was amazing. Other great comics were – Crimson Empire 1 and 2, and Tales of the Jedi. Tales of the Jedi was one of the first books/comics to touch on the very old back story of the jedis and the sith.

    On another note, I wonder how many listeners of the podcast have a garage/room/or even boxes full of old Star Wars stuff from the 90s? I know I do lol.

  3. Hey Ron, just a heads up on the Captain Britain book:

    All the Judge Dredd stuff comes from the Jeff Parker Thunderbolts run. It was an alternate future where Luke Cage’s descendant was a “Boss”.

    So the book is Captain Britain fighting american superheroes as parodies of an British parody of Americans.

  4. I’d like to check out C2E2, hopefully next year. My friend and I have been going to Fan Expo in Toronto for several years. It’s convenient because it’s only about a three hour drive for us. The guest list isn’t quite like other shows, though I believe iFanboy had a presence one year, but it’s a good time.

  5. @Ron –

    The Jedi Knight and Dark Forces games are all readily available on Good Old Games – no emulators needed.
