  1. A clip show?

  2. Nice, Ifanboy insanity to end the holidays!

  3.  why did i stop regularly hearing this madness.  You guy’s could create the ulminate mavel sitcom you know that right?


    My favorite iFanboy moment has to be the episode with Sentry: Fallen Sun.  Because ripping into that issue was sooooooooooooooo amazing. 

  5. It’s good to know my e-mail triggered the 8th best iFanboy moment of all time. 🙂

  6. This was amazing. Lovely end to my day.


  8. I didn’t even know I had been waiting for this. This just shows why you guys are my favourite comic book podcast! Here’s to at least five more years spent veering off the rails!

  9. I totally forgot about Arthur from Maine.

  10. I like this.

  11. “Here’s the thing……………………………………………………………………….” – Conor

  12. @NathanNicdao  (like!)

  13. I’m not from Bangor…

    Oh, I know. 

  15. so funny whats the ifanboy origin story ??

  16. ok if thor borrow toothbrush?

  17. The “Show Me the Way to Go Home” singalong is a personal favorite.

  18. what @stuclach said.

  19. “Whatever the fuck sober people do” is an all-time quote.

    And rustyautoparts is one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard on a podcast ever. To this day, never fails to crack me up.

  20. Mr. Montgomery, I assume it was your music choice…has anybody ever told you how awesome you are?

  21. Oh, my god, I remember some of these, and they are funnier now!

  22. Did not know that I wanted this until I read the show notes.  Thanks guys!

  23. i need the clip of the boys talking about sentry:fallen son

  24. @wangman31888  It is linked in the article Conor and Josh just posted on the 10 best things in comics this year. Enjoy!

  25. Wait – was there no ‘Captain America rates heroes while on drugs’ moment on there? Because that’s a top ten segment for sure…

  26. haha, I love that the Arthur from Main clip also contains the classic What Year Is It in the DCU? discussion, which also ran into the first iFanboy video show.

  27. I wou;d’ve liked to see Ron talking about Heroic Age: Super Heroes #1, that was f-ing hilarious, but these are all great too.

  28. Avatar photo Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    @ABirdseysView  Excellent. I tried to include extra bits where I could and that was one where I didn’t want to cut away early. That’s why I included a little Shiguri Death Frenzy too. 

  29. At work, I sat at my desk literally laughing out loud…. rustyautoparts. I think I played that clip over and over about 6 times. Even if I took my headphones off, folks would have thought I was still nuts

  30. #1 Was funny. 🙂

  31. And that G.I. Joe Tangent? MAN!

  32. @NathanNicdao  I WAS ONCE A MAN!!!!!!!!

  33. @j206  Another vote for “Whatever the fuck sober people do.” That was brilliant and I quite literally choked the first time I heard it.

  34. I forgot how great the ‘monkey with a gun’ discussion was.  When Conor and Ron take a stereotypical shot at Josh for the idea not having enough ‘character’ had me laughing out loud.  Just great.

  35. @MisterJ  That was Tom, not me. I was on vacation that week.

  36. Paul, Ryan, great show. And congratulations, chaps!

  37. Pros: Funny list
    Cons: No Judgmental Steve Rogers

  38. @conor  Whoops, that is the problem with laughing I wasn’t paying enough attention to the intro.

  39. two funny moments that got left off was:

    Galactus at IKEA
    Fallen Sun review

  40. That #1 moment was all me. 😉

    Seriously though, great work fellas. I havent been around as much lately, but iFanboy always has a place in my heart. You introduced me to the wide world of comics, and my life hasn’t been same since.
