May 22, 2020 3:06 am I also never had read Darwyn's NF annotations before - and holy crow, it is *dense* backmatter! But so worth it. I finally finished it tonight, I cannot think of another time in which I felt like I had as true a "director's commentary" for a comic book work before. Then all the rest of the supplementary material, some of which I'd read, some I didn't remember reading... sheesh, just the act of reading all of NF together was a new experience for me, I'd only read it as the single issues came out back in the day... anyway, this was a terrific adventure into Cooke's masterpeice. I'm crazy grateful to iFanboy for leading me to it.
March 9, 2020 7:40 pm On a mildly related note, I love how Bendis wrote the inhabitants of Gemworld as being really cranky that their entire reality kept changing over and over again all because of dumb Earth and its Crises LOL Superman Reborn really = Multiverse Reborn. Because if some shmuck Thanagarian happened to have met pre52 Superman or New52 Superman, then that means someone has to tweak that shmuck Thanagarian's reality too, and anyone he may have talked about it with. Omg the community spread of this... the butterfly effect from someone as Multiversally influential as Superman being Reborn'ed must've been *a Crisis-level load of work* for whatever Monitor-type character was in charge at the time.
March 2, 2020 6:56 pm Had I known before this podcast that John Constantine is bi, I'd have tried reading this Hellblazer (and other Hellsblazer) long ago! Way to bury the lede, JOSH! Whom I know was not even on this episode, fine, but still, we pay him to be our pointman on all things Constantine, and even though I've been listening to iFanboy since the Bush Administration, I am only now finding out crucial information which would've changed my buying habits
February 19, 2020 7:42 pm Much agreed, I love that. I also caught the irony of Conor feigning umbrage over a Spidey comic that needled podcasters LOL Turnabout is fair play!
February 10, 2020 6:46 pm I really enjoyed Justice League #40. Snyder's run, while popular with most fans, didn't connect with me - so this first issue by Venditti and Mahnke really felt like a breath of fresh air, the pace and characterizations are just what I want, and Mahnke's artwork is also great. This Sodam Yat/ Eradicator story is just big enough to warrant a hero team effort, but not nearly as high-concept and multiverse-threatening as Snyder's long Doom/ Perpetua arc was, for example. Am again reminded of Josh's hilarious quote from last week: "If I get too many extra bills in one month, I can't cope. These people? - it's like a universe ending disaster once a week." LOL! Also, while you guys shouldn't ever have to defend your tastes, your comic book habits, or the way you produce your own show (which is free to listerners), it is always interesting to hear about it, so this show's long runtime was worth it. Especially because we got some "theater of the mind" when a monster came to Josh's door
December 22, 2019 6:49 pm Enjoyed listening to your iFanboy podcast review, but it's just because I love listening to you guys :) I'm not seeing this movie, like I haven't seen "Solo" or "The Mandalorian." I've loved Star Wars since '77, even embraced "The Force Awakens" a few years back. But "The Last Jedi" extinguished any connection I felt to Disney's version of Star Wars. Just took something I had so much fun with my whole life and strangled it. Now the idea of new Star Wars makes me nauseous.
November 30, 2019 5:40 pm The iFanboy Braintrust perfectly expressed my own feelings about this animated “Hush” adaptation, it was indeed a mess. Frankly, I found Paul’s sudden discovery of the two Peyton Lists more interesting. Also, for the first time, I was annoyed by the rampant curse words included into the script of this one. Just took me out of it. Could that be what killed Conor’s poor blu-ray player
November 30, 2019 5:33 pm Thank heavens! :) And thank you, @CashWho. I was not a fan of that “For Tomorrow” arc
October 10, 2019 4:17 am I fully understand and agree that movies like this are not for everyone. Lots of people, maybe even most, simply would prefer to avoid spending time thinking about uglier truths of our society and humanity. Also, too, lots of comic book film fans only want certain types of (safer, conventionally entertaining) stories from their moviegoing fare. I am neither of those people. I thought JOKER was brilliant - this film is true art. And Joaquin Phoenix's performance is one of the best I have ever seen in movies, period; I could not take my eyes off him for two hours, I was mesmerized and horrified, and in sheer awe of his talent. Do I want all comic book movies to be like this? Oh God no! Lol But I do love that Warner Brothers has the balls to produce a variety of different types of films within this genre. Now I am even more excited for Birds of Prey, Suicide Squad 2 and Wonder Woman '84 - let alone for Matt Reeves' Batman films and Ava DuVernay's New Gods :D
