June 5, 2016 5:08 pm Re: Civil War II: Haven't read #1 yet, but I just read the Free Comic Book Day Civil War II story, and it has the War Machine and She-Hulk thing happen in it. So, yeah, no uproar about that going on a month now.

December 6, 2015 3:41 pm Top 5 creators this year (alphabetically): Jordie Bellaire (elevates EVERY book she colors), Gabriel Hardman, Stuart Immonen, Terry Moore (Rachel Rising is aces), Declan Shalvey. You know what, this list is probably applicable to the past few years.

September 2, 2013 11:29 pm I think everyone's start date is in 2008 when the site went to iFanboy 3.0.
September 2, 2013 11:12 pm I haven't a damn clue as to what originally drew my attention to the iFanboy video show, be it a recommendation from someone or a link I found somewhere, but the site instantly became a great part of my life, both in size and entertainment value. Between each new show (video and audio), I'd go back and watch and listen to earlier shows that I'd miss. Hell, I still go back and revisit some of the video shows every now and then. Then it [the site] blew. up. New articles, new features, new podcasts (Booksplode, Don't Miss, etc.), and a bevy of new contributors. And it all felt seamless. It was like the new staff had been here all along, which, as it turned out, was the case for a bunch of them. Home was expanding, but it still totally felt like home. Admittedly, I stopped reading singles towards the end of 2011, switching to just trades, so now I don't listen to the PotW until 6 or 7 months after it's published, but I still love every bit of it. But I still check in regularly for most all of the features (just not Best of the Week in Panels). But now we're going back to basics. And I totally get it. When the site blew up, it blew up pretty damn quickly. More content means more work, more upkeep, more responsibility. And all while life outside the site is still going on, too. Life that needs priority attention, especially if the site isn't the primary source of income. I get it, and, you know what? I think it might be a welcome change of pace. Now that it's just the podcasts, I've got to imagine that it'll feel a lot less like work to sit down and record them. They're focusing on the shows now., which were what brought me here to the site to begin with. All the other features? I can consider them bonus content that we were all fortunate enough to enjoy for a good while. On to the folks that run this joint. I can't think of a better bunch of people in this business. Really. I met Ron, Conor, and Tom Katers at Boston Comic-Con in 2011, and they just immediately treated me as one of their own. We're all just comic fans, so we got along great. (At New York Comic-Cons 2011 and 2012, I saw Ron and Conor working, but still no sign of the ever-elusive Josh.) But I can't not mention my MVP of the new batch of contributors, one Paul Montgomery. His jolly wit knows no limit. So, I'll gladly keep shelling out dough every December to do my part in keeping the place running. And I'll always proudly where my iFanboy Member shirt at any Con I attend because I always feel good about having the creators associate a pleasant fan interaction experience (which I try to make every time) with the site. Sometimes just the sight of the shirt will put a smile on their face. Okay, enough rambling. iFanboy, you have my complete support in this transition. Hell, we're all here with you every step of the way.

August 29, 2012 10:21 pm I go mostly by publisher. Dark Horse, DC, IDW, Image, and Vertigo get alphabetized within their own sections. Marvel takes up two bookshelves on its own. All other publishers are intermingled, sorted alphabetically by title. Digest and manga-sized books are sorted alphabetically by title regardless of publisher on a smaller bookshelf. Given my collection of roughly 1,000 trades/HCs, this is the only way for me to know exactly where everything is. It also makes for easy browsing for my friends that borrow my books.
