January 28, 2013 9:26 am Well, that was actually pretty bitter-sweet and emotional listening to that last 20 mins. I kind of dropped out of the comics thing in the late 90s as girls, beer and dancing in nightclubs took precedence. The start of iFanboy podcast coincided with my rediscovery of comics (and podcasts!) in 2005-6 as life settled down and I found the time to read again. Ron, Josh and Connor instantly became my favourite ‘comic books guys’. Charismatic and funny and always with best taste in comics, you guys have inadvertently and single-handedly shaped my buying habits within this hobby that I hold so dear. You've been a constant in my life for these last 7 years and even as I've dropped out of listening for weeks, sometimes months, at a time as I got married or had children, I always come back when I needed the comic chat void filling. Always there with the knowledge and as great as the other staff are, the chemistry you three had (have!) always made me turn my nose in disappointment when one of you wasn't there. I know it’s not ending but it won’t be same so big ups from the UK and best of luck at Image.
January 8, 2013 4:01 am It's definitely a team based on British indie snoremongers The XX. They destroy the baddies with their incessant droning jangly indie bollocks.
July 20, 2012 6:44 am I've been listening to the Colorado local news feed and it's just horrific. Kids covered in blood, baby shot at close range. The newsreader was choking back tears and so was I to be honest. So so sad :( Thoughts with you guys over there

June 22, 2011 4:18 am Looks like Grant Morrison in that natty white suit....
March 28, 2011 11:45 am Could someone linky me an alternative to the 30 Rock clip please?

If that lineup doesn't sell it to you, nothing will!!
June 15, 2010 3:24 pm To any other Brits reading this, can you believe that is Egg from This Life?!! Looks good though

Quick parenting tip, any book shelving in your house that is less than 3 feet from the ground should not be used for comics.

 My 15 month old has already ripped the dust jacket on my Alias omnibus and very nearly had my Punisher hardcovers too....:(

 Congrats Josh, welcome to the world of half a comic before bedtime and then passing out.

"Nicole Kidman at one point was attached to the project"

 Holy fuckin Christ!! Who did they have in mind for Crocker? Adam Sandler?

 Good news though. Q&C is the first I recommend to curious non comic-reading friends and whenever anyone mentions they like spy thrillers

Plus, I'm a Londoner so be good to see some UK action for a change :)
