Another fantastic issue, this is the one book I feel that Geoff Johns is doing right. He has slowly built…

December 11, 2016 6:15 pm I fully expect Gomorrah season 2 and Black Mirror season 3 to be included in the TV segment of the annual all year media wrap up show. If not, you guys are wasting your time not watching the right programmes
November 20, 2016 3:26 pm One useless superpower that must be included is the ability to understand, word for word, whatever Frankie Carbone is saying
November 1, 2016 12:47 pm Just out of curiosity, when will be able to have all the iFanboy video shows uploaded to the dedicated YouTube channel?
October 30, 2016 3:03 pm Undoubtedly the weakest of the Marvel Netflix series. I think they set the tone early, unlike Jessica Jones and Daredevil, the show starts of ploddingly and takes a while to find its groove. I think both Ron and Conor hit the nail on the head, the major problem were the villains. Killgrave and Wilson Fisk were both super powered, albeit in muted ways. Cottonmouth only fires an RPG, that is his only badass moment, the rest of the time he is moaning, helpless and is never able to mount even a half decent offensive. I think if they incorporated some of his comic book powers, such as his speciality with poison, it would have show him capable in his villainy and raised the stakes. Although Diamondback was hammy, you at least believed he was a credible threat. Shades was definitely one of the highlights, as was the origin episode and the Mama Mabel flashback. Music was great, but all in all, the weakest so far.
September 19, 2016 12:34 pm Check out Batman: Broken City (written by Brian Azzarello) for some sweet Eduardo Risso art. The story is an incredibly dark, down to earth crime noir story
August 11, 2016 5:39 am I think the gangster iteration that they were going for with Jared Leto's performance was taken from Azzerello and Bermejo's 'Joker' OGN, where the portrayal is one more grounded in that of a crime boss, albeit completely unhinged. However the look there was more in line with the scruffy, chelsea grinned appearance that Heath Ledger sported. I don't mind his portrayal, I thought it was different, not necessarily bad. They just didnt give him enough to do. It's interesting to see that a moviegoer is now suing the film for false advertising because the scenes that were used in the trailer were cut. I think that is what pisses us all, the studio meddling. All in all another subpar to terrible offering from Warner Brothers. Hopefully they will give Geoff Johns control in the same way they now give Kevin Feige. I am not holding my breath though.
July 26, 2016 1:18 pm I have said it before and I will say it again- forget floppy single issue comics, people are starting to sell off their trades. I sold all my collection except for 10 seminal titles (Killing Joke, Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, Superman Red Son etc.) With a 128GB Ipad and 3TB containing complete golden age to modern age uninterrupted runs, I am spoilt for choice with everything. I can walk around with an entire library now including my EC Comics, old Charlton as well as smaller and now defunct publishers. I also have tons more room in my house. I believe in the next couple of years publishers will have to move to hardbacks and omnibus' to entice customers to buy paper, sell your trades while you can get some money for them.
April 23, 2016 9:18 pm Before I even begin, 3 evergreen ifanboy memes that need to be uttered in every podcast. 1. JESSICAAA (in a norf landaan acent) 2. VADER DOWNN 3. Only for voicemails/emails- I have thought about X for Y
February 15, 2016 8:47 am What was Conor going to say about Stan Lee in the strip club? You gotta tell us, I have thought about nothing else since!
January 25, 2016 1:45 pm The only book you guys need to read about the mob is by NY Times crime reporter Selwyn Raab called 'Five Families: The Rise, Decline, and Resurgence of America's Most Powerful Mafia Empires' . Nearly 1,000 pages providing comprehensive insight into every family, main players and bios, all done sequentially from the 'honoured society' origins in Sicily till post 9/11 rise. Also goes into detail about the origins of RICO and the FBI's efforts in the 80's to convict. It's the only book you ever have to read about Cosa Nostra. Can't recommend it highly enough.
