    July 5, 2017 10:15 am Thanks for reading my email! I loved the getting caught in the snow story (everyone from upstate NY has at least one or two), and a young Josh meeting Walt Simonson is a great picture. Ithacon was a great first show to go to! I remember some wonderfully cheesy Spider-man and Sinister Six cosplay, having a great chat with Mark Schultz (of Xenoxic Tales, aka Cadillacs and Dinosaurs), and getting my copy of The Maxx signed by Leobs. Yes Josh, getting a can of SPAM as a prize at a comic con is some sort of Platonic form of nerdiness that transcends our understanding. Ron, I'm not a native to Long Island, so I missed those early I-CON conventions. They started back up again recently with some great guests, but the admission was a little steep. Maybe I"ll go next year. I did get a chance to attend Eternal Con at Nassau Coliseum this past weekend, and it was a lot of fun (I even got to be a guest on a making comics panel!).
    June 26, 2017 10:46 am I once did some work for a fledgling comic book company, and one of the up-and-comer artists on staff used Poser models all the time. Now I can't NOT see it whenever it's employed. It's annoying. That being said, Janin's compositions and panel breakdowns are what makes him an A-level talent.
    April 10, 2017 10:32 am Ron, was there some reason you're congratulating Conor at the end? Just on the time off?
    May 23, 2016 3:09 pm Thanks so much for sharing your love for both Timmy and Darwyn.
    April 21, 2014 12:53 pm Hey Birds, thanks for coming to my defense. I always appreciate it when someone looks out for me. BUT... That being said, I took their reaction just as I believe it was intended: some good natured ribbing. I mean, think about how often the co-hosts make fun of each other on this show. If anything, having your chops busted "on the air" should make you feel even MORE like a friend. As you can tell, I've thought about this a at least 5-6 hours.
    April 21, 2014 9:21 am Thanks for playing my voicemail! I'll be sure to check out that Mark Waid run, and I guess I'll just bite the bullet and pick up the Brubaker stuff as well. And that WW2 set book sounds AMAZING. AND HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER ME? Remember when we were 12 years old, riding bikes around our small town as wel grew up together in the 1960's? We even fought that giant spider/inter-dimensional shapeshifting clown demon? No?

    September 3, 2013 12:01 pm When I heard that Josh would be leaving the Make Comics podcast, I had a feeling something like this might be around the corner. In 2005, I had just gotten married. Started saving to buy a house, making peanuts while living on Long Island (of all places). I had to cut stuff out of my budget, and comics were one of the first things to go. But I wanted to keep up with what was going on in the industry. I figured a weekly review podcast could help. I tried several. iFanboy was the only one that could stand. In fact, it was Josh, Ron and Conor's intelligent opinions that made me think of comics more critically, to the point where I started thinking "hell, maybe even *I* could making comics". So here I am, 2013, with a few published shorts under my belt, and upcoming fill-in issue spot at a small publisher, and a Kickstarter that is doing modestly well. NONE OF THIS would be possible without ALL the iFanboy Family. I never would have cared enough about comics to give this a go, if it wasn't for your humor, taste, and enthusiasm. Thank you all so much. Godspeed, Matt Kelly from East Nouurrthpooouuurt, NY
