    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

    May 28, 2013 12:33 pm Sorry, meant that as a general comment, not a reply.
    May 28, 2013 12:31 pm From what I understand, the "race" to get Quicksilver (and Scarlet Witch, I suppose) is that whoever uses them first gets rights to those characters. So could Fox sue Disney over breach of contract should Whedon use them after First Class 2? Or maybe slap them with a licensing fee? I also wonder if Whedon may slip Quicksilver into an early episode of the new Shield show. Or maybe a last minute cameo in the Thor movie coming out this fall. That could be a clever way to head Fox off at the pass. Personally I'd love for a Ray Nicolette situation to take place. Michael Keaton played the character Ray Nicolette in both Jackie Brown and Out of Sight. Those films were made by two entirely disconnected filmmakers, and produced/distributed by two completely different studios. Maybe if Fox/Disney can come up with some compromise, we could have the same actor in this situation as well... imagine the good will this would foster with the fans!
    May 10, 2013 10:47 am I love the inclusion of Spider-boy from the Amalgam Universe.
    April 29, 2013 10:35 am Oh, one other thought. Anyone else think DD might make a successful TV series? We need a Marvel property on the airwaves to compliment SHIELD, and I think DAREDEVIL is just the sort of "street level" hero that would do well.
    April 29, 2013 10:07 am Great choices! I love Jonah Hill as Foggy, but I recently came up with a possibly more "outside the box" interpretation: Clark Duke.
    April 15, 2013 11:17 am This is 100% Superman to me. Reminds me a lot of the novel by Tom DeHaven.
    March 29, 2013 11:18 am Caught it last night. It was far superior to the original film, and probably as close as we'll ever see to the world of the cartoon being translated on screen. There were some really clunky moments (just about anything involving the plot mechanics of the ninja conflict), but it was great seeing a proper Cobra Commander on screen. Should you see it in the theater? Nah, you can probably wait until blu-ray.
