April 3, 2021 7:16 pm I didn’t notice that the actual book was just Vision Quest, and I bought the book that Josh mentioned at the end their Epic version. Twice as long, but worth every penny. I am a little younger than you all, just turned 40, but almost all the comics I buy now are large books with a year or more’s worth of comics from the 90’s or before. This is pure escapism, and it is glorious.
December 15, 2020 10:06 am I know it was a graphic novel, and therefore probably ineligible for the Pick of the Week end of year stats, but I was excited to see TKO get a pick with Sara. I am enjoying their output, and while it does seem to be a bit of place for movie pitches I am still enjoying them as comics.
December 8, 2020 11:20 am I'm way late to the game, catching up on the Mediasplodes, but Conor I know that the podcast The Dollop did a pretty funny episode on Action Park a few years ago.
October 19, 2020 4:04 pm Everyone that has been interviewed recently on Talksplode has seemed like a nice person, but Gene seems like the top of the heap. I'm so happy for his success and can't wait to read every new thing that he puts out.
October 6, 2020 10:29 am I am super behind in my MediaSplode listening, but I here are my top 5 Tom Hanks films in (subject to change) order: The 'Burbs Saving Private Ryan The Green Mile Sleepless in Seattle That Thing You Do This is a perfect example of "people like the things they grew up with" because, besides The 'Burbs in '89, they are all '90s movies, and that is right when I was in high school and forming my own movie watching identity. Now I gotta go binge Tom Hanks movies!
August 3, 2020 4:28 pm I think I have only read one superhero novel: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. It is a YA book, but like all of Sanderson's books it is a great read.
August 3, 2020 3:43 pm I'm way behind in my podcasts, so I just listened to this. Great interview! Thanks to Josh, and super big thanks to Kelly for doing it twice. Well worth it!
December 16, 2019 9:04 pm Great episode as always. Conor, I have to tell you, The Thin Man is my favorite movie, and when our son was born Dec. 30 of last year we named him Dashiell. People over 50 think Dashiell Hammett (which is true); people under 40 think Dash from The Incredibles (which is false, but hey, it’s a good movie so I don’t mind). I also just recently finished Secret Agent X-9 by Hammett...it was okay, but mainly for completists. I would stick with his novels and short fiction. Thanks again for another great year of iFanboy!
September 17, 2019 9:41 am Great show as always! It was interesting that while listening to my number one podcast (not pandering, just the truth) I heard numbers three (The Adventure Zone), four (The Smartest Man in the World), and five (Revisionist History) mentioned. I got back into listening to podcasts about 4 years ago, and iFanboy was the one that got me back. I now listen to 20 or so but this one is always the first one I listen to. Thank you for 700 great episodes!
July 28, 2019 5:14 pm I had never read Planetary, so when you announced you were doing Book Two I figured I really needed to check it out. Boy am I glad I did! I loved these books! I think they are ones I will probably go back and read every now and then. Also, am I the only one who thinks that Elijah Snow might have been modeled on Robert Pollard of Guided by Voices? Just a thought.
