I’ve never read a page of X-O Manowar before this issue. I didn’t know the concept going into this first…

January 24, 2013 7:12 pm Thanks a bunch Ryan, I love these kinds of personal stories about you guys. I feel like this is the kind of thing that really, really separates iFanboy from other comic sites and most other podcasts - personality. I think it's such a huge reason that so many are broken up about Ron leaving. I'd love to hear more behind-the-scenes stuff from the iFanboy boys and gals!
January 24, 2013 7:10 pm It is known, khaleesi.
January 19, 2013 8:31 am I am seriously going to miss listening to you week in, week out Ron! As long as I've been listening to podcasts, I've been listening to iFanboy. You guys got me through grad school and now 4+ years counting of my job. I'm happy to hear Paul is getting the spot, but it just won't be the same. Ron, I've always admired your commitment and excitement to the X-Men. As a fellow mutie lover, I've really appreciated it. I know Paul will do a fantastic job, and I know I'll keep listening as long as you guys are making episodes, but it will certainly be a different show with a slightly different dynamic. I sincerely wish you the best of luck at Image!
December 6, 2012 8:52 pm I am genuinely excited that IDW is doing a comic based on the new TMNT cartoon. I can't get enough of it!
November 19, 2012 9:01 pm I promised myself I was just going to trade wait on all these new Marvel Now! 3.99 books and get the ones that get great reviews, but Cap is the exception. I've got to see how this goes if only to hype myself up for the eventual trade.
October 27, 2012 9:53 am Completely agree. Cap's probably my favorite character in comics, and when I saw that creative team I knew I'd be getting into the new series right from the get-go. This looks like top-notch comic work and will hopefully lead to a long Remender run on good old Steve Rogers.
October 14, 2012 9:22 am If that is true, the beauty of that kind of story is when the memories start to leak through from "activated" session to "activated" session and even between activations. Dollhouse is a great example of how something like this could work really well to raise the tension and drama.
May 23, 2012 7:35 pm That was a fantastic read and made me very pleased that I jumped back on after only reading the first three issues. I dig the new team (really all you need for a team to work is some bickering and a love-hate romantic relationship, but Lemire did it so well!). The book felt packed with content and story without being too wordy. I loved the Vertigo miniseries that the last page reveal talks about, so it looks like I'm on for the ride of the arc at least. Art was also really good and bright while still being a little different from traditional supers art. The coloring was perfect throughout.
May 12, 2012 2:39 pm I'd buy the first issue just to see the costumes alone.
April 30, 2012 5:56 pm Anyone know if this is going to be available digitally anywhere? I'm interested in this (never read it as a kid, but I can remember seeing ads for it all the time in Wizard magazine), and want to check out this first issue if possible.
