March 3, 2013 8:14 pm Wow. This was a rough episode. I hope the rest of my comments will be taken in the spirit in which they are intended. I have listened to your podcasts since 2007, and most of the time I have enjoyed your shows. I want you to produce the best possible episodes, so that as many people as possible can enjoy them. I don't think you guys are living up the standard that you have set. Please use these constructive criticisms to improve the show. When you discuss a comic book that all three of you have read, the additional insights add substance to the show. In this episode, frequently one of the hosts will start to discuss a comic book and then ask "did anyone else read this book?" After it is clear that only one of the three hosts has read a book, the comments are very limited, and it sounds like certain people are "mailing it in." While is is mildy funny to hear Josh make comments about how out of the loop or behind he is on certain topics, its not good enough to just retort things like "hey, I have a kid." You guys really only discuss ten comic books each week. I don't think it is too much to expect that at least two of the three hosts have read each book that is being discussed. Marvel Comics is one of the worlds biggest comic book publishers. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear that none of the three hosts have a genuine love for Marvel Comics. In the past, Ron was the Marvel guy, Conor was the DC guy, and Josh was the Independent Publisher guy. Of course, there was some variation and crossover, but there was at least one host who made it clear that they loved Marvel Comics. Each publisher has a certain amount of goofiness, and it is nice to hear from someone with years of experience following those story lines. Ron's love of the X-men, and the strange history of these characters, was one of the best parts about some of the older episodes. With the addition of Paul, who appears to primarily enjoys DC and Independent Publishers, there is a gap for listeners who primary enjoy Marvel Comics. I appreciate Conor and Paul taking Josh to task with his Onslaught criticisms (which can be summarized as "I hate all continuity that I am ignorant of"), but your show would be so much more enjoyable if there was someone who really identified with the primary comic book publisher in the market. Personally, I am a fan of Marvel Comics, and I don't care about DC or the other publishers. When I listen to your show, I tend to tune out most of the discussions of the other publishers, but I tend to enjoy your comments on Marvel, so that I can follow along with some of the major themes that are transpiring in that universe. That has gotten progressively harder over the past few episodes, and I just would encourage you to find a way to identify more with Marvel Comics. I've debated posting a message like this over the past few weeks, because I am saddened by what your show has become. If I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much in the past, I don't think I would have cared enough to post this comment. I really just hope that your show improves back to the standard that you established over the years, because I really want to enjoy it as much as I used to.
February 24, 2012 9:58 am Hm... it's been over six months since the new website launched, and you guys still haven't re-launched a mobile version. Now it's been a few months since you guys went on "hiatus", and still no new video shows. I'm just glad I never spent any money on a membership. I appreciate the free content, when you guys get around to it. If I have to root for one option over the other, could you please try to get a mobile version of the site back sometime in the next, I don't know, year or so? Thanks P.S. Sorry to be so negative, but I used to think very highly of the quality of your mobile website and the quality of your timely content, so much so that I would recommend your site to my friends all of the time. Now, I'm not sure that I'd recommend you guys any longer, and that makes me sad. I just miss the days when ifanboy seemed to care more about putting out quality in a timely manner and trying to reach more readers and fans in a variety of ways. I'm not sure if the cuts are about financial problems or about burn-out, but I hope you guys get back to your old ways soon.
February 21, 2012 5:02 pm I think a Mr. Fixit vs. the 90's West Coast Avengers would be great to read, but Wonder Man better mop the floor with the Hulk. Given their power levels at the time, Wonder Man alone should be able to get the job done.
February 21, 2012 4:59 pm Pretty sure George Clooney is going to be in this...
August 9, 2011 5:18 pm Wonder Man & the Beast should have been #1, but otherwise a good list.
August 7, 2011 11:20 pm Love the Wonder Man reference. Keep up the great work, guys.
August 5, 2011 12:00 pm Catwoman, huh? Wake me up when they make the Wonder Man movie...
June 27, 2011 1:23 pm I miss the days of having a "house style" of the artwork at Marvel, where you could open any book and know it was a Marvel book. For me, it was cleaner and made it much easier to focus on the story. Maybe it was the stronger executive control, but it seemed like most books came out on time and the cross overs, timelines, and continuity was smoother overall. I prefer that system over a "I'm a writer/artist and I created this character so I'm important and I should get paid into eternity" kind of mentality.
