Books & Literature

The iFanboy.com Comic Book Podcast is a weekly talk show discussing the best in current comic books. Ron, Conor and Josh will share what they loved and hated about the week's comics. With a deep, sometimes scary knowledge of the depths and intricacies of pop culture and the geek lifestyle, the conversations can spin off in many directions. While comics, graphic novels and trade paperbacks are the center of the iFanboy universe, the discussion often covers the video games, movies and TV shows which will capture the fancy of your regular comic book reader. Fun, intelligent, witty and entertaining, the iFanboy crew are just as likely to agree as argue about what's good and what's bad in superhero comics, indie comics, humorous comics, and important graphic novels as well as the creators, writers and artists behind them. We've even occasionally been in the same room as guys like Brian Michael Bendis, Darwyn Cooke, Kurt Busiek, Warren Ellis, Jim Lee, Joe Quesada, Steve Dillon, Kevin Smith, Stan Lee and others. It was a big room, but we were in it. This podcast is so good, you don't even need to read comic books to enjoy it, but it's a lot better if you do.

It's a new epoch for our show! Hopefully it's a short epoch, but here we are. There actually are some new comics out this week, and we talked about all of them. Yes, all of them. We brought our pal, James Viscardi, of comicbook.com, to have some fun, and help us speculate wildly on what the future of comics might hold, and answer some listener questions. You might also notice we went really, really long. Really long. And, oh yeah, there's one more special guest to join us in our new Corner....

Pick of the Week #721 - Doctor Doom #6

It's a great week for first issues, and in the face of strong, high end contenders, the Pick of the Week (which is not wrong), is a bit of a left turn. Do we have a strong pro-Kang bias? Absolutely. All that's important is 1) Doom and Kang on a train and 2) Shaner ascendent. Put that in the bank.
