The iFanboy.com Comic Book Podcast is a weekly talk show all about the best new current comic book releases. Lifelong friends, Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan talk about what they loved and (sometimes) hated in the current weekly books, from publishers like Marvel, DC, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, BOOM! Studios, IDW, Aftershock, Valiant, and more. The aim is to have a fun time, some laughs, but to also really understand what makes comic books work and what doesn’t, and trying to understand the craft of this great, often under appreciated art form. Sometimes they agree, and sometimes… they don’t. With decades of experience talking about comics, interacting with comic book professionals, this is all about the love of an art form. If the names Brian Michael Bendis, Amanda Conner, Geoff Johns, Gene Luen Yang, Donny Cates, Jason Aaron, Kelly Thompson, David Marquez, Kelly Sue de Connick, Kieron Gillen, Charles Soule, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Scott Snyder, Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Esad Ribic, Rick Remender, Nick Spencer, John Ridley, Skottie Young, Chip Zdarsky, Jöelle Jones, David F. Walker, Grant Morrison, and Darwyn Cooke get you excited, then this is the place for you. This podcast is so good, you don’t even need to read comic books or graphic novels to enjoy it, but it’s a lot better if you do.

7/28/2022
Thanks to iFanboy Patrons, it's Talksplode time. Rainbow Rowell is well known to her Young Adult and prose fans, but when her name showed up on the first issue of the new Runaways series, we wondered where this fully formed comic book writing had come from.

Pick of the Week #836 - Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: Old Man Whittier

Talksplode #102 - Mahmud Asrar

7/1/2022
Thanks to iFanboy Patrons, it's Talksplode time. Mahmud Asrar came from Turkey to make a big name for himself in mainstream comics, and he paid his dues.

Threats of lawsuits and the grim return of eugenics suffuse this show, but we are (semi) professionals and press on.
