Pick of the Week #651 - Archie 1941 #1

It's a week of pretty good books, but maybe not great books. In any case there were a lot of them. But it was definitely a week for books that are either really for us, or books where we can't figure out who they're for. Or both. Running Time: 01:06:10 Pick of the Week: 00:01:41 - Archie 1941 #1 Comics: 00:11:50 - Journey Into Mystery: The Birth of Krakoa #1 00:15:58 - Fantastic Four #2 00:21:35 - Hey Kids! Comics! #2 00:29:51 - The Seeds #2 00:36:43 - Superman #3 00:40:00 -...


Pick of the Week #650 - Death of The Inhumans #3

iFanboy celebrates its 650th episode with a triple-sized all listener e-mail spectacular! Josh Flanagan, Conor Kilpatrick, and special guest Ryan Haupt asked you, the iFanbase, to send them e-mails… and you delivered! Running Time: 03:33:40 Pick of the Week: 00:03:17 - Death of The Inhumans #3 Patron Pick: 00:14:28 - Bully Wars #1 Audience Questions: 00:25:33 - The tradition continues as we field questions from the loyal iFanbase for over 3 hours! Listen as this iFanboy trio slowly...


Pick of the Week #649 - Lex Luthor/Porky Pig Special #1

It's an evening recording, the tables are turned, and it was a fifth week, and barely any books to talk about. It was glorious. Except the horrifying pig cover. Try not to look into his eyes. Running Time: 01:16:58 Pick of the Week: 00:02:07 - Lex Luthor/Porky Pig Special #1 Comics: 00:13:56 - Extermination #2 00:16:15 - Hunt for Wolverine: Dead Ends 00:19:58 - Marvel Two-In-One #9 00:24:24 - Moon Knight #198 00:34:45 - Batgirl Annual #2 00:36:56 - Batgirl #26 00:38:46 - Nightwing...


Talksplode #80 - Jeff Parker

Thanks to iFanboy Patrons, it's Talksplode time. Do you like Jaws? Do you enjoy talk about the Los Angeles entertainment industry in the early 2000s? Some Darwyn Cooke anecdotes from the animation industry and celebrity encounters? Do you like the work of Jeff Parker and his soothing Carolinean accent even if he can't remember the Swamp Thing movie catch phrase? Well, good news folks, because this podcast is for you. Not so much an interview as a wide ranging conversation, that we hope...


Pick of the Week #648 – Old Man Hawkeye #8

This week, Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan battle heat and hunger to bring you all the comics talk they can muster, plus the secret criminal origins of iFanboy are revealed!

Pick of the Week #647 - Batman #53

Conor Kilpatrick’s back! He returns from summer vacation to join Josh Flanagan to talk comic books and they do the best they can considering the creeping heat and the on-set of old man brain. Running Time: 01:11:47 Pick of the Week: 00:02:26 – Batman #53 Comics: 00:14:13 – Extermination #1 00:20:12 – Infinity Wars #2 00:24:14 – Batgirl #25 00:29:56 – Tony Stark: Iron Man #3 00:36:38 – Usagi Yojimbo: The Hidden #5 00:40:21 – Archie Meets Batman ’66 #2 00:41:27 – Crowded #1 Patron...


Pick of the Week #646 - Hey Kids! Comics! #1

It starts off punchy, and then eventually gets to hazy. But in the middle is some genuine comics analysis and introspection, and some damn fine books out this week. Jim Viscardi (comicbook.com) fills in for a recreating Conor Kilpatrick, and tries valiantly to hold on while Josh Flanagan descends into fatigue based insanity. Like Conrad's Heart of Darkness, but with complaints about left hand panel stacking. Running Time: 01:17:54 Pick of the Week: 00:02:46 - Hey Kids! Comics!...


Pick of the Week #645 - Batman #52

Conor's gone on some sort of vacation, so Ryan Haupt joins Josh Flanagan and they talk and talk and talk. Mostly about comics! Josh tries to remember Secret Invasion, but doesn't. But he does remember Dimension Z. The fact is, he has a cold and it's all a white knuckle cognition adventure. Plus we narrowly avoid the "sandwich" question. Running Time: 01:15:59 Pick of the Week: 00:01:19 - Batman #52 Comics: 00:11:09 - Captain America #2 00:17:54 - Mister Miracle #10 00:24:29 - Death of...


Pick of the Week #644 - Action Comics #1001

This week, in addition to the usual nonsense and comic book talk, we get an extra special glimpse into Josh Flanagan's marriage and Conor Kilpatrick tells us a little bit about his San Diego Comic-Con experience. Running Time: 01:00:00 Pick of the Week: 00:01:50 - Action Comics #1001 Comics: 00:13:24 - X-Men: Grand Design - Second Genesis #1 00:16:51 - Doomsday Clock #6 00:20:01 - The Amazing Spider-Man #2 00:24:11 - The Sentry #2 00:27:58 - The Flash #51 00:30:45 - Justice League...


Pick of the Week #643 - Old Man Hawkeye #7

Conor's coming to us live from San Diego Comic-Con, and Josh is just at home. Actually, Conor's in a hotel just adjacent to Comic-Con, and it's early in the morning, so we make the best of it. More good books, with plenty of Pick options, and some surprising up and comers dot the list this week, with quality moving in the right direction, so it's a good time all around. Except for Conor, trapped in a hotel room with spotty wifi, and being sent to Star Wars corner *again*. Running Time:...


Booksplode #26 - Planetary, Book One

Thanks to our awesome Patrons, we're proud to present another Booksplode! What's a Booksplode? It's a bi-monthly special edition podcast in which we take a look at a single graphic novel or collected edition, something we really just don't have time to do on the regular show. This month, Josh Flanagan and Conor Kilpatrick take a look at Planetary, Book One by Warren Ellis, John Cassaday, Phil Jimenez, Andy Lanning, Laura Martin, David Baron, Ryan Cline, Ali Fuchs, Michael Heisler, & Bill...


Pick of the Week #642 - The Amazing Spider-Man #1

Ryan Haupt fills in for an absent Josh Flanagan to join Conor Kilpatrick in the weekly comics talk and it couldn't come on a more appropriate time--never has there been a week when there was so much science in comics! Running Time: 01:05:59 Pick of the Week: 00:01:27 - The Amazing Spider-Man #1 Comics: 00:11:01 - Superman #1 00:15:09 - The Flash #50 00:20:06 - Die!Die!Die! #1 00:23:53 - Outpost Zero #1 00:29:35 - The Dead Hand #4 00:33:07 - Exiles #5 00:34:33 - Hawkman...


Pick of the Week #641 - Captain America #1

Come along as Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan take a trip to Van Halen City to talk about that week that was in comic books. And while Josh missed an entire part of a comic book and, if you listen closely, you can hear George Clooney the Dog, there's still time for more food talk. Running Time: 01:07:02 Pick of the Week: 00:02:52 - Captain America #1 Comics: 00:11:22 - Batman #50 00:18:26 - Catwoman #1 00:21:34 - The Man of Steel #6 00:25:07 - Death of the Inhumans #1 00:31:21 -...


Special Edition - Ant-Man and The Wasp

Paul Rudd? Morrissey jokes? Conor Kilpatrick had no choice put to pull the emergency chord and bring in former co-host Ron Richards to talk about Ant-Man and The Wasp! (Disclaimer: Ron Richard's opinions are his own and do not represent Marvel Entertainment or the Walt Disney Corporation.) Running Time: 00:26:42 Music: "Everyday is Like Sunday" Morrissey Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Talksplode #79 – Terry Moore

Thanks to iFanboy patrons, it's Talksplode time. It's our second Texan in a row, as Josh finally welcomes cartoonist and creator, Terry Moore to the long form interview show. Terry's Strangers in Paradise holds a special place in the hearts of the iFanboy founders, and this year, we've seen the return of the beloved characters in a continuation of their story 25 years after it started. In talking about the series and its origins, Terry sheds a light on how to grow an independent comic...

Pick of the Week #639 - Batman #49

Josh and Conor are in the saddle, and while Conor is recovering, it's a long road. The fascinating world of Bendis' DC work, and what we're looking for out of mainstream comics remain the topics of conversation, and the ever widening lapses of memory. What were we talking about? Oh yeah: Crimping. And Josh gets cranky about dual Patron Picks! Running Time: 01:05:47 Pick of the Week: 00:01:58 - Batman #49 Comics: 00:12:21 - Shanghai Red #1 00:16:23 - The Man of Steel #4 00:22:15 - Tony...


Pick of the Week #638 - Marvel Two-in-One Annual #1

Conor Kilpatrick's still sick and doped to the gills on cold medicine, while Josh Flanagan is just plain exhausted... it's another week of talking comics at iFanboy. Running Time: 01:02:56 Pick of the Week: 00:02:16 - Marvel Two-in-One Annual #1 Comics: 00:10:19 - Thor #1 00:15:07 - The Man of Steel #3 00:19:53 - The Weatherman #1 00:23:04 - Titans Special #1 00:28:21 - The Wild Storm: Michael Cray #8 00:30:29 - The Magic Order #1 00:33:39 - Mister Miracle #9 00:36:25 - Stellar...
