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.

    Pick of the Week #758 - Captain America #25

    Let's go on a ramble, Steve. We have a lot of Steves. We have a bone to pick with an old co-worker and we have some fine comics, featuring a bit of presidential martial arts. Is this any good? It might be. The thing is, we don't know.

    Pick of the Week #757 - Scarenthood #1

    Come stare in the abyss.... together. Josh branches out, and it brings him great joy. There's a not inconsequential conversation on how old Batman is, or how old he should be, and why it doesn't make sense, or doesn't matter. Then there's the Sims, Barbecue, and video editing preferences. But we still manage to talk about comics too.

    Pick of the Week #756 - Hellblazer: Rise and Fall, Book Two

    It starts off a little rough, and there is concern about Josh's mental state. Further, we never promise it will get better from there. But onward, we forge, with a lot of Donald Blake and John Walker confusion. There's also comics talk and plenty of it, with a surprising Marx Brothers diversion.
