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.

They Can’t Stop

The hosts can’t stop reviewing comics and I can’t stop listening. The show is a great place to stop by and listen to the week’s comics discussed among friends. Don’t want to hear about this week’s comics? How about a week from a decade ago or a comic book movie? They literally can’t stop and it might be a problem, but I enjoy the heck out of it.

Ifanboy podcast review

Really enjoy this podcast, though Conor constantly interrupts his cohosts, and his comments often trail off into a quiet mutter. It’s nice to hear an educated discussion of comics and other media. Recommended!

Focus on Comics

I couldn’t get more than 20 minutes deep into the first episode that I randomly decided to listen to. One of the hosts just wouldn’t stop talking about climate change and COVID, masks, etc. I can only imagine what would happen if I listened to an episode where they discuss the Department of Truth or The Recount.
