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 #721 - Doctor Doom #6

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Thanks to our awesome Patrons, we're proud to present another Booksplode!


What's a Booksplode? It's a bi-monthly special edition show 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 Batman by Neal Adams, Book Three by Neal Adams, Dennis O'Neil, Dick Giordano, Len Wein, and Frank Robbins!

Here's a color/art comparison of one of the pages that we talked about on the show as it is presented in this edition versus The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told collection:

We talk and talk and talk and talk, which is good, because it's kind of the point, and you get this super-sized show, despite the month plus of weird comic weeks. It's possible Phil Noto stopped by (he didn't), and Josh's dog makes a cameo. And then we keep talking. Conor thought it was 5 years ago. Listen for any of that to make sense. My goodness, we talked a lot.
