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.

Rank #2: Talksplode #85 - Tom King

Podcast cover
Read more

Thanks to iFanboy Patrons, it's Talksplode time.

Back when we relaunched the regular Talksplode episodes almost exactly 3 years ago, Tom King and Mitch Gerads were my first guests. His Batman run was just about to start, today a whole lot of comics have come out of Tom's head. He's still working on Batman, wrapped up the amazing Mister Miracle, also with Mitch. Mr. King is back, and we go deeper than ever, including his mom's hand in the invention of an amazing digital format, and what is really happening with the end of his Batman story. And plenty more, leaving you, the listener, this gift of a super long episode.

You can follow Tom on Twitter.
