Reviews For iFanboy - Comic Books

Issues I would have never wanted to buy I end up turning the podcast to go read before finishing the episode because of the love and enthusiasm these guys give their picks.
I’ve been listening for way over a decade now, and the show is still just as fun, informative, and in-depth as ever. These two know their comics, know what they like, and know how to keep the listener interested. My favorite parts are the Pick of the Week, the Paterson picks, and the email questions that they (usually) answer at the end of the show. I also enjoy the tangents they go off on each episode. And although I’m not one for the super powers they bestow on a few listeners each week, there is still plenty of light-hearted entertainment for any true comic book fan.
Although I listen to their pick of the week podcast, I come here more for the film reviews more than anything. Spider-Man has been out for 6 weeks now and has set an ungodly amount of Box Office records (even my dad saw it) and no review posted?! Also Zack Snyders JL is a comic book brought to life and deserves attention from guys who call themselves ‘fan boys’. I have more fandom in my pinky finger than these guys.
Complain a lot about having to read comics and do a podcast.
They can talk in complete sentences! About comics!
I listen to the reviews usually. I skip past the ads now, because they take so long. Then I listen to the rest of the reviews then turn it off. It’s not bad for what it is.
I don’t always agree with their opinions but they at least articulate them well. Update: O don’t mind ads but do they have to be 5 minutes long? Jeez
I wish i could have found this pod earlier.
Can’t listen in car with kids
I've been listening to these jamokes for years now and this last episode hit me like a piece of rebar falling off the back of a truck while I'm doing 90 on the highway. There are not enough podcasts that cater to my love of olive garden appetizers, too young pop musicians, and personaly recommendations of comics for people who you used to work with and will never actually hear your recommendation because they don't listen to the podcast. A great podcast to recommend to your mom. Definitely deserves all the 5 star ratings. Ratings.
Why was Amazing Man outta place?
Just finished episode 727 First time listener Really enjoyed Long time comic collector Stuck home Cataloging my collection Perfect opportunity Funny just finished rereading Thor 364-366 frog story and your Podcast email mentions Writer/Artist , so I think of Walt Simonson. Which you mentioned Of course Not to mention I’m a big G.I. Joe fan, with many comics My sons watched the show you reviewed They became fans Once I flipped thru some of their comics I started buying I happen to be Vietnam Vet. U.S. Army, some how made it home!!
Off the hook!
If you’re looking for a podcast about comics this is it. I’ve been listening to these guys for over 10 years now, and no other comics podcast comes close. They give very professional objective viewpoints, while remaining entertaining. I look forward to every Sunday because of these guys. I can’t recommend it enough.
Another year, another fantastic Year End All-Media Show. Now just gotta find the time to watch/listen to/read everything they recommended. One of my favorite show to chill out to on a quiet Sunday evening. They're all gdats in my book.
If you're into or at all interested in comics, this is a great podcast to subscribe to. Ron, Josh, and Conor know their stuff. Reviews are honest and interaction with the community is strong. Give it a shot, I think you'll find it both enjoyable and informative. 2019 update: These guys are pros. Makes reading comics more enjoyable.
I haven’t read comics since the late 80’s and yet here i am every Sunday night. I can’t explain it nor do I want it explained. I’m guessing it relates to me on the level that it is guys my age talking pop culture etc. I won’t lie, I miss Ron’s presence but I still love the show with Josh and Connor. It’s just different, you love both of your kids...just differently. These guys are the rebar gouging the competition. Keep it up!
Joey Esposito quit ogn and his podcast so these are the only ones left! But for real they're great and I love that they talk about the books and give spoiler warnings. I hated comic book shows that wouldn't talk about the comic books in depth.
Connor and Josh are great and fun to listen to and funny. Ron is pretty good in small doses but Ryan is obnoxious and if I see his name in the description I skip those ones. Otherwise great podcast with great speakers. Thank you for taking the time to put these out every week gentleman!
Feels like it’d be a blast to have a few beers and talk comics with everyone involved
Been listening for years, love the personalities and the recommendations
I've been listening to them off and on for years but I think its about time to move on. Most of the books they dislike I love, most of the ones they love I wouldn’t waste my time with. The worst part of it is they feel the need (usually indirectly) to let us know how unhappy they are with Trump. I want to hear about comics not your political views!! And dont get me started on Josh...the dude is just a downer.
If you need more comics to read, this is a podcast you need to check out. If your pull list is already too large, then you have a problem that doesn't really exist. The folks behind iFanboy do a great job of introducing new comics, tackling some of the big comic-oriented media properties out there, and giving you insights into the comics world. Give this show a listen. Your pull list won't thank you, but your brain will!
The folks at iFanboy deliver great lively, incisive and informative views on current popular comics and graphic storytelling. Essential listening that keeps people coming back for more. Thank you so much Josh, Conor, and everyone who makes it happen.
Even when I take a break from reading comics, I’ll still listen to iFanboy to stay up to date with the comics, but also because they’d just always entertaining.
If you’re looking for an up to date podcast on comic books subscribe now, this is it. They’ve done this for a long time and it shows in the quality of reviews, interviews and the show overall.
Decent podcast but listener beware: podcast descriptions do not warn u of spoilers - reprehensible! ...had to stop listening for this reason.
Been a fan since the getgo, can’t believe it took more than 10 years to write a review. It’s the best out there, I never stopped listening, EVEN when I stopped reading. I miss Ron
A few nuggets of interesting insight floating in an ocean of pretentious and condescending opinions.
Been listening for a couple of years and was a borderline fan. I do like their format, but often their energy level is so low they don’t seem to enjoy what they do. And in my opinion, Josh comes off as condescending. The solo Josh episodes pushed me over the edge, so I’m looking for a new podcast.
I've been listening to this podcast for over a decade, which is an absolutely wild thing. ifanboy was my first podcast back on my ipod classic, and before people even knew what podcasts were. This is the podcast I start my week with and look forward to the most the following week. The hosts (currently Josh and Conor, and the elusive Ron when he's not employed by comic book publishers) are some of my favorite people in podcasting. They do it because they love comics and spending time with each other and we the listeners are lucky enough to be included on their conversations. I don't have a lot of friends who enjoy comics or similar media, and that's why I love ifanboy. It's like checking in with friends whom I've never met in person and getting their takes on the week's new books. The podcast reaches perfect when they discuss old G.I.Joe cartoons, and the hosts own laughter brings the podcast to a halt. ifanboy is a part of my weekly routine at this point and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I’ve been thinking about this review for 3 years now. The hosts are incredibly knowledgeable, but more importantly (in my opinion) very charismatic and likable. They have a great chemistry together. This has made me read comics in a different way and challenged me to better articulate why I like them. You should definitely listen to this if you like comics, humor and intelligent critiques. If 1 were Electro, this podcast would get a 10. Or a 1. To be honest I don’t understand that scale.
Very knowledgeable- but I miss Ron
I've listened to several comics podcasts and this is easily the best one I've listened to. I listen every week and always enjoy it. This is one of the podcasts I look forward to most. Listen. You won't regret it.
The guys at iFanboy have been doing this for a long time, and it shows: they’re pros. More than anyone else, they can explain why a comic is good, or why it’s not for them (which, as they’re the first to point out, doesn’t mean it’s bad). I’ll admit to being biased: I’ve been listening to them every week (or more, with special shows) for more than a decade. In that time, I’ve dropped a lot of the comic shows I used to listen to. Others have petered out. Josh and Conor have kept going, and only gotten better.
The best and most informed comics based podcast available.
Great comic book podcast. Fun and Informative. Check them out.
This is one of my favorite podcasts. I wait for the list to come out then listen after rreading the books. They breakdown each issue with great insight.
Josh and Connor (and formerly Ron) have been my favorite source for comic reviews ever since I got back into the medium seven-ish years ago. Their reviews are honest, and they have well-established likes and bugaboos. The show is funny, without being crass. While the hosts are all men, they are not the sort of Comics Bros that give the form a bad name. Thanks for putting out a good show every week!
A very clever blend of interesting content up to date news and familiar jokes highly highly recommend it have a list of this for far too long I feel like I know these guys you will not waste one second of your time if you listen to

I’ve been listening in reverse order for months and I’m nearly done. Through more than 600 episodes and for more than 10 years these guys have been bringing great comic punditry to the masses. They’re entertaining, insightful and truly love and respect the medium. Listening to these guys has helped shape my specific comic book tastes and I’m all the better for it. I can’t heap any more praise. We’re lucky to have them.
These guys are true GDATs and I’ve been a listener and fan for over 12 years now. Now a happy Patreon. Keep it up fellas!
This is a book I'd seen but knew nothing about, so when I saw it came up on Booksplode, I knew I had to read it. I'm glad I did. Truly a great work by Warren Ellis, and I'm glad the iFanboys prompted me to look it up. Thanks for the suggestion, guys, and excellent Booksplode!
Want to hear about comics and far left politics? Want to hear baby Trump hands jokes that have been done to death? Want to hear two guys agree on EVERYTHING? Then this is the podcast for you!
They are like the Jonathan Golds' of comic book criticism.
The hosts do a good job having interesting things to say about the week's books and also keeping it entertaining and down to earth.
