Reviews For iFanboy - Comic Books

Feels like it’d be a blast to have a few beers and talk comics with everyone involved
Are awesome thanks for the time stamps
I don’t always agree with their opinions but they at least articulate them well.
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.
I don’t know who sees this, but I’m overcoming my paranoia about social media privacy to praise this fantastic podcast - and to recommend it to anyone who reads comics, or enjoys stuff based on comics, or even just likes listening to longtime friends react to our batshit crazy media landscape. Conor and Josh are fun and engaging guides through it all. Ryan and Paul sometimes drop by, too! Collect all four of these addictable personalities
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

5/5

By GPaez
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.
I'm a longtime listener and have been turned on to so many great books, authors, and artists. Definitely consider these guys responsible for me getting back into comics.
After years of listening, I think it’s time for me to put down the headphones. Unfortunately, with Ron’s departure last year, the heart of the show went with him. Lately, most episodes are downers with Josh and Conor rarely showing enthusiasm or bringing the level of energy they displayed when this show was at its apex. The two seem bored with having to record the podcast every week, and it translates to an uncomfortable listening experience that makes me sad for the show this once was. I’m not at all saying that Ron was my “favorite” or anything and that I refuse to listen if he’s not here or any nonsense like that. Rather, classic iFanboy to me was the perfect combination of the three: pessimistic Josh, flamboyant Ron, and pragmatic Conor. Unfortunately, with Ron and his great kinetic energy on the microphone gone, the show is out of balance and has lost its vibrant flair. Thankfully, sometimes Ryan Haupt or other guest hosts have filled in and brought some fresh energy, but usually the episodes are borderline depressing with the two jamokes’ somber “well I guess we have to do this again” attitude. It bums me out to hear that the spark has faded away over the last few months, but I’ll continue popping in occasionally as I’m sure I’ll miss what has been my Sunday fixture for years. My 5 star rating will always stand though for the years of entertainment that this show has delivered, I just don’t think I can continue to handle the morose and disinterested tone of the show from week to week anymore.
I dropped two other comics podcasts that didn't have the chemistry and joined the ifanboy Patreon.
Want good talk? Want a friendly cast? Want a rotating cast? Want guys that tell jokes that you won't get cause they are still using material from episode #47 and are now in the 600s? Even though I don't get those jokes I still appreciate the podcast. I am too poor to afford comics and I have 2 young kids so I can't even get through the trades I take out of the library, but I love keeping up by listening to this pod. It helps that I run an alpaca farm and the alpacas just love it! Oh ya, if you've got alpacas this is the pod for you. Guaranteed they produce more alpaca fiber!
Been listening since Darryl was stalking the streets of NY. Josh helped clarify the proper pronunciation of “Constantine”. To paraphrase Grandpa from The Lost Boys: “If you got the iFanboy Comic Podcast, you don’t need comics”.
These guys bring an obvious lifetime of enthusiasm and passion for all-things comics to a highly informative and entertaining podcast that if you love Marvel, DC, Image and indie comics – as well as comic-tinged pop culture – you wil so dig this podcast. You can tell these guys have been friends for a long time as they have great give-and-take, and all work togehter really well. What impresses me the most is that they take comics seriously as a medium and give intelligent commentary on all the tiltes they discuss, but they also make it all a lot of fun. If you are a fan of intellgent and witty, this show is for you.
Been around for years and keep at it after so many have fallen to the side. Great info and a great time. Always my first listen on the commute to work every Monday morning.
Even with Ron gone, this show hasn’t missed a beat. Some of the best chemistry of any podcasts I’ve heard.
I’ve been listening to iFanboy since Ron was on the show, left the show and then returned (to leave again). Frankly it is the single best source for me to know what the best comics are to read, even if I’m doing it through trade paperbacks. They are also hilarious and Star Wars fans, so what else could you want? (PS, if nothing else listen to the year end recommendations. At least three of their books have been fantastic that I have read.)
I've been listening for over a decade and now just leaving a review. Sad I know. They have been my ultimate guide for comic books and still remain one of my main go to's.
Great interview with Skottie! Reminds me of my favorite era in podcasting when he was on Around Comics regularly.
I had my daughter listen to this and she literally pooped her pants... in everyone’s defense, she is 3 weeks old. She will continue to listen until she can crawl out the room.
This has kept me informed, up-to-date, and rich in recommendations for over a decade. I love it so.
With over a decade's worth of podcasting experience, iFanboy is very good at continuing to entertain and delight. They're well versed in the world of comic books, and constantly funny.
A comic book culture podcast that once cultivated diverse opinion and an actual enjoyment out of super heroes and space fantasy has slowly turned into overly negative hour long sequences of grumpy old men. I don’t think these guys even enjoy what they read or watch anymore, so why continue on? It’s tough to listen to things like a Star Wars special edition podcast and hear three salty fans wallow in their negativity, and essentially walk away more upset than they came in.
My old favorite podcast ended, thankfully I found iFanboy! Love this show, thanks guys!
Good balance of commentary on comics and comedy.
A delightful discussion about each week's comic book releases. I look forward to this podcast every week. Thank you, iFanboy.
iFanboy was the first podcast I heard and the only one I listened to for many years (and a lot of that was streaming it on the web page), so I'm not exactly unbiased but that doesn't matter. The guys are funny, have great chemistry as actual friends, impassioned, and have mastered the format of podcasting. There's plenty to gush about but I'll just say that iFanboy is an excellent podcast and one of the things I look forward to every week. If 1 is Electro and 10 is Marc Maron, iFanboy is 3 jamokes that is now sadly 2 again. Sorry it took me so many years to write a review!
