Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Things That Happened The Week Of 09/27/2015

Welcome to another edition of ‘Things that happened the week of’ starring all the crazy things that happened since September 27th.This week felt like a lot of “doing” more so than showing. The Martian and Sicario both released this week and are both fantastic, other than that Kevin Feige answered a whole bunch of questions that all tell us nothing of value. On the TV front ABC announced that Damage Control is getting its own show which is hilarious because now it feels like a ripoff of Powerless, the show that ripped off of the Damage Control concept in the first place. Also hey! Big self high five to gamers everywhere as SquareEnix has officially killed off that HORRIBLE Augment your pre-order nonsense an Zangief gets ready to take the roster of Street Fighter V to SUPLEX CITY. Finally in the comics world there is some good drama, some bad drama and Mark Waid is still writing comics so at the end of the day everything will be all right.

All that and more down below. Enjoy!
