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 11/01/2015

Hello and welcome to the 11/01/2015 edition of ‘Things That Happened The Week Of’ where I do you the favor of recapping all the fun and noteworthy news that happened earlier in the week,

Regrettably I feel like I’m going to be talking in circles here in some capacity, that is until Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hits theaters this December. That being said, our entire world doesn’t revolve around Star Wars here at ANTiFanboy, so instead of checking out the new posters, the foreign trailer and new game footage, why not go and check out the Warcraft trailer? Or the Preacher trailer?

Trailers not your thing? Go do some digging for the new Star Trek show announced, or you can feel kind of gross when you hear about how Activision bought the makers of Candy Crush for $5.9 Billion, that’s $1.9 Billion more than Disney paid for Star Wars…. yeah.

BlizzCon happened and DC got decimated more than they ever have in modern comics by rival DC… Ouch.

There’s this and a whoooole lot more “non-Star Wars” news down below. Enjoy!
