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 1/31/2016

Hello and welcome to ‘Things that happened the week of’ 1/31/2016 edition.

We had some notable things happen these last seven days with the unfortunate passing of character actor Abe Vigoda but things felt like they got better with some fun trailers involving Pets, Detective Pikachus and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Personally I’ve been swimming in Betas this past week which is great and all but The Division is easily the most notable of the bunch. DC also made it into the news big this week with their reimagining of the Hanna-Barbera properties, with …. mixed results. Now I should say that none of these comics are launching until May but our first impressions range from “Hell Yeah!” to “WTF”

Clearly that was not all that happened this week. For the rest, click the links down below! Enjoy.
