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 4/10/2016

Hello and welcome to another edition of Things That Happened The Week Of – the 4/10/16 edition. AKA the week where your dear writer pooped on the universally adored Rogue One teaser trailer.
