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

Hello and welcome to today’s edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA The one where we all sit on our hands and wait for October to start. 

Don’t get me wrong September is a fine month but it’s a little like the drive home between the vacation and your actual house. Unless you are a super big fan of the Emmys, not a ton of stuff is going on this month. Fall TV is lurching forward and fall video games are finally starting to emerge.

Which isn’t to say that we haven’t found some juicy news for you in the form of Professor Alan Grant trading “Dynosars” with Asgardians by popping up in Thor: Ragnarok. Titanfall 2 bites the bullet and announces that yes, Attrition mode is coming back and Ubisoft is serious about making Assassin’s Creed a game worth talking about again. She-Hulk is taking over the Hulk book and we got a brand new Lingering Stare for you to enjoy!

All that and more below!
