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 8/17/2014

So you know what sucks about the ‘full time job-off on the weekends’ thing? The insane lack of sleep I ever manage to get out of the weekend. I woke up before 9 on a Sunday. That is some BULL. SHIT. MY friends. I had no reason to. The SUN just decided to pierce it’s bullshit solar dagger into my eyeball and tell ME it’s time to get up and eat Cocoa Pebbles out of a bowl that closer resembles a mixing bowl than it does a cereal bowl.

But I digress

As always some really cool stuff happened this week, and at the very least a much better start to this week than last. That ‘Original Cut’ of Star Wars being released rumor is building up a lot of steam and in this case I really do hope it’s a “where there’s smoke there’s fire” like situation. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson can’t seem to decided if he wants to go Heel or Face. We tried to kill Jon via fright earlier this week and yet another comic creator can’t seem to keep it in his pants.   All that and more after the jump!
