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 10/4/2014

This week I have watched more ‘current’ television than I have in years. Seriously, it was gross. I watched about 12 hours of Arrow in a day and a half and now I can’t stop talking in weird Australian accented whispers. I miss my video games…

So on top of a fairly heavy news week New York Comic Con is happening so the normally light weekend became a bum rush of new, trailers and reveals. So normally I say things like “JAM PACKED WEEK OF NEWS!” but there hasn’t been a week more full of relevant stuff to my interests in a while. Some unfortunate rumors came true in the comic world, Twin Peaks announced it’s return and Sony forgot how to launch a video game. All that and (seriously) much much more after the jump.
