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 01/11/2015

Another week, another slew of news in the comics, TV, movie and Video Game worlds. First off, the Oscar Nominations came out which pretty much pissed off everyone. Spider-Man and Marvel toy with my emotions with the continued teasing of a crossover and Nintendo is slowly realizing how to act like a company that treats their fanbase like utter garbage ala Ubisoft, EA and Activision. All that and much more right below and Enjoy Tom Brevoorts hilarious backpedaling with the whole Fantastic Four debacle.
