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 01/18/2015

So sometimes I feel like Comics get the short straw when it comes to these weekly updates. I still read, but it’s more of what *actual* newsworthy stuff happens every week in the world of comic books. Well Marvel came up with a big fat news story that I’m not quite sure how to feel days after it’s announcement. Marvel Comics as you know it is ending. The 616 Universe will no longer be. the Ultimate line, will no longer be. What will take their place will be one universe with seemingly the best parts cherry picked. Marvel states this isn’t a reboot and the history will be intact but then again… DC said a lot of the same things and New 52 was and still is a mish mash of plot hole fixes and back tracking.

Also some other cool shit happened but I’m too busy not knowing how to feel right now.
