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 7/6/2014

Man what a WEEKEND! Steve and I went to ConnectiCon with our fancy press passes in tow and had a grand ole time. We took some pictures and got some interviews, hopefully which will all be up shortly. But as a result once again I am giving you a late “Things that happened” week and while I really tried to bang it out on Thursday I just couldn’t bring myself to do it to you guys. Also I got really sleepy and this laptop is on it’s last legs. And yes I know Sunday happened but I was crowing like a 9 month pregnant woman complaining about my sore hip and swollen and blistered feet. I think somethings wrong with me.

A ton of stuff happened this week and so much that I fear some really good stuff is going to get lost in the shuffle.  EVO came and blew everyone’s faces off, the Emmy nominations came and made everyone mad and DC makes a tough call. All that and more after the jump.
