There are few comic folks we like here at the Isotope more than the great folks of iFanboy. Their long-running, often imitated, never equalled Pick of the Week Podcast features smart and funny commentary about each week’s new books as well as a broader look at the industry as a whole that we all really love.
One of the things that makes the iFanboys such a breath of fresh podcasting air is that, despite being comics critics, they’re clearly still fans of the funnybooks. Too many of their so-called peers are simply yawn-inducing to me, with their endless snarkfests, nerd totempole antics, and lack of class or decorum. Thankfully, our industry has insightful, clever, and downright friendly commentators like iFanboy. Folks who love comics and, like me, like talking about them with other people who love comics.
What can I say? I’m a huge fan.
A number of years ago I decided to seek them out and see what we could come up with creatively together. I gotta tell you, it’s been a great meeting of the minds. Together with the iFanboys we’ve done more than just a few awesome events for lucky comic fans.
And although our recent BATWOMAN Celebration wasn’t an event we threw with them, they still gave us a nice personal write-up on what it’s like to attend an event at the Isotope. It’s a pretty great article, go check it out:
Thanks for the marvelous write-up and awesome party photos, iFanboys. You guys rock!
