Many of those have ended and I will be thrilled to finish them up in TPB form.I am thrilled to find these webcast as you guys are the least geeky comic book fans I have seen/run-across. I am going to try some superhero stuff at some point. I am not really interested in floppies at this point there seems to be a big enough backlog of stuff in trade form to keep me busy.
Welcome Shawn!

Amen, to the trades. I whine about not reading many issues, but when I'm up to it, there's an endless pile of trades waiting for me at the comic shop.

Howdy,

My name is Jon. I just got into comics this last year and because of iFanboy I'm now broke. I don't regret one dollar spent though! (except for the king. ugh. ) I was guided by the hand to some of the most entertaining stories I've ever read. Thank you guys!

Thank you kindly Kahuna!

Well to me the King just read as an allegory of the virtues of blind faith. I felt it kept preaching to me that knowing the facts isn't as important as just believing in something. I think, especially in today's world, not questioning, not trying to dig down and get the facts, is exactly what we need less of. It may comfort some but it doesn't solve anything.

You're right! That icon is tasty looking. Nothing like a double old fashioned! I should make myself one.

Hi everyone. I started getting into comics about a year ago, pretty slowly at first but it is growing rapidly. I think in the first 6 months I ended up buying just under 100 comics, and in the last six month I think I've bought at least twice that many and it seems to grow faster and faster each week.
One of the main reasons it is growing is from listening to/watching iFanboy podcasts.
