And there came a day unlike any other, when three young heroes banded together. Their mission, to explore comic series and storylines no one pop culture junkie could discuss alone. On that day was formed THE FANBOY POWER HOUR!

It's quiet. . .perhaps too quiet. An ominous calm hovers over the Hour, as what starts as another fun-filled episode takes a segue (one of many) that leads to perhaps the single most nit-picking epic brawl in the history of the Hour! Will any emerge with their sanity unscathed?! An epic battle of fan will is but one highlight of a pretty damned fun (and slightly rambling) episode of THE FANBOY POWER HOUR! Titles discussed this week include ACTION COMICS, SMALLVILLE SEASON 11, LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT, ALL-STAR WESTERN, EARTH-2, HUNTRESS/POWER GIRL: WORLD'S FINEST, AVENGING SPIDER-MAN, WEB OF SPIDER-MAN, IRON MAN, DEADPOOL, 47 RONIN, SUPER DINOSAUR, GUARDING THE GLOBE, SHADOWMAN, THE NEW CRUSADERS AND DC COMICS: THE SEQUENTIAL ART OF AMANDA CONNER!

Cody's Picks: Action Comics(DC Comics), 47 Ronin (Dark Horse Comics), DC Comics: The Sequential Art of Amanda Conner.

Stacy's Picks: Action Comics(DC), Smallville Season 11(DC), New Crusaders(Red Circle Comics).

Ryan's Picks: Earth-2 (DC), Deadpool(Marvel), Shadowman(Valiant Entertainment).
