Informative, Entertaining & Valuable
A wonderful podcast doing some genuinely very valuable things with their subject material and delivery. Fictional characters, their origins, their importance, their legacy - these are all marathon topics to cover and yet the wonderful team behind this podcast do it with ease, familiarity and a hefty dose of giggles. Pay particular attention to their analysis of certain character’s impact on or reflection of ‘the times’ as well as their breakdowns of overarching themes. Highly recommended intelligent comic book discussion.
The best kind of school!
Anyone looking for something really fun, really informative but that also does something different with the Podcast format I cannot recommend this enough. It could so easily be just people talking about comics and showing off how much they know but this lot are much smarter than that. There's funny sketches, it's incredibly well researched, it's accessible to everyone regardless of whether you've read nothing or everything but most of all it's fun! The Avengers episode is a particular highlight. Highly recommended and I'm very pleased I found this.
Always informative and entertaining
Comic Book Classroom never fails to provide some interesting background on characters or topics I thought I knew everything about, plus it's consistently hilarious. Always a terrific listen
