Chilled, laid-back

H&V is a chilled, laid-back and well researched podcast. Every episode, Bruce guides us on a journey through the life story of a character, often linked to a current or forthcoming movie. I especially like the conversational ones with a guest - these pop up from time-to-time. I'm drawn more towards the vilains - hmm - not sure how that reflects on me! Audio quality is very good.

Fantastic Show

I'm really enjoying Bruce Leslie's fantastic podcast. While I'm a massive fan of Comic book movies and genre's, I'm not a comic book reader - thus this podcast provides a really useful bridge between the movie universe and the comic universe. The podcast provides great background knowledge on characters I've been introduced to on film and would like to know more about. The show is structured very well and Bruce has a natural easy-going style that is informative and easy on the ear. Keep up the great work.

Great show! Great presenter!

Great podcast!!!

I found this podcast as a result of listening to the preacher podcast (which I also love! Great variances in personas and opinions!).

How glad I am that I found it!

It’s a great tool for any comic fan!

I have always been a fan superhero’s and comics, but until recently (2 years ago) started collecting again.

There was a 20 year gap from when I last collected and as you can imagine I had a lot to catch up on!

But with the help of this podcast, I have caught up on a lot!!

It does not just centre on mainstream hero’s and villains but also some of the obscure ones too!!

The presenter does his research thoroughly and he produces a well structured show! Great knowledgeable guest’s also!

Keep up the good work!
