Everything you need!

Fantastic podcast that sticks out from the rest. Tony is very knowledgeable and laidback in his approach, bringing the same out of his guests. There is such a mix of comics discussed, so something for everyone!

Eamonn Clarke ,

In depth discussions about great comics

Tony is a very well read and informed host about comics, and he has some fantastic guests on to discuss some of the most important creators and titles of the last fifty years.

Moist Vyper ,

Comic Chief

Tony is a great if not perfect blend of personality and comic knowledge (and ability to read a vast amount of them). If you’re looking for solid and pure comic book review this is where to go. The comic talk is hotter than the vindaloo I’m currently eating (R.I.P my intestines), that hits you faster than the reboot of your casual friend’s favourite comic, and is more informed than what the typical Twitter user thinks they are on everything. I am actively licking door nobs coughing on people and coughing on people to ensure the pandemic and therefore NeverIronAnything podcast continues.
