Episode 6

Spoiled by crude and childish, meant to shock so called adverts, which detracted from an otherwise interesting and informative episode

ImnotDaredevil ,

Keep ‘em coming..

Awesome idea to dig deeper into some of the best comic runs known to comicdom. It’s all crammed into a hour ‘ish

JeffreyMT ,

Entertaining listening.

Stumbled across this podcast while trying to find something to listen to while walking the dog. Tony is an entertaining and knowledgeable host. Along with his guests, they provide an interesting deep dive look at some classic comic runs. It’s certainly inspired me to revisit my book shelf and to have another look at some of the books being discussed.
