Infectious Comic Book Nostalgia

Dear Rob, thank you for your pod. I was an avid consumer of yours, and your peers in the late 80’s and early 90’s. But as I hit my teens, I moved around a lot, and lost touch with my comic collecting. Since listening to your pod I have rekindled my love of comics, and thanks to your infectious joy in sharing your favourites have even found new ones that I had never even thought to consume all those years ago. Thank you for being a positive voice in my life during a couple of dark years!! Please continue to “let the Bronco Buck” as I could listen to you talk about comics forever!
