Pure joy

Comic Lab is an invaluable resource for any aspiring or professional comic creator, but more than that it is a genuinely wonderful show for everyone. The joy, friendship, humor and wit that Brad and Dave display in every episode never fails to brighten my week and make the world seem just a little better than it was before.

The best and only podcast I listen to regularly

I’m not a podcast person, but I can appreciate a good episode of a good podcast now and again. ComicLab though, I’ve listened through every episode, as well as just about every one of their ComicLab Pro Tips bonus episodes on Patreon. Brad and Dave are funny and informative, not just to comic creators but to any creatives and/or small business owners, of any kind. One of the best resources on this wide internet, thanks guys!

Hilariously informative

If you want to know the ins and outs of running a small business and ESPECIALLY if you want to make comics, Brad and Dave have a combined 40 years of pioneering the medium of comics in the 21st Century
