Sit back and hear one of the best episodes of the podcast, yet!
We asked you guys a simple question, "When you think of a battle taking place AT the statue of Liberty in a movie, what movie do you think of?"
We finally pull back the curtain and settle the score on the recently much debated topic.
A 5-star podcast by 5-star people
The title says it all. If you like comics or things comics-adjacent, give it a listen. The hosts give an earnest look at life, pop culture, and comics from the perspective of comic shop employees with no pretense or posturing. Good people having good talks. Check it!
Finally! A podcast for me and people like me
This podcast is awwwwwesome! Not only is it apparent that these guys have a passion for the industry, but the interviews with comic book creators and artists are fascinating. The conversations are always very enlightening and often quite humorous. Recommended to anyone with an interest In comic books. My only suggestion is MORE VALERIE!!!
Great talk from the comics retailers POV
Jermaine and Stephen (and their rotating on mic crew), of the excellent comic shop, Acme Comics, in Greensboro, NC, talk comics from an often unheard perspective, that of the people selling them. There are comics reviews and discussion of comics' current events, but the real point of distinction, and what I enjoy most, is when their know-how and experience as retailers informs the conversation, how a book's content or a current event affects their jobs or how they do their job in response to those things. When they engage in "real talk" I do some real listening.
