He Just had his third kid so support ;)
Dave does an amazing job. The My Year in Marvel is a great trip down memory lane. Zach is a great foil Dave’s professor-like persona. It really is one of the best if not the best comic podcast out there.
Great Podcast to Learn About Comics
Dave is such a great encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to comics (especially the Marvel universe). The background information he provides is so helpful when reading current comics; it makes the current comics come more alive. Thanks Dave!
Great podcast to highten your Marvel reading experience!
The thought and genuine enthusiasm that Dave brings to each episode can't be applauded enough. Not only have I found the Comic Book Herald site to be the best resource to figure out the sometimes impossible to follow reading orders us Marvel fans have struggled with our whole lives, but the show provides a great outlet to share in the excitement and sometimes disappointment we have for these comics. I especially appreciate and love the Krakin’ Kakoa episodes as this reinvigorating chapter in the X-Universe deserves the attention and insightful conversation that Dave provides each show. Thanks for the amazing show and I highly recommend every Marvel reader check it out.
