The podcast we need, not the podcast we deserve.

Even tho they randomly disappeared, and they all pronounce Kevin Feige’s name a different way, this is the perfect podcast.

Great mix of comics and movie talk

Fun and informed discussion on all things superhero, with a very good mix of current movie/tv show news and deeper dives into particular characters both in the comics and on the screen. If anything I’d love even more focus on the characters in the comics in particular.

Just Right!

This show has just he right amount of comics goodness. It is accessible to newer comics readers and yet still has enough meat to be enjoyable for those more veteran lovers of comics. Really enjoy their insights and every episode has me getting more books to read.
