I could listen to this all day!

Man this podcast is great! If you have a love for Captain America, or just want to learn more about him, this is the place to go. Very entertaining and the creator interviews they do are are awesome. Just finished listening to an interview with Erik Larsen! Such great stuff.

Like taking a Masters class in Cap Comics

I’ve always had Cap “stuff” like shirts/toys/etc. but never read the comics. Loved when the movies started and discovered the Facebook group and this podcast a few months back. I’ve really enjoyed learning about the comics and those who created them. I’ve now gone back and started reading the books from the beginning. (Currently on batch 160-175) and also reading the current Sentinel of Liberty run. I especially love listening to the shows featuring the issues I’ve just read or am about to read. Keep up the great work. I learn more and more each week. Thanks!!
