Best comics podcast out

No geek talk, just real stuff

AudioConsumer ,

The best comics podcast there is

Too often in comics there is the tendency to focus on characters as if they are real. “And then Batman was going through hard times because Robin was killed and...”
Cartoonist Kayfabe cuts through that B.S. and keeps the focus on what is it important: the creators, the craft and the real world history.

In the year of listening (and watching the show on YouTube) I’ve learned an immense amount about comic book craft, how to approach comics, about the landscape of the comics industry of the early 90s, including the birth of Image comics, and got to hear invaluable insight from great creators about other great creators.

Check this podcast y’all!

Best comics show on the internet

Better on YouTube for the book reviews but a still great fix if you already know what they are looking at. Non-Stop content from these guys!
