Comic Gold!

Have you ever questioned the cover of a book but once you finished it thought, "I'm glad I read that." That's this podcast in a nutshell. Jason, will drop gem after gem on you. He takes in feedback and pushes out content. Give him a listen if you like comic books, to laugh, and really just to hear a genuine person talk about dealing with real life things.

Too much swearing

Can’t listen in the car with kids, curses every other sentence

I’ve reviewed before, but I’m reviewing again! Whether it’s a monthly show or a quarterly show, I’m a fan! Jason does a great job in spreading his knowledge that can help you be better at selling comics-unless you’re like me. I don’t sell, but I still love to listen.
