Fun

Great times listening to these three guys. They know a lot and are hilarious. Bill is a good host, Jim knows a lot and so does Alex. Great trio.

The Best Show Of It’s Kind

I’m very interested in the history of comic books and this show is the best one out there on the topic. The guys are funny but they stay on topic and deliver wonderfully juicy information. The depth of knowledge on display here is mighty impressive. Keep up the good work guys.
