Comic Geek Speak is the best podcast about comic books for fans and new readers alike. Put together by a group of life-long comic geeks, it's 4-5 hours a week of comic book history, current comic news, and a general look at the industry. In addition to all the latest in comics talk, the show also features creator interviews, listener responses, contests, and trivia, lots of trivia. So listen in and experience all the joys of a Wednesday afternoon at the comic shop, from the comfort of your own headphones.
1797 - Top 5 What Ifs and or Elseworlds
Possibly a dream! Maybe an imaginary story! Listen in as the Geeks count down from five to one their favorite alternate tales on familiar characters, and throw in plenty of honorable mentions while they're at it. Don't let the name of the episode fool you, there will be an occasional trek away from the path of just Elseworlds and What If...? branded comics here, but we got Uatu's permission first so everything is fine. Although step on the wrong branch, and history will be rewritten once more! (2:36:56)
MTB033 - Murd's Time Bubble: The Thirty-Third Time
Just when it seemed that auld acquaintance would be forgot, Murd resurfaces at the helm of the Time Bubble, with remembrances of comics milestones past (Miller, mutants, the Man of Steel, and more!) to banish your 2020 blues. Ring in the new with a dash of the old, courtesy of Murd! (3:09:28)
1796 - Comic Talk
We bid farewell to 2020 with one final whammy of a Comic Talk! Shane, Chris and Ian give their spoiler-filled thoughts on the newly released to streaming (and theaters) Wonder Woman 1984, Ian touches spoiler-free on Pixar's Soul, Murd gives us a post-Christmas book report on Santa: The Life and Times and a comic book adaptation of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys, Shane updates us on his GI Joe scores of late, Chris discusses Doomsday Clock now that he's read it all the way through, Ian finally enters the world of Black Hammer and tackles the Juggernaut, and we give a spoiler-filled discussion on The Mandalorian Season Two to close us out. Plus, Muddle the Murd! Bring it on, 2021, we're coming for you. (1:38:49)
Christmas - Frosty the Snowman
For this year's 'Merry Christmas' monologue, Murd thaws out a winter wonder: from 1950, the very first portrayal in prose of that jolly, happy soul, Frosty the Snowman! Put your earbuds on and have some fun, now before he melts away! (5:19)

Thank you, Gentlemen. Excelsior!
I really enjoyed this podcast very informative!
I’m really enjoying the spot on Shazam. I learned about your podcast when I heard your commentary for the The Adventures of Captain Marvel and decided to check it out. So glad I did. These days I have relegated my comic obsession to just Captain Marvel?Shazam, however that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy episodes on other characters and subjects. After all, podcasts don’t take up any space in my already full bookshelf and storage box. Thanks, guys and keep up the great work.
