Leaving a 5 star review

Nothing but LOVE!

BatJamX ,

Sweet X-mas! Great podcast, Guys!

I'm going to review my own show as if I'm just a listener from back in the beginning. Here goes:

"I've been listening to this one for awhile and it's good to see that they are getting things going again. Joe and Jimmy seem to have many a connection with A LOT of comic book pros resulting in great interviews w/ some comic book legends and up and comers! Always informative and often very funny. Keep it up, guys!"

Wow! I've convinced myself. I'm going to listen every week! :)

And for those whom dont like the sound quality...sorry kids! Really. But hey, it's free and I do it because I love it. If someone wants to provide professional equipment/editing/etc...please do and we'll be as awesome as those other podcasts!

I love CNI!

Jimmy is a truly amazing pop-culture journalist. Always entertaining, fun, and a blast to listen to. I never go out of my way to rate podcasts, but this is a truly exceptional show. If you dig comics, movies, and geeky TV, you will love CNI.
