Insightful reviews on a wide range if comics.

Joshua and Alex are filling a much needed void in the glut of comics podcasts which mostly focus on the mainstream. This podcast does a great job of highlighting many of the new releases in alternative comics in an easy to digest, structured discussion. Both hosts are working artists and have a deep knowledge of comics past and present.

Rare sighting: Intelligent, articulate, and insightful comics reviewers

Alex and Joshua get their hands on EVERYTHING. Not afraid to review comics from all genres and publishers. You may not always agree with them, but you'll appreciate the way they deliver their opinions and be thankful there are podcasters like them doing the dirty work.
