Comics Who Love Comic Books is the podcast where comedy and comic books meet. Every episode we talk about comic books and comic book related topics with a different comedian. Your host is Brett Singer, a standup comic who has been reading comics for 40 years.
Not So Mad Science - Pallavi Gunalan - Ep 35
What makes Batman: The Animated Series so good? Is Bruce Wayne a bad person? What would a leftist superhero look like? If there were no superheroes, would there still be supervillains, or do the heroes create the villains? Why are so many villains scientists? Is it comic books' fault that people don't trust science? In real life, should we try to make an Iron Man suit?
Watchmen Reconsidered - Ep 34
This episode explores the Watchmen movie, so spoilers for the Watchmen comics and movie. Could Corey Feldman play The Riddler? Why is Marvsen more of a DC fan? Who's darker, DC or Marvel? Why do we like the Watchmen movie that everyone else hates? What big problem does Brett have with the movie? What is the biggest difference between the comic and the movie?
Zack Snyder's Justice League Panel - Ep 33
This episode is all spoilers for Zack Snyder's Justice League. We did it! We watched a 4 hour movie and we're here to talk about it. Brett is joined this week by Frantz Cayo and Brent Birnbaum. How did The Snyder Cut come to be? What did Frantz have to do to get his wife to watch the movie with him? What piece of music does Zack Snyder seem to love? What does Ben Affleck have that Christian Bale doesn't?
Invincible and Much More - Jay Aquino - Ep 32
Is the Snyder Cut worth watching? What was the best Marvel/DC crossover comic? Who's in the upcoming series Invincible? Who is Amadeus Cho? Who is the mutant named Dust? Can any character be fun as long as they're in the hands of a great writer? Why are so many of Spider-Man's villains based on animals? Do readers like it when their characters stay the same? Is it better when a creator sticks with a book for a long time? How are these multiverse movies going to work?
Captain American Sucks - Ronny Pascale - Ep 31
For the record, *I* don't think Captain America sucks, my guest Ronny Pascale does. What does Ronny have against Captain America? Who is Johnny The Homicidal Maniac? What's the difference between Amazing Spider-Man and Ultimate Spider-Man? Which MCU movie is popular with comedians? How could Ronny not like the Civil War movie (he did like the comics)? And much more!
WandaVision recap - Arielle Dundas - Ep. 30
Today Arielle and I recap WandaVision. Spoilers galore.
Why doesn't the MCU have many secret identities? Which Spider-Man cartoon did Arielle watch as a kid? Which MCU movie is Arielle's least favorite? What are Wanda's powers? When do they start calling Wanda the Scarlet Witch? What are the differences between Movie Wanda and Comic Book Wanda?
Brett is a great interviewer
A show that celebrates not so serious things in a respected manner with no wrong answers. It transports me back and has me considering further (re)embracing of comics.
My two favorite things comedy and comics, so this is a perfect pod for me
Great deep dive into comics
I really liked the first episode! Brett is a great host and a really good interviewer and I liked that they did a deep dive into old school comics for this one! Hearing about Archie was fun and I like that it spread out into other areas of geekdom!
