Customer Reviews

Elroy0415 ,

digest cast awesomeness!!!!

I Love this podcast but my wallet not so much. Since hearing the first episode with the JSA I’ve been searching eBay for these digests (which I used to own ....😡 grrrr). Great job gentlemen keep up the good work.

Digest

Thank you for talking about these great books.Unfortnately all mine were lost during my military movements.Thank you for bringing back memories.

The Books Are Little, But The Show Is Big

DigestCast proves the axiom that “Good things come in small packages.” In this wonderful walk down memory lane, Rob and his amazing friends revisit the small but mighty digests released by DC and Marvel, which collect beloved stories from the past. Rob’s love of the format shines through and will inspire you to hit EBay for some little love....Wait....don’t do that....I mean, yes, go to EBay for digests, but not for love...or, you know what? I’m not judging...you do you.

But be sure to also tune into DigestCast!
