Excellent Industry Talk

Honestly writing a review mostly to say thanks for making this! It's entertaining, easy to listen to and informative while you sit in a cave and draw alone.

thank you

This show delivers in spades a fantastic and informative look into the comics industry for three different points of view. It's one of my favorites and I'm always glad when there's a new episode available.
Thank you for your work. You're one of the best out here and have created a priceless contribution to the world of comics.

Great advice

The hosts are funny with honest advice that goes into the nitty gritty of comics with crossover appeal to anyone selling their own product. A must listen for creators.
