Slangword, a comics fan ,

If it's a good podcast, it's a Wonder!

This podcast is a wonderful mix of comics nostalgia, personal commentary, and old-time radio. The I always had comics around, as the youngest of three kids, but there was a special person who I credit with making me a collector, and the Professor's stories, particularly about his uncle introducing him to comics, strike a wonderful chord, reminding us all that the fun of remembering comics isn't just just fun plots or beautiful art, but how they made us feel.

He doesn't skimp on the the comics themselves, though. He also provides detialed synopses, leavened with humorous asides and commentary from a variety of cohorts, including Bizarro, Terra-Man, and Solomon Grundy. Hi guys!

This podcast is itself, a Done-in-One Wonder, but in a beautiful nod to the bronze age of comics, even a done-in-one can hint about the future.

To be continued . . . !

One Of The Best Podcasts Ever

Xum Yukinori has produced one of the most professionally sounding podcasts I have ever heard. Not only that he has taken the idea of picking out a comic and talking about it and made it seem new and fresh. The co-hosts are funny and add to the enjoyment of the show. I cannot recommend this show enough. - Michael Bailey

What a refreshing concept!

I don’t always give podcast reviews, but when I do, it’s for those podcasts that set the bar high. Professor Xum, you have done that!

What first piqued my interest was the subject area; I am a bronze age baby, and proud of it. It was my golden age of comic reading. It was when comics seemed to graduate from the silver age outlandishness to (admittedly) nearly the same level of far-fetched stories, but with character.

What hooked me, though, was the sheer production value of the show and Professor Xum’s encyclopedic knowledge of comics.

I have caught myself laughing out loud to some of the antics among the cohosts!

This podcast moves beyond synopsis and to the realm of audio drama!

Highest recommendation!
