Fandemite ,

Great podcast for all geeks and nerds!!!

Love your show. Great format where you give the ten cent origin, meet cute, and then the deep dive. I appreciate how you touch on different franchises along with Marvel and DC. I don’t know if you haven’t done an episode of He-Man and/or GI Joe but I would enjoy hearing one or both. Thank you so much and keep up the great work!!!

Here’s 5 more stars!

POD is amazing. Super interesting and informative. It’s like each pod is its own story about each characters stories. It’s really impressive. I’m not sure if it will work with the formula but would you consider doing creators as well? We all know the stories of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but what about a pod on Darwyn Cooke? Thanks again for all the content. Darwyn Cooke pod or not, I will continue to listen.

Amazing Podcast!!!

Hi, Jason and Ashley and thank you so much for the podcast. I’m Cuban but I live in the states only recently, and believe me, being from a country that’s basically separated for the rest of the world makes it really hard to be a geek, is almost impossible to find comics, so I had to find the information about all the nerdy things that I love from whatever I can get. So of course, when I start living here and I find your podcast it was like I just found a hidden treasure. Your lessons not only teach me about history but I also think that I’m learning a lot about storytelling, and you two had given me so much ideas to play with, since one of my wildest dreams has been to create my own comic book universe. Say hello to intern Brego from me and from my own personal interns that always listen to the podcast with me: Ellie, Bucky and Captain Jack Harness.

PS: sorry for the long review, but I would like to suggest an episode on Spawn and also one on all copycat characters that marvel and dc have stolen from each other and why some work better than others
