I wish I could rate it six stars.
I discovered this podcast a few months ago and I’m so happy I did! It’s freakin awesome! I love their humor and their honest opinions about what the comics and trades they read. It really helps me figure out what I might pick out at the comic shop I live near. Good stuff!
Honest opinions and dry humor.
These two handsome boys hold nothing back when it comes to reviewing comics, I’ve listened to about 15 episodes so far and they rarely worship a piece of work. But that’s not a bad thing, they have something good to say about almost everything covered, even if it’s very minute and specific. You cant pretend you have have a wide understanding creating and consuming comics, and these guys hold nothing back!
