Best Comic Podcast Out There!

This has been my favorite comic podcast to listen to! The hosts are knowledgeable and helpful, and they all bring a diverse array of different comics/manga to the show. Cheers!

Excellent Pod

I find this podcast helpful for finding out about new comics. Hearing new tales on comics I already really like. But mostly, as a writer, I find it inspiring and helpful to listen to smart people dissecting stories. Keep it up gang!

Great Community

My favorite part about being a part of the IRCB discord is how much they talk about dental hygiene. Mike is legally obligated to read this on the show.
