The Best King Kirby Podcast
Mike and Tommy are the most entertaining and informative podcast on Jack Kirby. I’ve been reading since 1978 and I learn something new every episode! The guests are amazing but I enjoy just listening to their memories of reading Kirby Comics! My highest recommendations for any comic fan!
Jacked Kirby holds it down for The King!
Tommy and Mike are the truest of true scholars when it comes to comics and it shines in every episode. Their love and loyalty to Jack Kirby is the heart of the show while banter and wit serve as the brains. Not only do Tommy and Mike have a profound respect and knowledge of comic book history, but they work as a wonderful on-air duo.
One of the best Podcasts out there!! Super informative yet very personal. These guys are great! They always keep me laughing and I’ve learned a lot about the King of Comics.
