Great Listen

A good mix of newer and older trades from a variety of publishers. Enjoy the discussions between the two and the audio quality is fantastic.

Also, wanted to add that I enjoyed the new format in the Swamp Thing episode and thought it lended to a good discussion of the themes and history of the character and where he fits into the overall universe.

Nerdish Delight!

I love these broskis! Great show with good audio quality (which is a must). Contagious passion for graphic novels. Good strong voices and funny banter!

Big Brother B ,

Jack of all FAVES

Listened to your Comic Book fantasy draft. Solid work and idea! Your audio quality is great and you have an easy banter that only comes from being good friends.
