A newbie-friendly reading club for an otherwise intimidating body of work

I really appreciate the dynamic between Dave and Zack as they not only recap important and interesting moments in Marvel Comics history, but also provide insightful criticism at the same time. Zack is particularly good at drawing out deeper discussion about individual stories, and Dave provides context of how the tale fits into the larger framework and why it’s worth reading decades later.

Listening to the show has helped me appreciate the comics medium in general, beyond just learning about Marvel continuity. Thanks guys!

Wonderful show

Dave, Zack and Charlotte are always fun to listen to as they read through Marvel history and share their insights into the stories, art and progressions of the medium. Reading along (and trying to catch up) has become a great hobby, though I’m not sure what I’ll do with my free time once I’ve caught up!

Informative, Entertaining - The Whole Package

Figured I owe these two boys a review after the hours of free content I’ve enjoyed from them. Currently up to the 80s and loving what they’ve got to say.

I came to this as a comic book intermediate, read a bunch but couldn’t stomach the super old stuff, and hearing them summarize and analyze this stuff has been interesting. And when they talk about stuff I have read, even better!

Anyway they have a great dynamic, seem very kind, and I love them both. We live in a dark world and I want these two sweet little nerds to keep doing what they love and excel at. Thanks for everything Dave. And your guest.

And stilt man is overrated
