Just what I've been looking for

This is just the podcast I needed. I've been reading comics for a few years. While I've read a lot of classics and entry level must-reads, there's still plenty I'm lacking in knowledge of. On top of that, none of my friends read comics and there aren't any stores near me, so it's hard to find good recommendations. That's where this podcast comes in! One of the most glaring omissions in my knowledge of comics is that of the X-Men, which makes the first episode extra convenient.
