A blast to listen to Rob speak!

I was in born in ‘89 and so grew up in the 90s and my first time dealing with comics was xmen because my older brothers. As I got older I love to hear older generations speak about their time with comics. That’s why I love collecting. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us.

If you love comics this podcast is for you

Like him or not, Rob’s love for comics is undeniable and his enthusiasm is contagious. I’ve loved his art since I was a teenager and to hear all the stories and his excitement for the comic book medium still today is great.

Education

I’m glad that this podcast exists to educate people. So many people say things and they just don’t know the facts. Like I saw a comment the other day about how Supreme is a Sentry ripoff when Supreme came out in 1992 and Sentry came out in 2000. How does that work? Thanks for educating everyone!
