    Justice League Europe #3 | Off the Dome

    Who does the city of Paris love more than the JLE? Everyone, but especially the Global Guardians (who? oh, right them). Will and Kevin admire the balance of humor and action again. They also try to name their top 5 favorite artists and instead name 50.

    Justice League Europe #2 | Split Up!

    Justice League Europe #2 | Split Up!

    The new chapter of the league splits into pairs to track down who is trying to destroy their credibility. We learn almost nothing about that, but DO get to see everyone's powers and personalities on display! And Kevin talks a lot about Back to the Future for no good reason.

    Batman: Year One Issue #1 | Tze Chun of TKO Presents

    Batman: Year One Issue #1 | Tze Chun of TKO Presents

    Special guest episode! We talk to Tze Chun, a writer and the co-founder of comics company TKO Presents, about the stellar classic BATMAN: YEAR ONE. A masterpiece of Frank Miller's hard-boiled detective fiction style, with David Mazzuchelli's sublime art, and Richmond Lewis's transcendant colors - this is one of our favorite comics of all time. Tze writes hard-boiled genre comics himself, is a lifelong Batman fan, and was also a writer/producer on the TV show Gotham, so this story is right up his alley. We get into it. Stick around for Tze's story of meeting Frank Miller when he was 13.

FLYING GOAT. ,

It’s cool to hear people so passionate about something

Great podcast

Will is hot

As a girl growing up I felt forbidden from boy’s club of comics. Thankfully things are changing. Gentle voices summarizing comics page by page. So good! Who knew? P.S. not to be a creep but I have a crush on Will Hines

Journey Into Great Podcasting!

This podcast and these brothers capture the essence of what, for me, was the great fun of collecting and reading comics in the Eighties. That is, hangin out with your pals discussing the books,the quirks of the creators, the weird and wonderful stories, the great and terrible issues....the struggles of the characters, what you love and what you hate. At 48, it is hard to find this kind of witty, familiar, and enjoyable sort of camaraderie. Thank you, Will and Kevin, for this Amazing Fantasy of a podcast. Please keep going and keep discussing the format of the show!!!!!
