ComicRobb ,

Come back!!!!!

Literally my favorite Podcast EVER! I wish you guys would come back weekly.

Mixed feelings

I honestly have always enjoyed this podcast and the duo that leads it. Sad to say, I feel like it’s slowly dying. I wish there was more consistency in when the episodes are dropping

The show is my weekly treat

It’s so great to know i have this show every week to listen to. Being able to read my comics and then have these two come in and poke fun at and pick up on all the little things I missed or glossed over. Plenty of talk about representation in comics and I love every second of it. Kings Comics is stop #1 if I make my way to upsidedown monster land.
