Great comics podcast

As a former guest on the show, I can say with authority that Jake and Jesus produce a fun format to nerd out about comics. The Grail Tale is completely unique in the ecosystem. Give it a listen, you won’t regret it.

O Wise Tim ,

I’m Back thanks for the help

Just got back into collecting after about 30 years! Love this podcast that is informative and at the same time entertaining! Thanks for all the info you guys share!

No Need to Speculate on Subscribing

This is a must subscribe for any comic reader. The host run down recent pick ups, speculate on what issue will be hot to help you make some cash and then discuss grail tales for the hard core collector. Best of all, when they have a guest from the industry they join in the three topics that shows listens a different side of the creator instead of the typical interview.
