    Ross is joined by Jim Fetters again to talk Legion. This time they do a deep dive into all the Origins of the Legion from 1958 till today.  These stories all bring something new to the tale, or heck even reinvent the whole concept of the team.  This is an extra long episode and we think you will like it.

hey,hey it's me ,

Excellent

Just discovered this gem. What a nice bite-sized look at some older comics. Big nostalgia kick for me.

Bite Sized Comic Book Honesty!

“Honesty” is not code for negativity up there in my title, nor is it on this show! The host keeps things quick, and shares his honest thoughts about the topic at hand, but it all comes from a place of love for comics. Some shows feel like unpaid PR campaigns at times, but this one feels real without tipping into the other extreme of a total “hot take” fest. Great stuff.

Fun show!

Ross has a good time sharing a single issue comic, storyline or team. Enjoyable show!
