Like this podcast before it's cool

Hey, you're a cool guy right? You're up on the hip trends. You know that Marvel and DC are for dorks. Real fans read indie comics. Listen to this podcast and learn all about comic creators before they sell out and go corperate and when they leave and do passion projects. Hosts are smart and hold a vast knowledge of indie comics that makes this podcast well worth listening to.

HoHo the Elf-Blurgh! ,

Funny and informative

The guys who host have a great mix of personalities and they have managed to get me reading comics again after 3 years on the wagon. I actually laughed out loud at some of the ridiculous lavatorial conversation. Which was nice.
