A deep dive into a complex comic

These four guys are clever, funny and engaging in their great work of breaking down and annotating Grant Morrision's The Invisibles. Smart, literate with a seriously geeky sense of humor The King Mobcast finds four guys breaking down this brilliant, dense comic while piling up running jokes. The podcast has evolved into near theatre performance. Their chemistry is obvious, their humor is astute and their sense of fun is infectious. Pooling extensive knowledge of comic craft, SF and Fantasy literature, movies, geek culture and esoteric mysteries the crew explains this deep, dense, challenging and facinating comic. Like a master class in understanding comics taught by your clever friends. I enjoy the hell out of this podcast!

An in depth look into a difficult to fully grasp series

This both informative and entertaining. These guys really do their homework with every single issue.

A great listen for any Morrison fan

In a sea of poorly put together comic book podcasts, this stands out as the way it should be done. The show is incredibly well researched and legitimately funny. They combine an good mix of reverence for Grant Morrison with just the right amount of skepticism. I have been reading and rereading The Invisibles for over 20 years now, as well as reading books and articles that break down the series and its symbolism, but these guys have managed to catch elements that I didn’t already know. Just wish it came out more often.
