A must for comicbook lovers

This podcast has really hit its stride! Long story short, it’s the best comic culture podcast in the world!
Badr, Cesar, Ed, and Ashley (and sometimes Drew and Walter) pretty much all aspects of comic culture are discussed at some point. Comics, movies, tv series, books, animated series, they hit it all!
The champion season portion at the end of every show is particularly good because it's always turning me on to some nerd culture fare that I haven't found yet. They keep me in the know, and now YOU know.

Best comic book podcast

It's pretty simple, this is the best comic book and pop culture podcast you'll find anywhere. I've been listening now for almost 4 years and been a patron member for the last year. Badr Is the hardest working man in the industry and leads a stellar crew starring Ashely, Cesar, and Ed. The camaraderie amongst the crew is always top tier. I highly recommend the artist spotlight episodes as they are the best of the best. Hasta la próxima.

Greatest Pod this side of the Galaxy.

Great podcast. Show is entertaining and more than just comic books. I’ve definitely expanded my pop culture collection because of Badr and the whole shortbox crew. Give it a listen. If it's not your thing….. blame me.
