Two guys who have lots of thoughts about sequential art talk about great Comic Books, Graphic Novels, Manga, and other Sequential Art.
Lone Wolf and Cub
Did you watch The Mandalorian? We did! And the people who made the show very clearly read Lone Wolf and Cub. So we read the first volume of this legendary 50-year-old manga.
House of X/Powers of X (with special guest!)
We get some of the old X-team back together when old friend Ian Ritch joins Alan and Ryan to talk about Jonathan Hickman, Pepe Larraz, and RB Silva’s full reboot of the X-Men comics universe in the interlocking double series House of X/Powers of X.
Ghosted, Vol. 1 (Four Color Commentary Reunion Special!)
We got the gang back together to talk about a book we first looked into nearly five years ago: Ghosted, volume 1, by Joshua Williamson, Goran Sudzuka and Miroslav Mrva.
Get ready for spoopy shenanigans with Alan and Ryan and special guests Ian and Chewie!

20th Century Boys
To start off Season 2 of You Should Read This, Alan and Ryan tackle the first volume of the dense, legendary manga series 20th Century Boys.
Can’t wait for more episodes
These guys are great.
I love this show. It's such a nice, deep dive focus on a single book by two people with great insight and a love for the medium. It's exactly what I want in a podcast and each episode adds a new book to my 'to buy' list
Great show. These guys had great insight on the creators, dove deep on the books, and had some good commentary on the comics industry. I’ll be back for more!
