The best podcast ever....

Love this podcast! Wish it came out more frequently. Talking Comics brings a great trio (sometimes 4) of people together that picks apart comics, comic related movies, etc, they all share their views on it no matter good or bad. I’ve never met them, but it’s almost like they are family. Once a new episode hits, I can’t wait to hear it. I don’t even have time to read comics anymore, but I’m still hooked on this podcast!

Refreshing

I just discovered these guys and immediately subscribed. They keep it light and don’t seem as jaded or burned out as the guys over on Fanboy. They cover more titles as well. Not too cool for the room!

What does the future look like? | Comic Book Podcast Issue #447

Podcast cover

NOW on SPOTIFY!

This week, Aaron Amos joins the boys to talk about a TON of different comics, mostly through the lens of representation and power. In discussions of Far Sector and Black Panther and Miles Morales and Batman and the X-Men, the gang questions what the future looks like—who does it belong to? Who gets to tell the story? Who is valued? Things get heavy, but things stay nerdy throughout. This is a good one, y’all.

The best podcast ever....

By ComicRobb - Mar 22 2020

Love this podcast! Wish it came out more frequently. Talking Comics brings a great trio (sometimes 4) of people together that picks apart comics, comic related movies, etc, they all share their views on it no matter good or bad. I’ve never met them, but it’s almost like they are family. Once a new episode hits, I can’t wait to hear it. I don’t even have time to read comics anymore, but I’m still hooked on this podcast!

Refreshing

I just discovered these guys and immediately subscribed. They keep it light and don’t seem as jaded or burned out as the guys over on Fanboy. They cover more titles as well. Not too cool for the room!
