A comics Podcast Unlike anything out there

By Eckospider - Nov 21 2019
Read more
I have been listening for quite a while now. Do you know what the best thing about this Podcast is? That no matter what combination of Hosts is on the episode, the quality is top notch For the past year I discovered and listened to the podcast until I got current, and it has been an amazing experience. The passion for comics that the hosts have is contagious (and I love comics already) I recommend this to anyone trying to learn about all aspects of comics, from creations, to collecting, reviewing, reading, relating to other media, specific books and works, manga (I know), working in the industry. They cover all the bases. This is a podcast for people who LIVE comicbooks and I can relate to that. I listen to this every Wednesday as I drive to my LCS to pick up my pulls and I love this ritual.

Good resource for comics you haven't heard about

By FragrantLime - May 05 2019
Read more
The gang at I Read Comic Books does a fantastic job of taking a well rounded look at comic books. The topic is different every week but the podcast manages to cover whatever the hosts are excited about whether that be something from the big 2 or a new writer / artist from a little publishing company you may never have heard of. The only place they slip is if a comic came out more than 10 years ago or so. Their comic history is usually faulty and makes me wish I could issue a correction for them when I hear it. Other than that it's all good. I even find myself going back to listen to older shows when I'm all caught up.

A comics Podcast Unlike anything out there

By Eckospider - Nov 21 2019
Read more
I have been listening for quite a while now. Do you know what the best thing about this Podcast is? That no matter what combination of Hosts is on the episode, the quality is top notch For the past year I discovered and listened to the podcast until I got current, and it has been an amazing experience. The passion for comics that the hosts have is contagious (and I love comics already) I recommend this to anyone trying to learn about all aspects of comics, from creations, to collecting, reviewing, reading, relating to other media, specific books and works, manga (I know), working in the industry. They cover all the bases. This is a podcast for people who LIVE comicbooks and I can relate to that. I listen to this every Wednesday as I drive to my LCS to pick up my pulls and I love this ritual.

Good resource for comics you haven't heard about

By FragrantLime - May 05 2019
Read more
The gang at I Read Comic Books does a fantastic job of taking a well rounded look at comic books. The topic is different every week but the podcast manages to cover whatever the hosts are excited about whether that be something from the big 2 or a new writer / artist from a little publishing company you may never have heard of. The only place they slip is if a comic came out more than 10 years ago or so. Their comic history is usually faulty and makes me wish I could issue a correction for them when I hear it. Other than that it's all good. I even find myself going back to listen to older shows when I'm all caught up.
