About the Show
Ever wanted to get into reading comics, but didn’t know where to start? Enjoy the Marvel movies or the DC shows and want to really dig into the source? Or maybe you’ve always been a comics lover, but never had somebody to talk to about all the classics? We’re the show for you. Every week, we talk about a different graphic novel or trade paperback and talk about the characters, story, and art. It’s kind of like a book club for comics.
How do we choose the comics we read? First, we pick a topic like “Batman” or an author like “Neil Gaiman.” Then, we dig around the internet and look for the “best” batman stories or “classic” Neil Gaiman comics, and read them. While we choose our topics from a lot of different places, we always love taking listener requests. We encourage you to read along with us and leave comments on the website with your own feedback to be included in the podcast. Below are a few words about our podcasters.

Andy, David, and Jen all met in college while studying English and carried their love of art and literature into comics. We love talking about the latest things we’ve read and we aren’t afraid to break down the literary criticism of a story while talking about explosions and sexy characters.
