Comic Lab is everything a podcast could hope to be: informative, entertaining, engaging, professional, absurd, and regular.

This show almost single-handedly got me back drawing again after a 10 year break. Their love for their work is palpable, and their generosity of spirit shows in how they share their knowledge with those just starting out. On top of all THAT, Brad and Dave’s easy rapport with one another makes the...Read full review »

I’m not a podcast person, but I can appreciate a good episode of a good podcast now and again. ComicLab though, I’ve listened through every episode, as well as just about every one of their ComicLab Pro Tips bonus episodes on Patreon. Brad and Dave are funny and informative, not just to comic...Read full review »

If you want to know the ins and outs of running a small business and ESPECIALLY if you want to make comics, Brad and Dave have a combined 40 years of pioneering the medium of comics in the 21st Century

Great show, full of laughs and love, greatest part of my day and will always be the best comic podcast.
zander17384 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/10/21
I’m a graphic designer, not a cartoonist, and I find much of Dave and Brads advice applicable to my field as well as theirs. Plus all the laughter is a real mood lifter. I thoroughly enjoy listening to this podcast.

Brad and Dave have been honing their craft as comic creators for decades. (At least 2).They have also been making what they love doing a viable business in a volatile, ever-changing entertainment market. What will you get from listening to Comic Lab? You get insight on all aspects of the creative...Read full review »

Hey Brad, this could be Dave, but probably not. Comics lab is my must listen podcast, from interviews with great creators to the fantastic friendship of two creators talking about what they love. Every episode has at least one thing that you can ad to your creative tool belt, if not half a dozen....Read full review »
Jay D'Ici via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/22/21
I discovered this podcast just a few weeks ago, and was hooked from my first episode. Brad & Dave are not just walking the walk of 21st century working cartoonists, they’re talking the talk, and they’re a blast to listen to. Inspiration, validation, tough love, and (best of all) extremely...Read full review »

Week in and week out Brad and Dave give excellent advice for creatives (in the form of webcomics, but it can be applied to any creative endeavor), all mixed with great banter and sense of humor. So my friends, let’s talk comics!
Tekilapenguin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
A couple of months ago finances were being reassessed due to Covid. Comic Lab didn’t make the cut. Last week after listening to the latest episode, I realized the amount of joy and information Brad and David provide. So, I’m back on Patreon to get the Pro Tips and access to the discord server....Read full review »

I have recently changed my discipline and focus from comics to watercolor illustrations, but I just can’t quit these two. Dave and Brad have such a way of discussing things that it feels like standing in a group of friends and you get to just listen to the two that have interesting things to say....Read full review »

If you’re someone who wants to laugh while learning about building developing creative online business, try Comic Lab. Brad and Dave are specifically web comics professionals, but as a software and video game professional, what they discuss applies to so much more. Just one episode, and...Read full review »

I came for advice about making a comic but I stay for the delightful banter. Sometimes I laugh so hard I can’t hold the pen to my wacom intuos (which is a drawing table I’ve loved for close to 8 years). This podcast is full of insight and has delivered the advice that finally helped me overcome...Read full review »

Loved the content. But loved the laugh as well as the way the last podcast ended. “The man with the golden laugh” and “Do you expect me to die, No Mr. Bond I expect you to giggle”. Absolutely loved that humour.
D E V I L via Apple Podcasts · India · 10/06/20
For both your comments on the art of creating stories (writer here) and for your frank discussion on mental health. New subscriber and you’ve won yourself a fan. I laughed so hard and nearly cried too.
Fitzbutton via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/24/20
Super funny and informative! I would 100% recommend this podcast to any creative person.
alyo888 via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 09/19/20
I started listening to this podcast recently. I started at the beginning episodes and chipped away at a few, which I enjoyed a lot. I binged about 10 episodes at work over the weekend and had moments where I literally started laughing out loud. The hosts are very good at directing their...Read full review »
JA_Davis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/20
Brad and Dave are seasoned artists and writers in the web and print comics industry, with a lot say and share. The podcast is very entertaining, even if your drawing skills don’t go much beyond a hangman stick figure.
baquiano via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/20
Brad and Dave are funny and smart. They focus on creating comics and making a loving doing that, but much of what they talk about could relate to any content creator or to other situations. One of my favorite podcasts to listen to as a comic fan.
Lolbatsnow13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/08/20
A must-listen for webcomic creators, and a helpful resource for the larger community of artists looking to make a living on their creative talents. Dave and Brad have tons of great advice on a wide variety of topics, and their cheerful friendship is a joy to listen in on
CCAD student via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/18/20
I don’t write comics, and I haven’t read comics since I was a teenager. And I’ve listened to every single episode of this show. It’s unbelievable how it can be so interesting to listen to two guys talk about something they love, even when it’s only a passing interest of mine. If one day I decide...Read full review »
Arcious via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/18/20
I’ve been listening to these guys talk comics for what feels like 20 years but in reality it’s closer to 19. You can’t get better advice it’s simple as that. I’ve looked, I’ve done the work for you. Brad and Dave are the best. End of story

Comic Lab is the best podcast for cartoonists to be listening to right now. Each week, Brad and Dave guide you through the process of helping you get your comics out into the world and provide great advice and instruction. This podcast is amazing!
Will Cartoons via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/20
Brad and Dave are the best at talking shop about comics, teaching you about comics, and making you laugh along the way. Imagine you’re sitting across the table over lunch, talking about all the comics you love, and figuring out how your own art works. That’s this podcast! You will not find better...Read full review »
OddlyNormalOne via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/20
Seriously, it’s not entertaining when a couple of schmucks just laugh at their own jokes for a whole hour, which is a shame because they really know their stuff. The knowledge and insight they are passing along is among the most valuable I have encountered, but fir crying out loud town down the...Read full review »

MacielCorp via Apple Podcasts · Brazil · 04/03/20
I tried this podcast several times but just can’t get over the hosts. They sound like failed radio DJ’s who don’t discuss anything interesting nor fun. (If they do I couldn’t hear it over the one host constant laugh.) Not for me.
The_RyGuyKC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/20
These guys, let me tell you. If you're just getting in to makig comics, have been for a while, or want to hear how a great podcast is produced, these guys will get you there. Their friendship and wisdom resonates on every episode. They are professional and personable. With decades of...Read full review »

The reason I title this review thank you is because as a child I wanted nothing more then to do a comic strip but somewhere around 20 my spirit was broken and I hid in a dark corner of the world denying that I was ever going to be good enough to be a cartoonist. Then at 40 I picked up my pen and...Read full review »

MrQuills via Apple Podcasts · France · 12/10/19
I've listened to a lot of podcasts about creating comics (including Brad and Dave's other shows) and Comic Lab is hands down my favorite. Maybe it's because they play off each other so well. Maybe it's because their advice is always fueled by real-world experience. Maybe it's...Read full review »

This Podcast is amazing! It‘s informative and funny at the same time!

So Brad and Dave: thank you guys so much for creating this wonderful...Read full review »

I sometimes can’t get through the entire podcast. Brad has a very annoying laugh.. Good content though.

Stumbled across this podcast while searching for new art-related podcasts to listen to. I am LOVING it! I love that they answer fan questions and mix it up with special guest interviews, instead of only doing one or the other. It’s great that they can share their real-world experiences with...Read full review »

Brad en Dave gaan op een losse, easy manier in op alles wat een striptekenaar tegenwoordig bezighoudt, van de zakelijke kanten tot de creatieve. Grappig en informatief, een aanrader dus.
Gurby1980 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 07/09/19
I love this podcast! The hosts are two funny best friends that know comics very well. Their insights are a big help to comic makers and fans alike. And Dave and Brad are just genuinely funny guys.
