Very informative but . . .
They seem to have become jaded when it comes to reviewing comics and come at the job as if it’s a slog rather than a fun hobby and with so many comic book blogs and podcast out there I don’t think anyone would miss them if they were to just stop. Sounds harsh but hearing them complain about the books they have to read when no one’s telling them to read the books is a big turnoff. Having said that it’s nice to hear them when they are actively excited about a storyline or comic. Their film reviews are also informative but they come from a very “fanboy” pov at times which is very off-putting. The recent review of Wakanda forever is a good example of it. Being bothered by the way namor’s name is pronounced is a stupid nitpick and I think they tend to miss the big picture of some films to instead focus on minute details that only a knee deep comic nerd would catch. I’d say my favorite topics are the booksplode episodes cause they can get really deep into a complete story rather than criticize chapters of a story, which is what they do with pick of the week.

Josh, Ron, and Conor do a great job on this wekkly comics review show. I've just been turned onto it and I'm already hooked; going back and listening to all their old shows. They've each got somewhat different tastes, and it's fun to hear one of them discover a new book or...Read full review »

Fantastic comic podcast by a bunch of guys who really know their stuff. There is no pretentiousness or book snobbery (well maybe a bit) and it's presented in a way that is really natural unlike a lot of comic podcasts where the hosts try to be 'zany'! 9 out of 10 - a point was dropped...Read full review »
