Always enjoy hearing discussions about Comics. I skim Comics too easily and love hearing points I missed or getting background info about writers and artists. Great points are brought up and sometimes argued over.
Matt and Damian are two comic book connoisseurs. I don't always agree with their opinions, but they challenge my attitudes and assumptions about the comics I read. Their love of the medium is apparent, and I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to listen to thoughtful and intelligent comic book commentary.
