Kris Straub and Abby Howard are prolific artists whose works weave in and out of comics, comedy, and horror. Being someone who has enjoyed their work independently, I’m thrilled to see them launch a podcast together. Kris is a seasoned creator and his other podcasts, not unlike the McElroy brothers, are consistently satisfying. Can’t wait to see what these two bring with this new project!
So far so good!
Too smart and interesting people talking about what they love. Great show!
Really interesting and fun
Both Kris and Abby have really interesting thoughts on horror, and they're really fun to listen to. Lots of good horror recommendations in here as well. Hopefully they get together and make some more episodes soon!!!
