I’ve only recently read the series thanks to the awsome absolute editions from DC/Vertigo, and love the series.Â Attending an event like this sounds like a load of fun.Â If you plan on going, you can reserve your ticket here.

“It’s always refreshing to come upon a podcast that is done by people who SHOULD be podcasting.Â These guys do a great job of talking all things comics and pop culture.Â They’re geeks without being losers. That’s a good thing.Â Keep up the great work guys.” -Bighonkin
“These guys have it all down!Â A professional format, great topics, and opinions that aren’t just lip service.Â The three person format works great, and the diversity of the speakers make sure that everyone from the neophyte to the seasoned veteran will enjoy it!Â I highly recommend this podcat for anyone who wants a REAL opinion about comics, not just the same old company lines you get from some podcasts.” - Lost Hours
This is a great podcast.Â I was turned onto this podcast by another and was pleasantly surprised.Â Stephen, Matthew, and Rodrigo are great together.Â Their reviews of comic books are great and very detailed.Â Just listen once and you will be back every week.” – Morpheus11
