We love comics!

About the show

Every two weeks your host Greg and his co-hosts Leon and Rahul discuss comics in all their forms; monthly issues, collected volumes, graphic novels, newspaper strips, film tie-ins, TV tie-ins, flip-books, pictures scribbled on the backs of napkins...

If it tells a story in sequence through art and text, rest assured we'll have something to say about it.

If you have questions or comments, please reach us at or on twitter at
