The best podcasts for Folks that Read and Talk Comic Books

Who am I?

At the Last Comic Shop Podcast, we are dedicated to bringing folks under the comic book tent. We feel the best way to do so is to provide fun, informative reviews of actual comics available that both fans new and old can find at their local comic book shop, bookstore, library etc. As such we focus not so much on discussions of video games, tv shows, movies or other parts of geek culture, but the actual books themselves. (That's a bit of a lie--we will talk about comic book movies--but we pair them with comic books folks should be reading!!!--C) We want to promote reading first and foremost and the wellspring of ideas that come from the comic books themselves. The Last Comic Shop is a podcast dedicated to saving one of the great literary art forms: Comics! We have more than 100+ ever green episodes featuring weekly comic book reviews and recommendations for fans both new and life long! Plus interviews with comic book creators, information on comic book related awards and more.

The podcasts I picked and why

1. iFanboy - Comic Books

Why this podcast?

I've been listening to this podcast every week for over a decade--Conor and Josh run down several of the week's best books. They are honest, critical, and positive. Their show keeps me up to date on books that I'm not reading and their opinions often times help steer me to the books I should be reading. This podcast is great for the weekly comic book fan! --Chad

The iFanboy.com Comic Book Podcast is a weekly talk show all about the best new current comic book releases. Lifelong friends, Conor Kilpatrick and Josh Flanagan talk about what they loved and (sometimes) hated in the current weekly books, from publishers like Marvel, DC, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, BOOM! Studios, IDW, Aftershock, Valiant, and more. The aim is to have a fun time, some laughs, but to also really understand what makes comic books work and what doesn’t, and trying to understand the craft of this great, often under appreciated art form. Sometimes they agree, and sometimes... they don’t. With decades of experience talking about comics, interacting with comic book professionals, this is all about the love of an art form. If the names Brian Michael Bendis, Amanda Conner, Geoff Johns, Gene Luen Yang, Donny Cates, Jason Aaron, Kelly Thompson, David Marquez, Kelly Sue de Connick, Kieron Gillen, Charles Soule, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Scott Snyder, Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Esad Ribic, Rick Remender, Nick Spencer, John Ridley, Skottie Young, Chip Zdarsky, Jöelle Jones, David F. Walker, Grant Morrison, and Darwyn Cooke get you excited, then this is the place for you. This podcast is so good, you don’t even need to read comic books or graphic novels to enjoy it, but it’s a lot better if you do.

George is a wonderful human being to talk to, and his show has so many cool elements, especially the social context around the books he's talking to. His enthusiasm for comics is infectious. He's a stand-up dude and his show is a stand-up show. About comic books, not stand-ups. --Chad

5. Mike and Tom Eat Snacks

Why this podcast?

Ok, this one isn't about comic books at all. It's about snacks. Regardless, it's the best one. The PER system has guided me in both podcasting and life. Tom was on that CW Flash show for a bit, so it counts.--Chad
