Fantastic!

Hello! I found your podcast only a few weeks ago but it has become my new obsession! I’ve been going though the archives on Comic Book Podcast Network and every episode is a treat! Your passion, as well as your top 100 trades list, had pushed me to stop procrastinating getting into comics and to just do it. I recently signed up for Comixology and am reading my first book Batman: Year One. I really appreciate your work and look forward to every new episode. Thanks!

Great little podcast

I was looking for a couple new comic book themed podcasts and came across this one with a search via instacast. I like the different themes as I don't need another comic podcast the gives more reviews. I like the focused nature of this one and really enjoyed the best of type lists as I am always looking for good stories I may have missed. More of this would be greatly appreciated as I read mainly via trades. Only slight problem I had is with the audio being a bit on the quiet side since I listen to pods at work and it can get pretty loud. It can be very difficult doing a podcast on your own so I applaud the effort. It would however add a bit to have another person to have a discussion with for a differing viewpoint. Overall a good addition to my comic podcast rotation of ifanboy (for weekly reviews) and 11 o'clock (for lengthier discussion). Keep up the good work.

Mainstream Comic Synopses Recited By A Robot

The production is flat which typically would not be an issue, but as there is no cohost, interstitial music, sound clips, and what-have-you the show easily recedes into the background as the host's delivery is quite monotone. Additionally, the emphasis is largely on Marvel and DC titles, not to mention the show's sponsors, which are not especially of interest of me. In listening to a few month's episodes, I was not enticed to any titles that I may not have been aware of and nothing illuminating was related concerning with those titles that I am aware of. Not a bad podcast by any means, but insufficient for my wants and perhaps more appropriate for neophyte comic fans. Owing to the previous, the "Savant" in the podcast title comes across as hubristic.

Good stuff

James has an honest tone and vibe that most other comic podcasts don't quite get. He's knowledgable about comics and I always get what I come for: talk about comics, not 20 minutes of my podcast wasted with dudes laughing at their in-jokes. Sure, he could use more prep work sometimes, but 9 times out of 10, he's on the ball. Definitely worth the subscription.

Is this podcast about comics?

I listened to the two latest casts. One was dedicated to comic book ANIMATION. The second was dedicated to the Thor MOVIE.Hey James, do you actually talk about comic books themselves? You know, the little books that resemble magazines and have art, word bubbles, cheezy advertisements, etc. in them? I like the movies and TV shows as well, but if you portray yourself as a "comic book savant" then maybe you should actually talk about comic books. Get out of your living room and movie theaters and actually go to a comic book store bro, you won't be disappointed.

Like sitting with a friend

James is a fantastic host that you know truly cares about the topic he is covering. He is so laid back and just wants to share all the knowledge that he has. I look forward to it each and every week. Plus he has this new show The F Bomb Cast Man this has been called the Raunchiest and Vilest show on the net and truer words have not been spoken.(yeah i'm a host but screw you listen to the show)
