Excellent, entertaining (excelsior!)
This podcast manages to be both entertaining and informative, whether you're an old fan of superhero comics, or whether you, like me, only have a passing familiarity with capes and masked crusaders.
Mikey and Charlie are excellent guides through the often confusing twists and turns of looping timelines, splintering universes, robots formerly known as dead, fashionable future warlords and the strange adventures of my new favourite teens. Before listening to this, I didn't even know who Billy Kaplan was - now I think I might be the most recent member of his fanclub.
(sorry about the excelsior, Mikey :P)

This show has so much potential. The conversation is delightful and the chemistry for future episodes are already there. I'm a big supporter. Exited to hear more in the future!
