As i travel the highways and byways of the land in a never-ending quest to find new and interesting podcasts, I stumbled upon a little gem called The Comics Canon.
The Comics Canon is hosted by Curt Holman and Kevin Moreau, and their goal is to tell you about the iconic comic book moments you’ve read about, and some of comic series you haven’t heard of. In each episode, the guys take a critical and completely subjective look at the greatest and some of the more questionable stories in comics history. But at the end of the day, each episode of the Comics Canon tries to answer the question: Does this belong in the pantheon of great comic-book stories—The Comics Canon?
As of this morning, I’ve listened to about half of the 34 available episodes. My favorite episodes so far include: the New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, Flashpoint, Batman: The Killing Joke, and the very first episode which was about The Coming Of Galactus. Curt and Kevin will also occasionally discuss comic book related movies, like “Deadpool” and “Doctor Strange,” and those episodes are fun too.
I don’t always agree with what Curt and Kevin say, but that’s part of the fun in listening to The Comics Canon. But it’s also fun when their opinions mirror my own. And honestly, whether you’re a new comic book fan, or a long time fan, The Comics Canon has something for all!
