There may be a few times in your life when you can’t read GlobalComix. We get that. You might be out driving, training for a marathon, swimming at the beach or enjoying the company of friends and family. For all of those times you can’t read GlobalComix in an appropriate venue, we’re here to offer you the next greatest alternative: PODCASTS!

At GlobalComix, we listen to a lot of comics-related podcasts. We love hearing passionate fans talking about the things that really, truly invigorate them. While there are oodles and oodles of comics related podcasts out there, here are five of our absolute favorites:

Super Serious 616

 

Super Serious is a podcast that asks, “What would it be like to live through the 616 Marvel Universe as it was happening”. The hosts, Mike and Ed, live in the world of the early Silver Age of Marvel Comics. The first episode takes place in November 1961, when The Thing and the Human Torch have just been spotted in the city but no one knows who or what they are. Beyond just talking about the brave new heroes, Mike and Ed tackle the real world consequences and theorize how it effects the modern world.

iFanboy

 

iFanboy’s Comic Book Podcast is an audio talk show discussing the best in current comic books. Every week, Ron, Conor and Josh (and occasional guest Paul) share what they loved and loathed about the week's newest comics. Their regular features include “Pick of the Week,” “Mediasplode,” and “Special Edition.” If you’re into deep dives into comic history, outrageous tangents, and passionate conversations, give it a listen.
