Hey Kids, Comics!

Hey Kids, Comics!

United Kingdom

Hey Kids, Comics! is a weekly Internet Radio Show in which your hosts, Father and Son Andrew & Micheal Leyland, will pick an issue, story arc, creator or character from the myriad of comics available to talk about and dissect. It can be old or new, a major publisher or an indie, Superhero or Vertigo, heck, a TV show or novel - the sky's the limit as long as the Father & Son duo can find something to argure about. What makes us different from all the other comics podcasts? Glad you asked. We are 2 British people looking at an almost exclusively American art form with love, affection and with just a dollop of irreverance.  New episodes drop on TWO TRUE FREAKS.com every THURSDAY!

Episodes

Hey Kids, Comics! Special 15 - Captain America White

So, ever with their finger on the pulse, Micheal & Andrew look at an OLD comics series CAPTAIN AMERICA WHITE! There's also a lot about Batman Vs Superman and why Andrew thinks memes are terrible.
