Oh great, Another comic book podcast. We're about 10 years too late, right? Dude, I agree and you're totally right. And we're probably not the first of our kind nor will we be the last. We are a bi-weekly comic book podcast that talks about ::drumroll:: you guessed it, COMIC BOOKS! But not just any comic books. Only #1's. Maybe you've always wanted to jump on to a new series but you're worried if it's worth spending your hard earned dollars? We tell you if the book is worthy of continuing after the first issue. You might agree. You might not. Hell, we might not even agree. But I can promise you one thing! We will give you our honest opinions. •Follow us on Twitter: @N1CBpod (Just rolls off the tongue, right? When I was trying to get a Twitter handle for us I thought to myself what could be better than N1CBpod? The answer is pretty much every other option. Unfortunately, someone already had the handle that I wanted and other handles ended up being too long for Twitter. So I eventually settled on this winner.) •Don't like our Twitter handle? Send us an EMAIL reaffirming what we already think about said Twitter handle at: number1comicbooks@gmail.com (Don't even get me started on the terrible email address. That's right! You guessed it! Same problem as Twitter.) Hosted by: Brian from the Pop Culture Leftovers podcast Rebekah from The Animated Batcast and Runaways TV Talk Rod from Turn It Up To Eleven: A Strangers Things Podcast and Joe from Starkcast and The Comic Cast
