About & Contact

I Read Comic Books is weekly panel podcast about all things comic books. Each episode is hosted by Mike Rapin, a long time comic reader and lover of the X-Men. Every week, Mike and two guests chat about comics they’ve read recently and books they’re excited for in the coming week followed by any topic related to comic books–creators, creating comics, comic books as a medium, the comic industry, genre deep dives, societal and cultural representation, and more.

On rare occasion, the show will take an “off” week and deliver a “minisode.” The topic of the minisodes are typically very specific (example: Transformers vs. GI Joe) and run somewhere between 30-40 minutes.


You can contact the show via email at: ircb@destroythecyb.org and follow the show on twitter: @ircbpodcast.
