Comic Addiction Podcast
The Comic Addiction podcast is hosted by Chris Partin. The podcast goes into the mind of a comic addict who is in his mid-40s and my be having a mid-life crisis when it comes to the comic industry and what comics are worth his meager budget and small amount of spare time to even read comics. The show is recorded from a home studio, but also happens while Chris is in traffic during his 90-120 minute commute (twice a day). Who knows what will happen in the traffic, but there will be comics to be talked about! The show can be found at www.comicaddiction.net and reached via email at comicbookaddict@gmail.com or on Twitter @ComicAddiction.

Welcome back to the podcast that started it all for Comic Addiction - "On The Road".

Welcome back to the show!

Ed and Chris break open the long boxes and review some comics. Some new. Some old. All really worth checking out. DAY MEN #8 brings this series that helped start the podcast (it was our first book we reviewed). ROWANS RUIN #1 caused Ed to that overseas house exchange next summer. WE(L)COME BACK #2 convinces Chris that this book should be a television show. Ed go way back to the early years of BOOM! Studios and talks about POTTER'S FIELD #1-4. And the highlight of the week - BOOM! Studio's PEANUTS tribute book to Charles Shultz just impressed both the guys.

We're always looking for your thoughts on the books we read and the books you're reading. So, be sure to comment below and let's talk about it!

Ed explores a digital comic called HEX11 and talks about the first four issues. You can check out this series at HEX11's web site - http://hexcomix.com/. He then takes some time to talk about IDW's current run of Disney comics and why you should be reading them.

Chris addresses his love of kaiju as he talks about ENORMOUS Vol.2 #1. He then breaks the ultimate rule - he talks about FIGHT CLUB 2. And then closes out the show with ARCHIE VS PREDATOR #4 and how hanging on to something ridiculous can pay off in the end.
