The show was named a “Best of New York 2007” by The New York Press, which said:

“The three fanboy pundits who host the weekly Comic Book Club—Alexander Zalben, Justin Tyler and Pete LePage—have stumbled on something that seems to have been lacking for the city’s comic book-obsessed. Every Tuesday at 8 p.m., they gather with comedians and industry professionals to dissect the latest promotional materials and the origin myths of various superheroes. Add to that quirky musical guests and you have the reigning kings of geekdom holding court for the masses.”

The New York Times says:

“The audiences of comic-book aficionados, which have been growing each week since the show had its premiere in December, seem pleased. They laugh in the right places.”

The show has welcomed dozens of guests weekly, including: Joe Quesada (EIC Marvel Comics); Andrew W.K.; Bill Hader (Superbad, SNL); Seth Meyers (Saturday Night Live); Scott Adsit (30 Rock); Perry Moore (Exec. Producer, The Chronicles of Narnia); Timmy Williams (IFC’s Whitest Kids U Know); Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers); Ed Brubaker (Captain America); Klaus Janson (Daredevil); Greg Pak (Hulk); Mike Oeming (Powers); Dan Slott (Spider-Man); Alex Robinson (Box Office Poison); Cecil Castelluci (Plain J.A.N.E.S.); Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex); Bill Willingham (Fables); and many more. Comic Book Club was recently featured as a panel at a sold-out panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
