The List

Our mission is to provide the best possible reviews we can for a genre we love. The original intent was to cover 'comic book' movies, but the list kept growing as we've added some sci-fi, horror and action movies to the list. We review these movies in chronological order as a way to see how the genre has grown over time.  

If you’d like to be a guest on the show, send us an email at reelcomicheroes@gmail.com. Let us know which movie(s) you’d like to be a part of. If you're a fellow podcaster we'd love to help you promote your show as well. Please note, some movies already have guests lined up. So be sure to include alternate choices. 

Movies shown with an asterisk (*) have guests lined up.
