One Issue At A Time

Shelfdust Presents: The Fifty Best #1 Issues

Shelfdust Presents is the official Shelfdust podcast! Hosted by Matt Lune, through 2020 the show will be counting down The Top Fifty First Comic Book Issues List, as chosen by comic critics. Each episode will see Matt sitting down with a different comic critic each episode to look at every comic which charted into the top fifty, one issue at a time. That means he’ll be starting with Thunderbolts #1, which reached #50 in the chart, and from there make his way across to the eventual winner of the list – Saga #1.
