Comics! by Cartoonist Kayfabe
"Cartoonist Kayfabe" is the brainchild of two hyperactive comic creators, Ed Piskor (X-Men Grand Design, Hip Hop Family Tree) and Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac, Mtsyry: Octobriana 1976) and it's one of the most interesting podcast/video dissection of roughly five decades of comic book history (from the 70s to today, with a strong emphasis on the 90s, "the dark ages" of mainstream comics when every superhero had turned into a many-toothed, pouch-wearing demented clone from an alternate future).
I've discovered countless new fascinating creators thanks to those two guys, and if you're not well-versed into the history of the medium, their YouTube channel will be your best entry point into the art form.
'Kayfabe' has almost become a synonym for interesting comics these days (many comic book shops have a Kayfabe corner) and it seems they're on the verge of becoming an actual brand as their Spreadshirt shop indicates.
Lots of interesting posts can be found on their Instagram account too, like this one below which will give you an idea of how influential they've become!
(Note: I just learned something I didn't know while researching where the word 'Kayfabe' came from, it's used in professional wrestling to indicate the necessary suspension of disbelief in non-wrestling related events such as feuds or gimmicks.)
Here's their introduction video if you want to learn where they're coming from.
