    Comics Drake and Matt Draper are good. Comics Trope is really good for comics history. Captainstrangelife is really knowledgeable. Earl Grey is from Germany and covers a lot of classic indie and foreign comics.

    There's lot of people that talk about grading etc, but I'm less interested in that aspect of collecting these days.

    Honestly was watching five minutes ago. Just discovered this channel a couple of weeks ago. Great history and insight on characters and creators.

    Love Variant Comics too. A bit more concise than some of the other comic channels out there.

    Comic Tropes is a good one. Professor Thorgi is also a good one.

    If your looking for history it is hard to beat the Geek History Lesson videos over at the Jawiin channel. Jason Inman is a long time comic geek and knows his stuff. His wife can be a little annoying at time though.

    To tell the truth some of the information isn't very accurate on these channels and some channels are just taking advantage of the rise of popularity in mainstream media and that shows in some of them. I find Comic Tropes to be the best so far.. I don't expect people to be completely mistake free but some of these YT channels don't know the most basic of facts "you never knew" stuff pretty common knowledge among comic readers. Many channels seem to make the same lists. The Comic Tropes guy is the only one who seems to go in depth with the material he presents. He is probably the only channel that has presented information I never knew. And he doesn't care just about what made it to film/tv. Or the big two.

    I follow half a dozen guys that cover things besides comics from both the Right & the Left. It's made me question things about this hobby.

    2 that I follow, and sometimes work together on videos, are Comicstorian and Comics Explained. The mainly do DC and Marvel, but will jump into the smaller companies from time to time.
