The Longbox Podcast is back with another edition of the Shortbox. This time around, the boys get their Claws out and tear into the 2005 event, House of M. Reeling after the events of Avengers: Disassembled, the worlds greatest heroes and mutants band together....to just fucking murder one of their own? Yeah, this book is kinda messed up.

There was Absolute Carnage this week on The Longbox Podcast. Matt and Tyler tear into new series like Coffin Bound, Agents of Atlas, and The Island of Dr. Moreau. Why should you listen to this week? Well, if you believe in life after love, then this is the episode for you.
Here at the Longbox, we’re more than just comic book fans and critics. We also have a deep love for the true sport of wrestling and the lack of Samoa Joe bods in comics. Thankfully, Sean Murphy is there to change that with the new vol of White Knight. Don't worry, we also take a trip to Krakoa to talk House of X. Listen and subscribe!
When the American people storm Area 51 on September 20th, will the Longbox Boys be making the Naruto run to alien salvation? Of course they are. Free aliens mean more listens for the podcast! Not to mention the catgirls! Our interplanetary brothers need to hear about Collapser, Loki, and Blade Runner! This week’s episode is dedicated to those locked up from other planets, please listen.
Dear listener, do you remember the good, old days of Image Comics? The mullets, the denim, the cocaine and all those X-Men rip offs. There was a time when Image wasn’t an IP machine and boy, it was beautiful. To celebrate that beautiful period in comics, Tyler and Matt take a peak at the hyper violent, reimagining of 90s darling(?) Glory by Joe Keatinge and Sophie Campbell.
The industry was shaken this week with the surprise ending of The Walking Dead. The sudden disappearance of the financial juggernaut from the monthly releases hit Tyler and Matt hard this week. While there are new launches to discuss, maybe it’s time to consider the Longbox’s place in this industry. Tune in this week to find out if this is truly where your favorite comic show concludes!
What is there that hasn’t been said about Spider-Man: Far From Home that you haven’t seen on Twitter yet? Tyler and Matt have thought long and hard how to make this MCU truly unique and you know what? It’s a guest. Get ready for City Island resident, Tony Ravioli, to drop those spicy meatball takes on the Longbox!
Listeners, what a week it has been. The end of the War of the Realms, Batman Damned, and X-Men: Grand Design has come.
