A bold, new era of the Longbox begins here! For first-timers and old fans, welcome to the bi-weekly show. To show how dedicated this show is growth and change, we’ve decided to do our own grimdark reboot of the podcast. Starting with Spawn, the show is now gritty and extreme. These are our Image Years!
Three years into the show and it’s come to this. One of our hosts, Matthew Murphy, has been canceled. Welcome to the trial of the century, listeners. Live from Tyler’s Toolbox, this is the end for one of our own. Brace yourselves, everyone, a bold new era for the Longbox begins on this week’s episode! Don't worry, we also talk comics.
Comics Twitter might have devolved into a fight club this week but the Longbox prefers to avoid drama. This podcast cares about comics and on this week’s show, Matt and Tyler are pleased to see continuity acknowledged. Your favorite hosts might not support the prison-industrial complex but it was wonderful to see Beast put behind bars after years of crime to the timeline. Break out those headphones, listeners, the podcast goes pundit this week with full coverage of the Prisoner X, Meet the Skrulls, Doomsday Clock, and more!
Listen, we know what you’re thinking. We get it, the industry is on fire. People are breaking into stores and the last thing you need are more white guys expressing their opinions from their parents’ basement. We love comics and we’re as tired of seeing grown adults cry about them online as much as everyone else. So we hope you’ll give us a shot this week as we talk about a lot of the books we’re enjoying.
Episode 63: Orca vs. Tentacles! Matt and Tyler are back and all red! No we're not commies, we just had a little bit of a redesign. This week, we finish up the D.C. / Looney Tunes crossover comics and delve into a new Marvel event. Matt explains his fear of loud noises and Tyler talks about his love of Broadway musicals and which to adapt into comic books. We also talk about some new #1's from both Valiant and Black Mask comics. Also Howard Chaykin. We had to.
Episode 48 is out! This week, Matt tells a harrowing tale about his adventures with a very niche facebook group. Tyler is also afraid of microwaves and their spying tendencies. Also, comics. Matt and Tyler both loved Head Lopper, discuss Jim Lee's art "returning" to Marvel comics, and try taking another bite out of Vampirella which left a bad taste in their mouths for the second year in a row.
