You know what’s a signifier of a great episode of The Longbox Podcast? When the show goes so off the rails, there’s not one topic to base this blurb on. Strap in for a strange one, folks, we’re talking Harleen, HOXPOX, the Amish, the Catholic Church, Safe Sex and much more this week! You’re going to wanna keep that thang on ya and enjoy the show!
Like this week’s Silver Surfer, the Longbox Podcast is shouting into the void. Is anybody listening? Does anyone want to hear Tyler and Matt’s thoughts on books like Immortal Hulk, Event Leviathan, and The Batman Who Laughs? Anybody? Oh well, hope those headphones are in, new Longbox is here and ready for the ear!
Listeners, how do you set the mood? Usually, it’s some candles, a little Marvin Gay, and some chocolate. For the Longbox, the only foreplay we need is a live reading of Silvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. This might be a comics podcast but depressing literary classics are what tends the loins of this show. Here’s to hoping you use this episode to spice things up with your partner!
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!
In a world where your online presence is subject to kill your career, The Longbox boys continue to put out this show without any form of editing whatsoever. It's Matt's Birthday, and he has a new toy that'll drive you nuts. Just like our hero, Gwyneth Paltrow, the boys will share their thoughts on subjects they are most certainly not professionals on. But, on the other hand, we do have some great comics discussions to share this week. Prep those earholes, baby, here comes some Goop.
Comics are so last week. Here at the Longbox we are now talking exclusively video games because the E3 hype is REAL. Also, comics don't have Waluigi so what's the point. It’s late spring in the industry so the titles are ripe for the picking. New Thor? Check. New Plastic Man? Check. So enough about our podcast empire, let’s talk about comics.
