It's the holiday season and what better way to spend the holiday break than with the total bloodbath that was the most recent batch of Marvel solicitations. Just like the Krampus snatching away young children and eating them whole, some books didn't make it past the last day of February and have been DELETED! Speaking of Krampus, we talk about Hellboy Krampusnacht. We take a trip down memory lane and reimmerse ourselves with the history of everyone's favorite mutants with X-Men Grand Design #1 and jump into another week of comics on The Longbox Podcast!
You're listening to The Panels Friends, a show where two friends talk about comics because we don't talk about them enough in our daily....wait. We've been listening to The Comics Pals way too much lately so pardon us if we accidentally use their catchphrase this episode. Disney has finally acquired the rights to the Fantastic Four and X-Men franchises, but is this a good thing? A light week of comics means even more antics on another episode of the Longbox!
Thought you could escape the Holiday season by listening to a comic book podcast? Think again! Christmas has invaded this week's books with the DC Holiday 2017 Special and the return of Klaus by Grant Morrison. Witchblade finally returns to a new ongoing comic book and we learn what happens when Batman and Superman are giving each other the cold shoulder. All that, and more on this week's episode of The Longbox Podcast!
Ever wonder what a sarcastic Mohel sounds like? Ever wonder how to escape capitalism and adapt to the barter system? Ever wonder what happened to Matt's muscle biopsy? Well this episode has all that, AND MORE! Darkhawk! Reactor! Sword of Ages! In one of the best Fifth Week's we've experienced in a while, the Longbox Boys talk about the best funny books to hit the stands!
The Gods have finally healed the Longbox boys and they are back with another jam-packed episode. Where does Matt rank on the Woody Allen scale? Where's the strangest place Tyler has ever found soda? Motor Girl wraps up with its final issue and Vertigo unleashes a fantastic new book to the stands. All that and more on The Longbox Podcast!
We're back on to our normal hijinks again with another jam-packed episode full of comics news, comics reviews, and ducks making out with humans. Mister Miracle, once again, proves to be another gut-punch of an issue, Squirrel Girl comes out with a zine, and haven't we read this Batman story before? A lot of awkward pauses riddle this episode where Matt and Tyler come to the realization that yeah, men suck.
Some weeks the Longbox Podcast can be jam-packed with tangents and stupidity. Sometimes the podcast can be chock-full of legitimate discussion and dissection of comic books as a medium of art. And sometimes it's a mixture of both, just like this episode! The Longbox Boys are back again this week to discuss the newest comics to hit the shelves. The Jetsons make their entrance in the newest round of Hannah Barbera comics. Captain American is no longer a Nazi. And...Power Pack?! Those and more on this week's episode!
