After 11 years, it’s finally come to this. Avengers: Endgame dropped this weekend to effectively close a major chapter in the MCU. Of course, the Longbox has thoughts on who lives, who dies, and who gets thicker than a Snicker. Join Tyler and Matt as they discuss the end of something they’ve wasted a decade enjoying!
Like the proverbial strap-on on International Women’s Day, The Longbox Boy’s are strapped and ready to go with a Deadpool 2 review! Superhero burn out might be real but we live in a post-Rick and Morty world, folks. The trash of the internet worship a new pop culture god and you know what that means? It’s cool to like Deadpool again. And boy, did we like Deadpool this time around.
Matt and Tyler are back with another Shortbox! This week, we're discussing the 2009 weekly comic experiment Wednesday Comics by DC. This book brought the old school newspaper comic style to some of DC's biggest characters and creative teams. The Longbox boys break down each individual story with their usual hijinks scattered about. Want to know about our newest podcast venture coming to an app near you soon? This is the show to find out. Also, if your name is Jessica send us a message. Totally unrelated, we swear.
Tyler and Matt are joined by the ghost of Kevin to discuss the culmination of a decade's worth of Marvel super-hero movies and stone collecting with Avengers: Infinity War! Can a genocidal, purple-chinned, nihilist become a sympathetic character? Well, we'll definitely try to figure that out. Also, there are some Avengers in this movie too. We'll get to them.
The Shortbox returns to talk about the story that inspired Marvel's next blockbuster, The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin, George Perez, and Ron Lim. We discuss just how much of a fuckboy Thanos actually is, why is George Perez a god among artists, and what exactly that gauntlet is a substitution for.
