Episode 149: Samoa Joe

Episode 149: Samoa Joe

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!

Episode 148: Area 51

Episode 148: Area 51

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.

Episode 147: Bathwater

Episode 147: Bathwater

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!

Punisher: War Zone Special

Punisher: War Zone Special

The world is mere weeks away from the end of an era with the release of Avengers Endgame. As audiences around the world prepare for a brand new day for the MCU, the Longbox wanted to explore an era of Marvel films that are a bit less beloved. Matt and Tyler watched Punisher: War Zone and let's just say, a little nu-metal and gratuitous violence makes for some excellent discussion.

Episode 135: A Helping Hand

Episode 135: A Helping Hand

Help us, Father, cause we’re back on our bullshit. This week on the Longbox, Tyler and Matt are a few beers in and their perspectives have grown. New indies are explored. Old favorites have been revisited. Breaking news announced. Another classic Longbox episode dropped for our listeners benefit! Get those headphones ready, listeners, get ready for the goodness.

Episode 134: The Bell Jar

Episode 134: The Bell Jar

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!
