I often read James Blundell's comic book blog, A Comic Book Addict!!, and in May 2017 he posted "So I Wrote a Comic". He described the process by which he and artist Ayoade Abobarin created a four-page comic titled "The Hipster Beard". I wanted to know more, so I invited James and Ayoade to talk about their experience.

I had so much fun chatting with Gregg Schigiel, the creator of PIX: One Weirdest Weekend (v1) and the forthcoming second volume, PIX: Too Super for School, which is available May 3, 2017, at your local comic shop or where finer books are sold. We talked about the publication of PIX through Image Comics, and Gregg answers many questions about PIX v1 (if you want to hear a more in-depth summary of PIX v1, listen to Episode 83). I learned a lot about Gregg's creative process and his love of bears.

We talk about his comic reading experiences, attending cons, a dash of Star Trek, et al, and then we talk about Batman & Robin, Mind the Gap, and Revival, with recommendations from me for Mike to read Daredevil and the totally awesome Danger Club!

Note: There were some issues with Skype the day that Mike and I recorded, so there is some static and a clicking noise through most of the show. However, it was a really good conversation, so please listen in as two fans geek out about their love of comics.

I wanted to take a break from discussing DC titles (though, that's mostly what I collect, so why fight it? :)) so this episode I discuss with Travis the Image Comics series Halcyon (warning: we will discuss plot points and reveals).

Since it took me a little over two months to release a new episode, I now give you more comic talk goodness. Episode 7 was released a few days ago, and now Travis and I continue our conversation about some final DC titles. Specifically, we talk about the end to Birds of Prey, Justice League of America, Secret Six, Zatanna, and Batman. Being the talkative twosome that we are, we end up not just talking about the final issues, but our impressions of the whole run, characters, and creators. We also ponder which is better: a late, but quality book, or a filler issue. Also, the evils of an incorrect solicitation.

And if that wasn't enough, we also talk about some newish Marvel titles that we've read, specifically, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Alpha Flight, and Punisher. So buckle up, hang tight, and enjoy this super-sized episode (2:25:45)!

After a bit of a break (apologies to my subscribers for that), we're back to talk about some (now old) news from Fan Expo and some of the final DC titles before the new 52 starts. Specifically this episode (1:00:20) we discuss Batman & Robin #26 and Batgirl #24. We spend so much time discussing Fan Expo news and those two titles that I decided to split up the conversation into multiple parts (which is why I say we'll take a break and then the episode ends), so look for part 2 very soon!

For Episode 6 (1:26:55), Oddfellow and I talk about a great many things, despite the fact that we tried to talk about one thing in particular, but when you're having a great conversation sometimes you just go with the flow. :)

Some things we discuss:

  • The expanded Justice League line-up
  • Event books
  • More DC Relaunch reactions, especially regarding Justice League Dark and Deadman
  • Retailer reaction to DC's Relaunch
  • DC's advertizing strategy
  • Movie talk: Green Lantern and a little about X-Men: First Class (ok, me trying to convince Oddfellow he should go see it)

Wow. So much for my assertion that I was gonna do more of these podcasts on a more regular basis (as you may recall from the last episode back in January). Well, no use crying over lost decibals . . . or something . . . . Regardless, I hope you enjoy this conversation I had with my dear friend and fellow comic connoisseur, Travis, aka Oddfellow on his comic review site (Update: watch Oddfellow's YouTube videos here). In this episode we talk about

  • The Ages of Comics (what defines some of them, and just what age was it that we started collecting comics)
  • The 90s (aka the Dark Age of Comics)
  • Digital Comics (pros and cons; sharing/stealing)
  • We also discuss the answers to the following questions:
    • Travis's favorite comic(s)
    • His favorite character(s)
    • And which comic character we would want to date (for the 12-year-old in us)

As I say at the end of the episode (which clocks in at 55:02), I had tons of fun talking with Travis about comics. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

It's my longest audiocast yet (at 42:51)! Listening back on the episode (man, I do hate to listen to myself, but whatchagonnado?) I realize all of the things I didn't say, like how much I thought the color artist (Barbara Ciardo) had just as much to do with the success of the book as the two main creators. Also, I need to better describe the visuals I'm talking about (and to be careful of my pronoun usage, among, uh, other things). But enough with the self deprecation, for it is time to humbly offer you Longbox Review podcast Episode 3: A review of  Superman: Earth One.

Doing the audio review of Brave and the Bold #34 was so much fun, I decided to do another. This time, however, I not only review one comic, I review three! On deck is Batman #700, Superman #700, and Wonder Woman #600. Be amazed at how I call these issues "milestones" and "anniversaries" interchangeably! Be astonished at how I mispronounce George Pérez's last name multiple times even though I know better! Regardless of my vocal foibles, I hope you enjoy this episode.

This is something I've been wanting to try for a long time now, and I present it to you now with Episode 0 wherein I talk about the Brave & the Bold #34. Why that comic? Because it was the first one on the review stack. Plus, I thought it would be fun to talk about it. Warning: may contain spoilers and a not so radio friendly voice. :) The episode clocks in at 10:10.

I hope you enjoy this, and please let me know what you think of this little experiment! Thanks.
