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). You'd think this would be a quick episode, but somehow Travis and I manage to talk for almost two hours about five issues! How did we ever get through 13 DC Comics issues in under three hours?!

I mentioned towards the beginning of the episode an interview with the writer of the series at Bleeding Cool (which I did not discuss at the end of the episode as I said I would--sorry, I forgot!). For those that are interested, here is the link: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/11/24/tough-minded-questions-with-marc-guggenheim-halcyon-action-comics-and-more/.

Just like everyone else in the comic book podcastosphere, Travis and I discuss DC’s new 52 initiative, starting with the first 13 comics released the first week of September (warning: spoilers!). We talk about which titles we liked or didn’t like (and why), and whether they were new reader friendly.

So, let us know what you think. Do you agree or not with our assessments? Leave comments here, send email to longboxreview@gmail.com, or if you’re on Twitter, message @longboxreview or @the_gaunt_man. We would love to hear from you!

In anticipation of the new DC 52, Travis and I finish our discussion (1:34:55) about the end of the DCU as represented by Flashpoint #5, and transition into the DCnU with Justice League #1. Towards the end we discuss the price per page of our comics, and one of us gets pissed at Marvel (can you guess which one?). Also, we go totally fan boy with our discussion about Wonder Woman's new costume (pants or shorts?).

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)!

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.

For this episode, I review Brave and the Bold #35.

Thanks for listening!

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.
