Some god ol' fashioned comic fun!
Been following Todd and Leonard on their podcast journey and Longbox Heroes is off to a great start. Great discussions on comics, cons, and other related stuff. Fun all around! If you want some great comic talk without actually making it to a store, give a listen. You won't be disappointed!
Love these guys. Great podcast
Was not into comic books when I checked out their last podcast and feel in love with what they had to say. Got me reading some books and followed their recommendations...and now I am hooked. Leonard & Todd are top notch. Keep up the good work guys!
Comics podcasts don't get better than this!
I've been a fan of Todd and Leonard for years now, and if you listen to just one episode you will be too. This is a relaunch of the show they previously did together, so don't let the low episode numbers scare you. These two are podcasting veterans and it shows. They know their stuff. It's my favorite podcast and it will soon be yours too!
