Simply a great show.

There are three things I like quite a bit: comics, horror, and podcasts. So imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered someone combined all three!

The Longbox of Darkness is a podcast covering horror comics hosted by Herman L. Every episode does a deep dive into a particular horror comic or collection of comics describing the story, the art, and the time the comic was published. The topics include classics from the Golden and Silver Ages, as well as the 70s resurgence in horror comics (where let’s face it things got weird), all the way up to the modern horror being published today. All of it told with wonderful enthusiasm by the host.

And it’s that last bit that really makes the show shine for me. As far as the topic is concerned I’m onboard. I’m a sucker for comics in general and horror comics in particular so the fact that I would listen to the first few episodes was a given. But the real question was: is the show compelling enough to come back again and again? The answer is a resounding yes. And that comes down to the host.

Herman’s easy, laid back delivery and obvious love of the genre makes the show compelling and endlessly entertaining. Anyone can do a show on a particular topic, but to make that topic come alive and infuse it with the same love you have for that topic is not an easy task. Herman does that with aplomb and you get a real sense of the excitement and joy these macabre tales bring him. And it makes it really fun to listen to.

Add to the fact that the topics are well researched, described perfectly, and given spot-on commentary along with a smattering of personal anecdotes to spice things up makes The Longbox of Darkness not only well worth your time but an essential podcast to add to your subscriptions.

Horrifically Awesome!!

Just listened to my first episode of this podcast and really enjoyed it. The host presents a comic of the horror genre and gives a nice review and synopsis. Then we get a wonderful segment of feedback read by intern Erin (she needs a spin-off! She's great!) The history of horror in comics is covered and finally recommendations. Great show!!

The Longbox of awesome

Herman does a great job spotlighting horror comics from all different publishers. I especially enjoyed his episodes about Marvel comics and also Creepshow!
