#718 Back Issue Show: The Cosmic Longbox Presents Blue Beetle!

10/4/2023
May the Bluest Beetle Win! The Blue Beetle movie is a fading memory, so obviously the Cosmic Longbox has forced the Nerds to prepare EIGHT BACK ISSUE COMIC REVIEWS featuring the BLUEST of Beetles (except for Dan Garrett... SCREW that guy). We'll judge these issues with THN's "Buy It," "Skim It," or "Leave It" rating system, which is about as useful as the 80s Justice League.

#713 Back Issue Show: Slack Issues – Joe Reads the Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

8/17/2023
Joe Patrick has never read TMNT and Matt Baum ain't cuttin' him no Slack! Welcome to the "first" episode of a new spin on our back issue review show format! The Cosmic Longbox needs to recharge it's eldritch powers from time to time, so from now on, the CLB will occasionally make way for Slack Issues! Whereas the CLB focuses on comics based on a specific theme, Slack Issues covers shameful gaps in the Nerds' comic reading; legendary stories that they somehow missed. For example, the Internet's Joe Patrick, self-proclaimed comic book "expert," has somehow made it through his nerdy life having NEVER read the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. But that horrendous oversight get's corrected NOW because... IT'S TURTLE POWER REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT! This Episode's Soundtrack: Godzilla March BreakBeat by DJ RX-78 Through the Croaking Swamp by SILVER SWORD Japanese Spider-man Mix by DJ RX-78 All music in this episode is 100% free-use, royalty-free, or used with the express permission of the artist and or label, and all of those other fun words which means we didn’t infringe on any copyrights!
