A little over four years ago I started Views From The Longbox with little more than a basic idea of what I wanted to do with the show and some audio editing software. 48 months later I have put out well over a hundred episodes plus the specials and whatnot and the show is still going somewhat strong proving that I can stick to something if I really want to. To celebrate the show’s birthday this year I thought it would be fun to have the listeners submit a bunch of questions and then answer those questions with my semi-regular co-host The Irredeemable Shag. The result? About two and a half hours of great conversation that covers comic book movies, animation and we even spend a good chunk talking about the recent announcement that DC is relaunching most of their line. The amusing thing about that part of the conversation is that Shag and I recorded this about three days after the announcement and in that time several other podcasts where I talked about the relaunch/reboot including The Geoff Johns Podcast and the Comics Monthly Monday end of Two True Freaks (which I am now a third chair on) have already come out. So some of what you hear on this episode was based solely on the announcement and the first few solicits DC released at the time of recording. It was interesting hearing my thoughts then compared to my thoughts now. They haven’t really changed but there are a few worries that I currently have that I didn’t have then.
