Podcast Episode 100

LBR logo 300

Hey everybody! I’m about to record the Longbox Review comic book podcast’s 100th episode! Before that, however, I want to invite you to submit suggestions for topics, or your comments on your favorite episode or moment from the show, or any questions that you may have for me that I can answer on “air”.

If you prefer, here are some questions that you can answer for me (thanks to listener Sean for these suggestions): How did you get into comics and why? What are some of your favorite comics and why? Do you have any experiences with comic book creators that you’d like to share? Finally, what do comics mean to you?

If you would like to participate in this way, AND I CHALLENGE ALL OF MY LISTENERS TO DO SO, please leave a comment below this post, email me at longboxreview@gmail.com, tweet at me @longboxreview, or leave a comment on the Facebook page. If you’re feeling particularly bold, you can always leave me voicemail at 208-953-1841. These and the other contact options can be found by clicking the Contact/Feedback tab at the top of the page.

I look forward to your responses. Thanks for supporting the show for 100 episodes!

P.S. — If you don’t mind, please consider leaving a review and/or a five-star rating on iTunes!

Or do you have a favorite episode or moment that you wanted to comment on?

2015 in Review

2015 has come and gone, and as it is customary to reflect upon the past year, I present here some stats that I find interesting about my little endeavor that is Longbox Review.

First (as always), the comics! I purchased 635 new issues/trades throughout the year (which is 338 fewer issues compared to 2014). That averaged out to nearly 53 issues per month and 12 per week. There were three weeks where I got 17 issues (in 2014, there was one week when I purchased 34 issues). Limited series clocked in at 64 titles for the year (wow!), and I bought 31 new trade collections/OGNs. I also bought 10 one-shot issues. The rest are the ongoing series, where I bought issues from 80 different titles for the year. I don’t have exact numbers (again, something I’ll need to work on for 2016), but I bought around 200 back issues and trades throughout the year.

Next, the podcast! In 2015, I released 20 episodes total, including several The Gutters episodes. That’s not nearly the amount I want to release in a year (at least 24 episodes is my goal, plus however many The Gutters episodes that I want to do). Did someone say new year’s resolution? ;) Regardless, there were 8481 downloads among the 109+ episodes (there a few files that are in the feed that I don’t count as proper episodes). March was the busiest month with 1130 downloads, and June 30 saw the most downloads in a day. The most downloaded episode of the year was Episode 80: Favorites of 2014, Part 1, followed very closely by Episode 79: Valentine’s Special (by only three fewer downloads!). That kind of surprised me, by the way. Finally, I love that people in 50+ countries have listened to show.

As far as the videos, I had released only nine videos, but had 551 overall views throughout the year, with the 2014 review video getting the most views and a video I made in 2013 getting the number two spot. Huh.

And this is what WordPress had to tell me about the blog:

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,700 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

As always, thank you for listening, watching, reading, and interacting. Have a great 2016!

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for all the support this past year!
