Podcast Episode 17: Best of 2011!

The LBR podcast is back for the new year, but this episode we are taking a look at 2011 by discussing what we see are the Best of comics and related items in 11 categories. What did we choose, for example,  for Best Artist, Cover, and Ongoing? Have a listen and discover for yourself!

If you’d like (and I’d love it if you did), let me know what you would have chosen for those categories and I’d be glad to read them on the “air”. Disagree with our picks? Let me know (I’ll read those, too)!

Please leave comments on the blog; you can also send email to, or if you’re on Twitter, message @longboxreview. I would love to hear from you. Finally, please rate the podcast on iTunes.
