Gudell S. ,

Thank you

A local podcast that highlights everything in pop culture and brings comic fans to the forefront. I can’t thank them enough for what they give to the universe, growing up I didn’t know much about comics outside of movies due to no exposure to them about 3 years ago I got introduced to this podcast and they’ve been a stepping stone in my life. Shortbox nation stand up!

Shortbox Rocks!

These boys and girls know some comics. They bring a close friend vibe that most pop culture comic related casts can’t touch. The banter and jokes make me laugh every time. I love the segments and their artist spotlights as well as the special television show/movie episodes. They have constantly put me on to some great books. In a sea of comics it’s nice to have people with great recommendations. If you enjoy comics talk that’s not taken super serious, but is legit then this is your cast. Make mine a Shortbox!

AMERICA’S #1 Comicbook Podcast!

I used to read comic books regularly until about high school and didn’t become interested again until the Marvel Movies launched. However, as good as they were, it wasn’t enough to fully get my butt in gear. The Shortbox Podcast has single handedly changed that! The whole crew is extremely witty, insightful, and just plain fun to listen to. Their chemistry is unmatched and their connection to comic scene and their local community is top tier. Just give them a listen! Promise within one episode you too, will also #makemineshortbox 🙂 — “Keep it Geeky!”
