Longbox Graveyard Podcast: “A Tale of Two Pitches”

The Ninth Longbox Graveyard Podcast Is Here!

Several weeks back, We Talk Comics head honcho (and personal podcasting mentor) Mo Kristiansen asked if I had any celebrity stories I could share on my Longbox Graveyard Podcast. I couldn’t think of any off the top of my head, but then weeks later mentioned that I’d once had a pitch session with Steven Spielberg. Mo gave me the dead eye and said that was the kind of thing he was asking about …

The Adventures of Tin Tin

This month on the Longbox Graveyard Podcast I relate a “Tale of Two Pitches” — about how I found myself having to pitch a Tin Tin video game idea to Steven Spielberg with basically no time to prepare, and also how future Marvel Comics boss Bill Jemas lit me up when I went into a pitch session with him without really knowing what I was doing. True Hollywood war stories — with a comic book twist — and they’re all free for the downloading on the Longbox Graveyard Podcast!

Longbox Graveyard Podcast: “The Dark Knight Rises”

The Eighth Longbox Graveyard Podcast Is Here!

It’s a new year, a new month, and an all-new Longbox Graveyard Podcast!

This month I review The Dark Knight Rises … except not really. This isn’t a movie review so much as it’s a look at why certain movies can come to mean so much to us. It could as easily be about Avengers or Phantom Menace or The Hobbit — all these pictures have their hooks in us!

The Dark Knight Rises

For what it is worth, I was pretty disappointed by Dark Knight Rises, but what really puzzled me was why that disappointment had such an outsized impact on me. I try to get to the bottom of it in this podcast.

The Fourth Longbox Graveyard Podcast Has Arrived!

The Fourth Longbox Graveyard Podcast Has Arrived!

The fourth monthly installment of the Longbox Graveyard Podcast is now available for your downloading and listening pleasure.

This month marks a departure from format as I look at Frank Miller’s controversial and devisive Holy Terror through the eyes of a young man who has grown up in a post-9/11 world — my son, Miles.

It’s a bit longer and maybe less locked down that previous episodes of the podcast but I hope you will find it worth your while. Be sure to let me know what you think!
