The Longbox Crusade Origins

Hello everyone,

My name is Pat. 

A while back my wife said to me, "Why do you keep buying more comics? I bet you have not even read all the comics you have already?". Well she was right (keep that between us)

So I took her up on the challenge to read them all. I decided to read my collection of comic books in chronological order by the issues cover/publish dates. I wanted to relive their adventures and bring back memories I had of my childhood in the late 70's, 80's, 90's and beyond. My collection has been stashed away in over 20 plus longboxes in the basement. (I will leave it up to your imagination as to why I can not have them out on display upstairs.)

I began to read them and thought, "I can not keep this fun to myself". So why not share the fun and memories I was having with other. And so this podcast was created for both you and me to enjoy. Not sure who will listen, but that is OK I know I would have at least one fan. Me!

The podcast will be of me recapping the issues in my collection in a fun and friendly way.

I hope you will come along with me on this crusade to read them all!

Stay tuned! The journey is about to begin soon. (You may want to get a pair of comfy headphones to listen with.)
