Adam Russell and Nick Borelli started this podcast in July 2012 as an excuse to talk about our favorite thing: Geek Culture! Admittedly comic book heavy in discussion (hey, we’re big fanboys), the podcast explores various areas of what geeks love. Sometimes a two person discussion and other times with guests, this is the crown jewel of the Short Box empire.

We discuss the comics coming to stores in June 2013, what we think about many Marvel and DC titles, and Marvel Now vs. The New 52.


We review the Stan Lee, Joe Quesada, and Kevin Smith interview DVD: Marvel Then & Now.


In one of the boldest moves in Marvel Comics history…Doctor Octopus is the new Spider-Man! This Marvel Now change is easily one of the biggest things to happen to Spider-Man in his history. Adam and Nick discuss the first 5 issues of Superior Spider-Man and Avenging Spider-Man and what they think of the whole idea of Doc Ock as Spidey. Is he REALLY the Superior Spider-Man?


We discuss Damian Wayne, Batman’s son and most recent Robin. We talk about Damian’s place in the Batman mythos and a quick history of the Robins.

podcast review dave gibbons

We continue our discussion on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s Watchmen.

Watchmen is often called the best comic book of all-time. We agree. Adam and Nick talk about why exactly this book is just so good. We get into the history, controversial, and central themes.
