SS #045 - 3 Years Down

Shortbox Showcase #45 - Our Third Anniversary

Three years ago today (almost), our very first Shortbox Showcase episode debuted. Yes, the other shows in the network had gone live the week before, but since this has become our flagship show, we consider 7/30/13 as our official network starting date.

After covering some feedback, and talking about how awesome our listeners are and all that, we talk about what we have planned for our next year of podcasting.

And then we continue an ANNUAL tradition, by talking about an comic book Annual ... get it? We talk about a story featuring J'onn J'onzz, a wannabe George Washington, and some ghosts.

And then, lots and lots of feedback about organizing our comic book collections.


Martian Manhunter Annual #1, 1998. "Hearts Afire," by Ty Templeton, with art by Ariel Olivetti.
