Original version of Marceline’s “Fry Song”, by Rebecca Sugar.
"My cursed blood is your cursed blood
So come on back and be my bud
I can count your visits on my fingertips
So come back and give me presents from your business trips…”

After a few months of development, longbox is finally ready to start letting people in. We’re really excited to start letting people play around with the site, getting feedback, and making improvements as we go.
That’s right, this is a “beta”.
Since we still have some work to do, things might break or act a little weird. They shouldn’t, but they might. If they do, you are welcome to hit us up via Facebook/Twitter/email and let us know so we can get it fixed.
In the meantime, we’re going to be building out more features that are currently 90% done. User lists, reviews, the collection browser, etc. We have a ways to go, still.
So what can you do with longbox right now?
- Activity Feed
When you follow people on longbox, all of their activity shows up here in the Activity Feed. The Activity Feed is going to be more or less the “home” of longbox and allows you to interact with stay up to date on what your connections are picking up, reading, loving (or not loving), and talking about.
- Build Your Pull List
Your pull list is basically your thumbprint as a reader and collector. It tells people what you’re reading. No sharing your pull list is as simple as sharing a link.
- Join Community Conversations
We’ve built a custom forum system that will grow and evolve to tightly integrate with the rest of the site, including aggregating threads around particular issues, volumes, or titles, with better tools to talk about comics.
- Browse Through Our Comic Data
We have a ton of work to do here still, but the comic book data for the last few weeks is available so you can get a sense of what we’re trying to go.
Check out this great new service to connect with other comic fans, share what you’re reading, find a new series, and more!
