Longbox Junk - Adventures In The Rifle Brigade: Operation Bollock

on Jan 4, 2017 1:40:00 am - 120 views | 0 comments
Short Version: This is a story about Hitler's missing left testicle. You have been warned. ADVENTURES IN THE RIFLE BRIGADE: OPERATION BOLLOCK ISSUE 1 I don't even know where to start. I have no recollection of ever buying or reading these comics before. All I knew going in was that it was a war comic and the same team from "Just a Pilgrim". This has...

Longbox Junk - Marvel Noir: Iron Man

Short Version: This is how First Wave should have been. MARVEL NOIR: IRON MAN ISSUE 1 I'm not sure if Marvel had the same idea of starting a new pulp/noir side universe as DC did with "First Wave" with "Marvel Noir" or not, but it doesn't look like any actual series came out of it. Instead it looks to be a set of minis, with a couple of them getting...

Longbox Junk - The Huntress

on Jan 3, 2017 1:40:00 am - 118 views | 0 comments
Gritty teeth! Belts and pouches! Internal narration! Gigantic weapons! It must be the 90's! THE HUNTRESS ISSUE 1 I think this mini was part of DC's effort to "grim and gritty" things up a bit during the 90's. This version of The Huntress is less "Birds of Prey" superhero and more "Punisher" violent antihero. I'm not sure where it fits into DC continuity,...

Longbox Junk - Oracle: The Cure

Welcome to a "Battle For The Cowl" tie in that's ACTUALLY a "Final Crisis" epilogue. Wait. . .What? ISSUE 1 Holy-Rack-oly! How about that cover? Now that the elephant (s) in the room have been addressed. . . I really liked Oracle as a character. She was probably one of the more unusual "superheroes" out there. I won't get into it, but I feel that DC...

Armageddon Days Are Here (Again)

on Dec 31, 2016 8:45:00 pm - 189 views | 1 comments
So, this is the end . The end of peace, love and understanding. A time when truth and justice are supplanted by ignorance, hatred and destruction. There is a dark foreboding in the air. People’s hopes that once beaconed toward social progress are now shrinking in the shadow of blind intolerance. War and strife are encouraged now. It has become clear...

Longbox Junk - Fantastic Four: First Family

IT'S REVIEWIN' TIME! ISSUE 1 Let me get this out right up front. I'm not a huge fan of superheroes. That's not to say I don't like superheroes at all. . .it's just that I prefer the more "street level" or realistic (as realistic as comics can be anyway) heroes. About the only "Traditional" superheroes I follow on a regular basis are Batman and Captain America....

Longbox junk: Planet Of The Apes part 2 Issues 9-16

Shaved Oriental Pirate Gorillas. . .oh my! ISSUE 9 Okay. . .I get it now. I guess I should have before, but new arc doesn't really mean new story in this age of TPB collections of series. . .it just means a cliffhanger to encourage buying the next TPB for those not reading the series issue by issue. So my lower rating of last issue for not resolving the end of...

Longbox Junk: Planet Of The Apes part 1 Issues 1-8

THEY BLEW IT UP! THEY BLEW THE ENDING UP! But the rest was great. . . ISSUE 1 I love Planet of The Apes. I have a confession to make that may or may not earn me any nerd points. . .you know that Tim Burton remake that everyone despises? I even love THAT movie! I think everyone hates it because they were expecting a remake and instead got a re-imagining. But...

BAT MAN/DOC SAVAGE SPECIAL So what we have here is the one shot introduction to what was supposed to have been a new DC pulp-influenced universe. From what I understand,...

Longbox Junk: Star Wars Princess Leia

Can it really be called Longbox Junk if there's a $250 variant cover? I only have $4 covers, so in my case. . .yes. ISSUE 1 After the events of the first Star Wars movie, the rebels are pulling out of their base and scattering until they can find a new one. Princess Leia is frustrated because she wants to be part of the action instead of being treated...
