  1. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Seven

    on Sep 17, 2018 8:15:00 pm - 7 views | 0 comments
    I was going to talk about all the grand adventures I had while contending with mega-storm, Flo this past week…but I know you didn’t come for that. It’s a comic book blog. Real life is kind of secondary, right? We just got a bunch of rain and some trees fallen over, anyway. Nothing like what the towns further east experienced. Over here, the storm was...

Romita/Romita Jr. Lithograph cel $10. Spider-man/Green goblin seat belt buckle, belt $10. Worry about the frame later. No wall space left, damn. Ok, maybe I...

  4. Longbox Junk - America Part 2 (Part 1)

    on Sep 13, 2018 12:30:00 am - 81 views | 0 comments
    I've gotta be honest right here at the top. . .this comic series ALMOST broke me. It's the first time that I REALLY felt like abandoning a Longbox Junk series review only halfway done. It's THAT bad. I declared back in December of 2016 that the awful X-Files/ 30 Days of Night crossover mini was the low bar for Longbox Junk until further notice. It's taken a...

  5. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Six

    on Sep 10, 2018 10:15:00 pm - 59 views | 0 comments
    A Brief History of the Legion of Superheroes reading: It’s a thousand years in the future. There are plenty of spaceships, exotic alien worlds and everyone seems to have some type of super-power. From the altruistic leadership of the United Planets, there is general peace and harmony around the galaxy. Tensions mostly only occur when the warlike Khunds or...

  6. Weekend Purchases

    on Sep 9, 2018 2:30:00 pm - 79 views | 0 comments
    My wife asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday yesterday, and there was really nothing else that i wanted to do than visit the local comic shop. Besides, there was a new Spawn issue released that I really wanted to get. I would have been happy with a single issue Spawn for $3, but she let me go a little crazier and get a few that I wanted. I don't buy as...

  7. Retro Reviews - Kamandi: Last Boy On Earth #1

    on Sep 7, 2018 12:05:00 am - 110 views | 2 comments
    Welcome to another Retro Review edition of Longbox Junk. . .where I take a closer look at an older and more "valuable" comic in my collection instead of my usual "Still worth cover price after 15 years" fare. On my last "retro review" edition, (Captain America #193) I found Jack Kirby's writing. . .lacking. So I asked around the internet a bit, looking for...

  8. Cover Love

    on Sep 5, 2018 10:20:00 pm - 86 views | 3 comments
    They say you can't judge a book by it's cover...but in the comic collecting world, a cover may be the sole reason for making a purchase. There have been plenty of purchases made, because I was moved in some way by the cover. Covers are works of art. Some covers may impact the majority of fans or collectors, and some may just influence a small segment. What...

  9. Thanks for all the messages, BUT. . .

    on Sep 5, 2018 8:20:00 am - 113 views | 0 comments
    So I've gotten a good handful of interesting messages since I posted the first part of my America review a few days ago. . . First, thanks for reading! BUT. . . I think I might need to clarify a few things. Some of you think I might be just a LITTLE racist and anti-gay based on my America review and a Terminator review I did a while back (Enemy of My Enemy)....

  10. Legion of Superheroes:Week Thirty-Five

    “It isn’t fair. After all we’ve gone through. After all we’ve triumphed over. It just isn’t fair…but then, life isn’t fair, is it? Well, no. In fact, life is fair, really. It sets out some clearly defined rules and challenges humankind to fashion its heaven within those rules. And in those rare moments when we realize heaven...
