Legion of Superheroes: week ten and eleven

on Mar 19, 2018 8:40:00 pm - 7 views | 0 comments
Have you ever done something completely crazy just because you were bored, but then immediately regretted it? …yah, I’ve never done that. Life is a battle. When everything is going great, you might be more willing to take chances. When it’s not so good, the tendency is to become more conservative. When you are sick, you just...

Longbox Junk - Star Wars: Screaming Citadel

on Mar 15, 2018 2:30:00 am - 82 views | 0 comments
So what we have here is a five issue standalone story that crosses over between the regular Marvel Star Wars and Doctor Aphra ongoing series, with an introductory one-shot. It can be read on its own, but a bit of background knowledge on both Star Wars and Doctor Aphra is needed to fully get into it. . .but really all you need to know are the following basic bits:...

Retro Reviews - Tor #1

on Mar 13, 2018 12:40:00 am - 92 views | 0 comments
TOR #1 I knew nothing about the character of Tor when I stumbled across this comic at an antique store (Junk store would be more accurate) a while back. All I knew is that it had a great Joe Kubert cover, was in surprisingly good condition for being unbagged and in a stack of battered Richie Rich and Archie comics, and was only going to...

Every now and then I fall apart… Are you tired of all the Legion of Superhero comic reviews yet? Yah, me too. I think that I’m about done reading any more silly exploits of those far-fetched, faux-future has-beens. Nobody cares if Timberwolf gets his love-life in order or if we’ll ever see Queen Projectra again. None of...

This week's haul: finding #1s in new places!

on Mar 11, 2018 2:50:00 pm - 107 views | 2 comments
Hey all! Been busy lately, but I figured now would be a good time to check in (before work sucks me back in!!!). This week, my son had a Pinewood Derby race at the local mall for Cub Scouts. The local mall has been dying for years, much like every mall in the US over the last decade. One thing our local mall has done to prevent going out of business is...

Longbox Junk - Avengers: Millennium

on Mar 8, 2018 2:10:00 am - 94 views | 0 comments
I'm not a big fan of The Avengers for the same reason I'm not a big fan of The Justice League. I like individual characters on both teams, but it just seems like a failing proposition to keep coming up with stories that can present a challenge to a combined team of the mightiest heroes on Earth. It all just sort of reeks of fan service, and I prefer lower-key super...

Legion of Superheroes: Week Nine

Bring on the bad guys “Technology develops, worlds themselves evolve, yet psyches remain much the same. As do passions. Families, friends, lovers, and lunatics…and let not be forgotten, villains…all can be tempted by the sweet taste of vengeance.” -opening monologue to Legion of Superheroes Volume 2, #1....

Legion of Superheroes: week eight

on Feb 26, 2018 6:55:00 pm - 101 views | 0 comments
About twenty-five years ago, DC Comics did (in my mind, at least) the unthinkable: they killed Superman. There was a lot of mainstream media commentary over the deal. At the local comic shop, people lined up around the block just to get their black polybagged copy of Superman #75. It was advertised as an end of an era. The king of superheroes is dead!...

Anyone who's been reading this blog for a while knows I have a love for the one shot. Those tasty little bites of comic book tapas where the creative team has a single issue to tell a whole story. You never know what you're going to get with a one shot. . .sometimes they hit it out of the park, other times it's a foul ball. Wait. . .how did I go from food...
