    A brief history of the Teen Titans. Back in the 1950’s, any hero worth his salt needed to have a sidekick. Batman had his Robin, Wonder Woman picked up Wonder Girl and the Flash-family gained another speedster named Kid Flash. Even Aquaman and Green Arrow sported their own teen-aged proteges. Not to be out-done, Superman gathered a menagerie of...

  2. Longbox Junk - Iceman Part 1: Issues 1 - 5

    on Dec 7, 2018 2:05:00 am - 109 views | 1 comments
    In keeping with my current efforts to more familiarize myself with the current state of Mainstream Marvel Superhero Comics, I've enlisted my comic collectin' daughter to help me out a bit. With a few exceptions (such as Captain America, Punisher, and Moon Knight), I'm just not really interested in much that Marvel has been putting out for quite a while now, as far...

    So, it’s December already. The days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder. ‘Tiss the season to bust out the ugly-sweaters, prepare some nice hot chocolate, and hustle over to your favorite comic shop to purchase a gift for your old pal, Mekdinosaur. Check out my current “want list” on my home page if you need a hint. Wink. Might as...

  4. Retro Review - Fantastic Four #50

    on Dec 1, 2018 12:20:00 am - 237 views | 1 comments
    Welcome to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk, where I take a look at some of the more "Collectable" or "Valuable" comics I own instead of my usual dollar box fare. This time out (in keeping with my current focus on Mainstream Marvel comics) we're taking a trip back to 1966 for a look at Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby's Fantastic Four #50. I...

  5. More on grading comics

    on Nov 30, 2018 6:05:00 am - 259 views | 2 comments
    Ok, this is a little different, I have noticed a trend in grading that just bothers me and it has to do with signed comics. Now any mark on a new comic that is made after publication is generally considered a defect. Yet I see graded comics all the time that have an accurate grade until you get to that big blob of ink on it that is called a signature. FOr some...

  6. Longbox Junk - Marvel Age: Spider-Man Team-Up

    on Nov 29, 2018 12:30:00 am - 256 views | 1 comments
    Fair Warning: This is an "All Ages" series. Just bear with me. . . I know that I'm writing toward an adult audience, but sometimes even adults just want to have a little fun in their comics, right? I know I do from time to time. So why not check out what's going on in some of those comics you might otherwise pass over as kiddy fare? Allow me to explain. . ....

    In a perfect world, everything would be cool. Everyone would have absolute affirmation and contentment about everything in their lives, all the time. Sounds great. But whose concept of perfection is ideal? Yours or mine? Who gets to choose? In a perfect world, I’m sure morality wouldn’t be a factor. Neither would those pesky concepts like scruples or...

  8. Longbox Junk - X-Men: Phoenix - Endsong

    on Nov 23, 2018 1:35:00 am - 274 views | 2 comments
    Let's get this out in the open right from the start. . . I don't like the X-Men. I never have. It's not that I HATE the X-Men, it's just that I'm not a big fan of "mainstream" costumed superhero comics (with a few exceptions like Captain America, Moon Knight and Batman), and I'm even less of a fan of "team" books. So where I'm a fan of Batman and...

    YOU think therefore I AM… Hello! Welcome to another mek-tacular installment of dinosauric delights. Since it’s Thanksgiving weekend in the United States (sooorry, Canada), I figure it would be a good time to mention all I have been thankful for over the past year. I don’t know about anyone else, but it’s been another roller-coaster for...
