  1. Real autographs or not?

    on Sep 30, 2018 6:05:00 pm - 75 views | 4 comments
    Hello there, I was hoping I could get some opinions on whether or not you think these are authentic autographs by Rob Liefeld and Todd McFarlane. I got this book at a win at an auction and posted about it in the check it out forum earlier. I don't have a scanner, but have taken 2 close ups of the autographs. Hopefully I can post both photos in this one post....

  2. Longbox Junk - Jack of Hearts

    on Sep 28, 2018 2:35:00 am - 122 views | 2 comments
    This 4 issue mini is another nice find that came as a result of one of my local comic shops' abandoning back issue sales and pretty much pricing every back issue in stock that sells for less than $20 online at ONE LOUSY BUCK! As you can imagine, this has been a most beautiful bounty for a lover of Longbox Junk such as myself. I now have a HUGE pile of unread...

  3. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Eight

    What do you do when your life suddenly goes to hell…? Why, you just go read a big old stack of comics. That’s what. But, what happens when your life is totally flipping upside-down and the comics you are reading just start to suck? Well… stay tuned about that. I haven’t figured it out yet. … THIS AREA IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION...

  4. Longbox Junk - Insurrection v3.6

    on Sep 21, 2018 12:10:00 am - 118 views | 4 comments
    One of my local comic shops is abandoning back issues in order to turn their back room into more gaming space. A sign of the times for comic shops, I guess. The result of this is that they have greatly increased the number of dollar boxes for me to hunt through. . .from 4 to 20! A nice little bonanza for a Longbox Junk lover such as myself. This mini is one of...

  5. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Seven

    on Sep 17, 2018 8:15:00 pm - 126 views | 2 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...

  6. Days in the life of a comic book junkie

    (attempting to type in internal monologue) (is that even a thing???) Thursday night 10pm, check bank account. SWEEEEEET! Monthly bonus hit and it is fat! Hmmmm...where do I go from here? 1. 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...

  7. Longbox Junk - America Part 2

    on Sep 13, 2018 12:30:00 am - 167 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...

  8. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Six

    on Sep 10, 2018 10:15:00 pm - 89 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...

  9. Weekend Purchases

    on Sep 9, 2018 2:30:00 pm - 123 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...

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

    on Sep 7, 2018 12:05:00 am - 152 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...
