  1. First Attempt - Comic Book Dry Cleaning

    on Aug 3, 2019 6:25:00 pm - 515 views | 3 comments
    The other day I found myself watching 'dry' comic book cleaning videos on YouTube and decided to give it a try. The videos showed individuals using various eraser type tools to remove unwanted marks, inks, and other imperfections - I thought to myself how hard could this possibly be? Here is the account of my first cleaning attempts. Step 1: The Supplies Not...

    This is a regular post where I grab a bunch of comics from my reading stack and rave and rant about them. This is also a labor of love for my daughter and I - to not only share a common interest but to also encourage her to read and write - check out Syd's pick below. So here it goes and we welcome any feedback or improvements you may have. Hope you enjoy....

    Welcome back to Longbox Junk, home of comic reviews nobody ever asked for! Once again, my apologies for the longer than usual gap between entries this time of year. As a hotel manager, the summer tourist season takes a pretty severe cut into my comic readin' and reviewin' since I do these at work in my down time. As you can see from the title, this time out...

  4. It Came From the Reading Pile - Reviews #1

    on Jul 25, 2019 1:25:00 pm - 420 views | 0 comments
    Like most of you I have a backlog of comics that need to be read. As I work through my stack I wanted to do snapshot reviews of the books. Most of these reviews will come from new comics, but once in a while I will throw in some older books. Starting out using a carrot scale of 1-5 to measure the overall book - people seem to like ratings. This is also a labor...

  5. When Your LCS Doesn't Want Your Love...or $$$

    on Jul 24, 2019 5:00:00 pm - 452 views | 1 comments
    My first post - hope you enjoy. I live in Florida which is not conducive to public transportation or walking, as a result, we have to drive everywhere. I wanted to set that context, because for the last year I found myself buying 99% of my books from a large online store. I have come to enjoy the online service, the discounts, and customer service -- but all of...

    Welcome back to Longbox Junk, home of comic reviews nobody ever asked for! Once again, my apologies for summertime delays. I've admitted before that I'm not a very big fan of what many think of as traditional comic book superheroes. . .the "capes and tights" crowd, in other words. I like my heroes to be a bit more "grounded", even if they ARE inhabiting a comic...

  7. Retro Review Independence Day Special - Our Army At War #295 (1976)

    Welcome to another Longbox Junk Retro Review! Every now and then, I like to take a step back from my usual Bargain Bin fare and shine a spotlight on some of the older or more "valuable" single issues in my collection. . .this is one of those times. Enjoy! To many "serious" collectors, the comic at hand isn't that old. Likewise it isn't really too...

  8. Hello!

    Hi, I am new to the site and in the process of listing my collection. I'm about to send a kid to college and frankly can use some extra cash - so I begrudgingly decided that maybe it's time to sell some of my collection. Anyways, I'm not sure what to make of it when I see people saying they want a comic but list $0 under willing to pay. I'm not an eBay kind of guy...
