Longbox Junk - Space: Above and Beyond - The Gauntlet

on Apr 11, 2017 2:10:00 am - 114 views | 0 comments
Space: Above and Beyond was a short-lived (one season) Fox T.V. show in the 90's that focused on a squadron of U.S. Marine Corps space fighter pilots during a war with insect-like alien invaders known as "Chigs". It was pretty gritty and realistic and still holds up fairly well if you can ignore the 90's-Tastic CGI effects. As a former Marine myself, I was a big fan...

Longbox Junk - Solomon Kane: Red Shadows

on Apr 10, 2017 2:25:00 am - 311 views | 0 comments
To me, Solomon Kane is one of the most unique characters out there. . .not nearly as well known as other R.E. Howard creations like Red Sonja, King Kull, or Conan. . .but still a great character. For those who are not familiar, Kane is basically a combination of The Punisher and Blade The Vampire Hunter, created long before either of those characters and set in the...

Milestone!

Cataloged over a thousand comics from my collection! And I'm not even half way done! That's about 4 long boxes and I have 4 more to go and that's not accounting for maybe the 10 or more I have in storage. I only wish they were worth as much as comic book realm says they are. I'd be lucky to get a fraction for them. I think the easy part will be entering them on...

Welcome back to the series that's like that one guy at work who just does what he has to do and nothing else. He knows he's never going to get a great review from management, but he doesn't care as long as he just gets paid. THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD (DC) ISSUE 191 In a strange turn of events, Batman and Joker team up to find the truth after Penguin is...

Longbox Junk - The Brave and The Bold part 1: Issues 176, 184, 185, and 186

Welcome back to the 80's! Smell that cheap paper, boy! SMELL IT! That's right. We didn't need fancy paper in my day. And stories that made sense? Didn't need those either. You kids don't even know how good you got it now. I had to buy MY comics from the grocery store. One story in every issue. None of that continuity crap you kids talk about. Didn't need...

Longbox Junk - The Crow: City of Angels

on Apr 4, 2017 2:50:00 am - 98 views | 0 comments
City of Angels was the sequel to The Crow. . .and in my humble opinion, the only decent sequel. I like the movie quite a bit, which probably puts me at odds with a lot of Crow fans who (according to reviews I've read) hated it for being even darker and more relentlessly depressing than the original, with not even the small bit of light and hope represented by young...

I've got a couple of GREAT ones this time out, folks! THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (Dark Horse) ISSUE 1 Where to start? I found this first issue to be excellent in every way! The story is a fast-paced direct sequel to John Carpenter's 1982 horror masterpiece "The Thing" and maintains the movie's tense atmosphere, but not so much as in a "We're all...

Grey Cell Green

I am an audience member, here. I watch and react to the words in the bubbles and squares. My eyes glow from the reflected light off of the page. My imagination interprets the language of symbol and art: and creates dreamlike imagery in my mind to compensate for the static representations from gutter to gutter. I give appropriate responses to the material...

This is New

I've not used this blog function before so this is a test. I do have my own blog (version 3 or 4, I forget) at my own site that is for my own pleasure. I don't talk comic books there but I just may start. I've been a member of Comic BookRealm for 2 1/2 years now, a lifetime member. This site was just what I needed when I decided to start cataloging and selling...

I just noticed that 3 out of the 4 "Two Shots" I have at hand are from Dark Horse Comics. I wonder if the two issue story was one of their "things". I never really noticed it before. ANYWAY. . . Two-shots! More than a one-shot, less than a mini. Let's do this! PREDATOR VS. MAGNUS, ROBOT FIGHTER (Dark Horse/Valiant) ISSUE 1: SPORT There's nothing...
