Longbox Junk - Invaders Now!

on Apr 27, 2017 3:10:00 am - 228 views | 0 comments
The Invaders confused me a bit. I thought that they were an actual Golden Age team, but I was a bit surprised to find out that they were actually created in the 60's and retconned into the WWII era. I wonder if this might be one of the earliest examples of this being done. That aside, I'm also not sure why this mini was noted as a crossover between Dynamite and...

Longbox Junk - Zorro Rides Again

on Apr 26, 2017 1:15:00 am - 215 views | 0 comments
This series leads off exactly where the previous Dynamite Zorro series ended. . .but a full year and a half later. Why they took so long to continue the story, I don't know. It reminds me of how a season of a show like Walking Dead or Game of Thrones will end on a cliffhanger and pick up later on exactly where they left off. But unlike those shows, from the looks...

Longbox Junk - Zorro Part 2 Issues 11 - 20

After an extremely strong start, can the back half of this series keep up? Let's find out! ZORRO (Dynamite) ISSUE 11 Although still not up to the quality of the first story arc, three issues into this one and it's growing on me. It's mostly due to Wagner's writing, but the art seems to have improved a bit. I found a shot of Zorro on Tornado particularly...

Longbox Junk - Zorro Part 1 Issues 1 - 10

El Zorro! The Fox. . .masked protector of the innocent and bringer of justice in Mexican California. One of the major influences behind Batman and one of my all-time favorite characters. To me, Zorro is the definition of hero. But how does this classic character fare in Dynamite's hands, rebooted for a more modern audience? Let's find out. . . ZORRO (Dynamite)...

Longbox Junk - Jonah Hex Part 3 Issues 51 -70

The end of this long Jonah Hex trail is in sight. Last batch. . .Let's get it done! JONAH HEX (Vol. 2 DC) ISSUE 51 Not a very good issue at all. A tale of schemes and counterschemes ending up in murder and Hex hired to get to the bottom of it. One of the top 5 worst issues in the run, and the bad art by Giordano doesn't help. I've never been a huge fan...

I actually read, updated and reviewed this seventy issue run of Jonah Hex (Vol 2) back in December, but over the weekend someone asked me about the blog post because they couldn't find it. I realized then that I didn't do one! So let's fix that little oversight now with a HEAPIN' helping of DC's Weird Western bounty hunter! JONAH HEX (VOL. 2 DC) ISSUE 1...

Longbox Junk - Bodycount

Ninja Turtles? Cowabunga, dude! Wait. . .why is Raphael cursing and using an Uzi? BODYCOUNT (Image) ISSUE 1 Okay. . .first off, Image wisely changed the title on this mini so it wouldn't look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle book. The title "Bodycount" is a pretty damn good one word description of the whole thing, as this HAS to be the bloodiest,...

Two shots! Longer than a one shot, shorter than a mini! Do they even make these any more? Let's do this! HELLBOY: THE ISLAND (Dark Horse) ISSUE 1 Hellboy is washed up on a mysterious, haunted island where he meets a Greek Goddess and gets beaten down by a huge monster. But first, he drinks rum and sings sea chanties about pretty young cabin boys with...

Longbox Junk - Space: Above and Beyond - The Gauntlet

on Apr 11, 2017 2:10:00 am - 387 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...
