Retro Reviews - Tor #1

TOR #1 I knew nothing about the character of Tor when I stumbled across this comic at an antique store (Junk store would be more accurate) a while back. All I knew is that it had a great Joe Kubert cover, was in surprisingly good condition for being unbagged and in a stack of battered Richie Rich and Archie comics, and was only going to...

Every now and then I fall apart… Are you tired of all the Legion of Superhero comic reviews yet? Yah, me too. I think that I’m about done reading any more silly exploits of those far-fetched, faux-future has-beens. Nobody cares if Timberwolf gets his love-life in order or if we’ll ever see Queen Projectra again. None of...

This week's haul: finding #1s in new places!

Hey all! Been busy lately, but I figured now would be a good time to check in (before work sucks me back in!!!). This week, my son had a Pinewood Derby race at the local mall for Cub Scouts. The local mall has been dying for years, much like every mall in the US over the last decade. One thing our local mall has done to prevent going out of business is...

Longbox Junk - Avengers: Millennium

on Mar 8, 2018 2:10:00 am - 213 views | 0 comments
I'm not a big fan of The Avengers for the same reason I'm not a big fan of The Justice League. I like individual characters on both teams, but it just seems like a failing proposition to keep coming up with stories that can present a challenge to a combined team of the mightiest heroes on Earth. It all just sort of reeks of fan service, and I prefer lower-key super...

Bring on the bad guys “Technology develops, worlds themselves evolve, yet psyches remain much the same. As do passions. Families, friends, lovers, and lunatics…and let not be forgotten, villains…all can be tempted by the sweet taste of vengeance.” -opening monologue to Legion of Superheroes Volume 2, #1....

Legion of Superheroes: week eight

About twenty-five years ago, DC Comics did (in my mind, at least) the unthinkable: they killed Superman. There was a lot of mainstream media commentary over the deal. At the local comic shop, people lined up around the block just to get their black polybagged copy of Superman #75. It was advertised as an end of an era. The king of superheroes is dead!...

Anyone who's been reading this blog for a while knows I have a love for the one shot. Those tasty little bites of comic book tapas where the creative team has a single issue to tell a whole story. You never know what you're going to get with a one shot. . .sometimes they hit it out of the park, other times it's a foul ball. Wait. . .how did I go from food...

Retro Reviews - The Occult Files of Doctor Spektor #1

on Feb 20, 2018 1:25:00 am - 218 views | 0 comments
After the Golden Age of horror comics (the 1950's) came to a screeching halt (thanks to the Comics Code Authority), pretty much any comic book horror material was to be found in titles slipping through a CCA loophole in the form of larger-sized black and white "magazines". But in the 1970's, publishers began to push against the CCA and there was a major...

Legion of Superheroes: Week Seven

Crossing over When reviewing long stretches of old comics continuity, one of the difficult parts is figuring out the order in which to read each issue. If it’s Marvel or DC Comics, you have decades-long continuity, multiple realities and a half-dozen reboots to contend with. Before the 1980’s, though, it was quite easy to get...
