  1. Retro Reviews - The Shadow #1

    on Oct 3, 2018 12:15:00 am - 329 views | 1 comments
    Welcome to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk, where I take a closer look at some of the more "valuable" single issues in my collection instead of my usual discount box fare. This time out, I take a trip back to 1973 and take a look at what many comic fans consider to be the best version of one of my favorite characters. . .the dark avenger known as...

    Forty-some years ago: I read my first Legion of Super-Heroes comic. I’m still not sure which issue it was, but I remember it leaving an immediate impression. 37 years ago: the comic collection began. Since that time, I have accumulated a full run of Legion issues (minus some Annuals and Specials) from #276 of the first series, up to Zero Hour. I have been...

  4. Real autographs or not?

    on Sep 30, 2018 6:05:00 pm - 298 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....

  5. Longbox Junk - Jack of Hearts

    on Sep 28, 2018 2:35:00 am - 387 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...

  6. 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...

  7. Longbox Junk - Insurrection v3.6

    on Sep 21, 2018 12:10:00 am - 382 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...

  8. Legion of Superheroes: Week Thirty-Seven

    on Sep 17, 2018 8:15:00 pm - 373 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...

  9. 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...

  10. Longbox Junk - America Part 2

    on Sep 13, 2018 12:30:00 am - 447 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...
