  1. Longbox Junk - Video Game One Shots Special Part 2

    on Feb 14, 2019 1:20:00 am - 1062 views | 2 comments
    Let's do away with the long intro this time out. If you've read Part 1 of my Longbox Junk video game one shot special, then you know what this is about. . .Video game-based one shots. If you haven't read Part 1 yet, I have to ask. . . Why are you reading Part 2 first? You some kind of Commie? Here's Part 1:...

    “There came a time when the old gods died! The brave died with the cunning! The noble perished, locked in battle with unleashed evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!” -opening text of New Gods #1. What better way to ring in the new year, than with a nice long exploration of a brand-new world?...

  3. Retro Review - Cloak and Dagger

    on Feb 5, 2019 1:30:00 am - 1041 views | 2 comments
    Welcome to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk! Once again, I step outside of my usual bargain bin finds to take a closer look at a comic from my collection that might be considered more "valuable" than most of what I own and give the internet a classic comic review that NOBODY ever asked me for. This time out, I think I've really outdone myself on...

  4. Longbox Junk - Video Game One-Shots Special Part 1

    on Jan 31, 2019 2:05:00 am - 1095 views | 4 comments
    Generally speaking, comic book fandom seems to cross over with certain other fandoms pretty easily and often. Video games is one of those crossover points with comic books that is a great example of how two seemingly different things can come together in a great way. . .well, mostly great anyway. Like just about everything else on Earth, there's good AND bad to be...

    Hey there, CBR! Back from doing a favor for a friend by writing a dozen "Retro Reviews" for a new site he's starting that he can throw in to plug holes when he gets behind on new stuff. They'll all eventually end up here from time to time after he uses them first. Anyway. . . Let's get into some Longbox Junk! FAIR WARNING! IF YOU ARE A...

  6. Longbox Junk - All-New Guardians of The Galaxy Part 2

    on Jan 9, 2019 2:10:00 am - 1195 views | 1 comments
    Welcome back to Longbox Junk and the second half of All-New Guardians of The Galaxy! I came into this series with only basic knowledge of the characters gained from the movies and found it to be a pretty decent new reader-friendly gateway into the comic book versions of the Guardians of The Galaxy. . .at first. Unfortunately, the series seemed...

  7. Retro Review - The Ghost Rider #1

    on Jan 3, 2019 12:05:00 am - 1052 views | 2 comments
    Let's start the New Year off right with a Retro Review for the first 2019 Longbox Junk post! If you're new to Longbox Junk (Welcome, and thanks for reading!) "Retro Reviews" are sorta special editions that show up every now and then where I take a look at some of the more "collectible" comics I own instead of my usual dollar box fare. They're still comic book...

  8. Immortal Hulk interest.

    on Jan 1, 2019 7:45:00 pm - 1144 views | 3 comments
    This may be blasphemy here, but I have never really been a Hulk fan. I mean, Banner gets angry, and out comes the Hulk. Pretty predictable stuff there. That is until I picked up an issue of the Immortal Hulk. The regular cover to #10 with the "green door" really caught my eye and I picked it up. I started chatting with the manager of the lcs, of how I really...

    Face Front, True Believers… This is the FINAL edition of the world famous and critically acclaimed Legion of Superheroes blog. People will be talking about this for generations to come, I’m sure. And when I say people, I mean nobody. But whatever. I did it! Three-hundred-sixty-five days of pure, unmitigated, futuristic, super-heroic joy. Notta-dream....

  10. Longbox Junk - All-New Guardians of The Galaxy Part 1

    on Dec 28, 2018 2:30:00 am - 1061 views | 1 comments
    Continuing with my attempt to connect a bit more with modern mainstream Marvel comics (with the assistance of my new Longbox Junk collaborator, my comic lovin' daughter), I've been given this fairly short and recent run of Guardians of The Galaxy to consider. I have to admit that I really have no knowledge of Guardians of The Galaxy outside of the movies,...
