    A Brief History of the Legion of Superheroes reading: It’s a thousand years in the future. There are plenty of spaceships, exotic alien worlds and everyone seems to have some type of super-power. From the altruistic leadership of the United Planets, there is general peace and harmony around the galaxy. Tensions mostly only occur when the warlike Khunds or...

  2. Weekend Purchases

    on Sep 9, 2018 2:30:00 pm - 353 views | 0 comments
    My wife asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday yesterday, and there was really nothing else that i wanted to do than visit the local comic shop. Besides, there was a new Spawn issue released that I really wanted to get. I would have been happy with a single issue Spawn for $3, but she let me go a little crazier and get a few that I wanted. I don't buy as...

  3. Retro Reviews - Kamandi: Last Boy On Earth #1

    on Sep 7, 2018 12:05:00 am - 367 views | 2 comments
    Welcome to another Retro Review edition of Longbox Junk. . .where I take a closer look at an older and more "valuable" comic in my collection instead of my usual "Still worth cover price after 15 years" fare. On my last "retro review" edition, (Captain America #193) I found Jack Kirby's writing. . .lacking. So I asked around the internet a bit, looking for...

  4. Cover Love

    on Sep 5, 2018 10:20:00 pm - 266 views | 3 comments
    They say you can't judge a book by it's cover...but in the comic collecting world, a cover may be the sole reason for making a purchase. There have been plenty of purchases made, because I was moved in some way by the cover. Covers are works of art. Some covers may impact the majority of fans or collectors, and some may just influence a small segment. What...

  5. Thanks for all the messages, BUT. . .

    on Sep 5, 2018 8:20:00 am - 272 views | 0 comments
    So I've gotten a good handful of interesting messages since I posted the first part of my America review a few days ago. . . First, thanks for reading! BUT. . . I think I might need to clarify a few things. Some of you think I might be just a LITTLE racist and anti-gay based on my America review and a Terminator review I did a while back (Enemy of My Enemy)....

    “It isn’t fair. After all we’ve gone through. After all we’ve triumphed over. It just isn’t fair…but then, life isn’t fair, is it? Well, no. In fact, life is fair, really. It sets out some clearly defined rules and challenges humankind to fashion its heaven within those rules. And in those rare moments when we realize heaven...

  7. 60 Cent Memories

    on Sep 1, 2018 10:10:00 pm - 203 views | 2 comments
    The 80's were a fun time. Especially when comic books were only 60 cents a piece! As an 11 year old boy, I never passed up a chance to go grocery shopping with my mother. I always made a B-line for the spinner racks, and she knew where to find me, whenever she was finished. One day she was going to a different supermarket that we had never been to before. Food...

  8. Longbox Junk - America Part 1

    on Sep 1, 2018 5:15:00 am - 299 views | 0 comments
    Let's get this out of the way right off the top. . .I am NOT the target audience for this comic series. I am a 50 year old married straight male surrounded by the kind of opulent lower middle class white privilege that only being the night manager of a mid-range priced hotel can provide. This comic series is LASER-FOCUSED at what I'm pretty sure is an...

  10. Diggin' on McFarlane

    on Aug 30, 2018 12:45:00 pm - 147 views | 0 comments
    I had a bunch of comics from earlier years but hadn't been in to collecting at the start of the 90's. I was going to college and began working at a restaurant. Coincidentally, a new comic book shop opened in a vacant space right next to us. When I had breaks from work, I began wandering over and checking out their stash, as well as the new releases. Soon enough,...
