    on Dec 31, 2018 5:20:00 pm - 1002 views | 2 comments
    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....

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

    on Dec 28, 2018 2:30:00 am - 1071 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,...

    Tis the night before Christmas and on this hallowed eve…I stir through my collection for comics most esteemed. One of my favorite things about this time of year is finding all the “best of” lists people come up with. There seems to be a tally cropping up for everything under the sun these days. Everything from mean machines to obscure cuisine...

    We interrupt "Merry Marvel Mainstream Madness" for a special DC Christmas edition of Longbox Junk because my daughter and I are both extremely light on Marvel Christmas issues. . .as in, we don't have any. Welcome back to another special "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk, where I step away from my usual dollar box fare and take a look at some of...

  5. LEGION OF SUPERHEROES: WEEK FIFTY

    on Dec 17, 2018 6:20:00 pm - 937 views | 0 comments
    In many ways, L.E.G.I.O.N. is the antithetical flip-side of the LoSH. In the L.E.G.I.O.N., there is always just the one leader, they don’t stick to any rules, loyalty is always in question and they make no bones about killing. The group even exists in a totally different time-line from the LoSH, so there’s little chance of any cross-overs or...

    Disclaimer time! IF YOU GRIT YOUR TEETH AT THE THOUGHT OF "SOCIAL JUSTICE" OR "FORCED DIVERSITY" IN COMICS, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. And: IF YOU GRIT YOUR TEETH AT THE THOUGHT OF A STRAIGHT WHITE GUY CRITICIZING COMICS REPRESENTING LGBTQ CHARACTERS, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. Okay? All set?

  7. LEGION OF SUPERHEROES: WEEK FORTY-NINE

    on Dec 10, 2018 5:40:00 pm - 905 views | 0 comments
    A brief history of the Teen Titans. Back in the 1950’s, any hero worth his salt needed to have a sidekick. Batman had his Robin, Wonder Woman picked up Wonder Girl and the Flash-family gained another speedster named Kid Flash. Even Aquaman and Green Arrow sported their own teen-aged proteges. Not to be out-done, Superman gathered a menagerie of...

    In keeping with my current efforts to more familiarize myself with the current state of Mainstream Marvel Superhero Comics, I've enlisted my comic collectin' daughter to help me out a bit. With a few exceptions (such as Captain America, Punisher, and Moon Knight), I'm just not really interested in much that Marvel has been putting out for quite a while now, as far...

    So, it’s December already. The days are getting shorter and nights are getting colder. ‘Tiss the season to bust out the ugly-sweaters, prepare some nice hot chocolate, and hustle over to your favorite comic shop to purchase a gift for your old pal, Mekdinosaur. Check out my current “want list” on my home page if you need a hint. Wink. Might as...

    Welcome to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk, where I take a look at some of the more "Collectable" or "Valuable" comics I own instead of my usual dollar box fare. This time out (in keeping with my current focus on Mainstream Marvel comics) we're taking a trip back to 1966 for a look at Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby's Fantastic Four #50. I...
