Longbox Junk - Azrael (Vol. 2) Part 1: Issues 1 - 9

on Jul 6, 2017 2:55:00 am - 617 views | 0 comments
After an unimpressive introduction in the "Death's Dark Knight" mini, I pondered the question of just how good an ongoing series starring the uninteresting character of Michael Lane could be. It ran for 18 issues, so there was SOME push behind it, but from what I can see on the internet (O Internet! Fountain of Comic Knowledge!) nobody really cared. And that lack...

Longbox Junk - Azrael: Death's Dark Knight

Let me tell you something. It ain't easy being a defender of Azrael. That said. . .I'm a pretty big Azrael fan, and guess what? I thought he was a decent Batman too. Yeah, I know. DC has pretty much admitted that they specifically created Azrael in a sort of "You want this? You got this." response to constant reader demands to make Batman more grim, gritty, and...

Longbox Junk - Aliens: Berserker

on Jun 26, 2017 2:35:00 am - 467 views | 0 comments
First, let me say that I'm a big fan of the Aliens and Predator universe that Dark Horse established outside of the movie continuity in the 1990's. BUT. . . The stories varied wildly in quality. Some of them were brilliant, and are some of my favorite comics, period. Others were steaming piles of crap. The inconsistency of Dark Horse's Alien universe was its...

Longbox Junk - All New Captain America

on Jun 20, 2017 2:30:00 am - 560 views | 2 comments
Captain America is one of my favorite (super hero) characters of all time. BUT. . . I'm gonna say something here that MIGHT just be a little bit disagreeable to a lot of comic book readers out there. I REALLY like Sam Wilson as Captain America, and I hope he STAYS Captain America. Captain America: Sam Wilson is probably my favorite current Marvel book out...

Apologies to readers of this blog. . .

I've gotten some messages asking me why the entries in this blog are becoming more infrequent. My apologies, and a bit of explanation. . . I'm a night manager at a hotel and I do these during my down time at work. As the summer season goes into full swing, I have less of that down time. When school gets back in, you'll see them going back up in frequency again....

Longbox Junk - Star Wars: Dark Empire II

on Jun 12, 2017 3:00:00 am - 468 views | 2 comments
I said in the review for the first part of Star Trek: The Modala Imperative that I probably love Star Wars more than I ever loved my first wife. . .and I meant every word of it. I'm gonna make myself sound old here, but kids today don't understand what a game-changer Star Wars was back in the 70's. It was like a pop culture atomic bomb. Fallout from Star Wars...

Longbox Junk - Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Modala Imperative

on Jun 6, 2017 2:35:00 am - 312 views | 0 comments
Although this seems to have been advertised as a crossover mini between the original Star Trek crew and The Next Generation celebrating Star Trek's 25th anniversary, it's really more like two sort of connected 4 issue mini's. They share a setting (the planet Modala) and 3 characters (Spock, McCoy, and Troyka) and the Next Generation half answers a question left...

Longbox Junk - Star Trek: The Modala Imperative

As a card-carrying nerd, one is expected to take part in the eternal debate: Star Wars or Star Trek? Here's where I stand on it: I DO love Star Wars. I probably love Star Wars more than I ever loved my first wife. But as much as I love Star Wars, I ALWAYS come back to Star Trek. There's just so much MORE Star Trek out there to enjoy. Star Trek has everything...
