I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Moon Knight is a character that is often referred to as "Marvel's Batman".
Sure, there are similarities. . .some of them are pretty obvious. Both are super-wealthy, cape-wearing non-super powered vigilantes with themed weapons and vehicles. Okay, I can see where people draw the "Marvel's Batman" conclusion from that kind of surface observation.- read more
I know. . .I know. Since I tend to post these very late at night (or early in the morning, depending on how you look at things), it's probably November 1 for most of those reading.
I DID have 2 more Halloween posts I was planning on throwing down before the 31st, but due to unforeseen work circumstances (another local hotel had a gas leak and my hotel inherited all their guests, so we've had a sold out house when we're usually running about 30-40%) I haven't had the time I usually have this time of year to read and review comic books.- read more
Welcome back to Longbox Junk for some more Halloween comic fun!
So far through this month, I've posted about DC Superheroes in sort of Halloweeny situations. . .A comic book sequel to The Fly II. . .Lovecraftian Sea Creatures. . .Twilight Zone-ish tales from the 1960's. . .Alien Vampire boobs. . .and DC Elseworlds Horror. A pretty interesting mix, in my extremely humble opinion.

Welcome back to Longbox Junk's Halloween Party!
Just remember. . .Human Resources is still coming in on Monday, and they don't base decisions on how much you had to drink. Got it? Let's do this!
Previously, I reviewed a handful of DC's annual Halloween Specials and was pretty disappointed. For the price they were charging, there were very few good stories. The running theme seemed to be 2 good, 2 bad, and the rest filler in all three issues I took a look at. Worse. . .for comics with taglines like "Embrace the Terror!", there wasn't a single story that really could be called a horror story. They were mostly just DC Superheroes in sorta spooky situations or having Halloween fun.- read more
Halloween! It's that special time of year when children get their first basic lesson in the cornerstone of Socialism. . . Redistribution of Wealth! I have a giant bowl of candy. Those who have less candy than me come to collect a portion of my candy under the threat of punishment if I do not comply. This continues until I have no more candy.
Welcome one and all to another Longbox Junk special Retro Review edition, where I step away from my usual bargain box fare and take a closer look at some of the older and more "valuable" comics in my collection.
Since it's October and I've been having a bit of Halloween fun here at Longbox Junk, I figure why not throw in a Retro Review of a horror comic while I'm at it? Why not indeed! Let's do this!
TOWER OF SHADOWS #1- read more
Continuing my month of Longbox Junk Halloween fun, I present for your consideration a little item I pulled from the forgotten depths of a dollar box a couple weeks ago. I bought it for the awesome cover. . .but is the story inside a trick or a treat? Let's find out!
