I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Welcome back to Longbox Junk, home of comic reviews nobody ever asked for! Once again, my apologies for summertime delays.
I've admitted before that I'm not a very big fan of what many think of as traditional comic book superheroes. . .the "capes and tights" crowd, in other words. I like my heroes to be a bit more "grounded", even if they ARE inhabiting a comic book world. Lone Ranger, Zorro, Jonah Hex, Tarzan, Green Hornet, Rocketeer, The Spirit, Sgt. Rock, The Shadow. . .THOSE are the kind of heroes that I love.

Welcome back to Longbox Junk, home of comic reviews that nobody asked for!
Well, my friends. . .I'm finally done with it. For the past couple of months and 9 posts I've been taking a look at comics in my (and my daughter's) collection that are issue #175 as a way of celebrating my 175th Longbox Junk comic review.
This is the 10th and final "Variant" of the completely unnecessary and unasked for reboot and renumbered Longbox Junk #1. And SPOILER ALERT, it's the best of the bunch! Better yet, it's completely free, and if you aren't 100% satisfied, you'll get a full refund!- read more
ANYWAY. . .

I'm celebrating my 175th review by following the lead of major comic publishers and giving you a completely unnecessary reboot and renumbering. . .including a fabulous first issue Special Collector Edition with 10. . .count 'em! TEN VARIANTS of comics in my (and my daughter's) collection that are also #175!
Welcome back to my completely unnecessary reboot and renumbering of the Longbox Junk blog! I'm celebrating my 175th comic review that nobody ever asked me for by doing something else nobody ever asked for. . .reviewing the handful of issue #175 comics in my (and my daughter's) collection!
Oddly enough, I've discovered that it seems nobody really cares about hitting their 175th issue. The Walking Dead started a new (and pretty epic) storyline in #175, but I'm not sure if that was actually planned or if it just worked out that way. Superman #175 was celebrating being the 100th issue since the iconic "Death of Superman" finale. . .but I'm not convinced that's an actual celebration of hitting issue #175.
So. . .nobody cares about the one-seven-five except me.- read more
But here we are now, right? Let's go!
Welcome back to my unnecessary renumbering and reboot of the Longbox Junk blog! To celebrate my 175th comic review that nobody ever asked me for, I'm taking a look at some individual #175 issues lurking in my (and my daughter's) collection. This time out, I've pulled Superman #175 from my daughter's longboxes.- read more
Not really sure WHY I quit subscribing to Spawn, but except for that first handful of issues, I've only gotten Spawn comics if they happen to have a cover that catches my eye or if I accidentally get one in a random comic pack (My LCS has packs of 10 comics for 5 bucks. . .but you can only see the top and bottom comic. They're like Longbox Junk lottery tickets. Some are winners, but most of the time I just waste 5 bucks).- read more
As I continue with my unnecessary reboot and renumbering of the Longbox Junk blog (All New! All Different! Pretty Much The Same!) in celebration of the landmark 175th post, I'm beginning to realize that (when it comes to comics at least) nobody gives a flying frijole about hitting 175.
I THOUGHT that since comic companies seem to be eager to push ANYTHING that will make collectors grab a copy of something they don't normally buy, that hitting the One-Seven-Five would be a little bit bigger of a deal. It just seems sort of strange that it's pretty much ignored.
THAT SAID. . .- read more
