I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Generally speaking, comic book fandom seems to cross over with certain other fandoms pretty easily and often. Video games is one of those crossover points with comic books that is a great example of how two seemingly different things can come together in a great way. . .well, mostly great anyway.
Like just about everything else on Earth, there's good AND bad to be found in the many comic book/video game crossovers out there. . .which brings us to this Longbox Junk entry.
This time out, I'm gonna TRIPLE down on things I love with not only comic books and video games, but ALSO my great love of the one shot! I know that there are a lot of people out there who prefer the history, background, and ever-changing storylines of an ongoing series. . .especially one that's been rolling along for a while. There's nothing wrong with that.- read more

Let's start the New Year off right with a Retro Review for the first 2019 Longbox Junk post!
If you're new to Longbox Junk (Welcome, and thanks for reading!) "Retro Reviews" are sorta special editions that show up every now and then where I take a look at some of the more "collectible" comics I own instead of my usual dollar box fare.
They're still comic book reviews NOBODY ever asked for. . .the comics are just worth a few more dollars, is all.- read more
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 the older or more "valuable" comics lurking in my 45 Longboxes.
Sheesh. . .45 boxes? My local comic shops should send me a Christmas card thanking me for clearing out their unwanted inventory.- read more
IF YOU GRIT YOUR TEETH AT THE THOUGHT OF "SOCIAL JUSTICE" OR "FORCED DIVERSITY" IN COMICS, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW.

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 as their superheroes go.
It's not that I don't like Marvel. . .it's just that honestly I'm more of a DC guy when it comes to NEW comics. Give me some Bronze-Age Marvel, though, and I'm a happy man.- read more
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 have to admit something right off the top here. . .
I've never been a fan of the Fantastic Four.- read more
Fair Warning: This is an "All Ages" series. Just bear with me. . .
I know that I'm writing toward an adult audience, but sometimes even adults just want to have a little fun in their comics, right? I know I do from time to time. So why not check out what's going on in some of those comics you might otherwise pass over as kiddy fare?
Allow me to explain. . .- read more
