I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
Welcome to the LONGBOX JUNK #1 SPECIAL COLLECTOR EDITION!
While pondering how to have a bit of celebration for the 175th Longbox Junk Comic review that nobody ever asked me for, it crossed my mind that there really aren't many comic series that have hit 175 issues recently, thanks to "The Big Two" wanting to promote those SWEET #1 issues, and in the process rebooting most popular series back to #1 every couple of years whether they need it or not.
Now, this isn't really the place for a rant about things like. . .say. . .THE PUNISHER BEING ON FRIGGIN' VOLUME TWELVE NOW. . .for example. No, my friends. There's an old saying about how if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I've decided to take that saying to heart and reboot Longbox Junk back to that SWEET Collector's item #1!- read more
Doctor Doom. The name alone says it all.
There's no denying that Doctor Doom is one of the most iconic villains in comic books. From his great costume design to his over-the-top third person megalomaniac dialogue, Victor Von Doom is a classic character that has stood the test of time.

Sheesh! I've been doing the work of 3 people spread over 2 different shifts for about a month now . Thankfully, I think the worst of it is past and I can get back to my normal night shift and have some time to throw down some tasty Longbox Junk starting back up next week. Sorry about the delay!- read more
Due to my work being unexpectedly busy these past couple of weeks when it SHOULD be the off-season, I'm a bit behind on the Longbox Junk. It's okay, though. . .I'm not exactly on a strict schedule with this thing anyway, so there's Longbox Junk coming soon, just not as soon as I was hoping.
THAT SAID. . .
How about a nice, tasty Retro Review to tide you over?- read more
Let's do away with the long intro this time out. If you've read Part 1 of my Longbox Junk video game one shot special, then you know what this is about. . .Video game-based one shots.
If you haven't read Part 1 yet, I have to ask. . .
Why are you reading Part 2 first? You some kind of Commie?- read more
Welcome to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk!
Once again, I step outside of my usual bargain bin finds to take a closer look at a comic from my collection that might be considered more "valuable" than most of what I own and give the internet a classic comic review that NOBODY ever asked me for.
This time out, I think I've really outdone myself on the "Review that nobody ever asked me for" front, in that I believe that this will be the only review of this comic that has EVER been done. . .and I'll take a safe bet that there probably won't be another one.- read more
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
Anyway. . .
Let's get into some Longbox Junk!- 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
