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 Longbox Junk delays. I do these in my spare time at work managing a hotel and summer is the busiest time of year. The good news is that fall is in the air, schools are starting back up, and things should settle back down into a slow winter's groove soon.
ENOUGH OF THAT!- read more

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!
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
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
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
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
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
