I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
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
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 one and all to another "Retro Review" edition of Longbox Junk!
This week, we travel back to 1964 to take a look at DC's long-running team up title, The Brave & The Bold. I've previously dipped into B&B here on Longbox Junk, but more toward the end of its run during the 80's. I found the issues I reviewed (with a couple of exceptions) to be pretty weak and not seeming to have much effort put into them. It was obvious that the title was about done for.
THAT SAID. . .- read more
Welcome back to the series that's like that one guy at work who just does what he has to do and nothing else. He knows he's never going to get a great review from management, but he doesn't care as long as he just gets paid.

Welcome back to the 80's! Smell that cheap paper, boy! SMELL IT!
That's right. We didn't need fancy paper in my day. And stories that made sense? Didn't need those either. You kids don't even know how good you got it now. I had to buy MY comics from the grocery store. One story in every issue. None of that continuity you kids talk about. Didn't need it.
