Welcome back to my unnecessary reboot and renumbering of the Longbox Junk blog! I'm celebrating hitting my 175th post by looking at comics in my (and my daughter's) collection that managed to hit that big one-seven-five as well. . .even though so far, it seems that nobody seems to care enough about getting to 175 issues to make even a mention of it.
This time out, I'm taking a look at Spawn #175. Spawn is a character that I REALLY liked a lot when he first came out. I was fully on board for about 20 issues before I fell off the Spawn wagon.
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).
