Longbox Junk - One-Shots (part 1)

234 views • 10 weeks ago • (0) Comments

Welcome to Longbox Junk, the place to find all the comic reviews you never asked for!

I've said it before and I'm gonna say it again.  Of all the different kinds of comic books out there, I'd have to say that my ultimate favorite is the one-shot.  To me, the one shot is a supreme test for a creative team. 

 By giving a team one and ONLY one issue to tell a complete tale, their storytelling ability is put to the test.  There's nowhere to hide.  No room for error.  To fail the test is easy, and actually pretty common.  There's PLENTY of bad one-shots haunting the bargain bins.  But when a team succeeds?  It's often pure Longbox Junk gold!

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?
