I write comic book reviews that NOBODY has ever asked for!
As I continue with my unnecessary reboot and renumbering of the Longbox Junk blog (All New! All Different! Pretty Much The Same!) in celebration of the landmark 175th post, I'm beginning to realize that (when it comes to comics at least) nobody gives a flying frijole about hitting 175.
I THOUGHT that since comic companies seem to be eager to push ANYTHING that will make collectors grab a copy of something they don't normally buy, that hitting the One-Seven-Five would be a little bit bigger of a deal. It just seems sort of strange that it's pretty much ignored.

Lobo is one of those characters I really like. . .but only in small doses.
Some of my favorite mini's and one shots of my entire collection are Lobo. With a great creative team and done right, Lobo is one of the most hilarious characters out there. Unfortunately, the character never really seemed able to sustain a regular series. I guess it's hard to keep the right level of comedy and brutality going long term.
The series at hand is NOT Lobo as you might know him. It's a highly-controversial reboot of the character done during DC's New 52 days that seems to be pretty much hated by. . .well. . .everyone.- read more
Except for The Walking Dead, I'm not really a fan of black and white comics at all, but when I saw these three issues sitting on the shelf at my local comic shop for the measly cost of $1.50 each, I HAD to get them. $4.50 for 3 new comics? Hell, son. . . the first issue of Doomsday Clock costs $4.99 by ITSELF.
So I bought these comics based on cover price and gave them nothing more than a quick flip through, enough to see there were Nazis and Zombies. Other than that, I was coming in cold. So did I get my $4.50 worth? Read on!
