All-New, All-Different, All-Delivered!
A long-anticipated box has arrived at Longbox Graveyard Secret Headquarters!
It says Westfield Comics on the box, which kind of ruins the surprise … but this is a unique moment for me because it’s the first time I’ve bought new comics in about, I dunno … twenty-five years? Maybe longer. And when I used to buy comics, mostly I did mail order through … Westfield Comics. Some things never change!
I was a little worried about that dent in the box, but then I saw the wall of peanuts within …
… and beneath the peanuts, the precious contents!
That X-Men 92 was a gift for my pal Billy King, but the rest of the box contained my first shipment of Marvel’s All-New All-Different rolling reboot, which I will be reviewing in capsule form here at Longbox Graveyard in the weeks ahead!
I understand that reviews are a bit less useful when they arrive after the book they are reviewing, and my Westfield pre-orders sometimes show up a week or two after a book hits the street … but ordering this way lets me shave a big chunk off of cover price, which adds up when you commit to buying and reviewing 60-odd comics. And besides, for a blog that normally lives in 1978, being a few weeks behind the times is no big deal!
Join me back here tomorrow when I kick off my All-New All-Different capsule review series with my impressions of Invincible Iron Man #1!
