Longboxes” are where comic book fans store their comics, and “Graveyards” are places of myth, memory, and monsters!

My name is Paul O’Connor and Longbox Graveyard is my blog about comic books. Originally conceived as a means of keeping myself on track while I organized an out-of-control comic book collection, the blog has taken on a life of its own, and is still going strong into its fourth year.

The emphasis is on Bronze Age (1970-1985) comic book nostalgia and reviews, with an occasional look at more modern work. You can best understand the ethos of this blog by reading the first post; posts alternate between reviews of books “rescued” from “The Accumulation” of the Longbox Graveyard for preservation in my curated collection, and more general posts about collecting and other subjects.

Sorry, but I do not generally accept contemporary books for review.

You can see a one-page overview of every major article published on this site by reviewing the Checklist, and you can learn about my outside blogging projects and the Longbox Graveyard Podcast by clicking HERE.

  1. I’ve nominated your blog for the Thought-Provoking Blog Award. What you have to do about it is here: http://mlewisredford.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/thought-provoking-blog/.

    It’s just a bit of recognition and publicity. If you don’t want to pick it up I won’t be offended.


  2. Hey Paul,
    I would LOVE a report card (and review 🙂 ) from you for “Saltire Invasion” Graphic Novel. I am sure you are uber busy with a million and ten comics to read, but this one is awesome….I promise. And worth a look! Would you be up for reading it if I sent you a link to a review copy? I assure you, the entire of Scotland will apprecaite it (well maybe not every single person, but all comicbook fans who have any connection to Scotland! lol) I am emailing the details to you now.
    I hope you get a chance to take a gander!

  3. I love your stuff and this blog.


  4. Paul! I just came across your blog and wish I started following you a long time ago. My inner comic book lover & scifi geek is breaking free, and having something exciting to read is just what I need. I know that you no longer have a set schedule for posting, but I look forward to what you share with us!


    • Hello, Ellie — thanks for reading and commenting! It’s never too late to become a Longbox Graveyard regular … I have almost 150 “issues” in the can (mouse over to my Checklist), and I welcome your comments on anything that catches your eye. As a nostalgia blog, nothing here is ever really “out of date” and I love getting fresh comments on articles that I wrote years ago.

      And while it is true that my publication schedule has slowed down a bit, I will still have one big original blog per month. Next week is Ant-Man, and in July I will probably look at John Byrne’s Fantastic Four. In-between, I’ll be writing about my own original series (4 Seconds) debuting on Thrillbent “real soon now,” and there are couple surprises coming up, too.

      So thanks again for reading — I hope you will subscribe to the blog and let me know your thoughts on all things Longbox Graveyard, both past and present!
