MARCH MODOK MADNESS!

The March Madness Super-Animal Showdown isn’t the only big comics event of the month. For the last several years, March Modok Madness has celebrated this season with a concentrated mindblast of M.O.D.O.K. mania …

It’s one of my favorite feeds, and all the more precious because it happens only once per year.

Groot Cake

it’s a Groot cake!

Between The Pages covers the same era of superheroes that I love here at Longbox Graveyard, most recently with an enthusiastic supplement to this month’s March Madness Super-Animal Showdown in this terrific piece about Krypto and Streaky:

Destructo!

(Destructo probably deserved a place in our field of 32).

Between The Pages is also a member of Super-Blog Team-Up, having blogged about Han Solo, Darth Vader, Bruce Wayne & Lois Lane, and Star Trek, always with an edible twist …

So please head over to Between The Pages — a site so good you could eat it — and tell them Longbox Graveyard sent you!

The Unspoken Decade!

This month’s praise-for-the-other-guys is for The Unspoken Decade!

The brainchild of friend-of-the-Longbox-Graveyard Dean Compton, the Unspoken Decade looks at comics of the 1990s — a sometimes-reviled period that Dean asserts is worth a fresh look (and sometimes — but not always — fresh mocking).

Dean and his many co-bloggers look not only at Dean’s personal favorites like the Punisher and Darkhawk, but they cover Indie comics, too, and a generous chunk of DC’s output, including the very-good 1990s Starman reboot

I was in my Odinsleep away from comics in the 1990s, and to be honest most of the books I’ve seen from that era were pretty cringeworthy … but Dean’s efforts at the Unspoken Decade have helped me find a few classics I might have otherwise overlooked. And as for the schlocky stuff that Dean so happily lampoons — well, that just serves to reinforce my notion that the “golden age” of everything is, “twelve!” If I’d come of age in the nineties, like Dean, instead of two decades earlier, then Longbox Graveyard might look a lot like the Unspoken Decade!

So mouse on over to the Unspoken Decade, and remember the era when heads were small, biceps were big, and superior firepower was the solution to every woe! Then head on back to Longbox Graveyard, to read Dean’s many guest contributions to this site, including next week’s look at The Rampaging Hulk!
