Longbox Graveyard Report Card

One of the things I like to do here at Longbox Graveyard is assign letter grades for each run of comics I review.

LBG grades follow the North American academic standard, with “A+” being the top grade, and “F” denoting failure.

Comics are graded against each other, not Moby Dick. And by “each other,” I mean that they are graded against the standard of classic superhero comics, not some depressing war orphan graphic novels that serious young coffee house types revere.

Here are the runs I’ve reviewed and grades assigned to date. Comics are reviewed roughly once every-other week so check back here frequently as the list grows!

  1. Just hard to see Deathlok so low. Your reasoning is solid, but I somehow just cannot agree.
