Lost in the Longbox Ep. 29: The Incredible Hulk #296

(Marvel Comics 1984)

Written by Bill Mantlo

Letters by Joe Rosen

Colors by Bob Sharen

The Hulk is a first for many comic readers. When I was a kid there was a cartoon and a live action show. Everyone can connect with the “man inside the monster” story on some level, and being able to throw a car into space is pretty cool too. Continue reading


REVIEW: ‘Trees’ #1

(Image Comics, 2014)

Words: Warren Ellis
Art: Jason Howard

A whole lot of something.

I have the upmost respect for Warren Ellis. The man has written some of the most highly regarded stories in modern comics. With The Authority, Transmetropolitan, and Planetary being the most notable standouts in a very stellar body of work. So you can imagine that before reading Trees #1, I couldn’t help but be exited.

‘Whovian By Design’ with Franco Romualdez, Episode 7

Review of “The Girl In The Fireplace”
Episode 4 - Series 2

Review by Franco Romualdez

- “My Dear Doctor, The path has never seemed more slow and yet I fear I am nearing its end. Reason tells me that you and I are unlikely to meet again, but I think I shall not listen to reason. I have seen the world inside your head and know that all things are possible. Hurry then my love; my days grow shorter now and I am so very weak. Godspeed my lonely angel. -

If someone was asked to describe a random episode from any Sci-Fi television show in one word, I can almost guarantee you Continue reading


REVIEW: “Saga” #14

(Image Comics, 2013)

Review by Franco Romualdez

Words: Brian K. Vaughan
Art: Fiona Staples

Flying sharks! Saga, you’ve done it again.

Saga #14 picks up right where #13 left off, as is the case with more comics. I’m going to keep that first sentence in this review for one reason, and that is because it’s so stupid/obvious an observation that it’s funny.

The 10th Doctor: Simply the Best

And they will obey me!.

With David Tennant at the helm, Doctor Who began its transformation from a classic British television show to a worldwide phenomenon with the arrival of the 10th Doctor. Continue reading

Written By: Matt Fraction

*This Review is for MATURE READERS ONLY*

Who ever said sex wasn’t funny?

Matt Fraction proves yet again that he’s one of comics’ most entertaining and genre-defining writers; Sex Criminals #1 is every bit as great as I’d thought it would be and more. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who Series 2 episode: “The Christmas Invasion”

by Franco Romualdez

Did someone call a Doctor?

The parting of 9th Doctor actually came at the worst possible time for the citizens of earth. The Doctor and Rose return to the present just in time for Christmas; for those who aren’t familiar with the show, Christmas seems to be marked on every hostile alien’s calendar as the best day to invade Earth. Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who Series 1 episodes: “Bad Wolf” and “The Parting of the Ways”

by Franco Romualdez


Having watched the Matt Smith incarnation of The Doctor first, I ready didn’t know what to expect when I decided to give the first four series of Doctor Who’s modern era a shot. Needless to say I was thoroughly surprised by how well they matched up. Continue reading
