Into the back issue box #27

The ground rules for the posts are here.  Today, they’re particularly pertinent, as we shall see! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #26

As always, here are the rules to these posts.

After a week off, we return with … an anthology series.  Oh dear.  In theory, I like anthologies.  Occasionally, in practice they’re a bit tough to pull off.  Which will this be?!?!? Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #25

The rules.  Yes, I link to them every week.  But you never who’s new!

This week the randomness of the exercise brings us the second straight Kurt Busiek comic book.  But I very much doubt if you will guess which one it is … Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #24

I should point out the rules for these posts.  I don’t think I’ve ever done it before!

I still yearn for a good comic to read for these posts.  This week, I get my wish!  It’s a Festivus miracle!  After the past few weeks, it’s a welcome change. Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #23

Yes, I’m back with the rules for these posts.  I figure there might be someone who doesn’t know them!

Well, I wished for a good comic this weekend.  I didn’t get it, sadly.  Stinkin’ muties.  Does anyone ever wish Bastion had succeeded in his diabolical plan? Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #22

I will direct you to the rules for these posts, even though you should know them by now!

Today: Is it really that difficult to write a decent comic book? Really? Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #21

Are there rules about these posts?  Of course there are!

Did you ever wonder what a comic book on steroids would look like?  Wonder no more! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #20

Ground rules, as usual.

Today’s entry features a rather obscure comic with some very early work by one of Cronin’s favorite comics professional!  Who could it be?  Read on … below the fold! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #19

So the rules of these posts are here.  You know the drill!

Today’s selection is weird.  It is written by perhaps the greatest comic book writer ever, but if a first-time comic book reader read it, they might be turned off of the medium.  What could it be?  Read on … Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #18

As usual, check out the ground rules here.  If that’s your thing.

Today: a very special movie tie-in, plus Secrets of Into The Back Issue Box Revealed!  Oh, it’s going to be wild! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #17

You know the rules, right?  Well, if you don’t, there’s the link.

Today’s selection: a somewhat lousy comic book that works surprisingly well if you’re a first-time reader! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #16

I’m putting the ground rules for these posts first today.  That’s just how I roll! 

Today’s issue is Part 6 of 6 (or, as the splash page pretentiously calls it, Part VI).  Where’s my trade paperback?  Shouldn’t this be perfect fodder for that???? Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #15

Today’s entry fulfills almost all the requirements that are needed to hook a new reader.  Or maybe I’m just prejudiced because I liked it.  We shall see!

The ground rules for these posts are here.  But you should know them already! Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #14

This week’s selection is not bad, actually.  It’s not great, but it does a good job telling a story and getting us all up to speed.  What more can we ask for?

I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out what I’m doing in these posts.  So if you’re new, read away!

I’d also be remiss if I didn’t point out that you can still enter my contest!  You have until Sunday at midnight!  I’ve gotten some very good entries, but anyone still has a chance to win.  Why couldn’t it be you?

Moving on … Continue Reading »

Into the back issue box #13

This week: a beloved pop culture figure gets updated for the late 1980s/early 1990s … and the results are less than stellar, to say the least.  Read on!

As I do every week, I point you to the ground rules for these posts.  It’s all about the ground rules! Continue Reading »
