The Cosmic Longbox demands Milestone Issues!

THN’s recent EPISODE 700 CELEBRATION keeps on keeping on! So this week, the Cosmic Longbox has the Nerds delivering eight back issue comic reviews of Milestone Issues from some of your favorite comic runs!  But what exactly IS a Milestone issue? Milestone issues are typically a celebration of a series making it to a certain issue number – issue #50, #100, or #500 for example. But it can also be an issue that celebrates an anniversary or accomplishment, like the 500th appearance of a character, as you’ll hear in this episode. These issues promised extra pages, epic character and story developments, pin-ups, and of course, cover gimmicks! But enough talk… IT’S BACK ISSUE REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT!

Back Issue Comic Book Reviews: 

Joe: Amazing Spider-Man Vol 1 300




Wolverine Vol 2 100
