Russ Says:
Vampire Tales #8a : I still like the magazine format for a story like this, but that and the artwork is about all that it has going for it. Morbius just doesn't seem like he's making any real impact here. I think it's just they didn't know what to do with him here.

2 stars. I wonder if readers at the time were just as burned out from the horror genre as we're getting.

Vampire Tales #7 : I do think the magazine format serves a Morbius series well, but this story was quite a mess. The title pretty much speaks for me: what the Hell am I doing here? It may have continued the Demon-Fire arc, but didn't really advance the story. In spite of all that, however, I thought Amanda offering herself to Morbius was worth the price of admission alone.

And yeah, Morbius's looks are a little ridiculous. I understand Sutton was probably going for a more menacing, grotesque look, but that was a little over the top.

2 stars. Wasn't great, but I don't quite get the really low rating here. Maybe some horror title burnout?

Vampire Tales #6b : Dark stuff indeed, but kind of a mess. It did leave quite a bit unresolved, but I guess that's life sometimes. Maybe this mystery will pick up again later on.

2 stars.

Russ Says:
Vampire Tales #6a : I thought this one was actually pretty good. So when did Lilith and Angel become the same person? Or does Lilith just use Angel's likeness for her own purposes? Regardless, I didn't think it detracted from the story much at all; in fact, I kinda like this setup. And the axe killer was pretty insane, but I can see his motivations. It's still a bit misogynist to believe that women back then were shunned for getting involved with a guy at that level before marriage; we certainly live in different times.

3 stars. @TheAmazingGatorMan: I think the word "sex" as a reference to intercourse was used once before, but I don't recall what issue offhand; likely one of the other black and white mags. "Sex" as a synonym to gender has been used at least once, too.

Daredevil #55 (v1) : Is a shame they killed of Mr Fear. I would have loved to have seen him go against some other heroes like Hulk, Wolverine or Ghost Rider

Daredevil #54 (v1) : That Spidey camo was way to short and unessesary. Looks like someone needs the help of our favourite wallcrawler to sell his books.

Fantastic Four #204 (v1) : They couldn't come up with a better name than Security University. It's a terrible name.

Why bother with the flare if they have belt radios? Glad to see the flare fail, because I've always thought it was a bad idea.

Ms. Marvel #14 (v1) : Even when I read this as a kid, I knew when the made Infantino the regular artist that the book was on borrowed time. Not a fan of his.

So if prescience is MM's 7th sense, what is her 6th sense?

Russ Says:
Tomb of Dracula #23 (v1) : You really gotta watch these eccentric uncles. This guy was passing himself off as one to Sheila, then claimed to be her dad. Wha...?? And the will reading when he left her the mansion: "May you find it as irresistible as I find you." Uhmm, eww?

I don't mind the occasional mysteries in this title; since Dracula and the vampire hunters are just dancing in circles at this point, stories like this serve as a necessary diversion to break up that repetitiveness. But after a pretty good setup in Giant-Size Chillers #1, this one kinda fell flat. And psycho-uncle-dad seemed to be thrown in as an afterthought after Lord Henry's demise.

2 stars. The Chillers story did establish that Sheila knew who Dracula was. Here, she seemed ignorant of that fact. Kinda threw me a couple of times, so it might confuse some readers who didn't read that first part.

Russ Says:
Giant-Size Chillers #1 (v1) : @Magik_Rune: Right, this is confusing. I think it might be better served for this story and Tomb of Dracula #22 to swap places in the Order. Too much happened here that was referred to as already transpired in the other book.

This story, however, actually wasn't half bad. Lilith clearly has some potential, and the mystery of Sheila's tormentor had me wondering for a bit. The story itself didn't do a lot toward advancing the main plot running throughout ToD, but it didn't give some interesting bits.

3 stars. So, if Dracula has renounced his desire to take over the planet, what's he really hanging around for?

Russ Says:
Tomb of Dracula #22 (v1) : I don't think he meant to kill her, at least not in the normal sense. Time will probably tell if she's going to be an undead though; hopefully, we'll see Petra again.

Still, I agree. Explanations would have been nice. Gorna's story doesn't feel like it's over. If it is, this was poorly written with too many liberties taken of vampire lore. Too bad, Gorna had a little potential as an adversary, but his obsession with his wife made him seem too petty to be taken seriously. Dracula clearly agreed.

2 stars.

Captain Marvel #17 (v1) : I'm excited to see how this series changes from now on. Sadly we have to deal with Rick Jones but hopefully he will spend more time in the negative zone then not.

Captain America #300 (v1) : I agree, this arc could and should have been so much better than what we get here. It's like they tryed to do a Frank Miller style arc mixed with teleporting pacifists turned bad and super powered natives. Half the things we saw make no sense, and don't mix at all with the serious parts about the skull. The general execution, except a few great parts involving skull, was bad, and it dragged everything down. With all that said, this was still a special arc, one that i'll remember for years, so i won't deny it has its merits.

Amazing Adventures #27 (v2) : From cereal to beer. Careful, Killraven; if that brew's been fermenting there awhile, it's liable to pack quite a punch!

This was a little better than last issue but this series overall is getting really hard to follow or care about. However, I'm with the others; I'd like to see Adam and Eve's baby be born and face a better fate than what's apparently in store for him or her.

2 stars. I'm not sure how or why, but there's something "Age of Apocalypse"-ish about this particular story....

Titens Says:
Captain America #298 (v1) : It was a really dark origin story, but I felt it more like a story lesson than an emotional trip across the Skull's life. It is a fine line that separates success and being boring when doing drama, unlike comedy and action that it's somehow easier to read even if not great. In the order, Starlin's Death of Captain Marvel has been by far the best executed drama, in which something simple as death by cancer of a not so great hero manages to reach your heart with lots of strong emotions. In here, I felt nothing for his mom, felt nothing for his father, felt nothing for his first love, felt nothing but annoyance for his parts with Hitler, and I did like the part about him becoming crazy for not having a boy (since it was the only thing that I didn't expect, even if I should have). Yet at the same time I feel that with better execution, this could have been a big success.

It wasn't bad, 3 stars issue for me, and some parts were pretty good, but not engaging or emotional enough for a 4 stars either.

Amazing Adventures #26 (v2) : Oh man, this story was just....yeah, I'm gonna say it.....this story was Fruit Loops. Killraven and Company get Tragically Malicious on poor Pstun-Rage. Does that mean they're now considered Cereal Killers?

Honestly, how valuable is that stuff now that there's hardly any milk?

1 star for a story that leaves us all cocoa for Cocoa Puffs.

Marvel Spotlight #17 (v1) : It was a bit of a mess, but it did have a few twists and turns to keep it interesting enough. I did like the connections with the Tales of Atlantis backup in Sub-Mariner's mag with Zhered-Na from the Man-Thing story in Adventure into Fear #15.

2 stars. Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall.

Ghost Rider #81 (v2) : This probably doesn't deserve 4 stars, but they really pulled this series out of its rut at the end with a satisfying conclusion.
