Titens Says:
West Coast Avengers #4 (v2) : This is so bad. Englehart's run has been terrible. I won't start naming every single flaw out there, and I'll just say that there really isn't a single thing I can call "good" about it. Not even one comes to mind. I am so dissapointed.

West Coast Avengers #2 (v2) : I'm a fan of Englehart. After his run with Avengers, CA and Dr. Strange, I was happy to see him back in action. But I have to say, this west-coast acengers/Vision arc has been dismal so far. 2 stars average so far.
The story is OK, even if the choices of villains is hard to swallow, but it's the execution that kills me. For example, all that stuff about the mother, with Viz going full "Momma!" at the end, instead of making me feel emotional managed to made me feel disgusted and amused at the same time... it felt THAT much fake. Same reactions I get with Tony's and Clint's thoughts about life and the team.
So, I'm faced with one doubt: is this 70's comic a false start, or is it me that after Claremont's x-men or Miller's DD can't accept going back in time at all, and I'll hate whatever is coming from now on in this comic.

Haunt of Horror #3 (v2) : I thought it was even better than his debut last issue. Very cold and dark ending. Also, it makes you wonder if the two possessions (this issue and last issue) are all part of a longer game.

3 stars. It'd also be interesting to find out how Desadia fits into all this.

Haunt of Horror #2d (v2) : Kind of a mess of a story. Visuals are excellent though. 2 stars.

Power Man and Iron Fist #68 (v1) : The action in this one makes up somewhat for the crap story

Haunt of Horror #2c (v2) : Some days, it's just too hard to find good help. 2 stars.

Russ Says:
Haunt of Horror #2a (v2) : I liked this one. Gabriel's irreverent attitude and a willingness to mess with a spirit's head before exorcising it made this fairly entertaining. I think a prolonged series would get stale pretty fast, but there's enough here to make a few decent stories.

@duncanm: Something about that crucifix scar on his chest drove her out the first time and now prevents Catherine from possessing him again.

3 stars. Hehehehe (Beavis and Butthead laugh) Gabriel....you had a girl inside you.

Yellow Claw #4f : Strange finds in Riverdale, eh? That's an interesting location.

So, that's the end of the 50's Yellow Claw series! What a wild series. It started strong with the dark spy style, then things went crazy when Kirby came on board. I really enjoyed this series and it makes me even more excited to get to the Silver Age stories soon!

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #4d : Kind of a silly missed opportunity for the good guys there. But, I have to admit, I didn't see that twist coming!

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #4c : Wow, those "screemies" were weird looking! I wonder what they're up to on their screemie island now.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #4a : I've never been a big fan of unexplained phenomena as a plot device. The least Kirby could have done is give some kind of explanation for the otherworldly shadow beings.

They definitely looked cool and weird, though!

Yellow Claw #1c : So Miller is mortally wounded and unarmed when Fritz decides to run away, leaving the defense plans behind? And the Yellow Claw allows him to return unpunished? Doesn't sit quite right.

Power Pack #53 (v1) : -This script is god awful and the art is a poor copy of Sal B at his worst.

New Mutants #86 (v1) : -Liefeld's pencils aren't so offensive at this point, but I know what's coming...

Spectacular Spider-Man Magazine #1a : I thought this was a great issue. Some of the perspectives are great.

Like the one on page 6. Spider-man is climbing up the wall and the perspective his behind him. That's a brilliant panel.

Uncanny X-Men #255 (v1) : -I NEVER thought I'd be happy to see a run of the Mutie Mob come to an end...

Fantastic Four #107 (v1) : Somebody needs to slap Johnny and tell him to calm the heck down. almost everything from him is a hysterical overreaction.

"You-- you failed him!"

"If he -- doesn't recover--it'll be the same as if--as if you kille him, Reed!"

"I'm the only one--Alone!"

Also, who is Reed, Marty McFly?

"You can't come in."
"What're you, chicken?"
"Okay, you can come in."

On the upside, there was a lot of good stuff to balance these gripes. The scene with Sue and Franklin was intriguing, and I also enjoyed the side effect the Thing is experiencing (I mean, he's a jerk, and I don't like him, but the story is super compelling).

Fantastic Four #106 (v1) : "Hey Doc, didn't you build a device that would conveniently reverse this unforeseen event?"

"Why yes! Why didn't I think of my Deus Ex Machine before now?"

Fantastic Four #141 (v1) : Back on form FF! I may even start looking forward to your appearances in the order again!

4 stars.

Although, Reed shouting about how they were using subterfuge was a little ridiculous haha.

Fantastic Four #105 (v1) : Hey, here's an idea: Johnny, why don't you just go live with the Inhumans? This solves a few problems:

1) Crystal can be in the rarified environment that she needs to get healthy
2) You get to stay with Crystal
3) We don't have to listen to you whine anymore

Amazing Spider-Man #145 (v1) : That look between Peter and MJ on the last page. Andru is such a great artist.

Amazing Spider-Man #143 (v1) : Terrible villain, such a waste of the visit to Paris. I can't give this issue 5 stars, but that MJ moment was really damn beautiful.

Shinderu Says:
Daredevil #123 (v1) : On the letter page it was said that Isabella will soon leave and Len Wein is gonna take over. I'm not happy about that.

Amazing Spider-Man #67 (v1) : The same goes for me...no 5 stars for you Spidey...blame your Aunt

Urgat Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #67 (v1) : Yeah but it was so well done, that it kept me puzzled at times what to believe or trying to figure it out myself before Spidey solves this. Just a great Issue and a great short Story Arc!

Shinderu Says:
Daredevil #122 (v1) : Silvermane was completely gone from my radar. Isabella's run has been great so far, he's finally made the DD/Widow team work.

Marvel Two-in-One #8 : I liked it. Ben Grimm having an honest laugh is a sight for sore eyes.

Tales of Suspense #77a (v1) : Maybe the first time Mandarin uses a power ring for something other than pushing a button across the room...?

Adventures in Reading Starring the... : That was surprisingly not awful.

Shinderu Says:
Giant-Size Spider-Man #4 : They did a great job with Frank Castle, but that sure as hell wasn't Peter Parker.
Where was his Spider-sense when Punisher saved him in the beginning?
Getting nearly overpowered by Moses Magunm?
No problem whatsoever with Castle's methods?

I dislike it when new characters are promoted by portraying them as superior to older characters and this was imo the case here.

Tales of Suspense #90a (v1) : That was way too anticlimactic of an ending for me to enjoy it. Since when did the melter's gun have a knob with what it could melt though?

jakeisquite Says:
Tales of Suspense #89a (v1) : I feel like I would've enjoyed this if Iron Man had his own comic already. The 10 page each for them just makes them less enjoyable to me.

jakeisquite Says:
X-Men #31 (v1) : I enjoyed cobalt man more than I thought I would. It's also great seeing the more human side of then X-men rather that just fighting.

Ice Says:
Miss America Magazine #83a (v7) : Ah, campaign finance. What a romantic subject.

Also..."A God Awful Small Affair" doesn't seem to appear anywhere in this book, but this page says that's the title? I had to read it when I saw that, because I thought maybe it would end up having something to do with or some influence on a favorite song of mine (which at this point, won't have been recorded for years!), David Bowie's "Life On Mars", which starts out, "It's a god awful small affair...for the girl with the mousy hair."

Near as I can tell (via Google), that phrase doesn't really seem to show up elsewhere besides the song's lyrics.

Amazing Spider-Man #199 (v1) : How does Peter get the webbing off his clothes? Granted his friends are as blind as Daredevil. Still he's pulled this trick before and its bugged me.

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #3f : This story had a couple great one liners. "I walked here in my sleep!" works kind of great.

The abrupt ending was a bit of a letdown, though.

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #1a : *As an added little bit of trivia, I just realized this issue's cover date is Oct. 1956, same as the Distinguished Competition's Showcase #4, which featured the debut of Barry Allen. The Silver Age is here! ...At least for those other guys.

Having now read a good deal of the Timely/Atlas Golden Age stories, I think a case could be made that Marvel's Silver Age era begins here too. Yellow Claw is markedly different from anything before it, in my opinion.
