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.

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:
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 #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.

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.
 
Marvel Comments
 
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.

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #3a : I wonder how much the Yellow Claw had to pay those mercenaries to be subjected to the shrinking machine.

metasynthie Says:
Ghost Rider/Wolverine/Punisher:... : It's almost comical that the edgedark cameo boys are all drawn together and the entire story revolves around a (wannabe) Satanic figure tempting them to go Full Edgedark and Murderous, entirely what they're known for, and they're all like "...eh, naaah" without much struggle at all. There are no bad guys who get murdered for being evil in this story... starring all three characters whose role it is to controversially murder bad guys!
 
Marvel Comments
 
metasynthie Says:
Marvel Super-Heroes #7b (v2) : I like the idea of the Golden Age Angel coming back, and it's interesting that he recurs in Peter David's Hulk... however (vague spoilers) I gather editorial made David retcon some aspects of this appearance in ways that will become clear in the Hulk.

Avengers West Coast #6a Annual : Subterranea COULD be the site of a lot of interesting non-human politics and intrigue for a longer story arc, but I guess it'll be a long time before anyone bothers with that.

Tales to Astonish #75b (v1) : I suppose Rick is too young to think of insisting on a lawyer, or perhaps too pessimistic.

metasynthie Says:
Avengers #20b Annual : Subterranea: the narrative dumping ground. Need a random, barely sketched out villain who hates humanity? Visit Subterranea! It's a barely amusing concept to do a "what if everyone from Subterranea" annual... barely.

metasynthie Says:
NFL Superpro #1 : I was expecting NFL Superpro to tackle ridiculous villains, but he's fighting organized crime and dealing with corruption issues? It's not as hokey, but I'll be pleasantly shocked if these issues get bold enough to tackle any actual problems that the NFL might not want to air publicly. Sadly, I'd bet more that they follow the same kind of formula as this issue: "we cleared your names, football player, football coach, NFL commissioner, etc! It was some other bad guys who have nothing to do with the NFL!"

Daredevil #118 (v1) : Ringmaster: "Is there no justice?" We've been asking Marvel's writers the same thing anytime you appear, buddy. And Princess Python's going to show up in Cap's mag soon, so I echo your sentiments.

1 star. 'Nuff said.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Giant-Size Fantastic Four #3 : Egads this was atrocious. Yeah, Apocalypse would've had these wanna-bes for breakfast. I was going to ask how the Avengers didn't get involved at first, especially Thor who absolutely would not have been put to sleep by these guys, but they must've figured "Reed and them got this; they don't need us." Good call.

Basically, this translated to an alien invasion, little else. Been there, done that, got the FOOM t-shirt.

And Reed shoving that guy's head into a bowl of rice. I'd call that ridiculous except for the fact that because of his well-documented treatment of Sue, I almost believe he would actually do that to somebody.

1 star. Hey, Marvel should've had their own Four Horsemen, all writers who are consistently bad or misogynistic: Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, Arnold Drake and Len Wein! (or swap out any name with one of your own choosing, you probably won't be wrong)

JonahBlack Says:
Daredevil #78 (v1) : Look. I get it. Superheroes have fantastical and impossible powers. Comics require some suspension of disbelief.

But when Daredevil identifies a poster of Karen, it pushes beyond my limits. How would he even do this? Did he smell her likeness? Hear it rustling like a picture of Karen would? Also, I can buy that he can read by feeling the type on a page, but how does he identify and trace the curve of Karen's face?

Night Raven: House of Cards #1 : I can answer some of those. Augie was a mortician. He got killed because the tip he gave his boss got Vinny killed.

No idea for the ten bullets though.
 
Marvel Comments
 
JonahBlack Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #98 (v1) : This is a great example of one of the core parts of the Spider-Man story: When you endanger his friends, Spidey stops being nice, and you get left as a heap in an alley, rather than webbed up, but unharmed.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #36 (v1) : Yeah, I sure didn't expect this series to end this way. I think there was supposed to be an issue #37 but Astonishing Tales was cancelled. Too bad, because this was supposed to signal a new direction but instead ended things on a bizarre note.

2 stars for this story, but a final grade of B for the series. It did well telling a fairly coherent story of a somewhat dystopian future of technology gone amok. It ended with a number of loose ends but it's rare that a series does end with everything sewn up neatly (just one so far, to my knowledge: Simon Garth). Still, pretty impressive overall; I was entertained in spite of its flaws.

Marvel Two-in-One #48 : Same lame villain. Would like to see more Jack of Hearts.

Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #35 (v1) : I sure didn't see that ending coming.

I had a feeling Hellinger was pulling more strings than what initially met the eye. The extent of his role in this affair was revealed slowly and well done. This series still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

4 stars. Because saying memory patterns are stored on this special tape sounds cooler than saying "I got his memory patterns saved on this memory stick!" And who wants to say they're working on someone's stick anyway?

Astonishing Tales #34 (v1) : In cyberspace, no one can hear you scream! It usually just comes out as static.

Liking this new direction, too; I'm sensing an endgame here which might end this series shortly, but that's not a bad thing. The showdown in Ryker's computerized world promises to be quite fun; how forward-thinking this story was for its time.

4 stars, mainly for its glimpse into our future.

chademe Says:
Tales to Astonish #101a (v1) : How could the all-seeing Heimdall not have noticed the giant green monster that's been ramaging over the earth and even teamed up with Thor? And I haven't seen Hulk just stop fighting in the middle of battle. Too many inconsistencies in this one for each to enjoy.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #33 (v1) : Yeah, Hellinger was bad news, but nice reveal. I think the seeming overuse of cyborgs here is just revealing the extent of Ryker's reach in this arc.

So far, I think this entire arc has been well presented, even if there's a lot we've already seen before. Sure, there have been a few hiccups in places, but at least to me it seems more fresh this deep into the series than most other series we've seen in the 70s.

3 stars. Also a pretty good cliffhanger.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #32 (v1) : Amazing how a simple dagger, no matter how well thrown, can do so much damage to a helicopter's stabilizer blades.

The stories here have lost a considerable bit of that edge they had early on, but they're still fun. Hey, does anyone know whose face that was on that phony $100 bill? Sure wasn't Benjamin Franklin!

3 stars. I think everyone knows what my suggested listening for this story is.

 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #31 (v1) : Yeah, the short weight of this story put the arc into something of a holding pattern. That was also quite an exchange between Deathlok and Mike; yeah, I get Luther's reaction but he WAS considered dead, and nobody was going to put their lives on hold because of that. Maybe it was a slightly overused plot device, but it was handled pretty well, I thought.

3 stars. At least nothing here so far has downright sucked. That's saying something.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #30 (v1) : I'm loving these rock music references here. The cover's blurb and the part 2 title of the story being paraphrased from an old Traffic album "Shoot-Out at the Fantasy Factory"; the story title from the Doors; Ryker's "Savior Machine" from an old David Bowie deep-cut; am I missing anything else?

Gotta love Mike escaping from a computerized facility with the use of a punch card. Wouldn't it be cool if the software lock on Apple's iPhones can be lifted the same way?

3 stars.

Avengers #275 (v1) : Apparently a god cannot die...
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #28 (v1) : The first part of the story did suggest a possible character study, which wouldn't have necessarily been a bad thing, but I'm glad it didn't go that way. Overall, this wasn't bad, it did keep the narrative going, but it was a step down from previous issues. That tank is considered that much of a threat, though? Really?

3 stars. Interesting shift in thought out of Ryker though.

Zirilian Says:
The Outlaw Kid #1a (v1) : Kind of strange how they reused lance temple and some of the other story gimicks they used in the Texas kid series. Its too similar to be a coincidence but it seems to be a different lance. Now I am curious why they didn't just update the old lance with a new costume and name instead of making a copy.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #27 (v1) : Pretty wild story here. Ryker has lost his marbles, and I get what he thinks he's trying to do, but he's not even consistent within himself. I'm not real sure how to take this at this point. The ending was pretty powerful stuff, though. I'm probably in the minority here about the computer voice, but I think it's an important part of the duality of Deathlok's character, and what it did at the end helped solidify that and justified its presence in the narrative. Nicely done.

4 stars. So was Mike really in War-Wolf? The world may never know, and it wouldn't be a bad thing to leave that ambiguous.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #26 (v1) : @sbcolt15: I think something was out of order here too. I hadn't seen where Deathlok's knee was injured and the computer had initiated the healing process; a few panels later one of Ryker's men bit his leg. They were running a lot of flashbacks and the story order got confusing as a result.

Other than that, I do like where this is going so far. The cliffhanger was telegraphed a few pages prior, but that didn't stop this from being an enjoyable read.

3 stars. Here's hoping the momentum doesn't slow like other series.

Squadron Supreme #10 (v1) : So many words.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Astonishing Tales #25 (v1) : Very impressive debut to this series. I knew it was going to be good but I found it edgier and more modern than I expected, almost a 90s feel to the story. Of course, this is Marvel jumping on another pop culture bandwagon: "The Six Million Dollar Man" was one of the most popular TV shows at the time this came out. "Gentlemen, we can rebuild him; we have the technology!" Of course, like @duncanm stated, this is a little closer to Robo-Cop.

4 stars. The violence here may be a little gratuitous, but a great premise has been set up and I think this long run might be enjoyable to read.

Marvel Premiere #19 : Professor Wing really isn't bothered by that cult being after him, but I guess it has been 9 years and they still haven't managed to kill him. That's probably long enough to go from serious threat to minor nuisance.

AwesomeSauce Says:
Fantastic Four #219 (v1) : Not bad for a filler issue. If I was going to write an issue of FF it would probably be similar. First scene: Science! Johnny heat the thing, Ben lift that other thing, Sue go away! Interrupted by a giant monster! Second scene: Ben punch the monster, Sue protect somebody, Johnny go do a macguffin thing/get taken out to prove the situation is serious, Reed bark orders and then run back to the lab to do a science thing! Third scene: Ben and Sue: Reed better get back soon, Johnny back in the fight, Reed shows up with a whatsit to even the odds. Epilogue: the day was saved with the power of family/teamwork, heartwarming speech, Ben is grouchy.

Quick Trigger Western #15a : Actually, a kind of interesting Western origin story for once. It's too bad he apparently never shows up ever again.

It's possible I'm biased because I think "Dakota County" is supposed to mean the Dakota territory which became North and South Dakota. As a South Dakotan, born and raised, it's nice to see my home state...kinda sorta make its way into the Marvel Universe maybe.

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #2a : Five stars for the return of The King! I liked the gritty, dark spy thriller style of Yellow Claw #1, but they just let Jack go Kirby-crazy with this one! That wild scene on page 3 is maybe my favorite page of the Order so far. That's some trippy weirdness you don't see elsewhere. I dig it.

Unique characters too, the "mutants" Yellow Claw has mind controlled aren't like anything we've seen before. I'm not a fan of psuedo-science stuff like "people only use 10% of their brain", but I'd be here all day if I just wanted to nitpick inaccuracies in old comics.

Here's an interesting bit of trivia from comics.org, "According to X-Men: Hidden Years (Marvel, 1999 series) #18 these mutants appear next behind the scenes with more mutants in Amazing Adult Fantasy (Marvel, 1961 series) #14, the mutants of this story are next seen in X-Men: Hidden Years (Marvel, 1999 series) #15."

Tomb of Dracula #29 (v1) : This one was an improvement over the previous arc, but not by a lot. I didn't think it was in character for Drac to seek out vengeance against Sheila, then cry over her when it happened. But David was a moron; he asked for what happened to him by waiting (like everyone else seems to do when they find Drac sleeping).

However, I'm not really all that interested in the side-plot involving Taj and his family. If Taj wanted to slap people where it would do any good, he should've slapped Wolfman for making this story boring.

3 stars, and still waiting for this title to do something....

Tomb of Dracula #28 (v1) : Recommended listening for this issue, especially the ending: "Love Bites" by Def Leppard. Seems appropriate in more ways than one.

Not impressed with this arc overall. There are some interesting ideas here, but the resolutions really fall flat. I'm still enjoying Drac's arrogant trash-talking though. He just won't give any of his opponents any credit or respect. Of course, he's still around so he's got a point. Still, they're not complete idiots if his plans are always thwarted.

2 stars. They just don't make all-powerful chimeras like they used to.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Tomb of Dracula #27 (v1) : What everyone else above said; the Chimera turned out to be just another gimmick. However, I did find the philosophical argument between Dracula and David a little interesting. A little, anyway. And Drac's interested in ruling Earth again? Guess he needs a little help from a trinket to make that happen, although he'll deny it and snap your neck for saying so.

2 stars. I thought Wolfman was saving this series?

Tomb of Dracula #26 (v1) : Man, I was a little tempted to shout at both David and Frank "Don't do it! It's a trap!" concerning Sheila and Chastity respectively.

Interesting cliffhanger there. That would take a lot to fill that chamber though. Wonder how many bottles of Dasani they have....

3 stars. Marv is throwing a lot of ideas into this book without really tying much of it together. I like the ideas, but they're becoming a mess. At least so far it's worth sticking around to see where it's all going.

Russ Says:
Tomb of Dracula #25 (v1) : I think the noir style suits this series very well. Hannibal King seems to be a character out of left field but thanks to that little twist I'd like to know more about him. It'd also be interesting to learn what Drac has cooked up this time. Seems like he's going from one plan to another just to raise some hell, or out of boredom because nighttime TV in the 70s was crappy.

3 stars. So why introduce a new angle like this then wait almost 2 years to pursue the guy's story?

Fantastic Four #136 (v1) : Wow, how has Fantastic Four gone from like the flagship, "Oh wow, a FF run in the order, I'm so excited!", brilliant read, to this terrible stuff? I mean, Dragon Man is never a big draw, and the only upside to this comic was that he was apparently "dead" at the start. Elsewise these are becoming a chore to get through now - even Benji isn't saving them.

Good job Sue left so she wasn't tarnished by these terrible storylines. Poor Medusa, she's become the token capturee also. "Johnny, Help me!" was a particularly low point for her.

I legitimately couldn't follow what the hell was going on and why in this comic. It felt like being on drugs, but not in the "cool trippy Dr Strange Comic" LSD kind of way, but in the "oh where am I help I feel sick nothing makes sense" overdose of pcp kind of way.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #11b : What the heck did I just read? You mean, throughout this series, a teacher died, not to mention a few other innocent people, a drug trade was threatening to be established that could've killed even more people, a girl had her skull surgically and mechanically messed with, just to show three guys they could be gods?

The haze must've been pretty thick in the Marvel bullpen the day this story arc was plotted.

1 star. Just nonsense, but at least it's done now. I hope.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #11a : I know it's the 1970s when this was written and published, but it sure seemed behind the times. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong. But today, "Radical Politics" could easily be confused with terrorism; so, good luck finding a job with that major under your belt, hot-shot! But really, he came across like he enjoyed raising hell for its own sake rather than try to institute any meaningful change.

Pg 15 panel 1: More Doors lyrics. Was that mob going to make sure that No One Here Gets Out Alive? They probably outnumbered the National Guard there Five to One!

2 stars. Not one of the better offerings, and it put college students in a bad light.

Amazing Spider-Man #66 (v1) : That is the sole reason this Issue is not getting 5*...it just gets a little too repetetive for me. This woman can stand NOTHING, she now mustn't ever watch TV again....ridiculous...

The rest of this Issue shows, why Spiderman is by far the best thing in the Order. Has a main-story, und so many nice subplots that not just flow by (except Aunt May ofc), but seriously progress the WHOLE story around a guy called Peter Parker who is secretly Spider-Man! Comic History in its finest...

Amazing Adventures #10 (v2) : This might be the worst art of the entire order this far. It's certainly the worst art of the 70's. The faces, the poses, the pacing, the framing - all awful.

I'm not completely sure how the story was - I was too distracted by the art - but the fact that I didn't really care, either, speaks to it's poor quality as well.

Amazing Adventures #9 (v2) : This reminds me of the bulk of the pre-hiatus X-Men run. There's a lot of good ideas, but it's weighed down by mediocre writing and art. I was going to give this 1 star, but Magneto's story of his escape post FF#101 was pretty good.

I laughed when Karnak karate chopped his way into the sewer, too, as there was probably a manhole cover within a few yards.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #10b : So, what removes a mind-control device implanted deep in the brain? Delicate neurosurgery? A robotics expert? Or a karate chop to the back of the head?

If you chose the third answer, you're reading a Sons of the Tiger story.

I guess since there are elements of magic in this series due to the tiger amulets, we were going to get a "mystical journey" device at some point. It still seemed a little out of place though, but it did raise the interest level of this series. A little.

2 stars. Lotus kicks Bob's a$$, and the next thing you know he's in love!

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #10a : This story was more intense than I was expecting. Steel Serpent is quite an opponent for Iron Fist; hopefully that touch of his is delayed about 18 years!

And speaking of which, I was wondering when the whole "Touch of Death" concept was going to be introduced in these martial arts comics. I remember hearing about this several years ago in Hawaii, and the idea seemed ludicrous. But there are some people in Asia who swear by it, and a few people who claim to be practitioners although the idea is considered camp in the West and played up in movies quite a bit (even non-martial arts films; plus, it might've influenced Star Trek writers to create the "Vulcan Nerve Pinch!"). Interesting stuff, it might be real, who knows?

The origin of Iron Fist did seem quite superfluous to the story. It looked like a reprint so I skipped it.

3 stars. It might've worked better if there was an explanation for the Serpent's sudden interest in K'un L'un. How did he hear of the city? Does he know someone there or did he just want to grab power for grins and giggles? Still an enjoyable read, but it missed something.

Uncanny X-Men #266 (v1) : Great introduction to Gambit. It’s interesting to see how much of his character is nailed down in this first appearance. The "chere" count was up there. I think the blades are a much better idea than the playing cards. The green energy was weird, probably because I’m so used to it being pink, but coming from his eyes was neat. The hypnotic charm will, more or less, be quickly disregarded. He’s a “charming” scumbag.

Sensational She-Hulk #22 : I've accused previous issues of being "too Gerber," but I think this issue proves there's nothing inherently wrong with the idea of Steve Gerber writing She-Hulk -- once he lets go of having to hamfistedly pastiche something, he writes a perfectly solid, competent She-Hulk comic, even if it's still not what I want out of the book.

Marvel Super Special #10 : I have other questions...

1. Where did they get the materials to build it? The Empire ravaged hundreds of worlds to build the Death Star.

2. How do you get around inside it? You would die before you got half way.

3. What about communication? Even with something like fiber optics, its going to take a long time to travel the length of the ship.

4. It would be mostly an empty ship. Two billion people is no where near enough to fill it up. Even the current population of Earth (7-8 billion) wouldn't fill it.

The was the weakest of the Star Lord stories. I don't think color added anything to the story. I miss the black and white art.

Yellow Claw #1e : I was all set to rate this one a little lower than the previous stories in Yellow Claw #1, but Suwan's twist (and the Bond style totally-not-Comic-Code-Approved escapades implied by Suwan and Jimmy's off panel clothing swapping) totally got me. I'm really liking Yellow Claw so far.

I'm not liking the trend of Jimmy getting knocked out and/or tied up every other issue, though. He's not exactly FBI agent of the year here.

Yellow Claw #1c : "San Quentin, you been livin' hell to me."

...Oh, wait. This comic predates Johnny Cash's San Quentin shows by ten or twelve years. I suppose Yellow Claw wouldn't have made it back for the concert.

Another interesting Yellow Claw story. I like the use of black to accentuate the "spy thriller" style. Plus, a Nazi gets smacked in the face with a briefcase, which is always welcome.

Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #1a : Wow, that's a heck of an intro! Here we have a spy thriller style story told from the villain's perspective, which is fairly unique in this era of simple comic narratives. The Chinese villains (and Chinese American hero!!) seem to be more than just racist caricatures, which is something that can't be said for a lot of comics in the 50's and into the 60's. Semi-major Marvel characters are introduced. I've never read Steranko's 60's Nick Fury, but I see that Woo, Suwan, and Yellow Claw all come back for that notable Silver Age series. Plus, they have a bonafide Nazi for one of the villains!

I wish Woo's debut had said a little more about him, but there's room for that in the following stories.

This is a promising introduction to what I've been told is a highlight for the final pre-Silver Age years.

Wyatt Earp #5a : Kind of unique (if kind of awkward and clunky) narration and it's cool to see a couple Western heroes bump into each other, but that's about it.

Tomb of Dracula #24 (v1) : This title did have a lot of promise, but now it seems all over the place. I guess I shouldn't complain; having Frank, Rachel and Blade chase Dracula all around and constantly fail to put him down was getting old, so the shakeups were needed. Now I think it's all too inconsistent. Clearly, this book needs a new direction.

So what is Dracula trying to accomplish now? Is he still trying to take over the Earth? Just get some revenge on Harker and the crew? The next hot looking neck to sink his teeth into? Or just that perfect cup of tea?

2 stars, but I would've saved Trudy.

Russ Says:
Giant-Size Dracula #2 : Maybe I'm in the minority, but I do think Dracula can make a good anti-hero, depending on the situation. Usually, it's to get vengeance or put some interloper in his place. Personally, I love it when Drac and an opponent trash-talk each other: "You fool, I am your superior!" "No, I am your master!" "Sez you!" Boys! Boys!

I liked Kate Fraser, but she wasn't consistent with her character here. She's a cop, and she alternated between being tough and being "the typical fearful damsel in distress" that is the typical Marvel female. I guess she was involved with forces beyond her ken, but it still seemed a little off to me. By the way, if she's a mutant, how has she escaped Cerebro detection all these years?

3 stars. This was pretty good, but just a step short of Chris Claremont's legendary level of brilliance. Likely, he's just warming up for his day in the sun.

Doctor Strange #174 (v1) : I think because he knew how experienced and powerful Dr. Strange is and as he said, he wanted to wait until his own mystic powers given by Satannish (awesome Name btw) are at his maximum to be sure to beat the good Doc Peculiar.

Kind of a letdown after the great first part, but still a decent issue.

Fantastic Four #2c Annual : >Why not have an issue where the Fantastic 4 just insult women for 20 pages? It'll be hilarious.

I would have considered the Fantastic 3 doing it, but come to think of it, I can easily figure that Sue is quite capable of trashing herself just as efficiently as the other three since it's basically Stan who puts the words in her mouth!

Battle #47e : I don't see a story called "Defeat" in this issue. The E story, Joe Orlando's story about Teddy Roosevelt in the Spanish-American War, is called "The Volunteer.

The story itself isn't too bad, really. The "who's their leader?" style storytelling helps make TR a larger-than-life character.

Werewolf by Night #21 (v1) : I haven't looked ahead in this series, but upon reading this story, I couldn't help but wonder if Doug Moench is taking over scripting this book for awhile. This seemed like wiping away the last few issues of story so he could imprint his own ideas into the book. A lot of this seemed forced and contrived. Hackett as a crooked cop seemed a bit of a left turn, even if he was something of a jerk before. The whole "killing another werewolf as a cure for lycantropy" bit, even as a spell, was a real stretch, nevermind that the victim was really a guy wearing a ring.

However, Moench did reintroduce the Darkhold into the narrative; it never should've been forgotten to begin with. That book was established as key to a cure for Jack and its disappearance without explanation didn't seem real to me. If Moench can re-establish the earlier story elements that were dropped for no reason, then propel the story forward from there, I can forgive this issue.

2 stars. Hey, Coker was a jerkwad. Of course he's going to be joyful over a guy's death if it helped him out.

Giant-Size Avengers #2 (v1) : Wow. Great story with a gut-punch ending. It was all pulled off brilliantly. Honestly, I have no words.

I never thought a time-travel story could be this good and coherent. The musings of Rama-Tut blended in perfectly with the present-day story of the Avengers trying to stop Kang's plan. The Celestial Madonna reveal was typical yet appropriate and handled well enough. And the overall story flow was fantastic. Definitely an underrated classic here.

5 stars. RIP Swordsman. You are the first documented Avenger to fall in battle. You may not be the greatest member, but your story of redemption is now the most complete of any Avenger. RIP dude, you earned it.

Avengers #129 (v1) : Yep, I didn't see that ending coming, even if I should've. I have a bit of respect for the Swordsman after this one; in fact, I even enjoyed his time in the limelight here.

The ending did give me a feeling that time is going to be messed with again. I've been hesitant to like Kang as a villain because of this; I'm not buying his story about wanting to conquer the Earth in the 20th century with heroes running around and not feeling like a true conqueror until he's besting them head-on. I really think the guy's just a glutton for punishment, and his lack of respect for the Savages errrr I mean, Avengers, always ending up kicking his rear.

Still, 4 stars because it does look like it's set up quite a showdown. But I have a hard time with the concept that Earth technology from any era can beat Thor that easily.

Avengers #128 (v1) : I'm not really a Swordsman fan, but that was pretty cold what Mantis did to him. I also couldn't believe she used that "woe is me" bit to make a pass at the Vision. I liked her earlier appearances but she's really starting to fly off the deep end.

I also wasn't very impressed with the Scarlet Witch-Necrodamus scrap. The old "I faked being beaten just to see what you can do" thing is pretty tired. Usually, Steve Englehart tells a pretty good story, and he laid everything out pretty well here, but the ideas he used weren't all that fresh. Still, he's one of the better authors Marvel has during this time.

3 stars. So, didn't the other Avengers wonder about all that lightning afterwards, even after Agatha dealt with it? I wouldn't think they were that dismissive about it.

I see the writer changed - did Conway stray from the original plot? The art is a mess, for Neil Adams at least - did he not believe in the story, and not put in his best effort? Or maybe the whole thing was reworked

Captain America #168 (v1) : I love a good mystery! I didn't guess and loved the reveal that it was Zemo's son!

I was going to lose this a star for Cap being a jerk to the Falcon though, like needlessly - and treating him like Buckey Barnes (i.e. a kid and sidekick) rather than a partner who is competent in his own right, but then I remembered that Cap didn't actually write this comic so 4 stars it is.

You know, it might just be 4 stars for me in comparison with a lot of the stuff in the order I've had to read through lately. Maybe I don't give enough things 1 Star...

Amazing Adventures #6a (v2) : The pacing of the story went a little weird in the middle, but it was still thoroughly enjoyable.

They don't state it explicitly, but I'm going to go ahead and assume that Maximus was exerting a slight mental suggestion on Karnak and Gorgon, goading him into freeing him. The stated reason that they were worried Black Bolt had murdered Maximus was dumb.

I like that Maximus' new power makes him a legitimate threat to the Inhuman Royal Family.

Marvel Team-Up #14 (v1) : I was enjoying this until page 8/9 when Namor's head seems to be imploding in on itself like a dying star. Legitimately terrified of the Namor head/face art in this comic. Readable though, unlike a lot of team-ups.

Appearance of Shanna was good, enjoyed the dinosaur going crazy (although I had the triceratops eating a horse down as "Oh, classic Marvel science", but it was a purposeful clue!)

Love that the letter page had a letter agreeing that Victorious was in no way fifty years old too.

Astonishing Tales #20 (v1) : Ok, if that's a "fifty year old man" then he's had a really rough time of it. He looks about eighty.

And Ka-Zar is like twenty five? Then why does he have a similar face to the "fifty year old man"?

I'm confused by the ages of everyone involved, here.

I did love how Ka-Zar threw the guy's weapon away being all "JUST FLESH NOT STEEL", then proceeded to get knocked unconscious for a second by the guy he was fighting.

I was about to say "Thank goodness this comic is over" until I saw he gets a solo series now...
