Tales to Astonish #60a (v1) : One of the most stupid ant-man story.

phogbear Says:
Ghost Rider #24 (v2) : In the letters column, a third grad teacher wrote in for his class because they voted GR the most popular. He kept a library of Marvel comics in the back of his room!

I needed a teacher like that. My comics always got confiscated to the point I had to keep my book flat on my desk. Didn't stop my mom from buying them as long since my grades were good.

Amazing Spider-Man #105 (v1) : Smythe doesn't say that he's blocked the police access to all the cameras, so they're going to be able to look at them and see the robot. Bit of a problem when you've given the cops the means to video all of your crimes. And Pete taking his mask off, but I presume Smythe wouldn't care about that.

Amazing Spider-Man #153 (v1) : Wow, this is one of those super hit or miss issues it seems. I personally really liked it. It was a sad ending, but i don't see the melodrama everyone is talking about. No tears, no stupid comments... just a really mad spidey. And the MJxPP parts were great. Not a classic, but really good.

Silver Surfer #1a (v1) : Oh god, the dawn of The Silver Sufferer.

Depending on my mood and patience with navel gazing I find these comics either fascinating or like listening to a clever 14 year old who just discovered Camus, Sartre, & Nietzsche because they read a Jim Morrison bio and like, really gets it man.

This is the end of classic marvel. Jack felt that Stan stole the character. When Jack finally gets to draw an issue he throws a spectacular tantrum.

Daredevil #23 (v1) : I want to like the Gladiator, because I originally took to his penniless, sew-me-own-clothes origin story, but this issue felt hollow. Towards the end with the lion, I was thinking, "How much worse can it get?", then Gladiator's fickle approach at the end - "I won't finish off Daredevil but I will join the Maggia" - left me feeling that I ought to give up on him, because the bullpen really aren't going to tax themselves too much on this B-list villain. And as for the Handkerchief Marauder, while I do totally think he's an awful idea for a villain, I did like how he SKLAKKT!-kicked his computer to bits in frustration!

High Stakes - It's a good thing Senor Muerte didn't pattern his costume after keno!!!

Chatterbox - Now, I bet the rest of gang won't have Senor Muerte ramble on to them anymore!!!

Buffalo Soldier - Great scenes of High Noon playin' while Cage takes care of the creampuffs!!!

Risk Factor - So Senor Muerte's arm is charged as well...I can see that causing accidents!!!

Russ Says:
Thor #195 (v1) : This new arc is has considerable promise. This is like a couple of the classic arcs from about five years prior where there are a few compelling plot threads going at once. There's the new Mangog threat, and Hildegard and Sif in the town beyond. This could be really good.

Irony: when you battle an insect creature that calls you an insect!

I also agree with the others who are impressed with Hildegard, and are quite underwhelmed by Sif. I wish they'd bring back the Sif that kicked serious butt in her earlier appearances.

3 stars. More a set-up story really, but some decent action. So far, it's worth seeing where it's going.

Russ Says:
Adventure into Fear #12 : This was a great issue of Judge Judy errrrr, I mean, Man-Thing. I think this said a lot about racism and corruption in the early 70s, and @jwerth hit it on the head exactly: these topics are still relevant 40 years afterward. Man-Thing walking away was THE only powerful statement Marvel could make: you can't solve these issues with a mere sit-down, but ultimately these social ills destroy in the long run.

Oh, and kudos to Steve Gerber: first use of the famous catchphrase "Whatever knows fear burns at the Man-Thing's touch!"

So far, every Man-Thing appearance has been amazing. Not bad for a guy who can't think very well and doesn't say much, acting on instinct alone. He's the updated Hulk, the concept of the dull-minded monster taken to its logical conclusion. And the stories have been top-notch so far, especially for one-shots (the Ka-Zar arc being the one exception).

4 stars for a great character that's swampier than a Creedence Clearwater Revival concert!

We're allies!

Katryn Says:
Incredible Hulk #151 (v1) : Wow, low point for Betty here. She's never been a useful character, but at least she's normally just been unlikeable for being a cardboard cutout of an airhead. In this, she's either a horribly insensitive airhead or deliberately using Talbot for revenge against Bruce. I really hope it's the former, Talbot deserves way better than that.

Thor #194 (v1) : Wait, what did I just I read? Verily Odin, I sayeth unto thee...Bull$h!+!

The next time Loki swipes a ring and takes over Asgard, Thor and/or the others need to trick it off him or something. And the other Asgardians needed to at least grow a backbone and oppose him regardless of the potential consequences. There is a difference between obeying the law, and doing what's right.

The arc's atrocious ending just made me want to curse Odin all the more for being a pompous lout. And yeah, Loki deserves his comeuppance, but I thought he shone during this arc.

2 stars. At least the arc was entertaining up to the end. And as a thanks for "saving the day," I'd like to give Odin a high-five. In the face. With a metal chair.

Russ Says:
Thor #193 (v1) : Pretty epic overall battle. Surfer vs. Durok was definitely the highlight of the issue, although taking Durok into the future seemed a little deus ex machina to me. A little trip to Reed Richards's lab, a quick toss into the Negative Zone, and poof, Annihilus vs. Durok is something I'd shell out in pay-per-view for!

And yeah, I agree with @imeco and @duncanm about the 60 second rule. It doesn't apply in Asgard, and I doubt even the ring could help Loki remove or alter it. Although, it was fun to see Thor mopping up Storm Giants left and right.

3 stars. This one could've been a lot better, but I am enjoying watching Loki cut loose in Asgard. He's been fun to watch during this arc.

Russ Says:
Thor #192 (v1) : This is just weird. Not sure what Loki thinks he can accomplish by sending Durok everywhere. The Demolisher wrecks a couple of things, Thor shows up, they trade a couple of blows, then Durok gets transported to another place. I think Loki isn't as confident of Durok taking out Thor as he's displaying. But Loki IS a trickster, so all this may be masking another objective.

I have to admit though; the God of Mischief is doing an incredible job raising Hell this time around. The stories so far arenn't impressive by themselves, being more posturing than anything, but the Loki-in-charge arc as a whole is quite entertaining so far. It should be even more fun when the Silver Surfer gets involved.

3 stars. @Locust75: Stan also wrote only the first issue of the Spider-Man Six Arms arc; completed by Roy Thomas.

Thor #191 (v1) : This may cover some ground we've all tread before, with Loki taking over Asgard yet again, but having him teach Odin humility by sending him to his room has to garner an extra star. But by taking away Thor's mouth when he was trying to spur him to justice? Who did Odin say was his favorite son again?

I'm also starting to wonder how many Odin-rings there are. Didn't Loki swipe one not too long ago? (Thor #175) I don't think that one was ever found, or at least not returned. Oh well, Odin could at least become a jeweler if he doesn't get leadership of Asgard back.

4 stars. Pretty solid story overall, regardless of the ground that's already been well covered.

Thor #190 (v1) : I'm in agreement with just about everything said above and don't have a lot to add. If it weren't for the sexist overtones, this actually wouldn't have been a bad story. Good that it's all rooted in the original Norse mythology, too, but it doesn't hold up in comic form today.

2 stars. If death is a woman, I think us guys are screwed....

Excalibur #7 (v1) : Excalibut continues to be one of my favourite comics right now partly thank to Alan Davis, but it's also wonderfully weird and funny. Inferno-the-event are also fairly good although its filled with so many awesome but weird things happening in NY, that the city has to be permanently marked by this event with overbooked psychiatric facilities.

Incredible Hulk #3 (v1) : So now Bruce is stuck as the Hulk day or night. But it's ok because Rick can mind-control him as long as he never sleeps again because...radiation is magic? And Ross hates the Hulk more than ever because....he defeated the Ringmaster? I think I need to stop thinking about these so much.

Amazing Spider-Man #100 (v1) : Count me in the camp that didn't feel cheated by an issue-long dream sequence. I appreciate the effort that Mr. Lee put into crafting a separate sort of self-doubt for each villain to throw at Spidey. (Admittedly he kind of ran out by the end and the Kingpin gets stuck expressing a generic fear of failure.)

I'd much rather take an extended plunge into a character's psyche than suffer through the sort of rehashed low-grade angst that gets tossed into so many early 70s titles to stretch out the page count. *cough cough Gerry Conway's Daredevil cough cough*

Russ Says:
Thor #189 (v1) : I thought this was a little predictable, too. But what else could have happened? Besides, I think Hela taking innocent lives may be a "breach of contract" if you will, and she has thus nullified any claim on Thor she might have. Just a guess, of course.

Other than that, I thought this was pretty good. It still managed to generated a level of suspense and that was just cool. And John Buscema's visuals always impress; Hela's eyes when she gazed on those two thugs was fun!

3 stars.

Thor #188 (v1) : Odin was really beside himself, wasn't he? I liked the Infinity reveal, but anytime things get restored to where they were before with memory of the conflict wiped, the story loses a star. Now knock it off, Stan!

Too bad. This arc really picked up steam as it went forward. I didn't mention this before, but the hand of Infinity grabbing and crushing planets made for some impressive visuals! After it's all said and done, that's about the only really good thing this arc had to offer.

3 stars. I'm getting the impression that Stan merely phoned in this ending. He kinda fizzled out the end of his Fantastic Four run. I think he really saved it all for his Spider-Man run. However, the cliffhanger here does look interesting.

His best two stories by far since X-treme X-Men started are this and the New Mutants X-Men Unlimited reunion. Somewhere along the way it's like he forgot what the X-Men characters are like, but give him any of the New Mutants and he hasn't missed a beat. Hopefully Sam being around gives this series a good kick going forward.

Thor #187 (v1) : Okay, this arc is slowly improving. The cliffhanger from last issue gets topped by the cliffhanger this issue! Stan and John have done an excellent job building this thing over the course of the past 4-5 issues. Nice job!

I wasn't too pleased with Thor running from Odin the way he did. But I supposed there wasn't much he could do; even Thor knows when he's outmatched, and the stakes are much higher than the one battle. So I guess I can't blame him too much.

However, the stakes can't be THAT high. Either that, or they're not taking it all that seriously back in Asgard. I say that because Sif's found time to change clothes in between issues! This must be her third outfit in 5 issues.

4 stars. Pieces are falling into place and the pacing is excellent.

Thor #186 (v1) : Still not really sold on the arc just yet, but I have to give props to the cliffhanger. Next issue could be a throwdown for the ages.

I did have a hard time believing that Thor could beat down the Guardian with one shot after having trouble with him last issue. Granted, Infinity revived him easily enough, but still....the inconsistencies concerning Thor's strength and capabilities are bugging me more and more as this series progresses.

3 stars. Regardless of the flaws, I like what the arc is trying to do regardless. Stan did save some epic arcs for the end of his tenure (the Spider-Man drug issues and Fantastic Four vs. the Thing).

And Reyes lives in NYC, you would think they would notice she is missing.

Thor #185 (v1) : "To Infinity....and Beyond!" Figures that Odin and Thor would beat Buzz Lightyear to the punch.

Slight problem with the last few pages. One: with the Warriors Three back on Asgard yet still under Infinity's spell, shouldn't they be tearing up Asgard instead of just standing there? And Two: Mjolnir is probably still Mjolnir instead of a flying stick after Thor's transformation back to Dr. Blake. Ugh, the rules behind this are just too inconsistent.

3 stars. This should be a great cosmic arc like the arc that ran in this book 3 years prior, but I'm just not feeling this one yet.

The ending mystifies me, because all throughout the comic, from page 1, we see the city on fire, and getting more and more destroyed. The the bad guy is beaten and everything looks pristine again. Also, they tried punching him for two issues without success, so naturally the way they finally beat him is... by punching him. Jeepers.

One of Stan's last creations for this book couldn't be more appropriate. The Verbose One created the Silent One as a foil for Odin in his quest to the world beyond. Hey, I know it's not the first Secret Wars yet, but you think he'll meet....? Naah.

All joking aside, that was mostly a pretty solid issue. I'm not real sure that (spoiler) burning the book made for the best resolution, though. But this was a real cool concept and putting a more occult spin on Man-Thing stories does work. Like @Locust75 stated, we will see a lot more of Jennifer in the future, and you can actually take that any way you want!

Fantastic Four #13 (v1) : How come in the 616 everybody who gets exposed to cosmic rays gets super powers instead of cancer and radiation sickness like people in the real world?

Marvel Two-in-One #16 : The first thing you should confirm when you're going to do a Savage Lands story is "Can our artist draw dinosaurs?" The answer here is an obvious no, because while the art was subpar overall, those prehistoric animals were just painful to look at.
For something that Reed is worried about causing the end of the world, maybe he should have sent all three of his fellow Fantastics, rather than just the one guy... the least scientific one, at that.

Werewolf by Night #8 (v1) : 2 stars for the Werewolf following Krogg down the rabbit hole!!!

Credit Due - You know, Werner Roth did a pretty good job!!

Wabbit Season - I think they wasted an opportunity of Werewolf with a Rifle!!!

Holy Grail - Now I know where Monty Python got the idea for the killer rabbit!!!

Cravings - Krogg seems like a prototype for Wendigo?!!!

Marvel Team-Up #46 (v1) : I think this was a sloppy way to introduce a lot of elements from Deathlok's time that acted like this was previously known information. It made me wonder if I had simply forgotten everything about his comics.
That billboard is so disturbing for so many reasons...

Fantastic Four #71 (v1) : Well, we're on the downslope of the silver age now. I think by this point Jack is refusing to give Stan any more new characters

I still enjoyed this

Fantastic Four #70 (v1) : That's two issue in a row that The Mad Thinker didn't do his pose. Lose the Rodin yoga and he becomes a more interesting character.

Rom #1b Annual : "Gods of Galador... its Gloryhole! Who could have done this to him?!"

Oh. My!

Rom #1a Annual : Again, a common theme of human empathy and trust lacking for those that meet ROM. Then again, I don't think I'd trust an 8 foot tall silver cyborg either.

Fantastic Four #247 (v1) : I was thinking the same thing as y'all... this is how fascism takes over a country. The people beg for it. The people vote fascism into office. :(

Sub-Mariner #59 (v1) : It's almost as if Steve Gerber is attempting a parody of superhero comics here, but its unsuccessful even in that regard and out of place within the context of Everett's ongoing storyline. And like duncanm said, it's just downright offensive.

Gave it two stars instead of one because at least it starts with Tamara beating up that d-bag with the eyepatch.

Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme... : Roy Thomas's grasp of mathematics is shaky, but this was still interesting.

Amazing Adventures #12 (v2) : The Beast's sophomore solo effort keeps up the drama and intrigue from the first story. Maybe there is a change in writers here, but Steve Englehart keeps the main intended story without missing a step. However, I understand that Hank's "loss of vocabulary" is meant to add significance to the fact that his transformation is making him lose his more human faculties. I don't think it was necessary to do that; Hank's way with words is one of his best character traits. They could pull off his losing control while keeping much of his essence.

Interesting that they already pulled in a guest hero in this series. You'd think that Iron Man would note a possible connection between this Beast and the Beast he knew from the X-Men.

4 stars. Still looking good, but I'm not real keen on the next issue with Mastermind, Unus and Blob on tap.
