Doc Savage #2 (v1) : Where did the Son of the Feathered Serpent get the money for his fancy weapons from if not the city's gold stockpile? In which case, why did he need to kill Doc Savage? He could have just gradually stolen it.

Incredible Hulk #171 (v1) : - can someone please explain the Marvel obsession with making black people say, " weeeoh," "ooohweee" or any other variation?

- Not a good showing by Herb Trimpe

- I've also decided I don't like The Abomination, uninteresting and not really a challenge for Hulk

- Now Playing "Sweet Escape" Gwen Stefani w/ Akon

Doc Savage #1 (v1) : That is not a sword cane! It's a switch blade cane! It's hardly more than a pointy stick.

Night Nurse #2 : I was very pleasantly surprised at how well this story was done. Strangely compelling plot, even if it was a little predictable and telegraphed after a few pages. It might've been even better if drawn out over a couple or three issues, but overall a nice job. I haven't read a bio on Jean Thomas (Roy's wife at the time, I believe) but has she seen some time in the medical field prior to writing this?

Also pretty cool to see continued character development and a carryover of a plot thread from the previous issue, to keep continuity flowing, but I'd like to see the nurses in more situations where husband-hunting or social status isn't such a focus.

3 stars, and thanks to @dadoodoflow's comment, I'll never be able to get "Helloooooo Nurse!" out of my head every time I read this book!

Fantastic Four #118b (v1) : I don't usually like "what it" stories but I thought this was excellent. The twist had a real Twilight Zone feel to it and I especially like that it fitted into the main story. Really well crafted.

Incredible Hulk #160 (v1) : Tiger Shark actually isn't a bad opponent for the Hulk; he's fast and wiry even out of water. It's like fighting Namor, except he has teeth. He isn't great as a regular opponent, but it worked well here.

So the general and Talbot are going to keep the Hulk's existence away from Betty? Good luck with that! Taking her on a drive is nice and all that, but they'd also have to keep her away from TV, radio, newspapers, the Internet; can you imagine the two of them trying to get Betty's smartphone from her? "But Glenn, I want to know how the Mets did last night!" "They won again, Betty; trust me on this." I'm looking forward to the realization once she finds out; no, it's not a spoiler, it's simply inevitable.

And speaking of which, Betty feels illicit? Did we just learn a side of Betty we couldn't have possibly imagined? Let's not tell the father of the bride!

3 stars. Nice little arc going here. But I can't wait until Betty finds out!

Incredible Hulk #159 (v1) : This was a left-turn from what I was expecting. I think Gen. Ross just lost all his marbles here. The guy's made some head-scratching moves since that first gamma-bomb test, but making a deal with Abomination tops them all. Hulk or no Hulk, I have to wonder about our national security with guys like him in command.

Maybe the actual throw-down between Hulk and Abomination was brief, but it's one of the better ones I've seen them in so far. Both got some pretty good licks in, but I was looking for Abomination planning to go after Betty and Glenn in Niagara after the battle was over. The way Hulk punched him away near the end, he might do just that after all. But I was impressed with the way Hulk seemed to remember Betty as his love after his character development on Counter-Earth last issue. Quite an interesting turn.

3 stars, and waiting for Betty to learn who's back in town!

Katryn Says:
Fantastic Four #132 (v1) : The whole racial guilt thing felt really over-simplified to me, one big robot comes along and every single Inhuman is like, "Oh yeah, we're really not nice people"?
Also, I love that Johnny was nice over the break up even though it obviously pained him - and in fairness to Crystal, it's been a fair damn while since she was last with him if Franklin's growth is anything to go by, he's shown no signs before of joining her in the Great Refuge and she can't join him. Plus, the Torch had been considering dating other girls just before he went to find her.
One thing I hated was that Sue is being painted as the villain for walking out on the great Reed Richards. I can't help but lose respect for the others in the team that they don't just overlook how Reed treats Sue, they pretty much actively support it.

Iron Man #104 (v1) : Second issue Iron Man has kissed a woman wirth his mask on. Stop it!

What woman would want cold metal pressed against her? Or does the mouth part open up allowing him to kiss? I could see Stark designing something like that.

duncanm Says:
Jungle Action #22 (v2) : I have to disagree with Kez on this one. I thought the inclusion of the Black Panther in the alternate history did a really good job of both selling and explaining the juxtaposition between the imagination of someone that has lived a life of oppression and injustice so long that they've all but given up expecting different and the imagination of someone that is living in an age of hope and change, with a beacon of hope in her life.
Beyond the obvious big differences in the two stories, I loved the nuanced differences just as much. The different clothing style reflecting the ladies' ideas of "old fashioned poor". The much cleaner and healthier look of Caleb's family and home in the hopeful version. The fact that the names Hector and Joshua are used on the opposite white politician in each story, to denote how they, and hundreds like them at the time, were all the same to the point of being interchangeable.
Only reason I didn't rate it higher is that, as good as I felt it was, it didn't really do anything push the story forward or even give us character background. It more or less just gave us context for the rise of the KKK, which is something I was already painfully aware of.

Fantastic Four #17 Annual : I'm thinking back to that Interlude issue, which was a flashback. Terrax supposedly have 5 hours to live (unless I misread it) and was about to find and destroy the FF... but the have these other adventures, so there should be a way for Terrax to be alive.... ohhhhhhhh, never mind. #MarvelTime

Marvel Team-Up #15 (v1) : -I don’t have high hopes for this

-Ha! This is the issue I had as a kid that made me play house as Ghost Rider!* I only remember the “On My Face!” and the reveal, but not Spider-Man.

-*Editor’s Note: See Dastardly Dadoodoflow’s Daring Reveal of Childhood Shenanigans back in the comments section of Marvel Spotlight #5!

-I have no idea how to rate this. It’s barely two stars but figures prominently in my personal mythology (I’ll still give it two stars)

- Now Playing "Eyes Without A Face" Billy Idol (i may have used this one before, if so, and that disappoints you, go see the Franju film of the same name. That won't disappoint you!)

Avengers #12 Annual : I thought Vision was still incapacitated? Maybe the joy of starring in another misunderstanding fight was enough to fix him just long enough to be embroiled in this fun battle...[/sarcasm]

Marvel Team-Up #14 (v1) : -Dorcas is really bad at naming things

-“They’re Men-Fish of some kind!” Shut up, Parker.

-I hope everyone is reacting like school children over Spider-Man discovering a sea-cock. I am and was. It makes Subby wet! Hi Locust!

-That was pointless and badly paced

Russ Says:
Warlock #4 (v1) : Wow; definitely a huge improvement over the past five issues. Like the rest of you, I didn't see Eddie's death coming. That was pretty well done, along with Warlock opening up a can on Triax immediately afterwards. Nice job, Mike and Gil.

But up until that point, the artwork was still a little blocky and lacking perspective, while the story seemed a bit telegraphed and the dialog unnecessary at times. The series still needs a lot of improvement in execution, but things are headed in the right direction and Mike Friedrich has some good ideas for our wanna-be Golden Godling.

3 stars. Counter-DOOM should be fun! But so far, setting this on Counter-Earth as opposed to Marvel Earth still seems redundant to me. I'd like to see a storyline that makes a serious divergence from what we'd see on Marvel Earth.

JonahBlack Says:
X-Men #28 (v1) : This issue was fine, I suppose, from a plot perspective, but it was almost unreadable, dialogue wise. So much unnecessary, heavy handed exposition. Even with the introduction of Banshee, I can't bring myself to give it more than a 2.

The Thing #2 (v1) : Wow... Alynn is a monster. Who'd have the gall to find their college crush whom they practically destroyed, and ask how they deal with being an ugly freak?

@Red, I was thinking the same thing. Dude obviously knows Jack about the college ball.

Fantastic Four #131 (v1) : Wanda will probably just be happy to know he's alright when Pietro eventually decides to contact her, but I'd be careful around Vision for a while if I were him. He might not be so forgiving.

Sgt. Fury and his Howling... : I'm rounding this from two and half to three stars, but this plot's been done before. I'm hoping we start to get some more story variety in the near future. As fun as the Howling Commandos adventures have been, it's starting to become repetitive.

JonahBlack Says:
Fantastic Four #60 (v1) : I think this was a good idea for an ending (the flying wing being a swerve/decoy with Galactus' barrier being the true weapon), but the execution was terrible. It needed more showing, and less telling.

Thor #332 (v1) : What's with the resurrection of Dracula lately? This would have been rated lower if it wasn't for the ending. Definitely not expected!

TheAmazingGatorMan Says:
Thor #331 (v1) : Extra star for the last panel... definitely an angle I never thought of, but too obvious to not bring up eventually. This was way too preachy, yet displays the polarized dichotomy of today's religious followers.

Russ Says:
Warlock #3 (v1) : I also like the whole "Marvel Jesus" concept of Warlock and Counter-Earth. But this issue was disappointing; the fight didn't really convey the conflict over the "soul" of Counter-Earth very well. Gil Kane's artwork looked a little stiff too.

Some other notes....

King of the World: Warlock channeling his inner Titanic on the splash page!

Red and Gold Cheese: Adam getting struck by lightning when the High Evolutionary wants to chat. And he didn't even say "Shazam!"

Night At the Apollo: Have to admit, I didn't see the reveal coming, even though I should've seen it coming a mile away!

2 stars.
