Shinderu Says:
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.

Urgat Says:
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.

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

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

Shinderu Says:
Monsters Unleashed #10b (v1) : I liked the visuals. Tigra has some fine ...art.

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.
 
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.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Ice Says:
Yellow Claw #3a : I wonder how much the Yellow Claw had to pay those mercenaries to be subjected to the shrinking machine.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Katryn Says:
Man-Thing #5 (v1) : They've gotten really good at the Man-Thing's almost kind of humanness. It's amazing how they can tell almost any sort of story with him and it works.

Russ Says:
Amazing Adventures #9 (v2) : Blob in a thong.

NEXT!

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.
 
Marvel Comments
 
metasynthie Says:
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.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Corlagon Says:
Tales to Astonish #75b (v1) : I suppose Rick is too young to think of insisting on a lawyer, or perhaps too pessimistic.
 
Marvel Comments
 
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!"

metasynthie Says:
Captain America: Return of the... : Why... why does every asthmatic join the swim team? Or coach a swim team? Did they tell Howard Mackie that swimming was the best sport for asthmatics because of lack of dust, or something?!

Russ Says:
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)

Ghost Rider #15 (v2) : Asbestos is like magnets: magical and can do or withstand anything it needs to..

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.
 
Marvel Comments
 
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?

Russ Says:
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.
