Marvel Premiere #22 : I have not been disappointed. Sure, this isn't perfect story-telling, but sometimes that's not needed to be entertained!

Calthor Says:
Marvel Premiere #21 : The whole Iron Fist - Ninja interaction has been thoroughly pleasing to me, strangely enough. It looks like it might be heading to its conclusion though, so I hope it lives up to its build-up.

Marvel Premiere #20 : Good ending - did not see that coming! And surprisingly, Batroc was not as atrocious as he normally is...

Avengers #3 (v1) : @addzy94 It's a carry-over from the Golden Age when there was less emphasis on art and the writer was EXPECTED to explain a lot through speech bubbles. It improves gradually as artists and writers start to realize that such a technique is no longer necessary.

Phantasmagoria Says:
Avengers #3 (v1) : This one is okay. It starts out strong with Iron Man checking for news of The Hulk for the sake of entertaining cameos, but then quickly devolves into a standard slog-fest. Luckily, I've heard that next issue is really, really good.

Journey into Mystery #104a (v1) : Man this era of JiM is good. I could nitpick about Odin putting Loki in charge of Asgard in his absence, but he had been on fairly good behavior in regards to Odin for a few issues now, and it isn't as if Odin has a record of good decisions when it comes to Loki in the first place.

Overall, this is a damn good issue. Surtur and Skagg are pretty damn cool, as is Heimdall. Plus, I'm warming to Jack Kirby's art, as I think he's at his best when he's drawing fantastical stuff like this.

Journey into Mystery #103a (v1) : Woah, what an issue! The Enchantress is awesome, and The Executioner is no slouch either. Plus, the Tales of Asgard in this one is my favorite in that series of back-ups so far. Really, I have nothing to complain about in this issue. I really want to see just what Odin can do next issue.

Journey into Mystery #102a (v1) : Oh, and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the first time Stan introduced the creative team with cute little epithets?

Phantasmagoria Says:
Journey into Mystery #102a (v1) : @ Maidel Correction: Time Travel (almost)always sucks in series that don't pay a lot of attention to the fact that the characters are fucking traveling through time. If you really think it through and/or have good reasons why the characters wouldn't cause paradoxes, it can be great.

This issue was only okay, really. I gave it four stars for the first appearances of a lot of important characters. Did anyone else notice that for a story taking place in a future that is supposedly without weapons, there were a whole heck of a lot of weapons in this?

Phantasmagoria Says:
Journey into Mystery #101a (v1) : This issue is a definite step in the right direction for Thor and the characters that surround him. He's starting to sound more like the Thor we know and love today, and his supporting cast are all getting gradually more defined. Loki, though in this issue he has still yet to hint at the complex character he will become, shows some real cunning playing his father off Thor. Oh, and the guest appearances from Giant Man, Iron Man, and Wasp are well done.

Ultimately, the biggest weakness of this issue is the lack of definition of how strong Thor actually is. It seems a little far-fetched that he'd have trouble with a mining robot.

Amazing Fantasy #15 (v1) : Well, well...here we are at the beginning of the most popular super-hero of the 1960s to the 1980s. Even the FF and late-comer Wolverine didn't hold a candle to Spidey's popularity, and here's where it all began. It's one of the most famous origin stories in all of comics, and my son's eyes widened when he saw the iconic cover for the first time. But did he like the story?

Well, considering he has Spider-Man pyjamas, Spider-Man pillow, Spider-Man bedsheets, Spider-Man comforter, Spider-Man lunch box, Spider-Man laundry hamper, Spider-Man shirt, Spider-Man underwear, Spider-Man hat, Spider-Man mittens, Spider-Man pencils, Spider-Man coloring books, Spider-Man action figure on motorcycle, Spider-Man motorized car...

Yeah, he hated this one.

Tales to Astonish #38 (v1) : Hey, another Ant-Man comic, and his first recurring villain! Not that we know that Egghead will return, but...well, we do. Ant-Man is always a hit with my son, and he was genuinely concerned when he saw Egghead luring our stalwart hero into a trap. But he was very happy to see his daring and clever escape, and the heavy-handed morality issue didn't register with him anyway. So another triumph for Marvel, at least as far as my four-year old son is concerned.

X-Men #4 (v1) : I like Magneto and Prof meeting on the astral plane. Magneto has always been one of the best villains, and i think mostly (adding to what everyone else has already said) its because he does not consider himself to be evil. Just someone choosing a different path.

Adrian Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #10 (v1) : I think they should have used Foswell in some of the earlier comics so that it would be more of a surprise that he was the bad guy. Having him show up in this issue, made me immediately peg him. Why would they give this guy a name unless he had some sort of relevance?

Fantastic Four #151 (v1) : The alternate times/worlds theory introduced here is probably quite significant, that made this a very valuable issue to read if nothing else.

Fantastic Four #31 (v1) : Ugh. Mole Man. Strange that he's so love-him-or-hate-him around here.

Also, where did this 'high pockets' expression come from? It has to be one of the dumbest expressions Stan has used yet.

Fantastic Four #2a Annual : I loved Doom's origin story, he's definitely one of the best Marvel villains so far, in fact, he might be the best villain so for. It was great to see Stan actually giving a villain so much depth and character development.

I think Stan was actually on to something with that art dealer, that could make very interesting and quite expensive art.

Agreed on Rama-Tut, that didn't make much sense. As powerful as Kang becomes, Doom is way more badass.

The sexism in this issue was really cranked up, it seemed like Stan was starting to get better about that recently, I guess not. A big pity.

And yeah, the ending stucked but it still made a great issue over all.

Journey into Mystery #95 (v1) : Did I say Superman above? I meant Thor. Sorry, I often get the two confused.

The story ends with Thor going back to Asgard, tapping his hammer three times to stop the rain, and then having a laugh over tea with Odin. Riveting.

One star for the fateful short lived life of the synthezoid. One star for the black cats. I like black cats. I have one as a life companion. His name is Buckwheat. He's a little rascal. He's my best friend. Minus one star for Stan Lee acting a fool so often.

Dopey Says:
Journey into Mystery #95 (v1) : As most have already said, this issue is a lot of rubbish. The story starts with drought in Asgard. Thor taps his magic hammer four times and creates rain. And then, for five pages we are invested in a plot that has Don Blake who, in all previous instances has appeared to be a general practitioner of medicine and not a biosynthetic engineer, create a seemingly indestructible human clone out of some crazy material found only in silver age comic books. Said indestructible clone then self destructs, and only the unexplained presence of the mighty Thor at this biosynthesis conference saves the general population from death. Here is a good place to say: poor construct, I am so sorry that Stan chose to eliminate you, one of the coolest characters I've seen yet, after only two pages of daylight. You had such a good heart, and I will miss you.

Suddenly, at this point the plot does a 180 and Marvel's newest scientific genius has a duplicating machine that will provide said villain genius with the means to acquire absolute power over the whole of Earth. [Insert generic carbon-copy plot that we've seen three times already here]. [Insert fateful flaw of previously alluded carbon-copy that enables Superman to save the day here]. [Insert evil genius dropping his all-powerful weapon due to a trip trope here]. [Insert death by gravity that we've seen three times already here]. I feel like Stan Lee has a bunch of subplots written on small pieces of paper that he holds folded up in a number of hats and just picks four or five of them at random to come up with his stories. Which, for the silver age is all well and dandy, but Jesus Christ Stan throw out the ones you've already used instead of putting them back in the hat!

Marvel Premiere #27 : Yeah, I was thinking the same thing, Red. Glad I didn't come across this one as a 12-year old. Pretty intense stuff for a book of the time with the Comics Code seal. That innocent woman was killed and her soul "damned for eternity upon eternity." Yikes.

Fantastic Four #14 (v1) : Ugh puppet master, blech! And sue is really being a cocktease and I'm sick of it already. That's probably just another form of sexism from back then, you know, "a woman never knows what she wants" or something like that

Fantastic Four #17 (v1) : The Menace of the Moving Bars!
The Threat of the Swirling Cement!
The Panic of the Deadly Whirlwind!
The Peril of the Room Without a Floor!

The promises of what was inside this comic book found on the cover made me cringe. I was prepared for some cheesiness inside this issue. Although I do think that the cover art as a whole looks pretty cool.

Sonar heat waves combined with a highly refined radar set that's extra sensitive to human flesh covered with steel is all it'll take to find the vibrations emitted by Dr. Doom. Good thing we have the Human Torch, who discovers new talents in his miracle bag every issue and Mr. Fantastic, who can jimmy-rig just about any device ever needed. What would Manhattan do without them? Unsurprisingly, this scheme fails. Instead, floating Michelin Men and a kidnapped Alicia Masters tips the FF off to Doom's whereabouts.

"He's so grotesque that he's almost beautiful!" ... Real profound, Stan.

Human Torch is getting out of hand with these powers of his. I'm actually getting rattled over it.

Another potion for Ben Grimm! Already! However, I feel that it was used properly as a plot device in this issue, so I'm not gonna bash. Ben Grimm in a giant sperm replica is funny. He won the race and infiltrated the egg!

One star for more Doctor Doom - guy jumps out of a plane to his death rather than be caught by his foes - he's a horse. One star for the emergence of the Invisible Girl, and how she carries the team n this ish. One star for the Thing and his work out sessions.

Daredevil #134 (v1) : I feel like this Wolfman DD run is sliding off the rails. Not much to recommend this issue, IMO, and I'll be putting my copy in the recycle bin instead of selling or even giving it away.

Daredevil #133 (v1) : Props for The Think Tank concept and The Jester costume, but the Geller business was ludicrous and Wolfman, in an editorial, made it clear that Stan Lee forced his hand.

Dopey Says:
Fantastic Four #16 (v1) : Also note the Thing stating that he doesn't want to change because Alicia confessed to him that she loves him more the way he is. Stan will forget this fact many times in the future.

I love Dr. Doom and everything about him.

One star for cool Doom pics. One star for a Marvel team-up. One star for the pet squirrel offering the Thing his last nut. Minus one star for the amount of things I didn't like about this issue. One more star for the development of storytelling ability in the Marvel offices. Minus another star because I feel cynical.
