Tales of Suspense #52a (v1) : It’s lucky Iron Man carries a spare extension cord. Hope he carries international adaptors.

Glad to see Black Widow show up. The roster is starting to expand.

Was that Boris and Natasha thing ripping off Bullwinkle, or was it just a common coupling at the time that both comic and cartoon used?

X-Men #5 (v1) : I thought the Scarlet Witch’s green costume on the last cover was a mistake, but here it is again. What gives?

Cyclops can unlock doors with his optic blasts?

I like the character growth in Beast….he prefers being Hank McCoy.

That “caliber of the X-Men” crap is pure Velveeta.

Magneto should have worked at Guantanamo Bay.

It’s refreshing to see a team getting along. I’ve have more than enough bickering in the FF and Avengers.

Oh, you sneaky cue ball.

Tales to Astonish #54a (v1) : I liked some of the flirtatious interplay between Hank and Jan at first, but I’m starting to think that Hank has multiple personalities.

Hmmm…should I take a plane to Washington? Nah….I’ll fly on an ant at a speed of three hours per mile. They don’t call me a genius for nothing.

The Organization of American States?

Here Jan. You be the size capsule drug mule. Better you than me.

Quck! Let’s yell about size capsules and throw them to each other before disappearing. South Americans are stupid. They won’t figure it out.

“It is almost the hour of three.” I don’t care what country you’re from. Nobody talks like that. (at least not when translated to English)

If they’re not for connecting the ants, why does Giant Man have antennae? For the fashion sense?

Shouldn’t those ants speak Spanish?

It’s really getting on my nerves that no artists seem to be able to keep Giant Man in the correct scale. In order to ski on those boats like in the pic, he’d have to be 20-25 ft. tall, not 12. His relative size fluctuates from panel to panel.

As a nameless citizen on the street I personally recognize your handwriting, El Toro, and I know that….aw screw it. It’s too dumb to even make fun of.

Tales to Astonish #55a (v1) : Human Top is hands down the worst recurring villain of all the books. Now he can spin so fast that he’s “virtually invisible” and a guard can look right at him and not see him?

Oh my god, that “special rig” on the side of the building is even worse than the catapult.

So he’s twelve feet tall but he can sit on top of a bus like it’s an ottoman?

Wait….his cellophane air chariot?

Now he spins on his head? Are the Tales to Astonish stories getting worse?

Tales of Suspense #53a (v1) : Brilliant comment fragsel.


What’s up with that cover? Iron Man looks like a kid in a cheap Halloween mask.

No way is Tony a genius or a ladies man if he falls for Natasha like that. Nothing at all realistic about those spy games no matter how much Stan brags about realism.

“I’ll let the Black Widow go…after all, she IS just a woman.”

Strange Tales #120a (v1) : Thank you Jeebus, they finally got rid of Iceman’s ridiculous boots.

Torch is still a cocky little snot, but I actually didn’t hate him this time.

Wouldn’t you know it…finally don’t hate a Torch story and the Strange story is hokey.

Journey into Mystery #104a (v1) : “But one there is who is the wisest…” Something tells me that Stan doesn’t have a degree in English.

“Loki, I am sorely troubled! My favored son, Thor, the one closest to my heart…” It’s no wonder Loki hated Thor and was jealous. Good parenting there Papa Odin.

Let's put Loki in charge of Asgard. The All Father is a moron.

Odin moved the entire human race to another dimension? Isn’t that a little much? And again they’re all white, even though one of the ones up front is wearing a turban.

I like the idea of biographies of the Asgardians in the back up stories.

One of the better Thor stories thus far.

Daredevil #2 (v1) : Well, true to form, it didn’t even take two full issues for Karen Page to state that she wants to marry Matt Murdock.

Okay, I can buy Daredevil being able to walk around, fight, whatever, but flying a space ship and then landing it back on Earth? Don’t think so.

How sad is it that when I saw Daredevil exit the space ship to see a horse drawn carriage, I immediate thought that he had gone back in time? Stranger things have happened in the Marvel Age of Comics.

Oh Stan…breaking leather straps with a cane?

“It’s one chance in a million, but I’ve got to take it.” Those are perfect odds when Stan’s writing.

Just when I was thinking that I’m enjoying the Daredevil books so far and Stan is, for the most part, keeping things *slightly* plausible other than the whole space ship thing, I turned the page and saw this: Daredevil is flying across the city hanging from the bottom of a helicopter that he randomly picked up. “I’m familiar with the schedule of these sight-seeing whirly birds! Exactly two minutes and fifty seconds after takeoff it should be directly over the Baxter Building! I’m keeping time by listening to my own pulse beat!! I can’t afford to be one second off.” Without exaggeration, there are at least seventeen things wrong with this. Haha

“Made it! In exactly one half second I’ll do a complete somersault, breaking my fall and enabling me to land gently on my feet.” Meanwhile, four and a half seconds later as Daredevil lies on the floor with a broken hip….”Dammit, when will I learn to do the somersault first and then talk to myself about it?”

Despite Stan needing to shut up, I still liked this issue. I hope it gets a little better, because Daredevil was one of the titles I was looking forward to.

Amazing Spider-Man #13 (v1) : There’s only one possible explanation—I have a split personality.

I’ve always liked Mysterio, but that is a pretty ridiculous costume.

“I might as well tell you the whole story…” A classic villain staple.

How did Mysterio know that Spidey even has a spider-sense?

Amazing Spider-Man #48 (v1) : Seems like the "under the weather" plot device is being used again a little too soon. Otherwise, a solid issue and I love that cover--Had I been a comic reader in '67, I would have definitely thrown down 12 cents for this one.

It was shockingly bad, just comes out of nowhere. Why can't Thor be sent to limbo? Could Don Blake?

Daredevil #1 (v1) : Talk about a bait and switch cover. Uncle Stan should have been a used car salesman. One issue in, and Bill Everett is the best artist up to this point in the Marvel Age of Comics. Really enjoyed this issue. Good telling of the origin. Even Stan’s writing seemed to be better than usual.

Fantastic Four #26 (v1) : Even though Stan committed one of my ultimate pet peeves by using “your” in place of “you’re,” this was still maybe my favorite FF story thus far. It probably doesn’t hurt that there were so many guest appearances by characters that I much prefer to the FF. The over the top, schmaltzy heroism by Reed and Johnny was almost too much to stomach, but the overall effect was successful. It’s a good thing that all Sixties hospitals stocked asbestos pajamas.

Fantastic Four #25 (v1) : Gotta say that I'm enjoying the fight so far. If only someone had limited Stan's word count. I've been pulling for the Hulk this whole time, but I've got to admire the heroism and humility that Thing shows at the end.

Thor #158 (v1) : I kinda hate "clip show" issues. It just strikes me a lazy....

Running behnd on your deadline? then write 2 pages, one for intro and one to close out the issue, and just put in previously written/drawn stuff in the middle. No art update or nothin. Still at full price you will notice.

Tales to Astonish #53a (v1) : For some reason I actually kind of do. I think it's because he looks so radically different from all the other heroes and villains. It kind of reminds me of one of those ghillie suits that snipers wear. I'm betting that it's because I vividly remember seeing him in an old issue of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe as a kid and finding him interesting.

Fantastic Four #33 (v1) : I used to hate Namor. Before The Order his stories didn't make sense to me: he's alone, he's not alone, he's alone, he's not alone. He's bad. He's good. He's bad. He's good. Really confusing. I never new what to expect next. But now I can say it all makes sense. Me like it!!!!

Fantastic Four #31 (v1) : With the exception of FF #1 (v1 & v2) whenever I see Mole Man I know it will be shitty, and this issue is no exception. And it appears Torch is aware of this situation, because he asked the same question I did: "Why didn't she use her invisible force field against him"? Yea, why didn't she? Reed as always have the answer: "WIth his uncanny scientific powers, he would have easily overcome it". Poor Sue. If only she knew about it when she kicked Mole Man's ass in issue 22. And Doom's in 23. And in Annual 2. Poor Sue and her scientificaly useless powers...

Strange Tales #119a (v1) : Mama said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all, so no comment on the Torch story.

Am I missing something, or is Mormammu a character? This is the second time that Strange has said this name.

Tales to Astonish #53a (v1) : This issue really got on my nerves more than most for some reason.

Of course doing a flip will slow the descent of a falling man….if you went to the same school of physics as Wiley Coyote.

12 ft. tall and only 360 lb.? He’d be skin and bones.

Look in the phone book for a Giant Man and Wasp fanclub? Why didn’t I think of that?

“My jets propel me in short spurts…but I have to use my ingenuity in order to stop! Which is what I’m doing now!” I wonder how many kids during the Marvel Age of Comics developed psychological issues from talking to themselves.

Did Ant Man just yell on a crowded sidewalk that Porcupine was “getting away with Jan?” For a supposed super genius, he doesn’t seem to get this whole secret identity thing.

“You will remain a prisoner here until you reveal Giant Man’s true identity to me.” But I’m not worried about removing your mask, because what use could discovering the identity of his partner be to me? You’re an evil mastermind there Porky.

Why would Porky need that elaborate plan to find Giant Man? He was just at his loft, with a bunch of freaking kids, earlier in the issue.

Hank: “Jan, fly to safety!” Jan: “Don’t count on me for help!” Obviously girls are totally useless to comic book fans. What would we ever need them for? ;)

Hank couldn’t shrink because it would shatter his ankle, and then a few pages later he runs on his fractured ankle, shrinks, and then enlarges with no damage.

I almost gave this issue two stars just because I like Porcupine, but I couldn’t do it.

Tales of Suspense #50a (v1) : I like the Mandarin and think he's a great villain, but he has the most pointless mask ever (well, other than Scarlet Witch). So glad he eventually loses it. And the giant “M” on his chest…ugh.

“Built in slide rule calculator?” haha

I doubt even a Quinjet could fly from China to NY in a couple hours.

Journey into Mystery #102a (v1) : The “highly sophisticated” police robot wears a police hat? Haha

All of that “an immortal may never break his oath” BS was a bit hard to swallow.

“I have been gently rubbing my hammer head.” I need to grow up. Haha

Pretty pathetic story.

Not much to say about this story but "ugh." It was funny seeing Thor throw a temper tantrum though. Verily.

Amazing Spider-Man #10 (v1) : Not a fan of this “Flash with a heart” angle.

Aunt May gets out of the hospital and immediately goes on vacation?

Good ol’ Aunt May being concerned about safe sex and telling Peter to wear rubbers. Haha

Big Man and Fancy Dan. What “great” names.

Easily the most lackluster Spidey story yet. Pretty disappointing. Very forgettable villains for the first time.

Strange Tales #118a (v1) : “I’ll cover my beard with actor’s putty made from melted crayons.” Good idea. No one will notice that. No wonder they call you the Wizard.

It sure seems like a lot of people “can imitate almost anything the real Torch can do.”

“If my voice sounds strange to you, Reed, don’t worry about it.” That sounds like an eight year old getting ready to tell a lie.

That’s a smart move Johnny….keep trying to flame on to find out how much oxygen is in the enclosed room where you’re trapped.

At least Stan’s starting to acknowledge and come up with “brilliant” ways to explain why Torch’s heat isn’t burning those around him. Must have been getting fan mail criticizing him.

So, the stratosphere doesn’t have enough oxygen for Torch to flame on, but there’s plenty for the Wizard to breathe and talk to himself?

“In the name of the mighty ‘Mormammu…’” There’s always some ridiculous editor’s note to remind the reader for the seventeenth time that Sue Storm is actually the Invisible Girl or some such nonsense, but there are misspelled words everywhere, and this is the fourth or fifth time that a character has been given the wrong name…Peter Palmer, Anthony Blake, Bob Banner, etc. I’m reading scans of the original comics. I wonder if those reading reprints are seeing the same errors?

Would have been interesting to see Strange written by someone who had some fleeting knowledge of the occult.
