Tales of Suspense #48 (v1) : Like Ditko's armor, but Mr. Doll and the Pepper trick were lame.

Sgt. Fury and his Howling... : Have still counts for predating Black Panther, though, right?
Yeah, no, I know, but....

All-Winners Comics #4e (v1) : Great Namor story here. Good action panels.

Incredible Hulk #392 (v1) : Kind of impressive that the dialogue between Hulk and Havok here includes both jokes about how convoluted Galactic Storm was and references to the real-life Desert Storm "regime change" policies that Galactic Storm was named after, but never referenced thematically. Most writers stick to either using references for in-jokes or real-world issues, not both!

Incredible Hulk #390 (v1) : Peter David: tries to offset 90s joke about the Hulk shooting giant guns by also including bunny slippers. Surprisingly, a little bit effective.

Sgt. Fury and his Howling... : Hmm...I'm afraid I'm out of my league to judge a war comic. I'm a GI JOE fan but I knew it was a fantasy comic and never viewed it as war.

The diversity of the Commandoes is cool, prolly based on the people either Stan or Jack knew in the War.
I know Stan is not a historian or realist, so I have no expectations for that but King Kirby knows more which is why I was surprised about the air grenade and far fetched plot.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #18b : Surprisingly good team up of Iron Fist and the Sons. Snake Eyes wasn't bad, but his plan was quite unoriginal. I wonder if it was Jonas Harrow who fixed him up; we've heard that name a couple of times in Spider-Man and he's the guy responsible for Hammerhead. It would make sense.

Seems to be a breach in continuity here. I'd think the Sons would still be in shock over their involvement in the prison riot over the past couple of issues, with Lin Sun and Bob possibly at odds with each other over Lotus, and Abe more than pissed at the establishment over the racially motivated mistreatment of the prisoners. Hope this is a thread that's picked up somewhere; there's more than enough to affect the Sons for a long time to come.

2 stars. Not bad, but it just didn't seem like it belonged.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #18a : Well, that arc was worth about as much as the Golden Dragon itself; basically, nothing. I wasn't too sure where this was going to end up, but this really landed with a dull thud. And it was set up beautifully, too.

1 star, for not properly finishing what was started.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #17b : Easily the highest body count of any story in the Order up to this point. I can see Halliday and Byrd regretting the decisions to put the Sons in this situation. I don't know if anyone else could've done this better, but....yeah, ugly.

And I got the impression that Lin Sun isn't so much as stealing Lotus away from Bob, as Bob basically gave Lotus a reason to leave him. He was making jokes when Jackson was gunned down; that was a d**k move on his part. "Just like in Hollywood" indeed, Bob; couples break up, too.

2 stars. This story had a surprising amount of elements to change the trajectory of the Sons of the Tiger series; too bad the premise and execution of this arc was all wrong. Yet somehow, that's been par for the course for them.

X-Men #49b (v1) : just ROFL Groovy ...nice one XD

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #17a : I almost wanted to say that this was filler in a way. Having Shang-Chi run that cloister through the dragon (or his own mind, or both simultaneously) struck me as a way to lay out to the reader who all the players for the dragon are; probably a handy device at the time since readers had to wait a month for the next part, unlike us readers of the Order. Taken at that level, this actually wasn't bad. But, it did take a little steam out of the arc.

2 stars. Still a good arc, but it's time to end it.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #16b : I'm a little torn on this one. It did make for a better Sons story than most of what we've seen so far, but I agree that they probably shouldn't have been there in the first place. I can also see it now; Halliday has some connection with Byrd, and the two probably got to talking one day: "I just heard some reports about this one prison...." "Hey, before you send any feds or SHIELD in, I've gotta friend who helped me solve a murder a few weeks ago; let me call him and his buddies and see if they can turn something up first. Subtle approach might work better in this case." "Okay, you're on!"

2 stars. It didn't work, Byrd. Sorry....

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #16a : I think this is starting to get a little long in the tooth as well. At least the excessive amount of elements of the story are starting to come together in a coherent manner, but I'm left thinking that this arc should probably be wrapped up next issue, instead of taking two issues. We'll see. 3 stars.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #14b : I'm not sure I got the point of this. Death in heaven? What a mess.

1 star. Abe's solo story was the only worthwhile one here. Too bad; wasted opportunity with the others.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #14a : I think the story arc's been pretty good so far. There's been quite a bit of misdirection and intrigue yet I've been able to follow it pretty well. And I wonder how Denis is wrapped up in this, assuming that really is Blackjack holding a gun to everyone. And a pretty well-done sequence to escape that trap, even if it took nearly the entire length of the story to do it.

3 stars. As far as we know, the Shadow Thief probably has yet another decoy statue.

Captain America #239 (v1) : That's a pretty bleak ending there. I liked it.

Cap looks naked without his shield.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #13b : Either Curtis was extremely trusting, or extremely lucky being caught on that car. His scenes were poorly done, which is a shame, because this story wasted an excellent setup. After the first 2-3 pages I was puzzled by the low rating. Now I know.

2 stars. I like the concept of solo Sons; too bad Bob's couldn't be as good as Abe's last issue.

Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #13a : Excellent cliffhanger. Seems lively so far; I doubt I'd be saying that if dear old dad was involved. 3 stars.

Iron Man #13 (v1) : I would have given this one 4 stars, but the roller skates brought it down one. But these past few issues have been some of the best yet for the series.

Thor #130a (v1) :
  • That's my line – "Love! An emotion fit for only fools... and weaklings!" (Tana Nile)

  • Ouch! This is definitely NOT the Cerberus I was expecting! Little disappointed, here! Kirby missed a great opportunity to design a very cool creature. Also, as kungfufan pointed out, I would have preferred demons and monsters instead of machines. The Greek Underworld had so much potential in terms of characters and landscape. It's too bad they were totally ignored.

  • On the same note, I don't mind having mythologies of different origins intertwine. But since the beginning of this arc, I'm truly bothered with the names for the Gods of Olympus. Stan got most of them right, except for the two most important in this story. Hercules and Pluto should have been called Heracles and Hades. Or call all the other gods by their Latin name.

  • OK. I'm still intrigued by Tana Nile, whatever she is.

  • Thor is such a party pooper!

  • This was a great mini-arc. The outcome was unexpected and surprisingly good. And one more star for Thor and Hercules being BFFs again. 4 stars

X-Men #53a (v1) : On "Credit Due":

I think so too... I first thought Kirby was drawing this one because Blastaar's face looked so much like the faces Kirby draws...
Thankfully he BW-S also takes some influences from steranko as you mentioned... I don't want another Kirby...

X-Men #53a (v1) : I don't think that he is annoying, imo He could be a really powerful and good villian if pitted against the right Heroes...he is just seriously misused in this Issue.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #12b : Popular culture wasn't very kind to oil companies as the country was coming out of the mid-70s energy crisis (or was becoming desensitized to it). I wonder if Caxon Oil is an offshoot of Roxxon; there's not enough room for two unscrupulous oil companies in the US, is there?

I agree this was pretty good. Sons of the Tiger together can get pretty cheesy, and I'm not sure any of the three are strong enough to carry a solo series, but a one-shot with Abe here was an excellent change of pace. It didn't have much in the way of martial arts action, but who cares? Still a good story overall.

3 stars.

Russ Says:
Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #12a : At least it's an attempt to do something different with Shang-Chi. Personally, I think there'd be worse things to do with him than trying him out in an espionage-type story arc. And this doesn't look half-bad so far in spite of some convolution and misdirection.

3 stars. Sometimes they get really daring with drawing some of the outfits on women in these black-and-white mags. Shareen has some underboob going there, as if one good sneeze and that top pops right off.

Iron Man #30 (v1) : A mighty kaiju robot defeated by its own reflected light.

So, shouldn't the mirror be concave as opposed to convex as drawn (pg 20 pn 1) to be able to reflect back the light as opposed to disperse it?

Fantastic Four #21 (v1) : Comments complaining about how racism is handled have no perspective.

Regarding the Order: Sgt Fury and His Howling Commandos should be in this 1960s Order and The Invaders should be in the 1970s Order.

As it stands now, we have to read about Nick Fury in Early Marvel, but that also has a bunch of Roy Thomas retcons with The Invaders. I may have to go back now and try to match up Howling to this. :-(

Oh the issue? One of the best FF so far.

Strange Tales #115a (v1) : Hmm...feels like this comes right after FF 20 since Thing and Sue are writing up the report.

Love how Johnny RAGES at Reed.

I liked the battle and Johnny's characterization.

Amazing Spider-Man #7 (v1) : Petah da Playah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man, wish he had focused on Betty only.

Not a fan of the Vulture (he looks ancient and just flies) but the dialogue and art were funny and the JJJ scenes were amazing.

4 stars, which appears to be the default setting for any Amazing Spider-Man.

Avengers #2 (v1) : Kinda weird how the heroes act differently when they team up in the Avengers compared to their own mags. Wasp has a super crush on Pym but immediately switched to Thor..Thor wished death upon The Space Phantom...Iron Man has a short fuse..

Anyway, I really don't like Space Phantom's look or powers, and the art made it confusing to read.

Surprised so many people liked this, no doubt because it is "Avengers #2". If it was #12 it would be an easy 1 or 2 stars.

Tales to Astonish #49 (v1) : Grant Morrison would have had the characters REALLY be erased from continuity.

The Wasp is the better superhero. Pym does not appreciate what she did for him.

As far as the controversial and historical notion to have Ant-Man become Giant Man, yeah it probably was to inject something new and make Pym seem more powerful.

Inconsistent powers + art + plot though.

Tales of Suspense #47 (v1) : The super-villains were always right: Tony Stark is a capitalistic lap dog who takes orders from corrupt senators! Iron Man is a corporate stooge! lol

I was rolling at the end when Tony Stark ordered Pepper for some DICtation to catch up on in his office.

A $10,000 custom sports car: thanks government created inflation.

Anyway, I like Tales of Suspense now that it focuses on Tony's business, has Happy and Pepper, and custom made supervillains (Crimson Dynamo + Melter), although Melter should have been a one-shot villain.
