Mystic Comics #5b (v1) : Super...Slave? Weird. I like the human figure in the storm underneath the name, though.

Mystic Comics #5a (v1) : First appearance by Native Americans in the order, I think. They're used exclusively as a plot device for a white exceptionalism story, sure. But, still, it's nice to see some variety. Usually, it's a white guy becoming exceptional thanks to vaguely Asian mysticism, not vaguely Native American mysticism.

There's some unique, interesting panel work in this one from Gabriele. Otherwise, it's a pretty generic Golden Age story.

Captain America Comics #1g : So before Kamandi, Kirby had...Tuk, the Caveboy. I admit I've never read Kamandi, but this strikes me as fairly similar.

Captain America Comics #1f : Hurricane is the son of Thor and the last descendent of the greek gods?
Sorry, Jack. But, that dog won't hunt.

They're in Coast City, eh? I wonder if any colorful lanterns might show up.

"Facts are facts, even if they are insane." is one of my favorite lines so far.

Tomb of Dracula #63 (v1) : Marvel's Satan is a mess... its so confusing who is who and who is what and yada... that being said. I enjoyed this issue.

Ice Says:
Captain America Comics #1e : I was about to say this story's possible even more important than Cap's debut because it's the first major super villain appearance...then they pulled the Scooby Doo thing.

I'm surprised "Skull" took out Cap so handily in their altercation at General Manor's. I guess Cap's still getting used to things.

Ice Says:
Captain America Comics #1b : Hmm. That's a pretty weird plan, having a little guy draw attention to your dastardly plans.

This one gets points for a pretty good fight scene and a strange fortune teller story idea, but I'm definitely knocking a star off my rating for that ridiculous evil plan to...tell people you're going to blow up their bridges.

Ice Says:
Captain America Comics #1a : The most iconic cover and most important issue (barring MAYBE Marvel Comics #1) so far in the order! This is Simon and Kirby's most major addition to the Marvel Universe, at least until Kirby gives us Fantastic Four #1.

This is an important book, of course, but it's also a great example of Kirby's strengths as an artist. I love the sinister, secretive look from the old shopkeeper. And, Cap's very first action sequence is a great 1-2 punch action scene. He gives you more dramatic action in just a couple panels than you get from the majority of Golden Age stories in 8 pages.

And, I'm amazed by how much Cap's origin story has stayed the same over the years. If it ain't broke, don't retconn it.

Iron Fist #3 (v1) : I simply have to substract one star because of Iron Fist's new "radioactive vision". WTF ?

Urgat Says:
Thor #153 (v1) : For me this Issue was Rollercoaster-Ride...up and down...liking it and not digging it at all... good parts, bad parts...

Bad Things:
- When did Loki get his Enchantment-Powers back (maybe I did miss this one, enlighten me if so)
- When did Loki get Karnilla's powers
- Since when is Loki worthy of lifting the hammer (even with the powers of another evil Queen...
- The whole Operation sequence was just dumb...in now way could Dr. Blake keep his concentration and calm hands with all the commotion and danger behind him, and 10 secs later....finished...roll her out...sorry but no

Good to great parts:
- The little Ulik sequence, nice cliffhanger, curious to see him again, hopefully soon
- The second Thor-Loki battle
- the little glimpse on a maybe upcoming Balder-Karnilla story

Ice Says:
Marvel Mystery Comics #16e : In this little slice of the Order, Kirby and Simon's Vision is absolutely the number one, go-to series for the crazy weirdness you can only really get from comic books. One month, it's werewolves, then we get dinosaurs later. It's great!

Still, the ending disappointed me. Maybe I'm a squishy 2017 liberal, but I don't find brutally murdering animals for doing animal things very heroic. ...Plus, I'd like to believe Marvel's little Jurrassic Park could have continued off in the corner of the MU somewhere.

Tales to Astonish #30e (v1) : So, we get introduced to Quogg on one Panel...just ONE... (because let's be honest, before the "reveal" there was a lonely hut we all saw...)

But i have to admit, I think I'll remember him because of the cheesiness...in some (or many) years I will say:
"Hey, I know that monster, it was that lonely hut! "

for that alone...2*

Ice Says:
The Human Torch #3b : Holy halibut! So, this is the first appearance of Franklin Roosevelt. Does that make this the first appearance of a US President in the Order? I wonder if any post-FDR Presidents *don't* show up at some point between this story and 2017.

There's a really cool (unintentional?) hype build up for the debut of Captain America in the Order. The Extended Order is flipping through these early stories and you keep seeing Cap advertisements pop up. It's kind of exciting!

Tomb of Dracula #61 (v1) : Another good Drac issue... I just wish he wasnt always seen as the villain.. this issue in particular he did nothing villainous, in fact I would say what he was doing was more the hero side of things

Marvel Team-Up #10 (v1) : 2 stars for Spidey having to carry the load as usual when working with the Human Torch!!!

Title - Oh, there's a bomb alright in this issue, but not a time one...

Flashback - I do like the idea of Zarrko's time missiles, but I think they would be better as localized time spheres instead!

Does A Body Good - Good to see Peter following Aunt May's wishes and still drinking milk to grow up to be big and strong!!

Translator - If anyone speaks Japanese here on the site, can they tell if the samurai is speaking gibberish or not??

Sticky Situation - Wasn't Spidey running out of web fluid last issue??!!

Flame Off - Like everyone has already said, Johnny really outdoes himself this time! Leaving poor Spidey alone in Greece who has to get to a HIDDEN city somewhere in the Himalayas!! And I think the only Inhuman that Spidey has ever met is Medusa!!!

'Nuff Said - "Take your hand from that buckle, invader, before I--"-Zarrko the Torrid Tomorrow Man

Thor #205 (v1) : Do you think Conway was doing some meta commentary on Jack Kirby's move to D.C. With the young gods?

The New Gods were first conceived as replacements for the Asgardians after Ragnarok, he did leave in a huff, with good reason, but also shooting himself in the foot. If anyone is the capricious Allfather of the Marvel Universe it is the King

If that is true the now playing is "Freed Pig" Sebadoh for reasons you might have to google

Otherwise now playing "Mad World" Tears for Fears

Marvel Comics Presents #24c (v1) : -This was actually a decent concept for a story that was poorly handled, and don't get me started on Shamrock's brain dead "Luck o' the Irish" power. Jeez...

Thor #199 (v1) : This whole arc is totally worth the time to read. Even with glaring problems it is still a total hoot.

Disappointed by HIM being some crystal monster, profound lack of imagination there
