Captain Marvel #17 (v1) : I don't know who was higher: Roy Thomas when he wrote the text at the bottom of page 15, or Gil Kane when he drew the dogs face on page 3.

Spider-Man #8 : McFarlane is getting marginally better at writing, but his version of Peter Parker's internal monologue sounds like a stuck-up, resentful teenager far more than the insecure but good-hearted dork that other writers tend to stick to. Or maybe it's just that McFarlane relies more on long internal monologue with various characters -- all these poster-style pages with "wicked awesome action pose!!" and nothing else actually happening require some kind of writing, I guess? -- so his own persona bleeds through quite a lot.

Alpha Flight #8b (v1) : I think it's funny how many Canadian landmarks are featured in Alpha Flight and how many cities in Canada are both named and characterized (like Montreal in this little arc). In 20 years of the Order, it seems like there are only a hanfyl of issues i. US cities other than NYC.

I also love that Byrne took the time to draw the street as cobblestone. I find that really charming.

Captain America #173 (v1) : Wow, the Secret Empire is happy to show all its tricks to two random guys that one agent just met earlier that day. I thought they'd be a bit more exclusive.

Captain America #171 (v1) : Cap overheard the sanitation crew saying they were actually there to discredit Cap further and turn him back into the cops, but that's not what lets him know they're working with the Committee. Oh no. They have his shield, so they must be bad.

Alpha Flight #7a (v1) : Multiple slow burning plot threads, all of which work. Byrne is a man on top of his game here.

ViolentPhlegm Says:
Ka-Zar #20 (v2) : I'm not sure what sales were like, but they were publishing glowing praise in the lettercol in the months leading up to the cancellation. In this issue, they announced the cancellation but said it was because of a major upcoming project and included the hint that Marvel wasn't done with jungle comics. That project turned out to be Tarzan. I'm not sure if dropping Ka-Zar was a condition of the deal or Marvel just didn't want to jeopardize the new project by continuing publication of essentially the same character.

Captain Marvel #16 (v1) : I'll give this a somewhat reluctant 2 stars, for the debut of the classic costume, and the resolution to a major plot point.

Otherwise, it was a garbled mess.

Deathlok #1 (v2) : This felt more like an epilogue to the limited series than a first issue of the new on-going series.

Iron Man #61 (v1) : Oh, snap, Masked Marauder. You're the second-best c-list Daredevil villain holding a city to ransom for a billion bucks this month. You're second-best to Stilt-Man, Masked Marauder. You hear me? Stilt-Man! (See DD #102, a better comic than this in every respect.)

CrazyforRAMU Says:
Captain America #164 (v1) : It's becoming clear that the '73 Bullpen is sick of superheroes. They yearn to tell horror, fantasy, and sci-fi stories - and also, most grossly, to obsess over jailbait girls. (This issue was published the same month as the Man-Thing story that put underage Jennifer Kale in a super-skimpy sorceress bikini.)

I think that's the point of Cap's snap psychoanalysis here - Nightshade is a teenaged girl trying on the role of sexpot villainess, and the results are disturbing in many ways.

Alan Weiss is a talented anatomist. His Cap looks terrific below the neck, and though Nightshade in a leather bikini feels conceptually filthy, she is drawn with skill. The picked-at-random facial expressions are less thrilling. Are Cap and Falcon fighting through alternating waves of constipation and diarrhea, or what? The werewolves are also rendered with embarrassing generic-ness for the central role they play in the plot.

There's a lot of good ideas here, but I think what was missing was the lash of a better editor. Somebody really should have grabbed this before it was inked and called out things like Nick Fury cosplaying Thundarr the Barbarian for no reason, the repeated mismatches between drawn faces and written feelings, and the accidental word-balloon-switcharoo on page 5.

GroovyGolem Says:
Fantastic Four #88 (v1) : I always like seeing Kirby draw the FF in their civilian clothing. The Thing always looks particularly snazzy.

I also like those issues where we see Reed sort of taking a moment to put himself back together after an extreme stretching effort. For the most part he usually just snaps back into shape, but every now and then we see him sprawled out on the floor, limbs everywhere, as he tries to pull himself back into shape.

And just how long have the team been gone at the beginning of this issue? Sue says of Franklin "he still remembers us!"
