Amazing Adventures #14 (v2) : Bad start, worse ending, and more Mission Impossible masks. There were some high points interspersed, but overall this was pretty bad.

Adventure into Fear #13 : Man-Thing is kind of like then anti - hulk, in that he's dimly aware of having been something else, and yearns to have that back, where Hulk is more aware of Banner, but hates him. This lead to a poignant and different scene with the mirrors that I quite enjoyed

Amazing Spider-Man #152 (v1) : Yeah, Shocker, you tend to get defeated a little easy; time for a new line of work. Oh, speaking of which, Linda Lovelace on line 2, and she says she has a few ideas!

The last 2-3 years of Spider-Man have been pretty dark; it's cool to go back to the more lighthearted jovial tone of the earlier days while keeping the current storylines rolling. The interaction with JJJ was priceless; we can only hope he throws less parties in the future! If so, the other "priceless" artifacts in his place will breathe a sigh of relief.

3 stars. It does seem like a fresh start the last couple of issues. And Len Wein is another less-than-fantastic writer who seems to have Spidey pretty well figured out, at least so far.

Amazing Spider-Man #151 (v1) : A new era for Spidey! Starting it off by dumping a body. You never would've seen him do this in a Silver Age Spidey book, that's for sure!

Pretty entertaining party thrown by JJJ, if you weren't actually invited. JJJ was being classic JJJ: rolling out the coke instead of the liquor, pushing the tuna fish over the caviar, announcing Betty and Ned's transfer to Paris for a busman's holiday, and of course, losing power in the middle of one of his long-winded speeches. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

So, Harry's back! Something tells me that cast-in-plaster smile on his face means he's probably not as cured as we're being led to believe.Between him and Aunt May, those two could send the Cryptkeeper fleeing in the night in terror!

3 stars. Len Wein takes over the Web-Head, and he chooses the Shocker as his first opponent. At least he didn't choose to revive the Kangaroo.

Journey into Mystery #85 (v1) : Interesting looking Rainbow Bridge with no red and yellow between green and blue.

Marvel Mystery Comics #20e : Everything was quite cool and entertaining, but then They introduced the radio controlled gun in the telephone, that literally killed my reading pleasure. Shame!!!

X-Men/Alpha Flight #1 (v1) : CC and JB have such similar styles. I'm curious about what distinguishes them so much for you.

X-Men/Alpha Flight #1 (v1) : This only felt drawn out because it was a double-length issue
Think of it as two distinct parts of a 4-part mini-series. There is even a break-point halfway through where you can tell they were planning to end the issue.

jwerth Says:
Captain America #237 (v1) : The first half of this issue was very good, including the Sharon Carter stuff. Is this the first time in the Order that a hero has been based out of Brooklyn?

But the Holocaust flashback was really frustrating. First, it made no sense in the story - why are we spending half the issue on a long flashback for a minor character? Second, I appreciate that Claremont and McKenzie were trying to portray a sympathetic Holocaust survivor, but would it have been so hard to tell a story that was historically plausible, instead of grabbing some famous phrases (Kristallnacht! Death camps! Train cars!) and shoving them together? No one was arrested on Kristallnacht and sent to death camps, the Nazis didnt start using death camps until several years later, in 41/42. And its really unlikely that a little girl would be arrested on Kristallnacht, 30,000 Jewish men were arrested that night and sent to concentration camps (including my grandfather), but not kids and families (at that point). I probably sound nit-picky, but I think its respectful to try to get the basic details right. The truth is terrible enough, without sensationalizing or oversimplifying the history.

Captain Britain #7 (v2) : I'm enjoying the hell out of this run, bbut I suspect that's due in large part to the issues being only 12 pages. No time for any tedium.

Captain Britain #6 (v2) : Yeah . . . Psylocke is certainly no D.I.D., even before also being a ninja.

Thor #129a (v1) :
  • That's my line "Quick! Tear off a piece of his cape... for memento!" "One of his hair! That's all I want... Just one!" (Disrespectful crowd) Welcome back to Midgard, Thor!

  • That's my line too "A costume party... on this floor... and I wasn't invited!" (Jane's disappointed neighbor)

  • I really liked that fun casual scene with the no-nonsense cabbie. Too bad the poor lad did not get paid, but he did offer to help, didn't he?

  • Great giant panel on page 4. I guess Olympus is to Asgard, what Hercules is to Thor: much more fun!!

  • Just as she jumps in the arms of the next immortal she sees, Jane is willing to share an apartment with the first weirdo that comes. No judgment whatsoever!

  • I like how Ares is wearing a mohawk similar to his traditional helmet.

  • Well, the plot towards Thor fighting for Hercules is far from being subtle.

  • I love how Kirby draws horses. They are simply magnificent!

  • Pretty solid issue again, even if the outcome was too obvious. Nice sub-plot with that creepy Tana Nile. I'm looking forward to next issue. 4 stars.

wcharrison355 Says:
Iron Man #159 (v1) : This book's art just dropped off a cliff after Layton and JR JR left, and didn't improve until Layton came back. This fill-in, however, was a rare bright spot with Paul Smith. His Iron Man is shiny like Layton's and has the 80s look a la Golden, Rogers, Kevin Maguire, that's a little cartoony but slick and stylish. Could have done without that last panel that shows Iron Man's armor somehow smiling, but still a good ish.

Black Goliath #5 : Just found an old Marvel correspondence rescued from a landfill somewhere on the east coast; coincidentally, it's related to this issue. Here's an excerpt....

Hey Chris? Bad news, old buddy. We're cancelling the Black Goliath book. We had to do it, and it's your fault. See, in issue #4, you had Bill lose to the Stilt-Man. So now, nobody believes Black Goliath is a viable superhero anymore, and they stopped buying the book. In order to tie up this plot thread, we're probably going to have to send the Werewolf in since it's all taking place in L.A., and he can't really beat anybody either. Hopefully Wolfman can figure it out because we don't wanna cancel that book, too. Well, at least this will give you a chance to concentrate on the X-Men and Iron Fist, if nothing else.

The final issue ended up better than I thought, given the plot. I liked Derath, and it sucked when he was killed senselessly. The circumstances behind it did make it seem like Goliath was incredibly self-centered, but who knew there was that level of danger? Ugh, I like Claremont, but I think that entire scene came off too awkward to work.

2 stars, and a final grade of B- for the series. It had the elements to succeed long term, and like @Drax said the plug was pulled on it too early. There's not much I'd change here, but Bill was a character making a serious stab at superheroing and his ineptitude, while charming, would've worn thin after awhile. It's all a shame; I would've liked to see what else Claremont could've done with this title.

Russ Says:
Black Goliath #4 : Bill, you're a cool dude and I have respect for you, but it took you awhile to subdue three bank robbers, and you just lost to a Daredevil villain. I don't think the superhero biz is your thing. You've got one super-villain victory under your belt, I'll give you that, but since the start of this title you've gotten your butt kicked most of the time, and your opponents are making it look easy. You've got heart, and a good supporting cast, but that won't win you many fights.

2 stars. Geez, Stilt-Man finally wins one fight and he develops a God complex. What's next, stealing the ultimate nullifier from Galactus?

Iron Fist #10 (v1) : Okay how the heck did Fisty punch the weapon that was choking him hard enough to break it without crushing his own windpipe!
Knight and Wing were made to look way too weak in this arc. They don't even get a punch in, they get one shotted and are out... twice for Misty.

Sensational Spider-Man #28 (v2) : I don't usually like Aguirre-Sacasa, but this one was a much better effort. Sometimes these events can really elevate a writer's abilities.

duncanm Says:
Iron Fist #9 (v1) : Was going really good until the stupidity at the end. The cops know that this gang is going around attacking people, and Iron Fist in particular, so they're going to call him a killer for defending himself. Not to mention, it's not like anyone checked to see if he was alive before calling him a killer.
And yeah, superhero forgets he has a superpower until the last minute to add tension is so dumb.

Fantastic Four #20 (v1) : Read the letter's page: at least 2 famous people wrote in, proving Stan did not write all the letters himself lol

I had loved Molecule Man since Secret Wars I, II, and III (yes, you will see that issue one day). Good origin, but bad execution here. Still gave it 3 because he really caused havoc here and the Watcher had to interfere.

Mystic Comics #3i (v1) : Finally, a decent costume! I love the scene of Dynamic Man swinging the bad guy at other bad guys! I'm sure Lamont Lewis is okay with Dynamic Man destroying his house to get the bad guys!

New Avengers #22 (v1) : This is hands down my favorite moment in Civil War. Luke Cage gives all the best reasons for being anti-Registration. The erosion of civil liberties and the actions of S.H.I.E.L.D. are just plain wrong here. There really should have been a good Samaritan clause as Peter suggested when he was in front of Congress. Otherwise this be happens.

Strange Tales #114a (v1) : Love this obscure test run of Cap's return.
Great action and tension.
I voted 4 stars, but could understand why the average is 3.
Either way, much better than most of Torch run in Strange Tales.

Tales to Astonish #48 (v1) : The Porcupine had interesting motivations and unmasked looks like George Lucas. I liked him. He could have killed Pym easily as soon as he had him in hand.

I loved the dialogue from everyone in this issue. I really dig the Wasp. I didn't like her in the 1980s: did not know why she was leader of the Avengers, always flirted with everyone and was obsessed with her looks, and even made out with Magneto in Secret Wars #2. But now that I am experiencing her genesis, she really impresses me. I knew a few older males that had a crush on her, and now I know why they did- she was the first real exciting, tough female Marvel hero. She's a smart, feisty little thing. So much better than Pym.

Heroes for Hire #1 (v2) : It was a little talky but really enjoyable to see Misty, Colleen and Shang-Chi in action together again! Nice tie-in with the Civil War story and Misty's "this is our reality but we don't want to hunt out friends" dilemma nicely highlights the complexity and nuance of the issues with Registration.

Mystic Comics #3g (v1) : This could've been a better story with more pages. To bad it just happens to be Dakor's last story. Great scene of Dakor getting clubbed! Interesting that a drug from lilies can dull Dakor's powers. That stone goddess at the end is a MAN!!!

'Nuff Said - "Fists before magic!"-Dakor the Fighting Magician

Tales of Suspense #46 (v1) : Wow how old are you if you believe Iron Man was morally bankrupt for tricking Crimson Dynamo at the end?
So many people here are down on this issue, yet we finally get the first armored villain for Tony, Tony'e empire was close to being ruined, insight into how the U.S. military has problems with him, great Comrade K scenes, and a reformed commie at the end.
This story was so much better than most of Tony's previous ones.

4 stars, eat it and weep!!!

Iron Fist #8 (v1) : Okay, you've gotta be kidding me with those tiger masks! It looks like they were picked up from the local child party/sex shop.
The thought bubble dialogue in this issue was horrendous. Worst offenses were Iron Fist warning himself of a thug's attack in the third person, and everything that Bill Hao was thinking, giving himself his entire backstory, including the fact that he is indeed, Bill Hao.
