Amazing Adventures #19 (v2) : Just 2 stars. I think the problem with this is, that they crammed to much in this issue, and it didn't flow well.

Cover Me - I like the curb your dog sign! Also, at the bottom left hand corner, is that the mutant's head, or butt?!!

Credit Due - I guess I was blinded by Neal Adams art last issue. Now that Howard Chaykin is solo...it's a bit off...

Gatorgigantus - One of AmazingGatorMan's offspring!!!

Lady Liberty - Yikes! Global Warming has hit this reality quicker!!!

Mr. Potato Head - Those are some crappy lookin' martians! I was hoping for something more like from Mars Attacks!!!

Gargoyle - That statue/bust cornerpiece that Killraven is giving his big speech on at the end is odd looking!!

'Nuff Said - "--and give you ladies a gift of my own!"-Kill Them with Kindness Killraven

Jungle Action #7 (v2) : Pretty good second part to the arc. No, it doesn't advance the story much, but the Panther's fight with Venomm made for a pretty good diversion. Just one question: where's the symbiote? (Just kidding)

At least we also got something of a backstory between T'Challa and Killmonger. Not exactly a classic villain, but better than a number of baddies we've seen so far. I like villains with a sense of purpose, and a chieftain working his way up to power one village at a time is working much better than the M.O.'s of other Marvel powermongers.

3 stars. Solid start so far.

Jungle Action #6 (v2) : This arc had already been alluded to by a few issues in the Order prior to this. I was looking forward to a solo Black Panther series, and it's pretty good right out of the gate. I almost kinda want to belt W'Kabi across the chops for his insolence and disrespect to T'Challa, but the thing is, he's right about the Panther's absence from Wakanda. However, I really hope he isn't revealed as one of Killmonger's agents.

Quick history lesson: Jungle Action had started as an Atlas-era book in 1954 and ran 6 issues. The title was revived in 1972 as a reprint series, focusing on Atlas stories in the first 4 issues. Issue #5 reprinted Avengers #62 which was a Panther-centric story, clearly to whet our appetites for this new series!

I like Killmonger as a villain so far, but I'd like to know his prior connection to T'Challa. And yeah, it might appeal to his sense of irony to name his killer leopard "Preyy."

4 stars. Very promising start to the arc. I also hope it becomes full-length before too long, as long as the quality stays up there.

Amazing Adventures #18 (v2) : 4 stars for the Martians finally winning! Take that you damn dirty humans!!!

Cover Me - Well, it's good to know in the future that men can wear women's dominatrix outfits...

Credit Due - Great art by Neal Adams and Howard Chaykin!!!

Raven - Killraven's mom had it going on!!!

They Make Great Pets - So did humans have mutants before the Martians arrived? That inmate who escaped the hospital sure looked like one!

Heed The Call - I wouldn't of lasted long in this reality...the Sirens would've of got me!!!

'Nuff Said - "I'll do more than that, lad...if you'll just...bend closer..."-The Creepy Keeper

Avengers #16 (v1) : The only thing I didn't like here was Iron Man's mention of a manual. The fact that the Avengers have a manual is just corny and stupid imo. Other then that, surprisingly, despite the fact that there was no action here, this was a surprisingly enjoyable issue.

Nomad #4 (v1) : I found it interesting how much the design of The Winter Soldier resembles Nomad's look during the middle of this issue. It's not surprising, and it could certainly be purely coincidental, but it's interesting to me nonetheless.

Russ Says:
Ka-Zar #5 (v2) : Actually, I thought the ending went a ways toward rescuing the entire arc....by ending!

I can see the ending, in a way, although I can't explain the re-emergence of Maa-Gor as a mindless brute from that swamp. The machine should've killed him decisively, but yeah, this is the Marvel Universe, and unless you're Uncle Ben or Gwen Stacy, you don't stay dead. Ever. Or, maybe El Tigre, who did seem down for the count by the end and hasn't appeared since. (Maybe that's a spoiler, but honestly, how many people said "Oh no! El Tigre's my favorite villain! How could you?")

2 stars. It might've been cooler to have the man-apes stay returned and Maa-Gor remain dead. Could've made an intriguing subplot going forward.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Ka-Zar #4 (v2) : I've easily read worse than this arc, but yeah, the flaws here are too detracting. If Maa-Gor's telepathy is so strong, there's no need to tap into TVs and radios; just sway everyone mentally. No need to fight Ka-Zar either, or have El Tigre control Zabu. No need for El Tigre either. The guy is really Professor X with man-ape tendencies.

1 star. Yep, I learned rocket science from reading a book, too. Next project, martial arts. Off to the library!

Captain America #128 (v1) : This was a fine one-off story, but still suffered from Whiny-Cap and flashbacks.
 
Marvel Comments
 
Russ Says:
Ka-Zar #3 (v2) : I agree this one was kind of fun, even if it seemed like I've read this many many times before. It was a new spin on Maa-Gor; I'm guessing they ran out of ideas for a low intelligence man-ape being that doesn't say much, or they thought he was becoming boring.

A few other notes.....

Unknown Tales of the X: El Tigre's appearance was actually in X-Men #25-26 (October-November 1966), reprinted in X-Men #73-74 (December 1971-February 1972), for those of you keeping score. The most recent publication of X-Men in relation to this story is X-Men #87. Most titles in the Order are already into 1975 or very close. Not too much longer before the new team debuts, gang!

Just picked this name out of a hat: Maa-Gor becomes a god-like being and his first thought is to get El Tigre as a henchman? I think his god-like omniscience was still developing at the time!

Not Following Doctor's Orders: Funny, Zabu wasn't hampered by his injuries at all during the events of Marvel Team-Up #19.

The Good Old Days: The "energy crisis" Bobbi mentions on page 22 sent gas prices skyrocketing to 55 cents a gallon in the US!

Higher quality catnip: El Tigre can control Zabu? Hey, he could open a legitimate business; an obedience school for housecats!

2 stars. Seems weird to see Bobbi again after Ka-Zar's run-in with Shanna. Could we be looking forward to another sort of cat fight in the near future?

Incredible Hulk #171 (v1) : I wonder how it comes to be that Rhino and Abomination just "team up" out of nowhere.
Is there like a super-villain pub where they all hang-out? Something so secret that not even S.H.I.E.L.D. knows?
Because what is the likelihood of these two MONSTROUS thugs just randomly meeting on the street and making plans for the evening, without anyone batting an eye?

Incredible Hulk #121 (v1) : Once upon a time, Theodore Sturgeon wrote a story called "It" about a...not exactly a swamp monster, but similar enough. Someone over at Hillman Publications read that story and created The Heap. I think there's been one or two other versions in the MU before the Glob but this is a continuation of the road that leads to both Man-Thing and Swamp Thing.

owenneil Says:
New Mutants #1 Annual : There is a big problem here with introducing more elements than a story really needs. We got startgates, Dyson spheres, a new mutant with a mysterious backstory, an ancient alien civilization, a new alien race, slave collars. Any one or two of these could have told this same basic story, trusting existing concepts, races, locations and characters. Give these concepts room to breath.

Russ Says:
Marvel Team-Up #20 (v1) : "Dinosaurs on Broadway." It could've been worse; the public probably isn't ready for "Killer Dinosaurs, the Musical" just yet.

I classify this one as one of those "So bad it's good" issues. Way too out there for a Spidey story, though he and the Panther actually made a decent team. But yeah, whatever did happen to those dinosaurs once their leader was dispatched? Did SHIELD have them flown back to the Savage Land on that arc? Or maybe the local pet shelter now has some very large animals now looking for good forever homes; are you looking to adopt?

The issue did have two pluses though: that two-page splash was pretty awesome, even if the concept sucked. I also got a big kick out of Spider-Man ripping Mary Jane a new one for breaking the police line. She looked like she needed clean undies after that little encounter, poor girl.

2 stars.

Russ Says:
Marvel Team-Up #19 (v1) : Actually, the problem I have with Marvel Team-Up is that the stories seem to put Spider-Man waaaaay out of his element. Going into the future, stopping dinosaur invasions, that's stuff for other heroes. I get that this title is supposed to showcase Spider-Man working with other heroes, but I have a very hard time believing these stories are canon.

That said, again, this is goofy fun but little else. Finding Stegron right off, the dinosaur ark conveniently placed "where they said it would be" (whoever "they" are), they sure crammed a lot of odd plot points to keep the story moving.

2 stars. I do remember having a large treasury edition of Spider-Man as a kid, which reprinted MTU #13, 19, 20 and 21. This brings back a few memories, but it's interesting to reread this with an adult perspective.

Sub-Mariner #66b (v1) : I didn't think this was too bad. They'd already signposted the reincarnation thing with the demon in the previous story, and the sword in the throne could hardly be more obvious. Yes, it was a very short series, but for what it was, it was pretty good.

Russ Says:
Avengers #126 (v1) : Not one of the better Avengers stories of the period. The whole Swordsman/Mantis/Vision/Scarlet Witch conflict is being forced and forced hard. Wanda's out of character more than anything else, too. Kind of reminds me of the Peter/Gwen conflicts in Amazing Spider-Man that were just stretched out for the sake of adding drama to a few issues. Steve Englehart has been authoring some gems here, but this isn't one of them.

The racism toward Black Panther was a little forced, too. I'm a little surprised they got away with this one, but I liked the way the ambassador was revealed. I'm still having a hard time believing Klaw's and Solarr's powers, though.

The last time we saw Cap have an identity crisis in the Avengers, it happened a full two months before his one "retirement" toward the end of his Tales of Suspense run. This newest crisis finally bears out in the pages of his own mag about 150 issues from now in the Order. I've been awaiting Black Panther's story in Jungle Action for some time, and it's just around the corner. Such is the nature of the Order when depicting a shared universe and a lot is happening.

2 stars. If anyone other than Cap talked that way to Thor on page 4, the thunder god would've hammered the guy upside the head into next Thursday.

JonahBlack Says:
Captain Marvel #21 (v1) : Last issue, I contended, was the best issue of Captain Marvel so far. I would like to contend that this issue was the best issue of Hulk so far in the order.

It was by no means perfect: Kane's ambition and sense of layout seem to exceed his actual drawing ability, and the dialog was, well, Roy Thomas, but the story was good, and I really enjoyed the transformation of Hulk to Banner.

Sometimes I think that Savage Hulk, like Namor, works best as a non-villainous antagonist in someone else's book, than as a protagonist in their own.

JonahBlack Says:
Captain Marvel #20 (v1) : This was easily the best Captain Marvel issue thus far. Okay, not a high hurdle, but I enjoyed it. I feel like it cleared up the relation between Rick and Ma-Vell, and gave the character, as well as the book, some direction.

Some of the dialog was hokey, and the flashback's screwed up the pacing a bit, but I'm not going to get far in the order if that was going to let that bother me.

Dracula Lives #5e : If Dracula's past few appearances tell me something, it's that it's a good thing he isn't a social media presence. I don't think anyone could troll this guy and not pay for it. He's schooled the likes of Cagliostro, Louis Belski, now some poor schlub with a death wish.

An especially dark story, even for the magazine. The plane blowing up was quite a development. Even more so was the narrative focus on some of the passengers that didn't survive. I also liked Drac's reactions to the transfusion, and the fate he subjected the hijacker to. I agree with the other commenters; one of the better Dracula stories in the Order so far.

3 stars.

Amazing Spider-Man #76 (v1) : The problem at Marvel for the past couple of years (1965-1969) was the fact there was only one Jack Kirby and one Steve Ditko. One was overworked and the other had left the company. Romita at first thought Steve would come back, so he consciously imitated him. For Buscema, the rule was 'Be More Like Jack' and Stan would send pages back with suggestions like "Why isn't this more like Kirby?" It feels stupid, but it did create a house style. It took guys like Steranko and Neal Adams to really break the company out of the mode.

Amazing Spider-Man #74 (v1) : In the 1968-70 pantheon of Marvel Comics, The Amazing Spider-Man sits in the center position. It has the best writing and above average art. While Fantastic Four and Thor play the Hades and Poseidon positions, Spidey is Zeus, the best of the best. I guess that makes Captain Marvel a faun.

Anyway, 4 stars.

Tomb of Dracula #16 (v1) : 3 stars for Dracula getting boned!!!

Cover Me - Cool cover of Dracula trying to protect his dish!!!

Here Comes The Sun - Refreshing that a villain actually rewards his henchmen by NOT killing them!!!

Dem Bones - Finally, someone that can give Drac a run for his money! I love to see Duncan Corley's skeleton again!!

I Spit On Your Grave - Okay, I think it went like this. Paul Beare was an Satanist Mystic that made a deal with the devil to be reborn again. So, he chose a gravesite with the right conditions to do just that. But, as all deals with the devil go horribly wrong, Duncan Corley was brought back instead.

Werewolf by Night #19 (v1) : Slowly, things are finally starting to look up in this title. I liked the little twist ending; should make for quite a battle between Jack and Raymond. As for the vampires Louis and Liza, their follow-up appearance from the lead story in Dracula Lives #4 was a bit pedestrian, but it was somewhat interesting to see the two werewolves work together.

2 stars. So, does Clary know Jack's secret now? Or does she still think Jack merely freaked out on her?

Dracula Lives #4a : I don't know....I actually kind of liked this story. Sure, the placement in the Order is a little puzzling, but as a stand-alone it was pretty goofy and entertaining. I could also see Dracula being irritated by this lousy actor, and wanting to teach him a lesson for making the Count look so doltish. Of course, making a snack out of Liza never hurts either, right?

2 stars. Maybe if Drac gets tired of trying to turn the Earth into his personal buffet, he could try becoming an acting coach.

(with Fangs)" because he's no more a threat than an English Sheepdog. I'd give up on this series if Ma Mayhem weren't at least interesting, and I have to admit she stole the show this issue!

And I had a feeling Ray Coker was going to end up as some magical creature or other, if not a werewolf, before long. The two wolves throwing down also helped things, but there's too much crap weighing this series down.

2 stars. I need one of those cleaning ladies around, especially for when solicitors come knocking on my door.

Marvel Mystery Comics #6f : I was surprised to see the topic about drug dealing. Even more so with the Chinatown drug deal.

X-Men vs The Avengers #4 : I thought Captain America was better at reading people... and then his asinine statement about Magneto... Captain America just seems out of character in this series...

Strange Tales #154b (v1) : I liked the art and the cloaked figure, but the rest was uninteresting. Umar has out stayed her welcome.

Werewolf by Night #17 (v1) : This series is losing all its credibility. Jack's character isn't tracking the calendar, constantly providing inopportune changes when they're otherwise easy to predict, the werewolf can be beaten in a fight by my grandmother, and the battle with the behemoth couldn't have lasted more than 20 minutes. This has become a horribly written series with no thought being put into anything.

1 star. This stretch of werewolf stories is getting very brutal, and not in an entertaining way.

Werewolf by Night #16 (v1) : Of course the werewolf cried! If you were a character in this insipid story you'd be crying too, wouldn't you?

It might've been more entertaining to put in Quasimodo from the Fantastic Four Annuals instead of this guy. As it stands, this story was pure filler and nothing more. Move along, nothing to see here.

1 star. @TheAmazingGatorMan: Actually, Werewolf vs. Mike Tyson. Let's see who gets to chew the other's ear off first.

Captain America #127 (v1) : Hrm. I looked through the whole issue, and I was pretty sure that page 4, panel 3 wasn't ridiculous. Then I realized he was putting a coat over his costume, rather than changing out of it.

Yup. 100% ridiculous.

Captain America #126 (v1) : A little preachy, but fairly enjoyable. I still really like this early Falcon Costume.

Silver Surfer #6a (v1) : Meh. Essentially an Astonish/Strange/Journey/Suspense story from the 1950s with a very thick layer of melodrama and philosophy. Two Stars.
