Fantastic Four #168 (v1) : "Wah! I'm the Thing! I wish I was Ben Grimm! Wah! I'm Ben Grimm! I wish I was the Thing!" Make up your mind, ya big baby!

Incredible Hulk #201 (v1) : Well I guess Fahferd and the Grey Mouser were on the outs, so Fahferd changed his name to Kronak? Or maybe Kronak was Fahferd's cousin.

Doctor Strange #177 (v1) : It bothers me that Dr. Strange just keeps his new disguise without giving any reason although he mentioned that he only needs it because someone else took his appearance and that there can not be 2 people looking like Stephen Strange...(I hope he never finds his doppelganger (I love how the english language just uses a german word for that))

The identity-reveal of Asmodeus caught me totally by surprise! Awesome twist!

The foreshadowing on the big clash of titans that is coming makes me curious... I really like this Mag in its current state (except "Captain Strange" as mentioned)

Master of Kung Fu #77 : From the cover, I was hoping that they'd have slipped in a Bob Dylan reference. Oh well.

Amazing Spider-Man #123 (v1) : Psychologically, from Cage to JJJ to MJ to Peter, everyone is in character. They all act as they should under these conditions.

This was a good cool-down from the last couple of issues.

4 stars.

Amazing Spider-Man #122 (v1) : You know, I've stated it before, but I have a rule that if you make me cry, you get 5 stars.

I didn't cry until MJ shut the door. Here is the beginning of their love story that leads to their marriage (one of the highlights of my old comic book addict days).

As for Spid...PETER not killing Harry, they kind of touched on this in an issue of Spider-Man/Deadpool where Spider-Man wants to kill Itsy-Bitsy and Deadpool tries to stop him because Spider-Man is a hero and Deadpool wants him to continue to be a hero. That's the point. Peter couldn't kill Harry because then he wouldn't be a hero anymore. He would still wear the red and blues and fly around Manhattan on a web, but he'd be a killer, not a hero.

We need our heroes. Even the flawed ones.

5 stars for the best Spider-Man issue ever.

Amazing Spider-Man #121 (v1) : This reminds me of the end to "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" when the police arrive and James Bond is holding his wife's dead body in his arms and gently brushing her hair back and talking about having all the time in the world.

Five stars.

I (Heart) Marvel: Masked... : Reading the recap page I was thinking Justice and Firestar were MIA during "Decimation" and they didn't account for Squirrel Girl either. Molly from Runaways got a visit from the X-Men but none of the above did.

Amazing Spider-Man #142 (v1) : This is the type of story that'll induce nightmares for a few nights. The Spidey-Mysterio fight? All those hallucinations? Nope, I mean Aunt May! She finally looks like what we've said about her all these years. Seriously, that look on page 6 would send the Joker running for the hills in terror!

I also thought this issue was a bit of a let-down from last issue's setup, but it still worked pretty well. This new Mysterio is obviously not in the same league as the original, but he did have a pretty solid plan and a little bit of luck on his side. It didn't surprise me at all that he folded up like a cheap lawn chair once Spidey figured out the secret to his illusions. And JJJ's reaction to another one of his anti-Spidey plans going up in smoke was funny. The guy's ego is big enough to have its own area code.

3 stars. One of Conway's better stories, although that's not a high bar to clear in most cases.

Amazing Spider-Man #141 (v1) : In this issue: Spider-Man's contribution to offsetting the energy crisis is carpooling! Except the Spider-Mobile is now in an awfully big pool....

I enjoyed this one. It's a pretty creepy start to the arc and the looks of a great plan for Mysterio. The bombshell at the end added to the mystery, even if it's nothing more than a rumor mill at work. Still, after everything Spidey's been through over the past couple of years, that hallucinogen Mysterio used was extra potent, and made for a compelling story where generally, in Conway's hands, it could've degenerated into an absurd mess.

I also enjoyed that brief moment Peter and Mary Jane had. It was a bittersweet scene of them still dealing with the shared tragedy they experienced, and it made me realize that I missed the character growth that made Spider-Man one of the best books around.

4 stars. Great start to the arc; here's hoping the conclusion doesn't disappoint.

Russ Says:
Giant-Size Fantastic Four #4 : The story wasn't bad, but it was a bit confusing. I think what was going on with the suit was it was draining power from sources nearby. Disabling it would only render it inert; enter Professor X to teach him to control his powers. Interesting that he had the powers at birth instead of at puberty; it probably made discipline by his parents somewhat difficult!

But man, did the Thing forget his brain pills or something? He kept punching Madrox in spite of what he'd seen before and Reed's warnings. I think the suit also contributed to Madrox's power and the ability to knock Ben out; Ben had it seriously coming! No wonder Madrox was beside himself! That is, errr, uhm, yeah.

3 stars, but a pretty lackluster start to what will eventually be one of the better and more compelling X-characters in the future. Is this a teaser for the upcoming X-Men re-launch? Very strong possibility.

Note: there were two more issues of Giant-Size FF, both of which went with reprints.

Marvel Mystery Comics #56f : I totally agree with philvt101. What was the point in giving her powers if only to drop that plot the very next issue. Was it only a dream?

Marvel Mystery Comics #56a : That's my line – "I feel like the Dutch boy with his finger in the dike!" (Toro) – OK, is there anyone who did NOT think of a dike joke here?

Warlock #3 (v1) : Do we have to be constantly reminded that the High Evolutionary hates Counter-Earth and wants to destroy it every issue? It's getting old.

Incredible Hulk #161 (v1) : Isn't it interesting that even though their mag is in reprints, the X-Men keep oozing into other books? Avengers, Amazing Adventures, Hulk...

Three stars--extra star for Beast's witticisms...

JonahBlack Says:
Thor #182 (v1) : Thor's usually one of my favorites in the order, and who doesn't love Doom, but this story irked me for all the reasons above. I think the plan that Blake used to get Doom to kidnap him bothered me even more than the totally unnecessary reaction to Doom's face.

I also can't help but wonder what's going to happen to Dr Blake's reputation when it comes out that he fabricated a story about a new Plastic Surgery technique.

Marvel Team-Up #9 (v1) : Zarko the Man-Frog Lives! Oops, wrong Zarko...

As of this writing 12/12/17 the next couple of issues of MTU aren't in Unlimited so I only get the first part.

Not bad but does Tony have to be such a jerk?

What? There's strife in Osbornlandia?

Three stars.

Defenders #144 (v1) : Cloud to the rescue! I agree, this appeared too easy at the end. There should have been an epic battle between giant sized Val and a giant sized Moonie.
