Mystic Comics #3e (v1) : Hmmm...I can see why Excello doesn't appear again until the Twelve miniseries!

@Zirilian: Yeah, some disguise, it looks like he didn't do anything different!

Journey into Mystery #97b (v1) : Tales of Asgard is the real creative, artistic work behind Thor. Kirby is tapping into the realm of the gods to draw this and Stan is basing the history from library text books.

Journey into Mystery #97a (v1) : Wonder if Dr. Bruce Andrew Basil already tried out Jane Foster during the interview Harvey Weinstein style...

Lava Man started off well but Thor went into roid rage, probably over Jane lol

Art is good.

Thor's personality- he has been slowly changing his speech patterns last two issues, plus Avengers, and it appears he took over Don Blake's body..lol

I think all of this gets revealed with Tom DeFalco in the late 1980s or early 1990s, I read the secret origin of Donald Blake then.

Mystic Comics #3c (v1) : Interesting that Flexo is fireproof. Shame he never ran into the Human Torch.

Mystic Comics #3b (v1) : Hercules, Hercules, Hercules...The story was very choppy. Making it look like Bobbie was just walking around pointing out things for Hercules to do!

Eternals #10 (v1) : Yeah, I've got to agree with HeffElf, this seems so out of place because there are giant monsters wreaking havoc everywhere and there are no people in spandex fighting them off.
That being said, this issue actually made it seem like some forward progress was made in the story for once, so... yay?

Marvel Team-Up #37 (v1) : Well, I wish I could say this arc was a classic....actually, no I don't. Monster Maker as a villain is about as weak as they come. We don't see him again; I think 40 years later he's still locked up in a sanitarium somewhere crying his eyes out!

It'll be awhile before we see Man-Wolf again. Yeah, his appearance here seems to break continuity a little bit, but I'm kinda finding myself not caring about it too much.

2 stars. @TheAmazingGatorMan: I dunno. Hellcow was a bit intimidating. Mooooooooooohahahahaha!

Thor #128a (v1) :
  • That's my line "He hath tottered at the brink of the eternal sleep, my Lord Odin... but, the glowing strength of his limbs, coupled with the matchless courage of his spirit, shall surely restore thy princely offspring to thy bosom, Sire! (submissive royal physician)

  • For once, I like the punishment Odin chose. Also, the Rock Trolls don't look bestial at all. Here, they are rather portrayed as... Minions-like insignificant little creatures! "Bello!"

  • Thor on a fishing trip, all dressed in fur with his best buddy Balder. So cool!

  • Thor's recovery, in relation with Hercules's sub-plot, seemed a bit rushed. These can't be happening on the same time span, can they? I mean, Thor went from near death to kickass full-powered fighting God in the time it took Hercules to have dinner over a contract.

  • Speaking of which, it appears that all it takes to sign an Olympian contract is a greasy thumbprint! No ink necessary!

  • I would never have thought, but this series has become my favorite, after Spidey and the FF. Kirby's art was breathtaking in this one! I just love his full-page panels. And I'm just fond of stories with Hercules in them. Even if it felt a bit like a filler, it was a very enjoyable read. 5 stars.

Thor #128a (v1) : > ...he's back and learning the first lesson upon dealing with mortals: always read the fine print!

Well, technically he was dealing with an immortal. Good one about Seidring, BTW!

Thor #128a (v1) : > Thor has a bed that's shaped like a boat...what he is like 8 years old..?!?

Yeah, but a badass boat! With a gargoyle on top! I just love it! And I'd sleep in it!

Russ Says:
Marvel Team-Up #36 (v1) : Well, at least the two actually met and teamed up, unlike the last ill-advised horror cross-over from Giant-Size Spider-Man #1 which had Dracula. This isn't much of a story here, but by now we all know that's not really the point of this title.

The inaccuracies of the flashback kind of irked me too. I think they wanted to demonstrate that the monster's mind is a little faulty (hey, the guy was stitched together from dead body parts including the brain, he's going to get stuff wrong!) The villain makes me chuckle a little bit; he's got a goofy name, plus he wants to make a monster he can control. We all know how that works out in fantasy literature, right?

2 stars. Spidey's incredulous reaction to Frankie's story makes sense, considering the events in his main title.

Strange Tales #113 (v1) : Plantman vs Human Torch should have been one panel.
But noooooooo...The plants put Johnny's flame out with DEW and seaweed moisture. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

Anyway, Doris makes a good debut at least. Love how she keeps Johnny guessing which makes him like her more...typical man! hehehe

Another plus is not having random villains- Plantman knew Doris's dad.

Wish Strange Tales was billed as a comedy comic, so my expectations would come down. It is amazing that most of the cheesy Marvel villains spawned from here (although The Wizard had a handful of good runs in FF and Hulk years later.) As it stands now, it's just pure garbage with DC artwork.

Tales to Astonish #47 (v1) : RIP Korr :-(

I knew this comic would blow chunks HARD based on the splash page (covers can always be deceiving).

I like Don Heck's Janet, she is the most beautifully drawn female in Marvel at this point. But the overall art from Heck is better off in a true romance comic than Ant-Man's adventures.

Awful jazz hypno impressionist stuff.

RIP Korr :-(

Tales of Suspense #45 (v1) : Was thrown for a loop when Pepper was called Kitty.
Anyway, Happy is great and although Jack Frost is nothing to write home about, he is an organic villain as opposed to a random alien, commie, or time traveler.

So Jack Frost is the first disgruntled employee to turn on Tony Stark? It is a neat trope. Tony has more angry ex-employees than Steve Jobs did.

Anyway, Tales of Suspense finally feels like a real comic book now with actual character development.

Don Heck's inks are amazing. Too bad they don't appear in The Avengers.

Still not as fun as Spidey, FF, or even X-Men #1, but better than Tales to Astonish and Strange Tales. Journey into Mystery is hit or miss.

Tangent: I hate the old Marvel anthology names.

jennychan Says:
Avengers #1 (v1) : It is technically Marvel's biggest crossover to date but it is more like Marvel Universe vs Hulk and only Thor really shines.

Pretty disjointed and does not feel like a team book like FF or X-Men #1. Feels more like an all-star game.

It's not 4 stars, but it's better than a random anthology comic so far. Because of the star-studded line-up, I guess I will give it a 3 begrudgingly.

Russ Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #150 (v1) : As far as anniversary issues go, this one actually wasn't bad at all, though that's not a very high bar to clear. I give Archie Goodwin some credit here; he used this issue to get his feet wet in scripting Spidey, while using the current plot threads still in motion, interweaving them to great effect. And yeah, Smythe's plot was a little lame, but because of that interweaving it worked better than it should've.

3 stars. Peter may have had his doubts about who he is throughout this story, but in the hour between the end of last issue and the start of this one, with MJ over it didn't seem like he had any doubts whatsoever!

Russ Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #149 (v1) : Yeah, this didn't end as well as I was hoping. It was quite rushed as if it needed another issue to let the story breathe. The arc doesn't land with a dull thud, but it did end on a somewhat disappointing note, and I can see everyone's dread at the 90's Clone Saga that spawned from this arc.

Some other notes:

- Send in the Clones: I'm guessing when Gwen's blood sample was collected in biology class, so was Peter's. What's to say that Gwen's sample was the only one worked on? Without revealing any spoilers, I think this is examined in the 90's arc, though I'm honestly not certain.

- Putting in your Two-Sense Worth: Something is quite wrong with Spidey's Spider Sense. They made a point at it not tingling with friends (like Warren last issue), but it tingles when Peter finds Mary Jane at his apartment? Maybe some third agent is nearby creating the tingles. Or, Peter's losing it. Or, the writers are messing up again.

- Hardest word to say: While it might've worked for more stories to have Gwen-clone stick around for awhile, I think having her leave was probably the smart move. It's time for Peter and MJ to give things a whirl and the entire storyline with Gwen played out as far as it could go. However, having Gwen turn up periodically would work if not overdone.

4 stars, mostly for historical importance. It may not have been that great overall, especially the ending, but it made a nice postscript to Spidey's Silver Age.

Amazing Spider-Man #264 (v1) : Agreed with the guys above that expressed mild enjoyment. I have learned that the occasional lighthearted, "off-beat", nonsequitur issues are just a part of the Marvel experiencce. And this issue is adequately enjoyable as an example of that.

My only beef was the seeming lack of any attenpt to acknowledge the main story.

Fantastic Four #1b Annual : Feels like Kirby had penciled this originally and then Ditko did his own version, which then got published in FF1, and then Stan re-presented the original as an extended version.........

Do I get a No-Prize?

Fantastic Four #1a Annual : Hey, REED, let's NOT cut this short. "Dr. Falton" was gonna tell us that Namor fought for the Allies in the Big One.

Not sure why Stan thought there were 9 million people in NY or NYC in 1963.

Anyway, this is a CLASSIC Atlantis/Namor origin story and he takes over the world for a brief time. With the side drama of Sue + Namor plus Lady Dorma + Krang, great artwork, and lots of pages this is 5 stars.

Russ Says:
Amazing Spider-Man #148 (v1) : This was indeed one of the better reveals in the Order up to this point, and the bait-and-switch was executed brilliantly. Conway, why can't you put together story arcs like this in your other work? Seriously, dude, you're exasperating!

But another thing about this reveal, and this is the problem I have with it, is that Prof. Warren ad the Jackal are of two completely different body builds. How the heck can an older, stocky guy become a slender athletic type with some contortionist poses thrown in? I know Warren was created quite some time ago, well before the Gwen Stacy death arc, but the body mismatch happens because it's never thought through and it annoys me.

I also didn't like the Peter-Mary Jane interaction. Both were a little out of line here, as MJ didn't really have any business making Peter make a choice at this stage. But Peter was out of line even worse by ignoring her. Yep, he realized it after the fact, but geez, get a grip, man.

3 stars. Wanted to give this 4, but the two problems I had knocked it down one. Still, this is shaping up to be quite a finish!

Strange Tales #112 (v1) : Actually a decent Torch issue in Strange Tales. His sacrifice is a prototype to the one he makes in Hickman's run.

Prolly too much dialogue. Eel's costume looks good. He should keep that mask on though- ugly dude underneath. Was always into D-list villains like him when I saw them in the 1980s.

Amazing Spider-Man #5 (v1) : Slight step down, so "only" 4 stars lol...
Parker's characterization and background characters are so superior to anything at the time, that a slightly bad appearance by Doom (too many Doombots, art, and it seemed like a low-end plan for Doom) still allows for an amazing comic.

Liked how Pete at least mused about joining Doom and not saving Flash.
