Fred W. Hill replied to Randy Jackson's discussion X-men/Doom Patrol sales questions
"Except for a few excerpts online, I haven't read any of the original run of Doom Patrol, which ended about 5 years before I began collecting comics in earnest.  But by the early '80s I'd read several references to them and when I…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Doom Patrol' coming to DC streaming service
"I don't have cable/satellite connections and limit my streaming to NetFlix.  With work and so much else to keep me occupied, I'm just not inclined to pay for various channels I might rarely if ever watch.  Still, I wanted to…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Charlie Watts
"Yep, and particularly those lps the Kinks released between 1965 and 1971 -- Kontroversy, Face to Face, Something Else, Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur, Lola Vs. Powerman & the Money-go-round, and Muswell Hillbillies, are all…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Charlie Watts
"As a senior in high school, class of 1980, I did a small poster for an art class, featuring my 6 favorite bands of that time, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd ... and the Doors.  Oh, I also liked CCR, the Jefferson…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Charlie Watts
"My feelings are much the same, Randy.  I got into the Beatles in a big way in the mid-70s (I was born in 1962, but don't recall being aware of them in the 1960s, maybe in part because my family moved to Japan a couple of months before I…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Captain America
"Seems like it was a rather haphazard means of disposing of Sharon Carter without much deep thought, although such tragedies do happen in the real world all to often.  But then, it was yet another example of the "girlfriend in the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I'd only ever read about Fleischer's Spectre stories, mainly in TCJ but also online, but from what I've seen, the Spectre had a perverse sense of "poetic justice" under Fleischer, revenge fantasies gone wild with a being of…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I do recall reading that unfavorable review although I hadn't previously heard of any connection between that and the lawsuit, but that theory certainly seems plausible.  I admit that although some of the opinions expressed in TCJ could be…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"Led me to diversify my comics collecting as well.  As to the Fleischer controversy, I happened to miss the issue with that interview with Ellison, but I think Fleischer's lawsuit itself did a hell of a lot more damage to his reputation…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I read The Comics Journal regularly during the '80s and most of the 90s, at least while I could find it in comics stores or book stores.  Anyhow, it seriously expanded my knowledge about comics and exposed me to a wide variety of opinions…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Falcon and Winter Soldier' episode 3: Just who are these guys, anyway?
"In the comics, Sharon Carter was Peggy's sister, as revealed in Captain America & the Falcon issue 162 which I purchased when it was new on the racks in 1973.  Of course, back then it was stretching things too much for a character who…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Thor
"I remember that cover to Thor #121 being advertised in many other titles in December 1973, and the next month it was Amazing Spider-Man #131, wherein Doc Ock & Aunt May almost tied the knot.  Those two issues always remind me of the winter…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Ditko Doctor Strange
"The Stern & Rogers run on Dr, Strange is a classic.  Great writing and great art, with some humor as well as heart-wrenching moments, and bringing greater depth to the Master of the Mystic Arts as a flawed and vulnerable human being,…"
Mar 21, 2021
Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Fantastic Four
"Regarding that paycheck -- exactly how were Ben & Johnny in particular earning money?  Were they both so independently wealthy when they got their super-powers that earning money wasn't a concern for them at all? Or, ahem, were they…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'WandaVision' episode 9 left us with questions. We've got answers!
"As a long-time comic who loved the Avengers most when Wanda & the Vision were part of the team back in the 1970s, and had stopped reading Avengers a bit before Byrne had the Vision dismantled, I thoroughly enjoyed WandaVision.  Really…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Sandra Essien
