Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. “Once More With…”
"I never got any of the Giant-Size issues when they were new on the spinner racks, or anywhere else.  Either they were out of my price range (after I'd selected all the regular size comics I wanted) or they simply weren't stocked at…"

"Seems the main purpose of this Mysterio yarn was to heighten the suspense of the "return" of Gwen Stacy.  Of course, it might have been more clever if the Jackal and Mysterio were working together to try to make Peter doubt his own…"

"I haven't heard or read of any specific reason but those make sense too, especially in wake of the first Captain America movie and its filmmakers resorting to converting Nazis to Hydra agents and using the Hydra emblem rather than swastikas."

"Saw Wonder Woman on the big screen last night with several friends.  Thought it was a great film -- far better than the Superman & BatMan mashup.  I was surprised that it was set during the first World War rather than the second but in…"

"I've never seen the Corman FF film myself, nor do I have any desire to.  Nevertheless, based on your comments, seems they potentially could have made a much better film -- that is if they'd had better actors and a much bigger budget.…"

Fred W. Hill replied to PowerBook Pete, the Mad Mod's discussion Anything, Everything, or Nothing At All
"Partial classic rock soundtrack to listen to while reading comics featuring simians:  the Kinks' Ape-Man and King Kong; the Rolling Stones' Monkey Man; the Beatles' Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My…"

Fred W. Hill replied to PowerBook Pete, the Mad Mod's discussion Anything, Everything, or Nothing At All
"Marvel only had the Red Ghost's simian comrades, who didn't talk; the guy in the gorilla suit in the Ani-Men aka Unholy Three; and the Gibbon who pestered Spider-Man in one of Stan's last stories in ASM.  Strangely, Lee…"

"And screw up Scott Summer's character and ultimately kill off Jean Grey again.  But, hey, this is comics so eventually she'll return, if she hasn't already."

"Did Claremont tell Smith that Madelyn was supposed to look like a dead ringer for Jean Grey?  Or was that aspect really only brought up after Jean was resurrected and they decided to have Madelyn go mad and bad?  I recall a bit in Not…"

"Conway was usually pretty good writing Peter's social dramas but rather sloppy in some of his plotting.  But as a kid reading these when they were new they were generally entertaining enough so I didn't really care that the Grizzly…"

"I'm pretty sure that was the first time Hawkeye's real name was mentioned.  And I would guess in any scene with Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Donald Blake, Henry Pym, Warren Worthington, III, Johnny Storm and Jim Hammond all appearing…"

"Over in Spider-Man, Ditko initially had Peter Parker regularly wearing a suit and tie to high school, and looked all that much more nerdy for it, although I don't recall him ever wearing a hat.  Of course, old-fashioned JJJ regularly wore…"

"Speaking of revealing secret I.D.s, I've read the stories in which Hank Pym & Janet Van Dyne revealed their I.D.s, just before re-joining the team for the first time, and when Hawkeye told everyone his real name, and when Thor and Iron Man…"

"Despite being a Danish film, albeit with at least a couple of U.S. actors involved, members of the cast of Reptilicus, one playing a big, dumb but well-meaning lummox; and a beautiful young blonde, reminded me very much of Jethro and Ellie Mae.…"

"Hanging out with a few friends tonight, watched the last couple of episodes of Lucifer and ...the Mystery Science Theater 3000 showing of the, ahem, "classic" Danish giant monster film Reptilicus!   Been a while since I've seen a…"
