Fred W. Hill replied to Steve W's discussion A Cover a Day
"Great cover to that Sinister House of Secret Love, but my real love was for ol' Howie -- HTD #4 was the first issue I saw and I was intrigued enough to check it out and in short order Howard the Duck became one of my favorite comics."

Fred W. Hill replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Lucifer Vol.1: Cold Heaven
"I got them a few years ago.  Carey wrote many great stories about the ex-lord of Hell (and his & Gaiman's Lucifer is nothing like the character loosely based on him in the tv show, which I find entertaining enough, but the comics are…"

"The hidden half of Mazikeen's face had no flesh, and that was depicted in all its gruesomeness in her initial appearances in Sandman in the Season of Mists collection.  Later, in The Kindly Ones collection, Mazikeen is depicted with the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion "Yellow Submarine" to get a 50th anniversary theatricial rerelease
"As a Beatles aficionado, I'm looking forward to that!  Although I was born in 1962, i didn't really become aware of the Beatles until I saw Yellow Submarine on tv in 1972, and just the first two songs, the title track and Eleanor…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 205 Captain America, G-Man!
"Seems there was a tug of war between Lee & Kirby over how to portray Cap, with Kirby favoring way out adventures without much character depth or growth while Lee insisted on some angst, something to indicate to readers that Cap wasn't just…"

"I like how Gaiman connected the various DC versions of the Sandman, just as a bit later Robinson did the same for the various Starmen.  Might be amusing if someone somehow connected Morpheus with Marvel's Sandman."

Fred W. Hill replied to Steve W's discussion A Cover a Day
"Pretty nice cover and at least the Red Bee's costume is nothing like the Green Hornet's, but still a very ridiculous concept, especially given the reality that for bees using their stinger is a suicidal act as the barbs prevent them from…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Black Panther Questions AKA I Was Wondering #31
"It occurred to me a bit after my previous post that I had forgotten about the new Muslim/Arab Ms. Marvel as well as the new Hispanic Ultimate Spider-Man as examples of diversity of recent vintage at Marvel, as well as the Hispanic White Tiger of the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Black Panther Questions AKA I Was Wondering #31
"As to the Avengers membership in the early to mid-70s, it helps to recall that it was largely based on what characters the writer wanted to use with little editorial mandate.  When Roy Thomas took over from Stan Lee in the mid-60s, Lee…"

"As a young adolescent reading some of those stories featuring Karnilla drawn by John Buscema in the early '70, his depiction of the Norn Queen certainly aroused my interest!  His Sif looked great too, but Karnilla looked like she was eager…"

"The general look of the Silver Age Vision looks a lot like the Golden Age Vision, aside from the latter appearing very pale in contrast to the new Vision's red synthetic skin, which is the prime physical resemblance between the Vision and the…"

"And through Avengers #104, Pietro's appearances were nearly always in association with his sister, Wanda, aside from an issue of X-Men in which he took on Cyclops and an issue of Amazing Spider-Man in an era when every few issues Stan would…"

Fred W. Hill replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion "Black Panther" movie discussion -- SPOILERS!!!
"I strongly suspect if anyone looks hyper-critically at any movie, even highly regarded classics such as Citizen Kane or The Godfather, blemishes can be found causing the critic to say, "aha, so this isn't so perfect after all!  It…"

"Ol' Hank looks like he's having a peaceful nap, unmindful that his series is about to be cancelled and Subby will take his slot in the next issue and it would be several months before anyone would see him in a comic again. "

Fred W. Hill replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion "Black Panther" movie discussion -- SPOILERS!!!
"Very thoughtful and detailed review, Captain!  Excellent job!  I mentioned to a friend of mine tonight, when we got to talking about the movie, that as a kid, about 43 years ago, I'd read reprints of T'Challas' first…"

Fred W. Hill replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion "Black Panther" movie discussion -- SPOILERS!!!
"Just saw Black Panther today and agree, excellent film.  Among other tidbits, fun for us who read Jungle Tales #6, the first chapter of Don McGregor's "Panther's Rage" saga, which ends with Killmonger throwing T'Challa…"

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.
