Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"That struck me too upon reading it when it came out.  Looking back, seems to me that Shooter was so focused on telling a story of a long-time good guy going bad that he didn't really make much of an effort to make long time readers believe…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Silver Sightings: Batman's Silver Age: What Took So Long?
"I think appearances by Captain America in the Iron Man feature in ToS and by Hulk in Giant-Man in TtA were rather natural as Cap & Shellhead were teammates and Giant-Man and the Hulk were ex-teammates, all over in the Avengers, and although each…"

"She'd be pretty high on my rankings, maybe just a close second to Barbara Eden."

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Silver Sightings: Batman's Silver Age: What Took So Long?
"FF #1 definitely had two distinct stories -- the origin, then the clash with the Mole Man.  Issue 2, while still divided into distinct chapters, was really one story in several parts as were most issues over the next year or so, with #11 being…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Silver Sightings: Batman's Silver Age: What Took So Long?
"Admittedly, I'm not that familiar with Batman stories in either Detective Comics or his own title of the Silver Age, but it did surprise to read that even this late, there were still multiple stories in one issue of his own title, prompting me…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Philip Portelli's discussion Silver Sightings: Batman's Silver Age: What Took So Long?
"As a kid, it was the crazy super-villains that most appealed to me in the Batman tv series.  I hadn't read too many Batman comics, but for the most part the DC comics I read in the late '60s and early '70s failed to hook my…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Buck Henry
"Loved Get Smart and Buck's appearances on SNL too, as well as The Graduate.  Of course, while I'd seen his name on the credits to Get Smart and I recalled his brief appearance in The Graduate, I didn't really become aware of who…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion JUSTICE LEAGUE of AMERICA: The Detroit Era
"Nearly 20 years earlier, DC had "killed" off the Doom Patrol, although they all eventually got better.  Still, these issues were a rather dramatic send off for the newbies to the JLA, that would have been akin to Stan killing off…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. “Once More With…”
"Rather amazing how Frank Miller really transformed the Kingpin from a rather 2nd tier Spider-Man baddie (at least compared to Dr. Octopus and the Green Goblin) to the top tier Daredevil baddie.  Miller took all the elements that were…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"Of course, in this instance, Shooter reset the roster back to the 1964-'65 team, but with Tigra rather than Rick Jones as the extra hand to Thor, Iron Man, Cap, Jan & Hank and this is the first time those 5 particular members became the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Watchmen' isn't an adaptation: It's something better
"I'll admit I'm a bit leery of reading any more comics updates of Watchmen and really don't like the idea of mingling the Watchmen universe with the mainstream DC Universe.  But I pretty much quit reading new mainstream comics…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Watchmen' isn't an adaptation: It's something better
"Much enjoyed the entire series, even the ending which echoes the ending of the original comics, except that rather than a hand tentatively reaching for a document that might change everything, this time it's a foot tentatively touching water…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Watchmen' isn't an adaptation: It's something better
"Excellent series with many unexpected twists, certainly much more in the spirit of Moore's original story than the movie, which too often seemed to miss the point of the graphic series."

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"This is another of those issues I read once and then totally forgot, such that while I vaguely recall seeing the cover, I have no recollection at all of the contents.  It wasn't until Shooter took over again a few issues later that the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"Colan produced some great work on standard superhero fare,as with his runs on Iron Man & Sub-Mariner and Daredevil, but IMO his best work was on Dr. Strange, Tomb of Dracula and Howard the Duck, more offbeat fare which I loved.  Alas, I…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"Yep, and a sociopath can pass a lie detector with flying colors after telling all manner of lies and denying crimes he actually committed.  I think it can be a useful tool but courts must be very wary of putting too much faith in it and it…"

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.
