"Personally, I approved of the change, even if it only lasted for the period of the FF's dysfunctional era.  Although I'd gotten a few late Kirby-era issues of the FF, my main collection didn't really begin until Roy took over…"

"Nor really my very first issue of the FF, but the first in my collection started after my family had moved from Long Beach, CA, to Salt Lake City, UT, during which my dad had thrown out all of the comics I had previously collected, which I remember…"

"Totally agree on the difference between this and the original Galactus trilogy, having first read both in the giant Treasury editions.  Kirby's Galactus also tended to appear more stoic, doing what he had to do, but not a raging…"

"Brunner is a magnificent artist and his particular style was clearly more time-consuming than most. Pity that resulted in his run on the newly established title being rather short.  At least for the length of the run of this 2nd series of Dr.…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Captain America
"I think the point has to be held that just as Simon & KIrby created Captain America a year before the Pearl Harbor attack but over a year after Hitler launched the European side of WWII with his entirely unjustified attack on Poland because they…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Doctor Strange (solo)
"The first comic I ever purchased featuring Dr. Strange as a solo star was Marvel Premiere #10, and while I missed the next several issues, I loved it for both Englehart's writing and Brunner's stunning artwork.  "

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion When Foursomes Were Fantastic
"Yep, the Avengers became a young team with issue #17, although Hawkeye in particular looked upon Cap as "ancient" since he had been born over 40 years earlier and was a veteran of a war that had ended 20 years earlier, although Cap had…"

"I've read that same explanation too, Richard, and it seems to be the main reason for the change and Lee was rather strict about trying to maintain some consistent continuity in the mags at the time, which couldn't have been too difficult…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion When Foursomes Were Fantastic
"Now that you mention, Randy, very true about Cap's solo stories, although often under Kirby there was so much action going on the introspection seemed relatively minimal, but that seemed more when other artists collaborated with Lee on the ToS…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion When Foursomes Were Fantastic
"The original Avengers were stripped down to a foursome with issue #3, but with no clear leader, and essentially 2 strong guys in Thor and Giant-Man, and the girlfriend but no "kid brother" officially on the team, although they did have…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion When Foursomes Were Fantastic
"By the late '60s, Thor became a sort of team comic, as Balder, Sif, Fandral, Hogun and Vollstagg took on more prominent roles, albeit still subordinate to Thor himself.  When I started reading the Avengers regularly in 1973, the team, with…"

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.
