"The change in costume, with the face-covering mask, was apparently a desperate attempt to boost Dr. Strange's sales by making him look a bit more like a standard super-hero. Didn't work, lasting only a few more issues before being…"

"Question -- did Gil draw this before or after he drew the creation of the Abomination in Tales to Astonish?  Because that sea creature is a dead ringer for that classic Hulk baddie, aside being much bigger and having that fin on his head. …"

"Presumably Wally Wood was inspired by the Lon Cheney films of the same name - the silent 1925 original and the 1930 talkie remake, both directed by Tod Browning and based on a novel by Clarence Robbins.  I haven't seen either but had read…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Steve Ditko
"Yep, when Peter Parker truly becomes an adult and should no longer be troubled by adolescent angst, at least as per Randian philosophy.  Of course, Stan Lee begged to differ on that and reality is much more complex than Ayn Rand made it out to…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Steve Ditko
"Possibly, although I suspect it was more something in his personality that while he could be very friendly and had a great sense of humor, he was also so intensely private that maybe outside of his immediate family he was unable to have any…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion RIP Steve Ditko
"I recall seeing reprints of Ditko's early Marvel work circa 1974, when I was about 12, and it didn't appeal to me at all -- too different from typical Marvel artwork of the mid-70s.  Later on, however, I grew to appreciate his art,…"

"GS FF #2 came out about 45 years after 1929 and now it's been 44 years since GS FF #2 came out, but if they do a story next year set in 1974, they'll pretend the FF weren't around back then, aside from maybe Ben & Reed being…"

"I actually had this comic for a few years, before my dad tossed out most of my comics collection, such as it was, circa 1972, when my family moved from Long Beach, CA, to Salt Lake City (we were living on a Navy base in Yokuska, Japan, when the mag…"

Fred W. Hill replied to The Baron's discussion Movies I Have Seen Lately
"Too true, just like for kung fu or other action movies they enhance the sound of flesh hitting flesh to an unrealistic degree just as comics use sound effects lettering for the same effect, just dialing up the volume to 11. "

Fred W. Hill replied to Chris Freiberg's discussion The World's Strangest Heroes... The Doom Patrol!
"Certainly appreciate your views, Captain!  I'd never read the original D.P. stories so I didn't have any pre-conceived notions about them when I read Morrison's run.  But on old favorites of mine, I'd had that same…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Chris Freiberg's discussion The World's Strangest Heroes... The Doom Patrol!
"A lot of weird parallels between the Doom Patrol and the X-Men.  I can't recall when I first heard about them -- probably sometime in the early '80s, although I never collected The New Teen Titans.  I did get the TPB collections…"

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.
