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…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"The disconnect between the Silver Surfer as portrayed and intended by Kirby in his first several appearances in the FF were so different from the Silver Surfer as depicted by John Buscema and written by Stan Lee that it was essentially a different…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"Nice try, Jeff!  Alas, Lee was essentially spinning his wheels on the Surfer, with no genuinely compelling idea of what to do with him to make a successful ongoing series.  At least Norrin Radd was finally freed up so that someone else…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"I didn't include those since they came a bit later in the '80s.  Simonson's Thor was excellent.  Another later entry for the '80s for Marvel I'd rate highly was the Silver Surfer, initially by Englehart &…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"Overall, Miller's Daredevil and Claremont & Byrne's X-Men were the best Marvel comics of the late '70s/early '80s."
Sep 21
Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"Possible, although I've never read an explanation, and if it was imposed on Steranko, that would have been either by Lee or Goodman, but that still leaves the question of "why?"  Perhaps it was something to do with whether…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Mantle's discussion AVENGERS. "And There Came ANOTHER Day..."
"But would the Yellow Claw meet the Yellowjacket?  I think by this point in the Marvel Age, Yellow Claw had appeared in 4 storylines -- in SHIELD/Strange Tales in 1967, even if that version turned out to be Dr. Doom (which really made no sense…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Frank Miller Daredevil
"A few of Marv Wolfman's stories and Jim Shooter's had been taking DD in that direction in the years prior to Miller coming onboard, but of course Miller steered the title that much more into crime/noir stories, with ninjas and some…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Hoy Murphy's discussion Three of a Kind
"Gotta say, just from the cover image, looks like the then new Avengers are going to get creamed by the original team.  Hank might do ok against his alternate self and Hawkeye might hold his own against Iron Man, but the chances of Cap beating…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion Movie/TV tropes I try to ignore
"Yep.  When I lived in Crete, Greece, I had a couple of cats that died and in each case I had a very difficult time digging holes in the very rocky land big enough to bury them (and although I lived in a very rural area, near the coast, in an…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Thomas Lupo's discussion The Boys dropped on Amazon Prime 7-26-19.
"Hadn't even heard of the comic when, while visiting with a friend of mine, he suggested watching it and we watched a few episodes that night and the others last Tuesday.  My friend, by the way, is 64, never read comics but loves superhero…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion Movie/TV tropes I try to ignore
"I really hate it when a character is behaving abysmally stupid in such a manner, particularly in confronting someone they know is a very nasty S.O.B. who would kill his own mother just for kicks.  It's like the character is going to the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion Movie/TV tropes I try to ignore
"About 20 years ago I was working a security detail on a grave yard shift at a condominium complex along Ponte Vedra Beach, just south of Jacksonville, Florida.  During my patrols, I'd walk behind the complex near the beach -- facing the…"

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.
