Fred W. Hill replied to Steve W's discussion A Cover a Day
"Yep.  Most comics companies of the era, particularly after the CCA was created, didn't allow for much creative freedom for their artists & writers and tended to be very formulaic.  To my understanding, Charlton allowed more than…"

"In Batman's case, it can't really be said that he was taken from his creators' intentions as to my knowledge Bob Kane was very much involved in these sort of zany stories involving bizarre aliens and that had little to do with Batman…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Mr. Silver Age's discussion Entertainment Weekly's Stan Lee Tribute
"A bit funny thinking about Stan's rise to fame & fortune, becoming one of the most famed comics writers by the 1960s when he was in his 40s but still hardly known outside of comics fandom, and in the early '60s he was balding and…"

"Seems since Lee & Kirby revived the concept with the same superhero name but different alter ego, background and setting, no one felt it was worth the bother to use the original character and figure out how he might be linked to both the new…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion Stan Lee deserves huge credit for gIving hope to the marginalized
"Yes, and Lee certainly influenced many other writers who helped expand the field in the 1970s, such as Thomas, Englehart, Gerber, McGregor, O'Neil, just to name a few, which, in turn, allowed for even more innovative writers such as Moore,…"

"Wow!  Great column, Captain!  I was certainly one of those lonely kids, terrible at sports and very introverted, when I latched onto Marvel Comics in the late '60s -- those mags spoke to me in a way DC comics never did, and Stan had…"

Fred W. Hill replied to ClarkKent_DC's discussion Stan Lee 1922-2018, R.I.P.
"Although I didn't start collecting comics regularly (as in getting several titles regularly every month, or nearly so) until 1973, I came to love Marvel Comics when I was six years old in 1968 and quickly came to associate Stan Lee with the…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Daredevil' Season 3 mixes and matches stories from the comics
"Great rundown, Captain!  Haven't followed Daredevil since about 1987 (when I seriously curtailed my comics collecting), not too long after the Born Again epic.  Many aspects of the Netflix series I recognized from Miller's runs…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Richard Willis's discussion Daredevil Season 3
"Last Saturday night, a couple of friends and I stayed up to about 2 a.m. (which was really 1 a.m. due to the Daylight Savings Time switcheroo). By then we'd gotten up to episode 12 but decided to hold off on the final episode 'til later in…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Steve W's discussion A Cover a Day
"The cover art looks like a weird mix of Jack Kirby & Bob Kane, clearly a crude attempt to cash in on the popularity of the Batman tv show as well as Marvel Comics (and maybe get a few "kids" who remembered the original Captain Marvel…"

"Clearly Jim Starlin liked the sparkle-effect Ditko added to Captain Atom's flight path, which Starlin added to Captain Marvel after the Kree's "Metamorphosis" in C.M. #29."

"Something about Dr. Double X's costume makes me think the biggest danger he'd pose to Batman would be that old Bruce might bust a gut laughing at that extremely silly looking costume.  And the name isn't quite the sort to fill a…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion Prep for 'Iron Fist' Season 2 with the best Iron Fist stories
"Strangely or not, I only got into Master of Kung Fu and Iron Fist after the kung fu fad had mostly faded, circa 1977.  Admittedly, part of it was that I had a somewhat bigger allowance and thus more money to buy more comics than in…"

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.
