"The art for #185 and #186 is top notch. Great covers, great interiors.
My first issue is coming up soon (#188), so I have no great attachment to the idea of the Whizzer and Miss Marvel being the parents. What's amazing to me is…"
"I agree that this two-parter was sloppy and convoluted. The Grizzly was a dud of a villain (how many animal based foes does Spidey have anyway?) and should have been portrayed more sympathetically. Jonah ruined his career just to sell…"
"Also, I don't think it's been noted in this thread, but there's a Golden Age Green Arrow Omnibus coming up, too -- with LOTS of unreprinted material, as the GA GA never had an archive! Here's the listing on Amazon:
"Well, here's a fine thing. I just checked my Wonder Woman Archives, and as expected, they include all Sensation and Wonder Woman comics up through the second Omnibus. But they do NOT include ANY Comics Cavalcade WW Stories, which the Omniboo…"
"Right on both being from the same mini-series, Captain.
But Angel and Dumb Bunny (now being called Tough Bunny) were only half-sisters sharing the same father. Bunny's mother was the amazon or pseudo-amazon Princess Power so Angel got nothing…"
"I was stunned when some book somewhere -- I think the first Angel and the Ape miniseries -- established that Sam Simeon (ha!) was from Gorilla City. Well, duh, of course he is! I had never even thought he needed explanation, so I never thought about…"
"Yeah, pretty much the climax of the book was Lois gritting her teeth and convincing Angel to stay strong as they worked to dismantle the heart of the alien structure, as the temperature and pressure inside threatened to overwhelm them. "
"I read it for the first time right off tge stands, when I was 8, and that definitely cokors my perception. And yet I read it again a few years ago, and I felt it really held up. I loved seeing the lesser known characters get the spotlight, and I…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
