"Well, I wrote about FANTASTIC FOUR #6 here! Fantastic Four Fantastic Four #1-102, FF Annual #1-6 I could have sworn we had a discussion thread of the early Fantastic Four, but I haven't been able to find it."

""Supergirl" appeared in Action Comics #252-#376 (1959-1969). That's not quite as many issues as it sounds, as the run included reprint giants. It replaced the long-running "Tommy Tomorrow" and became the sole co-feature…"

"In my case I think the Atlas suspense stories are something I enjoyed in my midteens. They are far from EC because of the Comics Code. The Ditko stories in Amazing are similar in tone to the original Twilight Zone show. You had to be there."

Hey John. How've you been?

Hello John,

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.

With all respect and best wishes,

Philip
