"As you all know, my Omnibus priority is stuff that either hasn't been reprinted at all or exceeds that which has already been reprinted in the Archives (all of which I have). But for a little while there I was unemployed, and so let things get…"
"AVENGERS 19 (AUG 65)
"The Coming of ... The Swordsman!"
If you like this swashbuckling fantasy thriller as much as we expect you to, the credit goes to:
Stan Lee, writer
Don Heck, artist
Dick Ayers, inker
But if you're iconoclastic…"
"The Bat-Man, you say? Sounds like he had potential. Too bad he didn't pan out.
I agree, not much of a mystery - neither the murders nor the last page reveal. An OK story at best. It's going to take a few more…"
"The great thing about these Omniboo is that in the span of only a few years, we are getting issues from various series that are being reprinted either:
- for the first time ever, or
- in color for the first time ever, or
- in a tpb for the first…"
"According to the GCD, the Archives got up to volume 10, which covered through issue 92 of the series. So the new Bronze Age volume will be well past them, and it sounds like the first one surpassed them too, ending at 113. "
"Comparing the Avengers to the Justice League is really like the proverbial "apples to oranges". Despite their similarities, the tone, structure, direction and dynamics of the two titles were very different.
Both enjoyable, both…"
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.
