"Superman appears on the covers of Action #1, 7, 10, 13, 15, and 17, and then beginning with #19 he's featured on the cover each month going forward. With issue #9, going forward there's a blurb about Superman whether he appears on…"
"I agree with you, Randy, that both issues are somewhat unfocused but the energy in them just leaps off the page. I found both issues read very much like comic strips, which makes sense considering strips had been around for a few years in 1938…"
"My thoughts on -
ASM 138 - I started reading comics in 1979, so I read Mindworm's 2nd appearance, in Spectacular Spider-Man #35, before I read this story (it was reprinted in Marvel Tales 114 in 1980). The gist of the 1979…"
"Congrats on completing this reading project, Randy. I've been remiss on commenting lately but have been reading along. Here are some final thoughts from me and some questions for you if you wish to respond.
- The series starts out…"
"My thoughts on:
ASM 137 - If you go back a few pages on this thread, you will see that I said mostly positive things about ASM 136. I still stand by that. But part two of this story was just not very good and was a fine example of an…"
"Well done two-parter. Creel has gone toe to toe with Thor many times and the Hulk a few as well but I'm still impressed he holds his own against a whole team of Avengers. Michelinie does not delve into it too deeply here but in…"
"Marvel Tales 114, April 1980
Really only a few small changes - a word balloon moved, the ceiling (?) is now half yellow, the coloring is the window has changed, and Spidey's web is almost out of sight - but makes for a much improved cover…"
"They reprinted the story where he got his wings in the 70s. They just appear one day when he's falling to keep him from landing on rocks. Not the first time he got a power out of nowhere simply because he needed to have it. In…"
"In the 50s a series of stories about the boyhood of Namor appeared in Sub-Mariner Comics. It occurs to me those stories may have been the model for the phase of "Tales of Asgard" where the series was about the boyhood of Thor."
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.
