"Avengers 219 - Good stuff here. Like the Avengers themselves, the reader has a feeling of foreboding and dread, that all is not right here. It's proven true in the last few pages, to our horror and theirs. …"

Avengers 214 - Not great. All the sublety of a brick, with rushed artwork to boot. The beginning of the end of Tigra's stint on the book, which was…"
"ASM 169 - while I found the previous issues somewhat mediocre as outlined in my post above, I have to say this was a good one. First off, the cover really grabs your attention and would have done what a cover is supposed to do, make me want to…"
"I found these issues a bit of a chore to read through. I read #163-169 in one sitting a few days back, and at times it felt like slogging through oatmeal. I'm sure that it didn't help that a few days prior, I read Lee and…"

ASM 163-164 - I commented on part one a while back, and I'll save you the trouble of looking up what I said then. In a nutshell, I agree with Richard that a Kingpin story where…"

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.
