"Waiting to read-along on Adam Strange is fine with me. Reading his omnibus isn't the only thing I'm doing, so I'll get a bit of a head start."

"I don’t want to digress too much, but comics are the world of what if. Just imagine instead of Strange Adventures #244 (October-November, 1973) being the last issue that it continued and #245 (December 1973-January 1974) featured the start of…"

"Start of the Bronze Age generates much more debate, I think, than the start of the SIlver Age (though that generates some). Movie books on film noir do the same thing — there's general agreement classic noir starts with 1940's…"

Hey John. How've you been?
At 10:14am on August 18, 2013, Philip Portelli said…

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
