"The art for #185 and #186 is top notch.  Great covers, great interiors. My first issue is coming up soon (#188), so I have no great attachment to the idea of the Whizzer and Miss Marvel being the parents.  What's amazing to me is…"

"I agree that this two-parter was sloppy and convoluted.  The Grizzly was a dud of a villain (how many animal based foes does Spidey have anyway?) and should have been portrayed more sympathetically.  Jonah ruined his career just to sell…"

Thank you for the kind words, Richard. They really made my day! I am very grateful for the amount of interests in my threads, though the success of the JLA/JSA ones are surely due to the affections we have to the subject not my meager commentary.

If you are interested, I have several sub headings: "I Was Wondering", "Silver Sightings" and "Fan of Bronze".

Great to have you here and thanks again!
