"I'm impressed so far......but... I worry if there is an audience/market and if they know to watch. Are the apparent lack of 'villains' and the constant 'is it real or not' question enough to carry the narrative and the…"

"I hope you are going to cover GS Super-Heroes #1, for the reasons Richard Willis spelled out.  It feels like it is part of the ASM title to me.  The Giant-Size Spider-Man title really should have been called GS Marvel Team-Up as all five…"

"Catching up, part two: ASM 132: I agree with Richard Mantle, this does feel old-fashioned, but I like it.  At times the art calls back the mid 60s, and I can also see reminders of Romita Senior's last stint on ASM (#106-125). …"

"Excellent points, John.  As a 12 year old reading the story in 1974, I don't believe I noted the discrepancies in Spidey's lack of sufficient skill to drive a dune buggy in one issue but able to pilot a jet in the very next with no…"

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!
