Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I'd only ever read about Fleischer's Spectre stories, mainly in TCJ but also online, but from what I've seen, the Spectre had a perverse sense of "poetic justice" under Fleischer, revenge fantasies gone wild with a being of…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I do recall reading that unfavorable review although I hadn't previously heard of any connection between that and the lawsuit, but that theory certainly seems plausible.  I admit that although some of the opinions expressed in TCJ could be…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"Led me to diversify my comics collecting as well.  As to the Fleischer controversy, I happened to miss the issue with that interview with Ellison, but I think Fleischer's lawsuit itself did a hell of a lot more damage to his reputation…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Gene Phillips's discussion Any Opinions on the COMICS JOURNAL Magazine?
"I read The Comics Journal regularly during the '80s and most of the 90s, at least while I could find it in comics stores or book stores.  Anyhow, it seriously expanded my knowledge about comics and exposed me to a wide variety of opinions…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'Falcon and Winter Soldier' episode 3: Just who are these guys, anyway?
"In the comics, Sharon Carter was Peggy's sister, as revealed in Captain America & the Falcon issue 162 which I purchased when it was new on the racks in 1973.  Of course, back then it was stretching things too much for a character who…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Thor
"I remember that cover to Thor #121 being advertised in many other titles in December 1973, and the next month it was Amazing Spider-Man #131, wherein Doc Ock & Aunt May almost tied the knot.  Those two issues always remind me of the winter…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Ditko Doctor Strange
"The Stern & Rogers run on Dr, Strange is a classic.  Great writing and great art, with some humor as well as heart-wrenching moments, and bringing greater depth to the Master of the Mystic Arts as a flawed and vulnerable human being,…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Fantastic Four
"Regarding that paycheck -- exactly how were Ben & Johnny in particular earning money?  Were they both so independently wealthy when they got their super-powers that earning money wasn't a concern for them at all? Or, ahem, were they…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Captain Comics's discussion 'WandaVision' episode 9 left us with questions. We've got answers!
"As a long-time comic who loved the Avengers most when Wanda & the Vision were part of the team back in the 1970s, and had stopped reading Avengers a bit before Byrne had the Vision dismantled, I thoroughly enjoyed WandaVision.  Really…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Fantastic Four
"Personally, I approved of the change, even if it only lasted for the period of the FF's dysfunctional era.  Although I'd gotten a few late Kirby-era issues of the FF, my main collection didn't really begin until Roy took over…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Fantastic Four
"Nor really my very first issue of the FF, but the first in my collection started after my family had moved from Long Beach, CA, to Salt Lake City, UT, during which my dad had thrown out all of the comics I had previously collected, which I remember…"

Fred W. Hill replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion Post-Kirby Fantastic Four
"Totally agree on the difference between this and the original Galactus trilogy, having first read both in the giant Treasury editions.  Kirby's Galactus also tended to appear more stoic, doing what he had to do, but not a raging…"

"Brunner is a magnificent artist and his particular style was clearly more time-consuming than most. Pity that resulted in his run on the newly established title being rather short.  At least for the length of the run of this 2nd series of Dr.…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrs.sandraessien@yahoo.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
