"Flipping through the latest Previews...
AUGUST 1961 OMNIBUS: Includes every Marvel comic published that month, many never before reprinted. It's interesting, but I don't plan to buy it. I'd rather see a more affordably-priced series…"
"Fraser Sherman said:
I remember Roy Thomas saying that one of the things he admired about Stan was that if he got you to work for Marvel with promises you'd have enough business to pay your rent, by god, he'd see you got it.
I think Stan…"
"Robert Bernstein certain wrote for Atlas: O'Hearn has posted was credited in the artist's signature on Black Rider stories he did with Jay Scott Pike. The character is a copy of the Durango Kid, a movie character played by Charles…"
"I'll read some stuff online, but an awful lot of ebooks go on my kindle to die of neglect.
However my library's streaming service has a lot of graphic novels only available that way so I compromise. Sure as heck preferable to spending my…"
""I want to read the issue..."
You know, after I posted yesterday I remembered that these issues are available online and I have read some of them. but reading something on a screen is so antithetical to the act of "reading"…"
"I remember Roy Thomas saying that one of the things he admired about Stan was that if he got you to work for Marvel with promises you'd have enough business to pay your rent, by god, he'd see you got it."
"Apparently, "The Princess in the Atom" in #25 was by Ray Cummings and continued in #26. Martin O'Hearn has a post on Ray Cummings's work on "Captain America" here.
"Golden Girl" from #66 was written by…"
""What makes the fourth particularly compelling? I'm not aware of anything unusual in the later books besides Golden Girl replacing Bucky..."
That, for one thing. I want to read the issue (#66) in which Lavender shoots Bucky and Cap…"
"CAPTAIN AMERICA GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS: Volume 2 has been solicited for June release. It will collect Captain America Comics #13-25. So what, right? Those issues have already been collected in Masterworks format. But it makes me hopeful that third and…"
"I'm confused (but I'm easily confused).
Are you starting your discussion with the first post-Lee/Ditko issue (ST 143), or the first post-Ditko issue (ST 147), or Dr. Strange 169?
I have the first 3 Masterworks, so I can join in…"
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.
