"I have been working my way through The Wrath of the Spectre omnibus, too. So far I've read through #4 of his solo series and plan to post something more comprehensive when I've finished (but my priority right now is Green Lantern). I had…"
"Just to prove that I'm not always negative, I just got the Spectre Omnibus, and moved it to the front of the line, and although I've only read the first couple of stories, they are as good as I remember from decades ago. I'm impressed…"
""...but where do you draw that line?"
Here's how it breaks down (ROUGHLY) or me:
Anything beyond that is "Modern Age"
Regarding an Adam Strange discussion, if someone else wants…"
"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…"
"Judgement call: obviously not a headliner, but does Rose and Thorn sneak in as originating in the Silver Age? She debuted as a back-up in Lois Lane #105, October, 1970.
I lean toward “not Silver Age,” but where do you draw…"
"I would follow an Adam Strange thread, as I do with most, although I don’t often chime in. I could keep up with you until MIS #84 where Showcase Presents ends, as well as the Strange Adventures reprints from the early 70s,…"
"I'd be up for it. I just read Fadeaway Doom — I'm working through it at about one story every week or two as part of a Silver Age reread — but I can always go back and reread something if I need to refresh my memory."
"I am currently reading SA GL OMNI v2 (and "sneak reading" The Wrath of the Spectre omnibus), but I am always thinking ahead as to what to read next. Regarding...
GA BM OMNI v8: I bought that one a week or two ago, too.
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.
