doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #4: 'Diamonds Are Forever'
"Diamonds Are Forever has a special place in my heart as it is the first Bond film I ever saw in a theatre during its original release. Nostalgia aside I have to admit it is the weakest effort in Connery's run. Only four years had passed since…"

doc photo replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion The Pre-Defenders
"In reference to Tales To Astonish #84, Stan in the Bullpen Bulletins mentioned how fans had been demanding a face off between the two stars of the book. As Jeff notes above, rather than having them meet directly he had them pass by each other in…"

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"I gleaned all of that information from the first paragraph and did not read any further, so feel free to elaborate, doc, if there's more. Another point that stood out was Snelling's observation that the earlier writers brought their…"

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"Why I came here today: I don't think I've mentioned, in any of our recent James Bond discussions, The James Bond Dossier by Kingsley Amis I own a similar book - 007 James Bond: A Report by O.F. Snelling, copyright  April…"

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #3: 'Moonraker'
"Of the first four Bond novels, Moonraker is the best of the bunch with Hugo Drax setting the standard for Bond villains to come. Unfortunately the next book Diamonds Are Forever returns to smugglers and gangsters as adversaries. The movie…"

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #2: 'Live and Let Die'
"Not much I can add other than Live and Let Die is both one of the worst Bond books and one of the worst Bond films. Even as a 007 fan I have zero interest in re-reading or re-watching. I do like the theme song though."

doc photo replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents
"Just a heads up - The Wild, Wild West is currently an "on demand" offering on Pluto. Season Two of the series, originally airing in 1966-67, went camp due to the success of Batman but they righted the ship by Season Three."

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Bond #1: 'Casino Royale': Book, movies, 'Climax!', graphic novel
"I own a two volume set of the English newspaper strips titled The James Bond Omnibus (volumes 001 and 002) published by Titan. With the exception of The Hildebrand Rarity and The Spy Who Loved Me, that appear at the end of the second volume, the…"

doc photo replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion The Silver Age of (Superhero) Comics
"I've always had a problem with Showcase #4 as the start point of the Silver Age due to the amount of time that passed between it and any further significant events. To me, Flash receiving his solo title in 1958 is a more appropriate start point…"

doc photo replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion The Golden Age of Comics
"To the best of my knowledge EC specialized in anthologies featuring stand alone stories. It doesn't seem as if they were geared for books featuring on-going characters. Does the fact that they dealt in anthologies exclusively make them unique…"

doc photo replied to Jeff of Earth-J's discussion The Golden Age of Comics
"Most impressive. It will take a while to digest all that you have suggested. The sales figures are very interesting. The drop in sales from 1954 to 1956 is astonishing. It is a wonder that any of the publishers survived this dark period. Imagine…"

doc photo replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"Agreed. Naturally I'd like to think Bond made it out but who knows. Reading the acknowledgements I was a little disappointed to read that this is most likely Horowitz' final Bond novel as I really enjoyed both With A Mind To Kill and…"
Dec 17, 2022
doc photo replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"With A Mind To Kill. Wow! What an ending. Bond's "assignment" from the covert Russian group seemed to place him in a no win situation. How he makes it out and his subsequent attempt to return to the West had me on the edge of my seat.…"

doc photo replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
""At this point in his career 007 seems to be near the end of the line mentally and physically." I didn't want to discuss the end because I wasn't sure whether or not you had finished reading.  Say no more - I just finished…"

doc photo replied to Alan M.'s discussion So, What Are You Reading These Days? (besides comics)
"I am not sure where best to place my comments on the latest Bond book. I have added it here as well as under the Bond DVD thread. Sorry for the confusion... With A Mind To Kill. Good timing Jeff. I started reading Horowitz' latest Bond entry…"

doc photo replied to Captain Comics's discussion Does anyone have James Bond DVDs or Blu-rays?
"With A Mind To Kill. Good timing Jeff !  I started reading Horowitz' latest Bond entry a couple days ago and it is a good one. It pulled me in right from the start with M's funeral. Love all the references to the early Fleming novels.…"
