Seven Is Usually My Lucky Number 0

This issue I'm not sure what they were going with. I mean Conan saves a chick but she's mean and petty. I know Roy Thomas can write better than this. Maybe it;s the whole sword and sorcery thing. This story just read long. I fel if a story does that than it doesn't work for me. I was astonished it took me twice as long toread this  and it has less words than other Conan issues I have reviewed. Ok so we know the monster is a serpent and it killed the people it needed to that deserved it. I don't ...

Part Of A Trilogy 0

This issue of course was made when Dc and comics were printing 4-5 million copies and everyone thought of buying 2 issues or more you know 1 to read and 2 or more for college funds.This is part of what i call the trilogy of Superman Death/Without/Return.I'm not up to speed with this arc. I have Death and Return in tradesNot bad those stories aren't.This single issue though I believe was needed . It shows our heroes trying the best they can do to get on without Supes. I also think back to that wo...

An Average Fight 0

This is right after the fantastic story of Snake-Eyes origin. This just lead up to an all out battle between the Joes and Cobra. More action less story really. Don't get me wrong I know the GI Joe comics is battles in weapons against Cobra and or Dreadnots or whatever. This issue was a battle climax to a ho hum buildup. Not that I'm not a Joe fan I am. I remember picking up my first G.I.Joe comic I was 7 and went with my grandparents to pick up a bearded colloie with them it was issue number 2. ...

Well Worth It 0

This is just one of the reasons us 80's kids love GI Joe. Mr. Hama can write well meaningful stories. This mythology and history he wrote for this series is well regarded. We love Snake-eyes and Hama made him a story well built and still needing answers to questions yet unlike in Wolverine where Marvel decided to give us an definitive origin here its clearly shown less is more . I don't want to know all about Snake give me enough to know and we'll leave it at that. The art and story blend so wel...

Say What? 0

So after this issue it seams more like a chick sorcery hearts and flowers type boo. Ok Amethyst is upset at not being a 13 year old on earth but Gemworld is ruled like monarchies and people are betraying her and she hates being there what the hell? No wonder we wonder about little girls who think they are fat or not pretty or whatever. They share the same as Amethyst self concious. Get over it. The maxi-series was written well. The main series well tapers off not really interested in how this al...

Too Much Too Little 0

This issue we know the last issue is coming. However there was to me too much action and too much going by. I mean couldn't we have more revelations to explain it all for everyone to figure out the what's and the why's. That being said . nI wish I had more of this maybe i will down the road to understand this. This has really surprised me. I thought this would be hearts and flowers but I am really surprised  that they made Amethyst to be a strong female charachter . Not like todays women with bi...

Batastic Read 0

This is why graphics and trades need to be published. Whether it's the $50 hardcover or these that reprints stories at in reasonable price it works. You get the history and incarnations and people's take on Batman. You get the grim late30's to the cheesy 50's and back to the dark era we still have now. The stories that were picked I feel are the best of the best. However the Joker has his own book too. That's where we will see more of him which is fine. I wish the would do more like that you kno...

Magneto vs. Apocalypse 0

While its been a while fear not RK is back had some issues that needed to be addressed. This is the third issue of this What If? timeline/story. Magneto is in the rain talking to Xavier's grave of course Apocalyse attacks with a big fight which is well written but then in the middle a pause and the X-men return and find Magneto and Nanny and little Charles Lensherrall gone. Quicksilver goes to Angel for answers. and everything is coming close to an end and conclusion.Not too bad of a read a litt...

Aunt May In The Park 0

This one I found at one of those Follar trees. They have 2 comics and a trading card. Mostly G.I. Joe cards I have some Return O f The Jedi cards too. Nonetheless this issue i justreread. Not that bad. It's just Aunt May sitting in the park talking and recapping . I think this is a new jump start for new or returning readers. Here Spidey takes on the Shaker and May well she's buying a cell phone. So the whole story is Petefighting Shaker and May telling Ben and Pete's parents grave that he is Sp...

A Quick Return For a Villian 0

This issue we get mostly Peter. He goes to visit his aunt and friends so they know he's alright.Meanwhile Mary Jane begins her career as a gogo dancer and takes pictures for people whose tables have stars on them. She does not suspect the shots help confuse people and another machine helps to brainwash them. Little do we know till the last panel the man behind this scheme is the Kingpin. Okay this was easy to read it's mostly a Peter issue getting back to his supporting cast. Just a quick breath...

From 1 Fight To Another 0

Not crazy about this issue. After Zabu beat him and Ka--zar picked him up , Spidey finally recovers from his amnesia? Say what!? Only in comic books. So Spidey tell Ka-zar and he believes him. J. Jonah Jameson gets a call from Smythe about his SSpider Slayer robot and of course JJJ has to play with it because he hates the wall-crawler.After this wouldn't you think that peter would have had enough and decided to kick JJJ's butt ? Personally boss or noboss anyone who attacks me is an enemy whether...

Marvel Is Where Our Hereos Fight 0

Okay this issue was fun. We get amesiatic Spidey and we get Marvel's answer to Tarzan, Ka-Zar. Ka-zar comes into to NY but it's not really stated why he is there( It's assumed that J.Jonah Jameson wanted him there but not proven). Jameson gets to Ka=zar's suite and appeals to the lord of the jungle who will go and hunt down our wall-crawler. Meanwhile Aunt May over does it again worrying about Peter and she collapses for the billionth time.. Eventually of course Ka-zar finds Spidey and he and hi...

The Government Is The Hero This Issue 0

Chalk this one to good old Stan's writing. Spidey has amnsia and is coerced into a brief life of crime thanks to Dr. Octopus. Even though they work together for a short while Spidey's insides are trying to tell him not to obey. Along the way he does some "heroic" things subliminally. He left a map at the army base and every type of government looking to retrieve the nullifer is there. Of course amnesiatic Spidey has it up to here with tentacle boy and another fight. However at this point the arm...

And I Thought Venom Was Tough 0

So we begin this issue with a very vindictive Spidey. Or is it a case of Spidey pmsing (sorry ladies).So he goes on a witch hunt for Doc Ock. Who is hidden somewhere else while Spidey fights henchmen after henchmen. We then see John Jameson in a meeting   describing plans to take the nullifer to Stark Industries. Plan backfires because Doc has a spy in there and of course it leads to Doc getting the nullifer and Spidey getting hammered by the nullifer which causes him to not know who he is. What...

Only An Annual Has This Type Of Schlock 0

Ok we get for this Spidey and Human Torch fight because Spidey is a nitwit. Ok maybe he didn't heed his spider sense because it did not go off. So of course Spidey takes pictures and then a movie studio "want" both heroes. It was a nice idea that Stan and the crew of Spider-man and His Amazing friends took from, also used Mysterio for that one too. Artwork done by Larry Lieber you know Stan's brother whose ok  but they wanted us to wait till the end to know who drew it. The story and the pace wa...

The Final Nail In The Coffin 0

Well it's finally here in my hands. The last issue of this series. I still need to track down #14. So as we go i always write this as I go.We get 2 series in the book. Both 8 pages of Count Dracula which is about the Count right before Bram Stroker's book . 8 pages of Dracula 2199 which is about Dracula resurrected in the future and taking on sciientists who rule the world. We also get 8 pages of Bernie Wrightson's unused Frankenstein art. Both stories written by Rickey ShanklinCount Dracula - L...

A Mystery Story 0

This issue is definatly a decent story. We meet The Big Man who is he?  We don't get an origin as to why he did it. We get the guy to organize all crime (how many times does Marvel do this).Of course crime runs rampant. Meanwhile Aunt May recovers from her sugery and blood transplant from Peter (did they do a What If to this?). Of course she goes on a vaction  with the neigbors(kinky if you ask me). Peter works on the crime and runs into the Enforcers who beat him up only to beat them later in t...

We Get A Return From Him? 0

So the first villian to return is the Vulture. Say WHAT!? Ok i give him props as an early Spidey foe but should he not be dead yet.  So of course the cliches happen model citizen ,stealing parts from the shop escaping prisonby flying over the wall. meanwhile Peter has to feign being a weakling at school and of course the radio comes on with the report Vulture has escaped. So Pete dons his Spidey duds and gets defeated by our green bird. Plus Spidey is injured. The Vulture decides he wants the Da...

Why? 0

Ok so re-reading my Marvel Masterworks copy of Spidey this one i felt was the least intriguing. Spidey takes on Doom ugh! Ok Doom good for Fantastic 4 or every 150 and 250 issue of Iron Man. For Spidey he seemed a little out of character and quite idiotic like he was dumbed down or maybe like me after being intimate having a blonde moment.Of course the same old in every issue JJ hating Spidey and Peter's school mates loving Spidey and Flash Thompson always picking on Peter(he was useless in the ...

Another Spidey Foe Debuts 0

I have to admit this issue while being cheesey is good. Cheese isn't lame it's goofey and lame but it gets you to laugh.So we in this issue Peter breaking a date(more troubles) We get a villian beating Spidey and uh oh Spidey's mask torn(yay more problems). Of course we get Sandman's origion and it's still gamma and nuclear involved(not surprised)Then in this story Sandman hides in Peter's school by coincidence and wants his high school diploma? He didn't ask for it in the movie nor was he actua...

Spidey's Big Education 0

Ok So everyone knows this issue. It's the first of Doc Ock. I truley believe he's tops in Spidey's enemies list. We see Doc Ock get injured. Somehow his brain is damaged due to radiation(huh) . I think something else and I don't think anyone else has theorized it but I'm betting Doc is  and doesn't know he's bipolar. So of course J.J.Jameson needs photos for The Daily Bugle (no mention of NOW Magazine) get with it Stan. Spidey get's noticed by Doc who "defeats" him  Only to have Peter kinda get ...

Spidey Practices Ageism 0

In this issue Peter needs a job so he takes pictures of The Vulture who of course steals jewelry and cash and whatnot. He comes out of nowhere. Don't you think an old man flying would be incontinent or have IBS? Seriously it was better than what I thought . The second story however just didn't do a thing for me. I understand the era but early Spidey fighting aliens still seems far fetched even with all the alien races in the Marvel Universe. This issue does introduce a major Spidey villian even ...

Issue #1 . Following where Amazing Fantasy ened off. We get a new series on Web-head. Here we find him and his aunt May (poor old aunt May) in finacial crisis which follows him to the present. He has girl troubles and school troubles with other teens. We meet J. Jonah Jameson the main protaganist in this series.. We also get problems on topofproblems for Spidey. I believe that's the main reason we love and like him. We see him save John Jameson and blamed for making the mission a failure. We the...

This issue like the last few have only had the stroies Dracula 2199 and Count Dracula. I'm not sure why Death Dreams was took out, It was mostly self contained. But we get more Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein art. Of course both stories are 8 pages long and in black and white. Dracula 2199 - After the revelations from last issue where else can thi...

2 Bites To Go 0

What a nice way to begin this issue.We start with a wicked drawing of Dracula by Bernie Wrightson. As for the standards if you've been with me through this all. You all know usually there are 3 stories associated with this book. There is Count Dracula (his timeright before Stroker wrote his book), Death Dreams Of Dracula ( missing for a few issues) and Dracula 2199( Drac is resurrected and is now close to a final showdown with the leaders of the world the scientists).  This time we get Count Dra...

To Bad The End Is Near 0

Issue 16 this one is a short read. Just 2 stories this time . Dracula 2199 and Count Dracula. We alsoget some Bernie Wrightson lost Frankenstein art. Alas no Death Dreams of Dracula. Does it mean that series is done?. Just 2 eight page stories. The usual with Rickey Shanklin writing both and in black and white. Still think this was an under rated series. Too bad Apple went bankrupt too. Dracula 2199 - Stemming from last issues chapter , Dracula has convinced the muslim nation he is Al Muddaththi...
