    110989

    THis comic book from March of 40 years past changed my view of comics...too bad for all the crappy reboots and redos and clone sagas and whatever...if it could have stayed contained in this...

    Do you like 1984/1994 so far? I was thinking of collecting them, too. Never read any.

    One of my favorite characters, too. I'm still working on the 70s stuff...can't even imagine going after these first appearance gems. Maybe there are some scans of the stories on the Internet...

    Fond memories of Capt. Marvel #34...got it from a friend in the day, and it was one of those stories I thought was really different, and often re-read it. Years later (was it 1980?) when I picked up...

    Yeh...hate Manga style...but I want to see an beginning, middle and end!

    I'll be the echo chamber for the posts above me. Since I'm from the 70's, I'll add the funky reverb, too. Cool, eh?

    Let people die. Let new people be born. What's so hard to figure out about...

    So are the earlier ones with the defective paint jobs going to become a variant listed for thousands of dollars on Ebay? You know, I was kidding when I wrote that, but now as I think about it...

    Like what I said...but said better! I added earlier vols of Ult. Spidey and X-guys, too, but the Ultimates 1&2 are the anchors.

    I've recommened to others in similar circumstances the better volumes of Ultimate Marvel. I'm thinking she would like the stories and characters of Ultimate Spider-man, Ultimate X-men and the...

    I have the vaguest memory of seeing one Andy Griffith episode where Gomer is seen reading an actual copy of one of the Marvel Family books. It's brief.

    Doesn't sound too bad a premise to me. I say the magic word and I'm back to spinner racks and 5 comics for a dollar. I'll do it.

    Superman Was a Copy of Captain Marvel...

    Well, sort of, maybe. I'm not the first person to note that the good Captain was a lot more powerful than Superman in the early years. Superman's gradual increases in flight, invulnerabilty, strength...

    As a kid, I don't remember more than one or two Underdog comics floating about, but, man, the cartoon was one of the most exciting things happening on Saturday morning T.V. The "Oo, ah-ooo,...

    There was a two part episode of Superman--the Animated Series that featured a full-scale invasion from Darkseid and friends, and the New Gods boom in for a spell. I don't know if you saw it, but I...

    You know all these series that people are talking about in this thread were too short, way too short. It took Kirby 40 issues of FF in order to really hit his stride and begin creating Galactus, the...

    Hah! I wish I was that slick. No, it's a new machine, a combo VCR-DVD. I still have this awful old 19 TV that I need to upgrade. I have this dream of reading digital comics on a 47" screen...
