A Week of Captain America – Captain America #110

A Jim Steranko Cover – that’s absolutely fantastic and classic – and that’s Rick Jones as Bucky.  Rick remains with cap for the next 6 issues – but it’s this issue that you see HOW Rick came to be the new Bucky.  You also get to see the Hulk and Cap tussle for a bit. Continue reading “A Week of Captain America – Captain America #110”

A Week of the Defenders – Silver Surfer #58 and Thanos: Infinity Abyss #2

Some of the Defender’s appearances are literally a few pages long – these two issues are a perfect example of this.  In Silver Surfer #58 – the Defenders aren’t actually attacking their sometime team mate.  Instead Surfer is being made to see the Defenders but the Surfer does not fall for the trick for veryContinue reading “A Week of the Defenders – Silver Surfer #58 and Thanos: Infinity Abyss #2”

Hulk: Future Imperfect (1992) – The Review

This is one of those stories that I read at least once a year.  It’s that good!  It has surprises and twists on practically every page – right down to Rick Jones “trophy” room filled with the fallen superheroes memorabilia.  I will try to review the story without giving away too much – but it’sContinue reading “Hulk: Future Imperfect (1992) – The Review”

Ground Zero (1988) – The Review

Peter David gave us this absolute gem of a storyline. McFarlane helped with his amazing art in this one… and it would turn out to be his swan song for the Hulk. There’s an interesting behind the scenes story that made the rounds about McFarlane and David’s working relationship. The story goes: When David beganContinue reading “Ground Zero (1988) – The Review”

A Week of the Defenders! Marvel Feature Presents #1-#3 (1971)

This, technically, is the first appearance of the Defenders… I say technically because, well, I’ll get into that later. First let’s start with these three – Marvel Feature Presents – the first time the group is dubbed “The Defenders” – named by… hmmm – a good question for a no prize! Oh – who amContinue reading “A Week of the Defenders! Marvel Feature Presents #1-#3 (1971)”

The Eternals #14-16 (1977)

Jack Kirby wrote and drew this inventive series about immortal superheroes – and funny enough – they never fought the Hulk. The cover above may be misleading – or confusing you – but it’s true. See, at the Maryland Institute of Technology, 2 students are creating a Hulk robot as a mascot, but when the Uni-MindContinue reading “The Eternals #14-16 (1977)”

A Week of the Defenders! Defenders #1 (1972)

What a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving week!  I will showcase one of the most dysfunctional group to ever grace the pages of a Marvel Comic!  A team that changed members more than I change my underwear… I mean – forget that last statement.  Here is the Defenders #1 – but keep in mind thatContinue reading “A Week of the Defenders! Defenders #1 (1972)”

Tim Sale Fast Pass Sketch – ’09 Boston Comic Con

As soon as I learned that Tim Sale was going to be at the Boston Comic Con I went to his site and checked it out.  I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Hulk: Gray series – but it was not for the art – in fact, the art is what saved the series fromContinue reading “Tim Sale Fast Pass Sketch – ’09 Boston Comic Con”

The Incredible Hulk #604 (2009) – The Review

The Incredible Hulk #604 I can tell I am getting impatient about the Hulk’s return – because I wasn’t even excited about picking this issue up. Don’t get me wrong – I love that Pak is back – but he’s not writing the Hulk. There are two Hulk comics being released a month – one doesn’tContinue reading “The Incredible Hulk #604 (2009) – The Review”
