Tales to astonish #60

October 8, 2014 | Drew | (No Comments)

The tale for Giant-Man and the wasp (although just barely) for Tales To Astonish#60 is a communist fighting adventure titled  “The Beast Of Berlin”.  In this tale,  Giant-man goes off alone (after telling her for the first time about how his wife died) to Communist controlled Berlin to rescue a friend captured by the communist as well as deal with the threat of a powerful weapon that he leaned about from the same friend.

Tales To Astonish #59
Enter: The Hulk

March 17, 2014 | Drew | (No Comments)

Having just finished reading Tales To Astonish #59 I find myself asking, who is more the star of this tale,  Giant-Man or Hulk.  You see, up until this Issue, Giant-Man with his side-kick (I almost hate calling wasp a side-kick)  have been the featured hero’s of the series.  As of late often with a Wasp side story  following the main tale,  but as this issue so wonderfully announces, starting with the next issue, the Hulk gets a feature in Tales To Astonish, along side Giant-Man.

You see, the hulk proved to have a popular fan base, after the cancelling of his own title just six issues into it, and in fact, at this point, the Hulk would have been a featured Guest  in as many comic’s as he had in his own title that ended over a year before this issue.   Even not counting Fantastic Four #12 (as it came out before Hulks series was cancelled) , we have Avengers #1 though #3,  Fantastic Four #25 & #26 (likely the biggest Hulk Story so far, and one of the first real cross over events of comics. then Avengers #5 before vanishing for a couple months  to appear in Spider-Man #14.  Why bring all this up? other then to say that Hulk has been all over the place, and in big stories.   Is that each of them (while not his title) he played a central role,  more then that of any antagonist in those  comic book’s;   in fact in character development, he  sometimes has more then the star’s of the book’s themselves.

Tales To Astonish #58
The Coming Of... Colossus

March 20, 2013 | Drew | (No Comments)

For tales To astonish’s feature story we have Giant-Man and the The wasp take on Colossus, a giant twice the size of Gaint-Man!  But in this trilling adventure taking place in the made up Bora-Boru Region of Africa, where a group of natives have taken to worshiping the 30 foot tall Colossus, can  Giant man manage to vanquish his foe?   Also In this issue, we have a new method for our hero’s to change their size,  as Hank Pym managed to modify his cybernetic helmet to aid him and thus allow size changes to happen at the speed of thought.   Lastly, the wasp gets a new costume in this issue;   one that Captain America in his all to short appearance takes a liking too.

Tales To Astonish #57
On The Trail of The Amazing Spider-Man

October 24, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

It seems in my last several classic comic book reviews, we have seen a lot of Hero Vs. Hero action.  from Spider-Man and the Hulk  to X-Men Vs Fantastic Four, and now Giant-Man and the Wasp face off against Spider-Man.  Every time, we see this kind of action, their are challenges  and concerns that must be addressed, even more so as a reviewer. Is it original? are both sides true to there characters? or do we just have some group of hero’s fighting another for the sake of sales and marketing?  The last few, I feel have been good, this one, I feel starts off weak; but I will get to that in my review below, first a short summary.

In this issue, Egghead tricks the ants into relaying a false message to giant-man.  one that states that Spider-Man is out to attack Giant-man! can our hero’s clear up this conflict before it’s too late? (more…)

The Coming Of The Magician!

In this issue, just as the cover promises, we see Giant-Man using his power to his advantage, and then just as the last tale foretold, we get the hint of a looming proposal from hank Pym to Janet van Dyne.   But will this story be as magical as we hope, or just a bunch of tricks?

Tales To Astonish #55
On The Trail Of The Human Top!

July 4, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

In tales To astonish #55 we have Hank Pym as both Giant-Man and Ant-man using his skills along with the assistance of Janet Van Dyne to stop the Human Top for the second time. The first time was in Tales To Astonish #50 and #51.  But what does their second encounter have in store for us?  and what of the words on the cover “How can the Human Top be beaten when he too can grow as big as Giant-man??” but then, the real question I have going in to read it, is this issue a Giant Tease or Giant Success.

Tales To Astonish #54
No Place To Hide

July 2, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

This comic book review is for the Giant-man & Wasp story featured in Tales To Astonish #54, titled “No Place To Hide”. This tale features our hero’s after they are asked by the US Government to investigate a governmental change in the small nation of Santo Rico, and its new leader “El Toro!”

But is “no Place To Hide” worth the read?  does El Toro prove to be a worthy threat? and what is meant by the title, “No Place to Hide!”. these are all good questions as you begin to read my review, or flip though the story yourself.
