In this issue, we learn of one thing that the watcher sacrifice’s for his oath and duty, how non interference can extend to love itself. it is a sad tale, of how he must forsake love; and live with that, but not without its flaws. In this issue, we see the watcher, “show himself” to the aliens on the distant world. the purpose, to intervene without doing anything. this task works, he saves the life of a Queen, and had to not even lift a finger. However, I pose, is this not ‘interfering?’ is there not a flaw in the way the watcher lives out his oath, of watching, more so given he can watch without being seen? Any of you who have read the Tales of the Watcher feature from Takes Of Suspense #56, I would love to hear what you think (more…)

The Man Called Electro!
For today’s comic book review I read Amazing Spider-Man #9,the story contained within is titled “The Man Called Electro!” And it is a Spider-Man thriller like none before, as Steve Ditko and Stan lee raised the stakes on this one. Not only do we have the action pack trills of Spider-Man facing Electro, not only do we have the drama of high school, young love, and the pressure of media attacks on Spider-Man, but we have something much more important; Aunt May is sick, in fact deathly ill.
Can Peter Help his aunt, deal with the pressures around him, and all while Spider-Man saves the day? Or are we in for a shock of our lifetime with reading this electrifying story? (more…)
Fantastic Four #8

Prisoners of the Puppet Master
Including Fantastic Four #8 we are up to 4 out of 8 issues that the Fantastic Four are described as being Prisoner’s. if anything I am seeing this as a theme for what the early Fantastic Four stories where about, them being captured, in part or as a whole and finding their way free.
This issue of Fantastic Four, is one of the best I reviewed so far. It had development and depth that the story has needed. Also it introduces a classic Super Villain, the Puppet Master, as well as Alicia Masters.
