TIn amazing Spider-Man #17 we have the tale titled “The Return Of the Green Goblin!”. This feature offers a lot of pieces, that all add to the larger tapestry of the issue as well as the ongoing adventures of Spider-Man. From the blunder early in the issue, where spider-man interfere with the filming of a Movie,( a theme that in some ways brings us back to the green goblins last appearance, and also reminds us of other stories) Serves as a starting ground for discrediting Spider-Man.
Though all this Peter Parkers greatest school yard enemy Flash Thompson proves -quite ironically- to be Spider-Mans most loyal fan, and thus pushes for the start of a Fan club. In creating this, Flash with the help of Liz, whom has her own motives sets up a further meeting of the club at a well of club, and prom ices in the newspaper spider-mans arrival. Just the kind of opportunity Green Goblin has been looking for.
So, the club draws out Spider-Man hoping to fix his reputation, Green Goblin hoping to defeat Spider-Man, Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) with his date Doris Evans show up to see the hero, J Jonah Jameson hoping to find something to use against Spider-Man, And if that’s not enough, there is a whole club full of full of fans as well.
But that is not even half of the adventure and thrill in the issue…

Amazing Spider-Man #15, offered us a lot, the cover alone shows us that it is the first appearance of Kraven The Hunter, as well as the return of the Chameleon. But this issue offers us a lot more then just what can be derived from the cover. On the pages in between; we have drama in peter porkers love life, a spider-man faced with dealing with his abilities failing, but possibly most notably the first hint of ‘Mary Jane’ although not named at this point. But I won’t spend to many more words in introduction, please feel free to read on to see my review of this classic comic book. (more…)

At long last, I return to the Fantastic Four with Fantastic Four #6. While it may see like it was a long wait, it was nowhere near as long as the 2 months that people in 1962 would have waited for this September issue.
Two issues ago, they reintroduced the Sub-Mariner. Last issue they introduced Dr.Doom. Now, in just one volume both threat’s are back, and working together to put a stop to the Fantastic Four.

With Fantastic Four #4, we have truly the signs that the series is in its early stages of greatness. this volume is in effect the first time in Fantastic Four that the ending events of the last issue directly effect the next. leaving no feeling of a great loss of time, in #1 to #3, it could be hard to tell how much time has elapsed between the events. it could be days, or months. and most of the time, it has the feeling of being months. perhaps to match the length of time between issue releases? But this time, the events of this issue pick up just a short time after the last.
with the 3 remaining members of the team preparing to search for Johnny Storm, also known as The Human Torch. little can anyone imagine, except for those whom looked at the cover of the issue, that He is going to find another great. one from comics past; The Sub-Mariner Namor. (more…)
