in this issue we have another one of the stories in the series of “The Wonderful Wasp Tells A Tale” this one titled “Conquest“. in this tale we see a ruler driven to conquest to earn the admiration of his people, and just what that leads too for him.
like the other stories in this series it is quite interesting and entertaining, this one in particular i felt was quite well drawn, and left me wondering both how it would end, and what the moral would end up being.
That is the key of all these short tales, there is something about life, or society that I feel they have to say; this one about war and conquest. but if you have gotten your hand on this wonderful tale, i would love to hear what you think about it.

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?

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.

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.

This tale, has the Wasp telling her story to Dr. Pym before leaving for the Veterans Hospital, giving us a slightly different backdrop, but helping to maintain the ongoing concept for the wasp tells a tale series.
The story she tells though, is just as entertaining as the last few though; being a tale of a far off alien planet, where a powerful warlord feeds off the superstitions of the people he conquers. But can their ever be truth built into the beliefs of such Peoples? (more…)

For today’s comic book review i read Tales To Astonish #53, where we have an Giant-Man feature that includes the return of The Porcupine. Now as you may remember from my review of Tales To Astonish #48, I was not to trilled with the porcupine or his first appearance. So now we will get to find out if his return sticks on me any better, or if this is another tale I would want to forget?

For today’s comic book review I read Tales To Astonish #52, starting Giant-Man and The Wonderful Wasp! Just from the cover of the classic comic book I seen great promise, and not just from the words, but also from the clean appearance. but is the tale titled “The Black Knight Strikes!” meant to be a good one? or is it something that should have been forgotten by history?

In addition to the Giant-Man and The Wasp super hero feature, starting in this issue, The wonderful Wasp would get her own tale, or at least the job of telling one. I could tell you what this is all about in my own words, but I would just assume quote the comic.
When she’s not on a case with Giant-Man, Janet Van Dyne devotes a great deal of time visiting veterans’ hospitals’ and orphans’ homes, entertaining the shut-ins with imaginative tales of fantasy as only she can tell them!
And this is a lead in for the story she presents “Somewhere Waits A Wobbow!” in some ways this is a great combination of the types of stories that filled Tales To Astonish before and alongside our hero’s up to now, just giving the narrator a voice and face from the super-hero side of things, combining the two aspects of the book in an interesting way. and giving us a great Story in A Story.
