Incredible Hulk #6
Vs. The Metal Master!

October 22, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

As I sat down to read Incredible Hulk #6, the last comic book of the original Incredible Hulk run, I wondered what kind of story I would be in for. Would it be a story suitable for the end of a series, and perhaps a character? would I feel a scene of conclusion?  Did they even know at the time of writing and publishing that this would be the last issue?

I can’t say or speculate at what they did or didn’t know. But as an ending,  I was quite satisfied. So read on and see how my comic book review of Incredible Hulk #6 went. and pick up the last of the original Incredible hulk’s in reprint and read it for yourselves in Incredible Hulk, Vol. 1 (Marvel Masterworks).  The collected volume includes all six issues of the original incredible hulk run.

Strange Tales #103
Prisoner of the 5th Dimension

September 30, 2011 | Drew | (2 Comments)

Strange tales #103 where the human Torch is the prisoner of the 5th dimension, was a well written, and fairly well drawn story.  This time, the little care needed to explain why he is investigating this alone is taken.

just 1 panel, greatly helped this story fit in with a level of acceptability with the other Fantastic Four stories.  everything from there falls into place.

Journey Into Mystery #83
Thor the Mighty! and The Stone Men from Saturn

September 9, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

A big title for a short story,  the ‘Journey Into Mystery’ comics would feature a few stories in each, but all I have the luxury of reviewing is ‘Thor the Mighty! and “The Stone Men from Saturn”‘. This 13 page short is the first appearance of The Mighty Thor, and serves at the origin story for how Dr. Don Blake  by chance, luck of fate becomes him.

In fact, from issue #83 on, the title ‘Journey Into Mystery’ Would feature Thor, and grow into being a comic about our favorite Norse god. But these 13 pages is where it all begin’s for him. In them we see a wonderful showcase of Dr. Blake learning what powers he possesses as Thor as well as saving the earth from an invasion of Stone Men whom come from Saturn of all places.

Incredible Hulk #2
the Terror of the Toad Men!

September 7, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

What can I say, how should I start this one-off.   I went into reading Issue #2 having come from Incredible Hulk #1 with high hopes. Having highly liked everything about the first volume, how could I expect anything less than greatness?

Perhaps I am being hard or requesting too much out of the older books, Both Jack & Stan were worked hard, and in my opinion, not compensated near enough for what they did do. That being said. The Incredible Hulk #2 left me with taste of disappointment.  (more…)

Fantastic Four #2
Skrulls From Outer Space

Fantastic Four #2

For the Fantastic Four, what comes after stopping an invasion from below? Stopping one from above of course.  Last Issue, the Fantastic Four Come onto the scene out of nowhere to save the Earth from the Mole Man, This time, it’s the Skrulls that is the threat.

Also in the time between the last issue and this, while not directly mentioned. it seems the Fantastic Four went public with whom they are. Perhaps due to causing so much havoc and confusion in their own rights before saving the day from an unknown threat?  But I find this, undiscussed coming out of the  Hero closet is key to the story. Read it, and you will see. (more…)
