avengers67Latest additon: Avengers 67 from 1969. I think it’s the 2nd appearance of Ultron. Picked it up cheap on Ebay, looks to me like about a 60-6.5. Looks great for about 45 years old! I read it the other night, this was the beginning of the era where Roy Thomas was doing a lot of writing, and Stan had become the editor. Early Barry Smith art in this issue, too. Surprised it’s not selling for more. Good for me!

Time for another random Thor cover.  I love the dialogue on this one:

I Say Thee Nay!

Makes me wonder how they’re going to handle dialogue in the new thor flick…?

Well, for me anyway. Stopped by my (sorta) local comic shop in wyoming (MI) and picked up what they had pulled for me. Thor, Cap, and Hellblazer, and then I picked up a few issues for fun. I can’t resist a Hulk/Thing smash-up, so I grabbed Hulk #19, even tho I’m not into the whole red Hulk storyline. Speaking of the Thing, I’m gonna give FF a try. Haven’t bought them in years. I wasn’t into the millar years, primarily because I didn’t like the artist. So we’ll see….#576 is my first Hickman episode.
Also: The Marvels Project (anything by Brubaker gets my attention), Blackest Night #7, and “Eye of the Camera” #7 finally came out I see.

Time for another random Thor cover, too, while I’m at it:

Journey Into Mystery 112

I was thinking about the best comic story arcs that I remember.  Of course, a lot of these sprout from my early adolescence, but many of them hold up fairly well today (even in the age of the bloodthirsty, take-no-prisoners antihero).

Sure, there’s a ton out there, but here’s some off the top of my head:

The death of Gwen Stacey in Amazing Spider-Man.

Thor being defeated by Hercules and then rescuing him from the Underworld.

The “coming of the Over-Mind” storyline from FF.

The Kree-Skrull war storyline from Avengers.

Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The Trial of the Flash.

Don McGregor’s Black Panther/Killmonger run.

Sure, there’s a bazillion different storylines out there.  These are just some that come to mind.  All of them had the hallmark of a great serial, anxiously waiting for the next installment.

Thor #126

Thor #126

I always liked the Kirby Thor, especially my all-time favorite story, where Hercules defeats Thor, but gets into trouble and gets sent to the underworld, and Thor rescues him.  Great Stuff.
