I can’t believe it’s only a dollar!

In News, Events, Comics by admin

One time there was this guy who was really good at buying stuff. He went to a store, and he was like “Pshhhhh. This is 5 bucks? Really? Make it a dollar, and I’ll buy it, otherwise, I won’t.” The shop owner looked at him and thought “What an idiot.” But later that night, the shop owner thought about it, and decided to price those items a dollar. The next …

Oh yeah, by the way, Gotham Newsstand is cool. You want to know why? Because four score and seven years ago, I got an itch in my beard, and out fell a puzzle piece with a mysterious circle on it. There were the letters …

The Threat #1 and #2

In Comics, Reviews by admin

This comic has a very captivating high concept. By 2085, the government has collapsed, and cities become fiefdoms of warlords, warlords sporting money and planning moves from skyscraper’s window offices: corporations. It’s a comic expressing a very Houstonian feeling, the glue and resentment binding the economy together. Oil corporations have easy access for gulf operations, and have set up offices across its downtown across from a wealth of locally owned …

[this post covers Spectacular Spider-man #178-200, 215-219, Amazing #365-396, Web of Spider-man #117-119, Spider-man #51-53] Allright, allright, I just started to read the clone saga, and it all went to crazyville. I opened Web #117, which Marvel reprints as the first installment of The Clone Saga in their 11 volume, $440 retail reprinting crusade, and was flustered: The first page is Peter meeting his clone. Cast back into earlier issues …

[this post covers Spectacular Spider-man Annual 8 and Spectacular Spider-man 149] When last we left the clones, Gwen’s duplicate had wandered off into anonymity, Spider-man’s clone had still not been seen since an explosion, and Spider-man had torn up the documents affirming whether or not he was the natural born Peter Parker.

I had planned just to read the Clone Saga issues reprinted in Marvel’s recently published “THE ORIGINAL CLONE SAGA” TP, and was left scratching my head and wondering the backstory of all these characters that only have small explanations. It’s weird that these stories don’t have nearly as in depth back issue summaries, either. Bill Mantlo, the writer of this Spectacular Spider-man …
