Marvel Team-Up #144 (1984): Moon Knight

Spidey and Moon Knight fight White Dragon, a super-powered villain trying to take over Chinatown’s underworld. It’s not a bad story, but it’s not a great one, either.  And the art is terrible.  I don’t hate Greg LaRocque usually, but he phoned this one in. Look at Spidey’s leg, for crissake ..read more

Yet another story that starts, “Wolverine walks into a bar…” We’re nowhere near the point where Wolverine is everywhere all the time, but already the number of appearances is watering down their impact. Nice cover, though ..read more

Amazing Spider-Man #55-56/495-496 (2003): Unintended Consequences

This issue has a very nice plot where Peter Parker takes an interest in protecting a troubled student who lives in a bad neighborhood. That plot is mixed in with more about Ezekiel. A student named Melisa has a brother who was recently released from jail–after being caught stealing a car by Spider-Man. Melissa blames Spider-Man for her brother’s disappearance, and blames Peter Parker for his having stolen the car in the first place–after being flunked out of school by Professor Parker, he felt he was out of legit options. The boy, Josh, is in hiding because Josh owes money to some thugs who a ..read more

THE 2014 EISNERS

Note: This is a reprint of a post from another site that was published on April 19, 2014. It is unedited and unrevised. Time for my annual round up of the major categories of the comic book version of the Oscars, and my thoughts on what they got right (and wrong). Lots of great comics came out last year, but few were Marvel and none were DC. And yet Marvel still got the most nominations for a single book (well, sort of: Hawkeye tied with The Wake). For DC, only Batman got a nom. The “big two” publishers put out more than half of the total comic books published each month—so for them to trail ..read more

Spider-Man’s Tangled Web #22 (2003): Series ends

For the most part, this was an excellent series. It, like the rest of the Spiderverse, is cancelled to make way for a relaunch of all the Spider-Man titles. The final issue is by two unknowns. It’s a story reminiscent of Gotham Central, focusing on cops looking into crimes that are negatively impacted by Spider-Man’s vigilante involvement. Spidey doesn’t appear until the last panel, and that’s in a picture credited to Peter Parker. That picture puts Spider-Man at the scene of a crime, which might be what the cops need to arrest him. The story reads as if there might have been more coming. I ..read more

FANTASTIC FOUR #119: H.E.R.B.I.E. Mach One (1972)

Roy Thomas writes one issue of the FF and it’s…Very weird.  For two reasons. First, Black Panther changes his name to Black Leopard because the term “black panther” in the U.S. “has political connotations.  I neither condemn nor condone those who have taken up the name, but T’Challa is a law unto himself.” Puh-lease. Ben and Johnny go to Wakanda at Black Panther’s request, and they fly commercial. On the way there, terrorists try to hijack the plane and blow it up with a grenade. It has nothing to do with the rest of the story, which is about how Klaw is being a dick and Black “Le ..read more

X-Statix #9 (2003)

The Anarchist is the new leader, and he finds himself on a mission to kill an army of Africans who all have black skin, like he does. It’s a good scene. And the punch line is that he changes all the enemies to caucasians before sending the footage to the media. Also, the team watches some of the dailies from the “X-Statix Movie” that is being made, and for the movie they get a new team-mate: El Guapo ..read more
