Re: FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE

Ah, so! Russ agrees with me about most of this stuff, and especially about Jessica Alba, but it’s nice to get further confirmation. Oh….and I agree! How cool would it be if ALL the Marvel characters lived together in the same movie universe? You’d never know when Dr. Strange was going to pop in on t...

FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE

Hey, everyone! By the subject title, you might think I'm here wanting to talk about the new Fantastic Four movie reboot that's in production right now. But that's not exactly my purpose. I just posted a review of the 2005 Fantastic Four movie in the Marvelous Zone , detailing some of the issues I fi...

Re: HELLO, DAREDEVIL!

Thank you so much for your comment, Paul! When Russ and I started this blog, we had two goals: to provide a forum for "newbies" to Marvel to go through the comics along with me (a sort of "Comics 101")---and also, to give established fans an opportunity to reconnect vicariously with their initial ex...

HELLO, DAREDEVIL!

Hey, everyone! Just wanted to mention that in my blog, Adventures in the Marvelous Zone, this week I meet Daredevil, the Man Without Fear. I like him, but to me it seems there's a lot of deja vu going on. Do you agree...or am I off base? Do you agree...or am I off base? Join me in the Marvelous Zone...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy trailer

Before seeing this trailer, I had only a MILD interest in seeing this movie, because of course it's Marvel, and it's almost unheard of for Marvel to do a movie that isn't absolutely stellar . But seeing this trailer, I am now circling the date on the calendar. THIS is what summer movies are all abou...

A MARVELOUS UPDATE

Hey, everyone! Just want to let you all know there's a new update to Adventures in the Marvelous Zone (link at the bottom of this page.) I'm reviewing FF#18 and a new villain has risen to the very top of my Super-Villain chart. Much to my surprise, I might add. Please feel free to check it out! Than...

Connect the dots, man!

Russ and I believe we have heard the phrase "Connect the dots, man...connect the dots!" in a movie, most probably uttered by a conspiracy theorist, but can't think of what movie this could be from. I asked the question on Yahoo! Answers and got only one reply: spiderman. So...what do you think? Is t...

Re: GENERAL ROSS?

This was my idea exactly: that Ross would be testing weapons to use against the Hulk! At first I thought I would be going out on a limb to say such a thing in my blog, but after hearing these replies, I feel that perhaps that idea is not so preposterous after all! BTW, as for the number of stars, th...

GENERAL ROSS?

Hi, everyone! I was reading JIM #86, which is an early Thor story where Thor first meets up with Zarrko, the Tomorrow Man. I'm planning to write something about this on my blog The Marvelous Zone and began to mention that General Ross makes an appearance (bottom of page 3). Then I checked with Russ ...

Re: MARVEL COMICS "JUMPS THE PAGE"

Christy, Another book that delves into this subject is Spider-Man: The Icon by Steve Saffel, a huge, heavily illustrated coffee table book published by Titan Books in 2007. I received a copy for Christmas. Lots of Marvel media and merchandise are featured, and it's not just restricted to Spidey. Ch...

Re: MARVEL COMICS "JUMPS THE PAGE"

I don't think there's one authoritative book focusing on Marvel in other media, but this gets into it a fair amount: http://www.amazon.com/Marvel-Characters-Universe-Michael-Mallory/dp/0883631091 Thanks for the tip! We actually have this book on the shelf, so I'll take a look at it when I get a cha...

Re: MARVEL COMICS "JUMPS THE PAGE"

Thanks to all who replied. It makes absolute sense that 1) Marvel would have followed the success that DC had, and 2) the first "modern" efforts would have been cartoons. Tho the 1940's serial "shorts" also makes sense, for that day and age. Personally, I think this is a fascinating topic that I wou...

MARVEL COMICS "JUMPS THE PAGE"

First, I should say “I’m new here.” I’m Russ’ wife, and I’ve learned a bit about Marvel Comics from my hubby, though I doubt I’ll ever know as much as you all do! (So you’ll have to pardon me if I might sound a little foolish.) But I hope you will indulge me, because I do have a question I want to p...
