Re: MARVEL COMICS "JUMPS THE PAGE"

Hey, Chrissy. Long time, no see. (We met some time ago when you & Russ came up to Huntsville.) You might want to dig through Russ' collection for issues of Marvel Age , Marvel's comic-book-sized news 'zine of the '80s & '90s. Andy Mangels used to write an irregular column called "Reel Marvel" (I thi...

Re: Range of Influence of Marvel Time

Really sorry I missed the discussion back when it was new. Chris Batista, who not only drew but also plotted the Spaceknights LS, contacted me back when it was coming out. IIRC, Starlin was brought on because, while Batista was an experienced artist, he was not a proven writer. Unfortunately, Starli...

Re: How did you become a continuity buff?

I'm not sure I can point to anything specific. Also, I'm perhaps not as big a continuity buff as many others here. But if anything, I'd say it stems from coming on board as a Marvel reader shortly before line-wide events like Secret Wars, plus the publishing of things like the OHOTMU. (Sadly, howeve...

Have you given up color-coding events? If not, I recommend purple for this (for ol' purple puss).

Missing Deathlok appearance(s)

I picked up vol. 2 of the Essential Marvel Two-in-One cheap during FCBD. So of course, as I'm reading it, it's inspiring me to check the MCP for some characters. Doing so, I found a missing appearance by Deathlok (the original) in M/TIO 32 (second to last page). Also, I'm wondering if he should be B...

Re: Hulked Out Heroes

Sure enough. Issue #2 establishes that all past scenes are those of an alternate timeline created by Hulkpool when he altered history in 1717. And now that I've picked up both issues, I take back what I said about Devil Dinosaur. #1 subtly lets on and #2 outright says Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy st...

Re: Hulked Out Heroes

Does these scenes "count" as appearances by these characters in the MCP? Hang on - this seems like the sort of story that typically ends by cancelling itself out. We, therefore, can't say until the end of WWHS:HOH 2. And could someone please distribute a memo to let Marvel writers know that Devil D...

Re: Defenders in Rom 65 and 66 and Sub-M2 3

Dr. Strange and Peter Parker also appear in Sub-M2 3 watching the same speech by Namor, (as well as the Fantastic Four [Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, & She-Hulk] and the Defenders [Valkyrie, Moondragon, Iceman, Beast, Angel, & Gargoyle]). Interesting that Dr. Strange & Spider-Man don...

Re: Defenders in Rom 65 and 66 and Sub-M2 3

I just did a careful re-reading of the "New" Defenders issues and in DEF 142 discovered this: Bobby: "Something's strange, Hank--This weather is really strange--even the wind smells funny. * It makes me uncomfortable." Footnote: " * For the inside scoop on this, see the current issue of ROM." Guess...

Re: Spider-Man and the Secret Wars

Just to be the devil's advocate, it is possible that the Denver suburb was just too far for the heroes to travel to when they needed shelter. But, OTOH, it mustn't be too far -- like the other side of the planet -- since Spidey & the Thing had 1-2 days to go off and check on it. Keep in mind that Se...

Re: Spider-Man and the Secret Wars

Here's the thing about Titania's origin from She-Hulk 10- it's not Skeeter remembering her past, it's Zoma telling the story of Skeeter's past to the Champion. So there's room to claim Zoma was an unreliable narrator. I haven't got Spider-Man and the Secret Wars 2 - could you summarize the issue an...

Spider-Man and the Secret Wars

I can't find any past discussion of Spider-Man and the Secret Wars . Was it just assumed by everyone that it was out of continuity or did no one care? After #1, it looked to me like it was up in the air. Issue #2, however, completely contradicts She-Hulk (vol. 3) #10 (S-H3 10) on Titania's origin. S...

Okay, I'm out of the loop. They're doing a prequel to a limited series they never finished??? Has there been any word on actually finishing the original?
