We're into the home stretch, folks! I've submitted what I could get my hands on, but there's still two books without volunteers.

The WILD ANGELS/MARVEL TOP 6 thing I'm sure is something that will just be floating around forever, unless it's ever reprinted in English. Or if someone translated it. I think this one may be doomed to forever be on the Checklist.

HOWARD THE DUCK HOLIDAY SPECIAL (1997) however... anyone have this?

I do ... somewhere. It may take me a few days to dig it out though. If no else gets to it first, I'll do the analysis.

I've always been intrigued by that book, so I've just ordered it through Ebay Italia. It probably will take several weeks before it gets here, but I'm willing to do an analysis as soon as I've read it. My italian is probably not good enough to translate the whole thing, but I should be able to understand what's going on.

That's called 'Above and Beyond' sir. Thanks!

If you run into some translating problems, this place:

http://translation2.paralink.com/

is pretty good. It can translate whole sentences! Just select what language you're using, and what language you want translated, type it in and there you go.

Thanks again, Frederic!

Speaking of foreign stories, did the three stories collected in Panini's "Marvel Europa" TPB ever get analyzed? I remember the French Wolverine story ("Saudade") did, but there are foreign Spidey and Daredevil stories in there too.

"Marvel Europa" translates the three stories into English. I ordered it and it's on its way ... it should arrive in 2-3 weeks, so maybe I can lend a hand if nobody else has analyzed those other two.

I can't find anything here for the Spider-Man & Daredevil stories. It looks like they're yours!

Nice avatar, by the way. :)

Posts get sent to the Archives after a while. If the topic hasn't been posted to since (currently) December 2006, it'll have gone there. Do you remember the exact thread title? That would make it easier to find.

Found it - "Venice" was enough.

It's in Archive 72 ("Message threads ending in June, 2006.") , thread 32, title "Spider-Man in Venedig (Panini Comics)"

Cool, so all that's needed is an analysis of "Daredevil: Dead on Arrival".

I recently bought the french comics Nova #25-26 from Lug Editions wich contain an original Silver Surfer story.
Would you guys be interested in an analysis?

For more info on that story, see http://www.twomorrows.com/alterego/arti ... urfer.html

Sorry for stealing Hobgoblin Lives, Starman. I got myself into a Spider-Man mood this weekend. :oops: :) Thanks again for the Spider-Man/Spider-Man 2099 analysis!

I was all ready to call this a wrap, but then I found a couple more missing books. Anybody have those Marvel Fanfares, the Power Pack Special, or the last issue of Fantastic Force? 'Cause I don't.

I look forward to that original Silver Surfer story analysis from the French Nova series, Giant Ant. Thanks again for telling us about it!

As it turns out I was able to track down these last few issues over the weekend, so I have them covered.

So that's it folks! Thanks for the help in nailing these down, it's greatly appreciated!
