FANTASTIC FOUR #303

IMG_1200

In this period, the Fantastic Four comic focused intensely on cross-promotion.  At the expense of content.

GREAT COVERS!

DD #200 by John Byrne and Terry Austin.  Really cool comic, too–Bullseye is in a hospital bed and Murdock is telling him what a shithead he is.

FANTASTIC FOUR #301 and 302

While I do like Roger Stern quite a bit, I’m not really enjoying his FF run very much. In these two issues, Franklin starts getting powers again.

AVENGERS #278-279: We Need a New Leader!

IMG_1247 IMG_1249

I just love the way Buscema draws Cap.  Does that make me gay?

Anyway, Wasp quits and the search for a new leader begins.  Captain Marvel accepts.

It turned her into an insufferable bitch in the Funniest Comic Of All Time, NextWAVE…

AVENGERS #273-277: Under Siege

IMG_1233

Here is one of the most celebrated Avengers story in history…And one of the best of Roger Stern’s long, well-regarded run.  A whole mess of Avengers baddies finally figure out that if they band together they might actually be able to defeat the A team.

It also leads directly into the “Assault on Olympus” storyline.  Hercules doesn’t like takin’ orders from the ladies so goes off all mad like he’s drunk or somethin’ and ends up going to the hospital.  But the main storyline is about this team of villains taking over Avengers Mansion.

It’s a well constructed extended battle scene.  And this is my favorite panel from the entire story:

Oh, and Arnim Zola dies…

We all know he comes back to life later.  But that doesn’t stop Cap from shedding manly tears.

Has Cap ever cried in a comic book before or since?

CAPTAIN AMERICA by Frank Miller

JOKER #9

And that’s it.  The final issue is a sendup of Jerry Springer, almost 20 years before the Springer show ever even aired.  That’s how genius this book was.
