The problem was apparently that Marvel didn't want to spend the money on thicker covers.  The problem was apparently that Marvel didn't want to spend the money on <covers that worked>.?

Anyone seen this before? Apparently, it was in an issue of Steranko's Mediascene. Artwork by Dan Adkins, design by Steranko. Hulk Smash, Adkins & Steranko.jpgI know this is (mainly) Adkins, but I think Steranko drew one of the very best versions of the Hulk in Captain America #110 and on the co...

Re: Vintage Marvel

Deej, many thanks for the Rampaging Hulk scans.  You’ve convinced me that I’m up for a collection of this material.  I could have bought all this off the newsstand at the time, but was choosing to spend my B&W dollars on other titles.  I think it just goes back to me being a Tales of Suspense reader...

And how did you come to work for Marvel after college?  Who did the interviewing and the hiring, and what was that like?  What kind of work and projects did you do there at the start that led to taking over the Masterworks line?  Who had the brainstorm to re-start the line, and what kind of role di...

Ray, you pretty much hit it for me as well.  I’m happy to have such a faithful version of these characters from my childhood on the big screen in my lifetime.  The trailer brought me the same feeling I used to get as an eight year old in 1966 wondering what the next issue of my favorite Marvel title...

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR JUNE 2018!!!

 Arguably the greatest Ant-Man pages of all time, Comic Book Artist #3 has a feature on Neal Adams' Marvel work, and the Ant-Man/Vision pages are described as " Maybe the finest sequence in super-hero comics ". Amazing Spider-Man #33 pages 1-5 will always top my list, but Avengers #93 is certainly ...

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR JUNE 2018!!!

Cory somehow needs to also squeeze in the first chapter of Avengers #93. It's basically Ant-Man's finest hour (courtesy of Neal Adams) - how can you leave it out ? Good call. I'm not sure I see the case for omitting that while including the Champions issues but, I'm sure there is a school of though...

I’m happy to see a change, although I don’t know much about the new guy.  Brevoort is the only editor on staff I would have thought of.  I haven’t enjoyed much of Marvel’s output lately, even though I’ve really wanted to.   (Spider-Man is a notable exception for me).  Certainly not since they suspen...

Amazingly, only Rawhide, Sgt.

I think that Spider-Woman is a lock, and Sgt. Fury is >50%, because the Severin...
