<t>I guess I took it for granted the origin was based on the original Silver age one. Foolish me as I probably should have inquired how, if anything, the Ultimates version of the character twisted the origin.<br/> <br/> TBH I'm not up on modern Marvel comics or storylines (and by modern I mean late ...

<t>My $.02<br/> <br/> Haven't read Steve Canyon but Terry & The Pirates is a masterpiece. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. His skills evolve and it starts out fairly simply (compared to what it ends up being by the end of his run), but by the second IDW volume, you should be hooked. An exceptiona...

<t>Ok, I went back and looked at it a little closer. I thought two issues were a problem, but it looks like it is mostly just #110, and additionally a few scattered pages here and there.<br/> So it may be closer to 24 pages than 24%.<br/> The vast majority of the book is strong. The higher quality s...
