Marvel Feature #1

Marvel Feature #1

Red Sonja investigates an ancient temple within the Darkwood and soon finds herself battling an “unhuman horde.” The lead feature by Roy Thomas and Dick Giordano is good, but the reprint backup – featuring art by Esteban Maroto, Neal Adams and Ernie Chan – is the real treat. [More]

DC Special #11

DC Special #11

Despite a nice Neal Adams/Bernie Wrightson cover and a pair Jack Kirby reprints, this collection of stories from House of Mystery just isn’t very scary. Cool? Yes. Scary? No. [More]

Ironjaw #1

Ironjaw #1

Ironjaw saves a wench — to use for his own “companionship” — but the duo falls prey to betrayal and royal intrigue. With its preponderance of barbarian clichés and over-the-top sexist dialogue, this relic of the ’70s is strangely enjoyable. Michael Fleisher, Mike Sekowsky and Jack Abel are to blame. [More]

Ms. Mystic #1

Ms. Mystic #1

The Science Investigation Agency accidentally opens an interdimensional rift, gaining a powerful ally who can help protect the environment. Neal Adams’ ham-handed environmental message mars a dynamic return to interior pencil work. [More]

Review: Amazing Adventures #8       

Thor faces off with the Inhumans, while Black Widow battles the Watchlord. Roy Thomas pens both tales, with art by Neal Adams and Don Heck. [More]

Review: Green Lantern #89                   

When Green Lantern and Green Arrow encounter an eco-activist/terrorist named Isaac, both heroes learn a lesson about blind faith. Neal Adams art is excellent, but Denny O’Neil’s script lacks subtlety. [More]

Review: Planet of Vampires #2             

Astronaut Cris Galland and crew convince savage tribes of post-apocalyptic humans to unite against the “blood-sucking dome dwellers.” Not original and poorly scripted, this Atlas (Seaboard) comic from John Albano, Pat Broderick and Frank McLaughlin is still a lot of fun. [More]

Review: Imagine #1                               

Like the Image comics of the 1990s, Star*Reach’s anthology titles like Imagine often let star artists experiment with writing — and the results could be just as self-indulgent. This issue includes work by Neal Adams, Marshall Rogers, Dave Sim and others. [More]

Review: The Charlton Bullseye #5             

This Charlton house magazine from Bob Layton’s CPL/Gang Publications features The Question by Roger Stern, Michael Uslan and Alex Toth, and Doomsday +1 from John Byrne. If only Charlton’s regular lineup was that good. [More]

Amazing Adventures #5

Amazing Adventures #5

Roy Thomas, Neal Adams and Tom Palmer team on an Inhumans adventure, while Thomas, Gene Colan and Bill Everett deliver a downbeat Christmas for the Black Widow. Needless to say, this is a very well-drawn issue. [More]
