Power Man #31

Power Man #31

Knocked out saving Manhattan from poison gas, Power Man finds himself at the mercy of Piranha Jones and Cockroach Hamilton. A lackluster comic from Don McGregor, Sal Buscema and The Crusty Bunkers. [More]

Captain America #180

Captain America #180

Still disgusted with American politics but ready to return to superheroing, Steve Rogers becomes the Nomad. An enjoyable comic and interesting new direction for this title from the team of Steve Englehart, Sal Buscema and Vince Colletta. [More]

Marvel Two-in-One #8

Marvel Two-in-One #8

Miracle Man converts an Indian reservation into Bethlehem in a plot to one-up God in the Immaculate Conception department. This typically madcap Steve Gerber outing fails to suspend readers’ disbelief, while the journeyman effort from Sal Buscema and Mike Espositio does little to raise this Christmas tale out of the eggnog.

Conan the Barbarian #23

Conan the Barbarian #23

The Avengers #132

The Avengers #132

Captain America #155

Captain America #155

Now insane, the Captain America and Bucky of the 1950s plot to capture the real Cap and girlfriend Sharon Carter. Steve Englehart does a great job bringing the 1950s Cap into the Bronze Age, with solid art support from Sal Buscema. [More]

Conan the Barbarian #2

Conan the Barbarian #2

When Conan is captured by beast-men and pressed into slavery, you know a slave revolt can’t be far behind. This issue is pretty typical barbarian fare from Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith — keeping in mind, of course, that Conan helped to define such barbarian fare. [More]

Conan the Barbarian #21

Conan the Barbarian #21

Conan leaves the Turanians to serve Makkalet, but winds up double-crossed — and at the mercy of a toad god! This grim-and-gritty tale features fine work from Roy Thomas and a not-yet-masterful Barry Windsor-Smith. [More]

The Spectacular Spider-Man #10

The Spectacular Spider-Man #10

Spider-Man and the White Tiger battle — but eventually figure out they should be fighting on the same side. Shocker! The conclusion to this two-parter by Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema is a little too convenient, but this issue is mostly good fun. [More]
