Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #454

So, I was too lazy to do a top-ten list for 2017, but if you’re interested you can do it for me: just go here , look for the “Archives” section over on the left, read all 52 of my weekly comics reviews for the year, and decide from that.

Fresh Eyes on Old Books #15 by Dan!

And we’re back!  This week will be a special “dead Marvel characters” week at Fresh Eyes, so let’s see what I picked out.  Oh! Spoilers ahead, don’t forget that. Strange Tales #105 from 1962 There’s nothing quite like a book where all the main good guys and bad guys do is narrate at each other.  “I’m doing this!” “Well, I’m doing this which leads to this!”  If people actually talked like this, I think we’d all be in a much better place, free of sarcasm and snark.  The main story is all about the Human Torch in his huge battle … Continue reading
