PHA-BLAMM

looks pretty good, the art is alright, it's a bit cheesy, but that's kind of expected, i like the fact he has one human hand and one alien hand, asymmetry ftw ;) not sure about his feet though they look kind of stupid.

That's a lot of covers.

Has anyone actually been keeping up with these?

Here's a review for the first issue of The Traveler.

Refer me to three stan lee stories that are genuinely well written.



Can't be serious.

Google a character called Spider-Man. It's not particularly popular as a comic these days, but Stan Lee's original run as writer defined modern superheroes. Full stop.

Kay, I actually read all the issues of Soldier Zero that are out so far (six) and I thought they were pretty cool. Has anyone else read it or any of the other two "Stan Lee Presents" titles and, if so, would you recommend them?

Btw, this cover is pretty bad-ass.

Dude, cut it out.

You can't be a comic fan and say Stan Lee sucks at the same time.

It's like being a cinephile and while hating Alfred Hitchcock.

I'll admit that I like the Strange Tales Doctor Strange stuff, but a huge contributing factor is Ditko's art, and I also like the entire original run of FF, especially the coming of galactus, but again, Kirby's art plays a huge role in my opinion of the book. What strikes me as funny is that when I asked for good Stan Lee stories, I thought someone would mention something from one of those, as I would agree that they are good, but it seems to me that a lot of comic fans just blindly worship stan lee without actually reading anything by him. The original X-men run is painful to get through.

Dude, some of us don't have the time, the money, or the country to read golden/silver age comics, so that's a contributing factor as to why someone wouldn't tell you specifically what Stan Lee stories are good.

But I remember you once criticized Lee because his dialogue boxes explained everything, failing to understand that the comic book demographic (at that time) was CHILDREN, and also, that a prime characteristic of golden/silver age comics, was to explain everything ! Lee wasn't the only one who did that, even to this day you see writers that do the exact same shit.

Fact is, the man created 90% of Marvel's most succesful characters, and revolutionized comics with incredible ideas, maybe the guy wasn't the best writer at the time, but at that era you were measured more by "what was behind" your creations.

I don't see why he had to explain everything when you could clearly see what was happening in the art. Iron Man is putting on his suit? I can see that. He's flying through the sky now? I can see that too. If you look at people like Will Eisner and some of the 60's Action Comics writers you'll see that it wasn't commonplace to write like that, it was just Stan.

Like I said, maybe he wasn't the best, but he sure as hell wasn't the only one he explained things like that, don't fool yourself.
