Fluke I found a copy on the stands. More particularly at one I never shopped at at any other time.

I got into Marvel just a few years after the books reprinted in MCIC and Marvel Tales were published. Discovering what came before my entry thrilled me.

FFF Results Post #390 — Inks Over Pencils
On Friday, CR readers were asked to “Name Five Inkers Whose Work You Enjoy Over Five Specific Pencil Artists That Are Different People.” This is how they responded.

Interesting enough choices. Go look!
Spoiler: Depressing part is that it covers nearly every great combo ever, it seems.

Let's Update The Comics By Local Scene List For 2014

Hundreds of creators, many with links to their pages.

derfcityblog: In defense of Howard the Duck

Gerber’s Duck was just brilliant and fantastic.

Problem is, for a corporate character, no one else has been able to recapture Gerber’s magic. Mostly because Gerber was, at his best that good a writer. But also so much of himself was infused into the Duck.

Anyway.

The original FF was so good, it used two Things — rather, a Thing and a second actor as Ben Grimm. And I almost like their Doom better than in the later films.
