When last we left Jessica Drew she had either accidentally killed her first love after leaving the high evolutionary, or awoken from an 11 year coma, and confronted by General Wyndam. Six of one half a dozen of another I guess. Now it is time to learn how she joined Hydra and found love with her fellow operative Jared.

2 Pages of Marvel Spotlight #32, 7 Pages, 2 panels of Origins #2.

HAIL HYDRA! )

Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.



This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

Hi folks, let's go back to 1974 and the country of Vietnam. A country that had seen far too much war, and was about to see more.



"Wait," you say, "The Slasher? Who he?" He's also known as Buzzsaw and Razorblade, and this is his debut appearance. Six pages of eighteen in Avengers #130.

The Reality Problem! )

Interesting trivia: Bill Mantlo did the colors for this issue.

Hi folks!

Back in the day, Marvel Comics had a "no late shipping" rule. If it looked like a writer or artist wasn't going to get their work in by deadline, the editor would slip in a filler story prepared in advance. Some of them were good, others not so much.



I'll let you decide which one this is. Six pages of eighteen, plus a treat.

Lo, the Eternity Man Cometh! )

Here's another classic gem from Bill Mantlo's run in The Incredible Hulk, which saw Bruce Banner for the first time taking control of the Hulk's body and power. It was the start of a new age for the green goliath and has influenced every custodian of the character ever since.

In the previous issue, we were introduced to the new Red Guardian, Arthur Nagan was an asshole, Chondu got a makeover, and Valkyrie got arrested.

So now it's time for the final chapter of the Nighthawk's Brain saga, The Defenders #36.



Five pages of seventeen, and an ad.

A Garden of Earthly Demise )

Your thoughts and comments, especially as this is the end of the post series?

Next time--something that isn't Seventies Marvel.

In the previous issue, Nebulon unveiled his plan to help humanity through Celestial Mind Control, which manages to be even skeevier than it sounds. Valkyrie voiced her objections to strip-searching, and Chondu demonstrated that being in the body of a fawn doesn;t make him harmless.

So, five pages from seventeen of "The Defenders" #35, plus a Hostess ad.



Arthur Nagan is an asshole. )

Next time: The conclusion of the Nighthawk's Brain plotline.

Last issue, we learned that Jack Norriss' mind is in Chondu's brain, which is in Kyle Richmond's body. Chondu's mind is in Bambi's brain and body. Kyle Richmond's mind is in his own brain, which is in a shallow dish. The other Defender's minds are in their own brains and bodies, but may not be right any more. The Headmen's HQ is in ruins, and Nebulon is back in town.

Which brings us up to The Defenders #34, five pages of seventeen (nrrgh) and dessert.



I Think We're All Bozos In This Book! )

Next time:. Chondu gets a makeover!

Hi again!

Last issue, the Defenders learned whose brain was residing in Nighthawk's skull. Nighthawk recapped his origin, and the Defenders were knocked out by Ruby Tuesday.

Now, let's look at six pages of eighteen (and dessert) from "The Defenders" #33.



Bambi returns! )

Next time: Nebulon's plan to save the world!

Hello again!

In the previous issue of The Defenders, we saw Kyle (Nighthawk) Richmond be captured by the Headmen, who transplanted the brain of Chondu the Mystic into his skull. Chondu infiltrated the Defenders, but tipped his hand too early, allowing him to be captured by our heroes.

Now, issue #32. Six pages of eighteen, plus dessert (and I mean that a bit more literally this time.)



So if your friend is acting out of character, who do you call? )

Next time--The return of Bambi!

Hi, folks!

Given recent Spider-Man events (if you haven't already heard, you may want to come back later) I decided you folks might like to see how this sort of plotline has been handled by Marvel in the past.

In specific, the "Nighthawk's Brain" arc in "The Defenders" starting in #67.



Six pages of eighteen, plus a dessert.

Subplots! Lots of subplots! )

Next time, more mind boggling madness!

Until then, Happy Thanksgiving!

And now I take you back to the dim and distant past... well, 1983 at any rate, and no, I do not wish to know whether you were alive or not yet at that time... let's just say I was, and this was bought at the time... As we meet some new Spaceknights on a mission...

Firstly please excuse the quality of the scans, the comics themselves are 28 years old and have been much read! :)

So this is another of my "Accentuate the Positive" posts, a glimpse into the past at some story or concept I thought was well presented, to prevent me making another angry post about current comics (Though I'll still post about the good ones of those I find too of course)



Enemies? Sometimes. Rivals? ALWAYS! )

For more, check out the tags, or go here for Part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, and part 6.

Let me explain--no, there is too much, let me sum up: The Wraiths, in an attempt to insinuate themselves more closely into ROM's life, presumably to stir up mischief later, replaced Steve Jackson and tried to get Brandy to marry the fake. ROM and the real Steve barely broke up the wedding in time, and now many of the people of Clairton, West Virginia, know the truth behind ROM and his mission to earth.
22 pages out of 66 and 3 covers out of 3 behind the cut )
