Well I haven't been participating much in the 30 Days of Winter posts school stuff making it hard but I had to make sure to chime in on this day.

Not quite sure if this fits exactly since it's not really comics for LGBTQ readers but it does feature a Gay character so I'll assume it's okay.

Back in 2004 Marvel Team Up had a 25 issue run ending in 2006 just prior to Civil War. Written by Robert Kirkman (of Invincible fame) it had many fun little odd team-ups with the like of say Punisher and Blade "teaming" up and so on. Lots of fun. But my memories of the series will always be of one awesome character who was introduced at the very end of the run in issue 20 his name : Freedom Ring.

He didn't have quite a good end and many readers were outraged at his final fate but without getting into the broohaha that was his end let's see how his story began and the fun the character was.

7 pages from issue 20
5 pages from 21

Each from 22 page stories

Scott Lang was Marvel's second Ant-Man and (by my calculations) the person who had the name and the suit for the longest time. He's someone I'd like to see more of around here*, so to contribute to that and to One Perfect Moment week, here is one of his early adventures.

It's from Marvel Team-Up #103 (March 1981), by David Michelinie (writer), Jerry Bingham (penciler), Mike Esposito (inker), Diana Albers (letterer), and Bob Sharen (colorist). The story is called "The Assassin Academy" and, as the title of the comic and the post indicates, involves him teaming up with Spider-Man.

6 pages and 3 panels from a 22-page story.

tags that we don't have on-comm (but could have at delicious, maybe?) - creator:jerry_bingham, creator:mike_esposito, creator:diana_albers, creator:bob_sharen

* could one of the tag wranglers or mods please add the 'char: ant-man/scott lang' tag to this Heroes for Hire post? It could also do with a 'char: power man/luke cage' tag.

I think this is all the tags except Nova since I'm not sure which one this is. Whichever one is younger than Spidey. If someone tells me I'll add him in.

As a group of colorful fellows come gunning for Iron Man and Spider-Man, Spidey provides a lecture in fight etiquette. With helpfully numbered subheadings.

People have been very generous about responding to my requests for vintage Marvel Team-Up, so I thought I'd respond with the issue that got me into the title in the first place. As it happens, it's a holiday story -- "Small Miracles," by J.M. DeMatteis and Kerry Gamill, issue 127. The main team-up is Spidey and Uatu (... sort of), but there's a brief cameo for you Cap fans as well.

[personal profile] skalja requested some old-school Marvel Team-Up. For your sampling pleasure today I've selected four issues from 1977, #s 59, 60, 61 and 62, by Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Dave Hunt.

I loved the old MTU series for its meticulous attention to continuity; it wove the team-ups around the characters' own series, yet still flowed smoothly from one story to another itself; and, as you'll see here, it was a great place to pick up and expand upon dropped plot threads and start new ones. The tricky bit here is that the individual stories are only 17 pages long, which my trusty calculator tells me makes for 5 and a half postable pages. And the plots are kind of all over the place, so this may be a bit tricky to follow, but I shall try to fill in the gaps.

We start with #59, guest starring Yellowjacket and the Wasp, titled "Some Say Spidey Will Die By Fire...Some Say By Ice!" BTW, this issue is "dedicated - with respect and admiration - to Roy Thomas." I know not why.
Seventies Spidey could not catch an even break. Ever. )

So. What'd you guys think of the trip down memory lane?
