Couple more sales that end very soon that you may (or may not ... for you MU guys Grin) be interested in, folks.

One, that I will be adding I am sure ... once I make sure the wife allows me to as I have spent way to much this month it being my birthday "month" and all Grin ... is the 22 issues of THIS (Well, the Marvel Team-Up issues I mean)

Also want to buy the Mage stuff HERE as I didn't get into this when it first came out (90's ... *shiver*) but am interested in the idea of Excalibur being in a baseball bat  Cheesy plus I have plans on checking out more than just the "zero" issue of this upcoming and last volume of the title, so I would think I would enjoy a little back story. Maybe I will, but ... yeah ... I doubt it, not right now.

EDIT - Wow, okay, forget the Mage stuff now. I didn't see all those older Amazing Spidey books they have for sale at first glance. Not only the Death of Gwen related 3 issues, but 20 or so issues before that as well!!!!!!

Yeah but what I remember from Reading those 20 issues before the death, is that most of those issues are kind of really trash and garbage. Gwen cries Peters upset lame villains are being introduced, things are just kind of cycling and spiraling around the same events of just Gwen crying and I can't handle Spider-Man nonsense.

Really?
Now I am not the biggest Stan Lee dialog fan, and yes, Gerry Conway's Smasher must be considered for top non-worthy rogue  Cheesy, but having Sr on the art is always worth 99 for me. Plus I tend to enjoy Roy Thomas stuff, when I am feeling nostalgic, especially with Gil Kane art

Yep, those are fine memories for me

For me, it was the start of "Stan's about run out of his Spidey Shtick".

You also had the Gibbon appear.

But seriously, Peter and Gwen together was awful. Her dying was the best thing ever for the character.

But for me, I read these issues as the Black and White Essentials volumes. Art? Just awesome, just awesome. But Gerry Conway just wasn't Stan in his prime.

But man, memories? Memories are the sweetest thing about comics as a kid.

Oh I hear ya. I just can't read a ton of Stan's older (newer) stuff and his earlier (older) stuff I have to be in the right frame of mind ... what that frame is exactly I have no idea
 Grin

But I also agree on Conway (and Gwen). Conway was a good idea man for Marvel, in his short FF run especially, but hit and miss ration for writing is well established, for me at least.

Well I'm going broke. Was going to try and get out with just the Electra Saga run and the Nocenti run, but as I scroll down ... yeah, don't see it happening.

Join me in my bankruptcy?
