Bio: I have been reading comics since 1972. I am a fan of the traditional capes and tights type heroes. I am also a huge fan of the pulps and classic Sci-Fi & Fantasy. I came out of the time of things like Phillip Jose Farmer's "biographies" of Tarzan and Doc Savage, his "Weird Heroes" anthologies, Steranko's "Red Tide" GN which were rooted heavily in the pulps.  Englehart, Gerber, Moench, Claremont, Wolfman and others were expanding comics with titles like Man-Thing, Master of Kung-Fu, Tomb of  Dracula, Deathlok and X-Men. It was a great time to be a fan.

July 20, 2011 7:53 pm I agre 110%. This is how Marvel should treat every property. It was both true to the roots and fresh. Good writers can do both. The art was as fun to look at as Jim Steranko's.

July 9, 2011 8:02 pm With the Cap movie all about it HYDRA seems likely. That is the only thing that sounds good to me.
July 5, 2011 10:48 pm I know some of this is the stuff from the old magazine Marvel published. Welcome indeed.
June 22, 2011 6:04 pm Not being a hardcore Flash fan this, for me, was worth the $2.99 but the art was bad. Just bad.
June 9, 2011 4:37 am One of the best, consistent books on the market. ERB would be proud IMO.
June 6, 2011 7:31 pm I agree! Lemire seems perfectly suited to this concept and I love the concept. I hope the DCNu offers a place for weird tales, both war and western.
