Blah Blah Blog – All My Love To Long Ago

A post from my old Marvel blog looking back on some stories that I had edited in the past. All My Love To Long Ago May 12, 2009 | 1:00 AM | By Tom_Brevoort | In General I don't often get the opportunity to reread the books I've worked on over the years. Once they're … Continue reading Blah Blah Blog – All My Love To Long Ago

BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #74

So this was another issue that I got in a plastic 3-Bag at either a department store or a toy store, and it was the last part that I hadn't read of this four-part Skrulls storyline--a storyline that I read entirely out of sequence, beginning with the concluding chapter. It was the last multi-part storyline … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL’S GREATEST COMICS #74

WC: TALES TO ASTONISH #38

It's been said over the years that Marvel's publisher Martin Goodman had an unwavering faith in the sales appeal of Ant-Man. How much of that was due to him hearing about the sell-through numbers on the earliest appearances of the Atom over at rival DC I do not know--but it does account for the reason … Continue reading WC: TALES TO ASTONISH #38

BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #33

This issue of MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE was another that I got in a 3-Bag, and quite likely the reason that I picked up that particular 3-Bag in the first place. As I've said before, during this time, FANTASTIC FOUR was my favorite comic book, and so anything featuring a member of the FF drew me like … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE #33

BHOC: MARVEL TRIPLE ACTION #38

This issue of MARVEL TRIPLE ACTION was another book that I picked up as part of a 3-Bag purchased either at a department store or a local toy store. It reprinted an issue of AVENGERS that was about a decade old at that point. And during that time, AVENGERS was a very different book than … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TRIPLE ACTION #38

WC: TALES OF SUSPENSE #46

This cover to TALES OF SUSPENSE #46 has always struck me as odd. For one things, we don't actually see the title character in costume--that inset image of Tony STark donning his armor feels like an afterthought to me, an add-on. Additionally, the crimson Dynamo who is so touted here bears only a marginal resemblance … Continue reading WC: TALES OF SUSPENSE #46

BHOC: MARVEL TEAM-UP #63

This was another comic book that I bought in a 3-Bag bundle from a department store or a toy store. The new creative team on MARVEL TEAM-UP, Chris Claremont and John Byrne, had first worked together on IRON FIST, the recently-cancelled martial arts super hero series. Before it went away, they had begun a subplot … Continue reading BHOC: MARVEL TEAM-UP #63

MARVELMANIA Magazine #1 (#0)

In 1969, when the Merry Marvel Marching Society was phased out in favor of a new Marvel fan club the rights to which were licensed to a fellow named Don Wallace (as talked about in the piece below:) https://tombrevoort.com/2022/05/28/marvelmania-catalog-1/ one of the new club's endeavors was to put out a regular Marvel-themed fanzine, a subscription … Continue reading MARVELMANIA Magazine #1 (#0)
