Introduction to my Comic Collection Part 6: Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man

So here we take a look at “Spider-Man,” the spin-off of Web of Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man and Spectacular Spider-Man. Just as The Uncanny X-Men got a spin-off that was just “X-Men” Spidey got his own spin-off that was just “Spider-Man” (which later went on to become “Peter Parker: Spider-Man”).

Overall I thought this series had a great start with Todd McFarlane and Eric Larsen starting it off, but ultimately I think it fizzled after they left, leaving Spidey with trivial adventures you couldn’t really care about that led to the horrible Clone Saga.

So here’s a look at “Spider-Man:”

I also go through my favorite issues of Amazing Spider-Man from my collection:


Yet another New Site!!!

So I just created a new site for all my comic-related stuff, check it out here. If you ever wondered why I call my site “Transformers & other Plastic Crack” it’s because I can’t call it Plastic Crack seeing as how a badass Transformers collector beat me to it with his site. So I did what anyone else would do and I left a comment on one of his entries asking if it would be cool to call my site Transformers & Other Plastic Crack and he said he was honored and/or flattered. It was cool with him. After a while I thought about doing a spin-off site dedicated to my love of comics but I realized he also beat me to the punch with his “Paper Crack” site so that’s why my new site is X-Men & other Paper Crack. While X-Men is in the title, most of the comics I’ll review or look at on the new page will be Marvel stuff from the 60s-90s since that era is, as I’ve said a zillion times, the best era in Marvel Comics and nothing will ever surpass it. So yeah, check out the new site and be sure to like it, comment on the entries and share with your fellow comic book fans.

Introduction to my Comic Collection Part Five: Wolverine

In this video we take a look at some of my favorite issues of Wolverine from my comic collection. And yes, I do realize that I make a gaffe and said Marc Silvestri signed one of my issues when I meant to say Len Wein. In my defense, I was working through a bit of a cold if you smell what The Sean is cooking:

My “Alternate” Review of The Avengers

So now that I got my spoiler-free version of The Avengers out of the way on Friday, here’s my two-part review that’s more “spoilerrific” and includes a bit more of my “colorful language.” Here I talk about the nitpicky kind of stuff I didn’t talk about in my spoiler-free review.

A Look at my Comic Collection Part Four: The X-Men

And now we look at some of my comics from the “X-Men” 90s series. The X-Men was a spin-off of “The Uncanny X-Men” and featured the “Blue Strike Team” (Uncanny X-Men were the Gold Team). Basically the Blue Team was comprised of the more popular X-Men Characters at the time (Wolverine, Cyclops, Beast, Gambit, Psylocke, Jubilee [yes, Jubilee was popular at that point] and Rogue). Overall the comic was pretty good but it fizzled out after Jim Lee and Claremont left the series IMO.

A look at my Comic Collection Part 3: “B Team” X-Men Spin-Offs

So here we take a look at some of the “B-Team” X-Men spin-offs such as Excalibur, New Mutants/X-Force and X-Factor.


New Mutants/X-Force


As I’ve said before, more Transformers reviews ARE COMING! In the mean-time check these vids out if you’re into old Marvel stuff.

A Look at my Comic Collection Part 1: The “B” Teams

So here we get a look at some of the “Avengers: West-Coast” and “New Warriors” comics in my collection to give you a good idea of what I’m talking about when I say I like the “B Team” Marvel Characters from the 90s and  their adventures. Good stuff all around.
