Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
Wish I had em.
Very interesting selections, especially the first one (and the X.Men one too). By the way, I just saw your posts about Barry Windsor-Smith and they were great. Anyway, I also wrote about Weapon X in my blog (wich I encourage you to visit):www.artbyarion.blogspot.comI hope you enjoy my review, and please feel free to leave me a comment over there or add yourself as a follower (or both), and I promise I'll reciprocate.Cheers,Arion.
Hey Arion, thanks for dropping by. Nice site on your end as well.You've got a new follower!
And so do you.
Hi thereIs the IRON MAN edition actually a compilation of strips or one of the prose novels that were published around the same time? I suspect, judging from the cover design and the author credit, it's the latter.
Hey there, you are correct. The Iron Man one is a prose novel, not an illustrated novel.
Hobgoblin238, wish I still had them! :(
That X-Men paperback--in B&W, of course--reprinted UXM #117 in addition to the aforementioned GS X-Men #1 was my bible and introduction to the team, though I had just began to read the comics monthly around that time. Anyway, I borrowed it from my best friend's older sister and I read and re-read that thing for weeks. It was a Godsend in those days before reprints made catching up with past adventures possible. Those UXM issues were expensive and hard-to-find even in 1982. Great memories of that paperback.
Thanks for sharing C.K. Always great to hear stories from the 1980s!
