Re: Dispute between Greg Theakston and the Jack Kirby Museum (reply)
Thanks for clarifying, jhalbright. I favor the one on the lower right because the image is brighter, with nothing looking like it's covered by a filter, if you know what I mean. The art is not obscured as much. Allen Smith

Re: Dispute between Greg Theakston and the Jack Kirby Museum (reply)
Just my opinion, the scan in the lower right corner looks just ever so slightly better than the others. Is it my imagination, or can anyone else see the difference? Granted that my eyesight doesn't qualify as being the greatest....

Re: Dispute between Greg Theakston and the Jack Kirby Museum (reply)
This sort of makes me question why the Museum would need photocopies once they've scanned them and have them on computer, or disk, or whatever.  Once they're stored in a computer, i.e. digital format, there wouldn't be any degradation of...

Re: Dispute between Greg Theakston and the Jack Kirby Museum (reply)
I agree in that I feel there's something not being told by one party or the other or both. All the Museum has to do is make copies of their own and return the loaned copies to Greg. I have no proof whatsoever when I'm saying this, but...

Making the rounds of the various comics facebook groups, and in particular, the Kirby Facebook groups, is news of a dispute between Greg Theakston and the Jack Kirby Museum.  Greg loaned photocopies of Jack Kirby's art, given to him by...

As for seeing Dazzler in a movie it might happen. But I'm not in any hurry to revive the disco era. Allen Smith

Somebody on FB said they could see Hugh Jackman's "junk" in the scene where he's naked with his back to the camera. I missed that part. I like Hugh, but not in that way.:-) Allen Smith

Enjoyed the movie. For once I could understand the characters and their motivations, and the story was well written and not confusing. Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as the rest of the cast, are excellent. Just a tiny bit...

Re: Most over & under-rated Marvel writers of the Silver and Bronze Age (reply)
The most overrated Marvel writer of the Silver Age is Stan Lee.  It doesn't really take all that much talent to write dialogue after the story's been written, with the artist supplying the panel to panel continuity and plotting.  Sort of...

Saw Noah in the theatres a few weeks ago. It was okay in some respects, but I thought it was overdone in other respects. Namely, the portrayal of Noah as some fanatic didn't sit well with me. I know that it wasn't intended to be a...
