Re: What Film Have You Watched Recently? (reply)
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...

Re: Worst Jack Kirby Marvel Inker (reply)
I never liked Chic Stone's excessively thick inking lines all that much. Allen Smith

Re: Worst Jack Kirby Marvel Inker (reply)
It's a hard question. I think that Roussos/Bell could be sloppy in many of his ink jobs over Kirby, but he also did some good inking jobs as well. Same goes for Vinnie Colletta. He had certain qualities that made him good on strips...

I don't know that Lee would have controlled anyone's pay rate, he didn't have that power.  I'm pretty sure that Goodman relied on him to hire people, though, and decide who got what assignments and when.  So, some power there.     Allen...

Re: Where is Mark Evanier's Jack Kirby book (reply)
Agree that if anyone has any information about Kirby that they should bring it forward.  The same idea, of course, applies to Stan Lee.  I haven't seen a single person comment on the fact that just about every book on him is just the...

Saw The Hobbit 2: The Desolation of Smaug today, a nice little film.  Of course there will be a part three.  Enjoyed the design of the characters, the action was solid, hurt only by the fact that I've never read The Hobbit or the Rings...

Re: Al Plastino fights to prevent sale of original art for "Superman's Mission for President Kennedy" (reply)
I'd not heard that Jack signing papers for Marvel supporting them in the fight over Cap in the late/mid '60s was taboo. The subject doesn't come up often, but it's not like I've read people disapproving of discussion of the topic,...
