Iron Man is born!
Iron Man is born!
they used Stan Lee’s birthdate for one of the license plate numbers in the ep. 7 theme 😭😭😭
idk if anyone else noticed it, but on Wanda’s license plate it said EXCELSIOR which is Stan Lee’s motto, making sure he still had a cameo somehow 🥺🥺🥺
But what is grief, if not love persevering?
From Fantastic Four #94 by Stan Lee,Jack Kirby,Joe Sinnott and Sam Rosen
Amazing Spider-Man #2 (Lee/Ditko, May 1963). Sometimes the pleasure in these early Marvel comics is in watching them figure things out. But with Spider-Man, it’s almost all there immediately. Some of it’s stuff tested in other books. Pete’s a teenager like Johnny Storm or Rick Jones. He’s hunted and feared like the Hulk. He’s a scientist and an inventor, like Reed and Hank and Bruce. But all of these elements synthesize into something greater in Peter Parker. Whether he’s worrying about paying Aunt May’s bills, withstanding Flash Thompson’s bullying, or devising a strategy to outwit the Vulture, Pete’s life feels richer and fuller to me than any of his predecessors.
Fantastic Four #14 (Lee/Kirby, May 1963). When Namor starts vogueing about how important and sexy he is, Ben’s already shuffling out the door.
Have you never seen an Iron Man before?!
Fantastic Four #13 (Lee/Kirby, Apr 1963). The Watcher turns up just long enough to grumble about the kids making a ruckus on his moon lawn, then disappears. Also really noticing a difference in Ayers’ and Ditko’s inking styles. I’m learning that I really like Ayers’ work!

Daicon V: A Virtual Retrospective
As a kid that grew up on old media, be it movies, music or TV Shows, basically anything I could rummage at hole in the wall video stores. I love this little film so much. It is a love letter to everything I think is cool, and I wanted it to be the first entry in the JAE sub retrospective. I am getting older I guess and looking back on all these things that inspire me. Things that I just love so much. It makes me happy to share them with others. Thank you for taking this journey with me really, and I hope you continue to enjoy it.
Until next week. Perhaps Giant Robots? Huummm. See you then!!!

Spider Man’s comic debut.
“The Real Hergé: The Inspiration Behind Tintin”, first comics-related biography from White Owl Books
Slipping under my radar late last year was the release of The Real Hergé: The Inspiration Behind Tintin by Sian Lye, published by White Owl Books, an imprint of Pen & Sword – and the publisher has more comics-related biographies in the works, including an “joyous” tribute to Stan Lee from Adrian Mackinder.
Belgian comic creator Georges Remi, aka Hergé (1907-1983) created only 24 Tintin books,…
Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Lee/Ditko, Mar 1963). Peter’s struggle to control his reputation still feels relevant, almost 60 years later.
Incredible Hulk #6 (Lee/Kirby, Mar 1963). These first six issues are very experimental: Hulk’s skin changes from grey to green; Banner’s transformation comes every night, then he builds a device to manually change back and forth; and each transformation retains different degrees of Hulk’s rage and strength, or of Banner’s intelligence and vocabulary. Despite this, the book feels surprisingly coherent! I think it’s because Banner himself chooses to conduct tests, so every narrative shift feels motivated by character. I’m kinda disappointed that Hulk’s solo book goes on hiatus for five years now…
