F.O.O.M. #1, #2, and #3 are live!
This past Tuesday, Comics Bulletin launched a new series of columns that I hope will continue to build as the weeks go on. It's called FOOM (Flashbacks of Ol' Marvel), and features CB writers crafting columns that discuss their favorite Marvel Comics issues and/or storylines from the past.
Jason Sacks kicked it off with a nice and focused column about a Black Panther storyline from the early Seventies: "Panther's Rage!"
This was followed by Dave Wallace putting together a very nice commentary on The Amazing Spider-Man #32 (Vol. 2) and how it got him into reading comics.
And I posted a long, not-very-well-constructed essay, summarizing the saga of Deathlok the Demolisher, through five different titles and over 10 years or so. It's the dud of the bunch, to be quite honest.
But don't let that stop you from checking them out!
Hopefully, there will be more of the good stuff to come!
