We're back! +Comics Bulletin's MONDO MARVEL Volume Two: January - June 1963 is ready to lodge itself in your eyeballs!

From a cave in Vietnam, millionaire industrialist Tony Stark saves his own life by creating an amazing suit of armor! The Fantastic Four wins the Space Race! The Incredible Hulk loses his own title but makes a bigger splash elsewhere! Nurse Jane Foster keeps pining for Thor, while Thor secretly pines right back! Spider-Man tries to join the FF! Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos take the stage during World War II! Beautiful teenage heiress, Jan Van Dyne falls in love with Hank Pym and gets the gift of wings as he tries to not be creepy! Well, creepier! It's the start of the first full year of Marvel Comics and it's filled with paranoia, Red Scares, alien invasions, and superheroes as monstrous as the supervillains they fight!

I have returned to read and react to the creation of the Marvel Comics Superhero Universe, month by month, issue by issue! Sometimes it's irreverent, sometimes it's way-too-serious, and sometimes you'll want to smack me in the mouth! 

Originally published as a series of columns on Comics Bulletin, Mondo Marvel is a no-holds barred look back at what worked and what didn't in the creative explosion engineered by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko that launched the Marvel Superhero Universe. Volume Two covers each Marvel Superhero comic published between cover dates January and June, 1963, with three more volumes already underway covering the rest of 1963 and 1964!

MONDO MARVEL: VOLUME ONE - NOV. 1961 - DEC. 1962 on sale now WORLDWIDE!!!

Hey! What's that? It's a new ebook by Your's Truly!!! We at +Comics Bulletin have decided to experiment with epublishing some of our more in-depth and substantial columns, and the first one out the gate is my MONDO MARVEL column!

I'll be taking a month-by-month, issue-by-issue look at the formation and expansion of the Marvel Superhero Universe in a generally light-hearted, but at times maybe too-serious, way. It's a fun read and a glimpse into what it was like reading those classic Marvel comics for the first time all over again.

+Comics Bulletin Presents MONDO MARVEL Volume 1 is now on-sale WORLDWIDE!!! If you've got an Amazon, you've got no excuse! Well, no e-reader is a decent excuse, but that shouldn't stop you from buying it up for FUTURE READING!

Seriously, though. Thanks for your support and please spread the word. Any monies made not only help me buy beer, but helps keep Comics Bulletin running. And be on the lookout for Volumes 2 and 3 in the weeks to come, covering every month of 1963!

Plus, don't forget that I've got a novel (THE UNRAVELING: DAMAGED INC. BOOK ONE) and a book of short stories (COFFEE, SEX, AND CREATION) you can pick up for your Kindle! And there's The American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1980s, where I wrote chapter 10: 1989.
