  1. the wearing of speedos by super heroes always seemed alienating for me. not just in the beach: whenever Peter Parker loses his costume, he has black speedos underwear

  2. You have to wonder how good Bob Harras must have felt as '91 closed out. The titles are doing extremely well, and he has 4 of the hottest artists at Marvel (and the industry overall) working on the X-titles. "Things are only going to get better next year, right?"

  3. ^"We got rid of old man Claremont, top selling Spider-Man and X-Men books with our great artists, got like 3 different Punisher ongoings, surely the good times are gonna last forever!"
