Once upon a time, a particular Halloween Retro Review consisted of a cliffhanger ending and a query as to whether we should move on to part two. I joked about it being a six-year wait, but I wouldn’t be cruel enough to do that to the Faithful Spoilerites…

Ahhhh, yes… 1966. As you may recall, it was a year of Batmania, with comics once again in vogue: Mild-mannered scientists of all stripes, pop stars, funny animals, random fat men, teen–agers, spies and even grocery clerks gained mighty powers, and the kids of Riverdale were no exception.

With the recent return of Jean Grey from the proverbial bleedin’ choir invisibule, it seems like an excellent time to look at her FIRST return from the clutches of death… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Fantastic Four #286 awaits!
It’s a rule of comics: Life or death struggles for the fate of the entire world have to fall in favor of the valiant heroes. Of course, rules are made to be broken… Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Protectors #20 awaits!

Have you ever wondered why with all the superheroes located on the East Coast, there aren’t a million super-villain teams just rippin; California to shreds? You’re not the only one. (For my part, I just wondered why we spent so much time with the awful parents in their TV show.) Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Runaways #1 awaits!
