While chatting Zach Davis the other day, and he pointed out he took a new tact to parenting with his daughter. No more boring ass kids’ books that pander to everyone’s cheapened sense of narrative, and generally mistake plot with lifeless exercises about talking animals. It’s time to cut through the veil and get some god-damned 70s and 80s Marvel comics for the kids. Enough is enough. And you know what, he couldn’t have been more right about anything in this world.
I mean just look at the poster? What the hell have I been doing for the past five years? And you know what, comics are cheaper than ya think. So, i am gonna focus on The Hulk, Avengers, anything Vision, and Scarlet Witch. And, I’ve been scouring for recommendations, and I like this list of 10 Marvel one-shots from the 80s. Liking the Silver Surfer love. And while I was never a major Thor fan as a kid, I think I could get into some Nordic, viking golden hammer beatings before my kids go to bed.
That’s it, this weekend I get in my car and drive to this comic shop in Richmond—and Tessy, Miles and me are gonna start scouring the boxes together.
So who’s got some specific recommendations for me?
