MY FAVORITE COMICS - "The Sword and the Sorceress" in The Avengers #84

 Yet another one filled with memorable moments. John Buscema and Tom Palmer create some incredibily moody artwork and unforgettable sequences starting with the splash of the Black Knight riding Aragorn, his winged stallion. Again, Arkon returns, this time around teaming-up with gorgeous but evil Enchantress. The incredible blending of genres and the visual glamour on this one still leave me breathless.

MY FAVORITE COMICS - The Avengers #75-76

Another John Buscema beauty, this time with the great Tom Palmer on inks and a fine Roy Thomas tale too. So many memorable sequences and characters on this one - Jarvis panick as he tries to deal with the breaking and entrance of Quicksilver in the Avengers Mansion, the farewell to Janet and Hank Pym as they leave for their honeymoon, the beautiful Scarlet Witch kidnapped by the magnificent Arkon , the doomed world of Polemachus and the final showdown between the Avengers and Arkon atop the Empire State Building! No wonder, I ended up having a lifelong love affair with comics, being exposed to these incredible fantasies as a child.
