> It's an excellent arc/issue, with rarely-bettered Buscema art.
> I was just a kid then, bought the isses at 7-11 in Miami, and loved this match between the Avengers and the MOE. Those were the REAL Avengers to me, and that MOE Was only equalled by Stern's. The Melter became my demi-god, and the rest, especially Whirwind in his cool costume, almost as much.

Where exactly in Miami, it's where I grew up too, although that issue came out a wee bit before I started collecting. The first 7-11 purchase I got on my own was the one in my sig. I'm gonna freak if we visited the same places \:\)

It's a lovely idea and this isn't meant to be cynical,
but I think people are just people who are capable of
very good of very bad things.... "

I guess you're not my childhood-Miami best friend, Jeffrey Knuckles in diguise? I've lost touch with him long, long ago and often wonder where he is.

I spent my 'formulative years' in Nashville, TN, but my dad was a Marine and we moved to North Miami when I was 6. I lived on 132st Street, right near Gulf 5 & Ten and St. James Catholic Church/School, where I went to class, and where my mother was a teacher.

There was a 7-11 on Seventh Avenue and about 136st Street, and that's where I picked up my comics. Felix Hobby Shop was right down the street, as was Gi-Gi's Italian Grotto.

Was this your...environ?

I'll never froget the first time I saw the Spider Man Annual/Special with the Sinister Six on the cover...I almost fainted in the store.
