    I will. My next 90s Marvel purchase may be Death's Head. By the way, the fact that his first solo book came out in 1988 provides me an opportunity to mention that if a 90s Message Board were established, I would be pushing for its on topic time period to actually be 1986 to 2000. I say 1986 because that's the cut-off for the Gold-Silver-Bronze Age Board, and it seems wasteful to leave 1986 to 1990 unrepresented, so I figure the 90s board could scoop those years up. I think those years felt a lot like the 90s in any case. Surely Death's Head would fit in as on topic at a 90s board.


That's a great idea, and I agree about those years being a lot like the 90s. It's too bad that that period of comics (1986-2000) was not given an age name. I think it deserves one.

I don't know if I'm the only one, but I consider the comics of the 80s and 90s to be the perfect blend between realism and the fantastical over the top elements of older comic books(in both characterization and stories). In the 2000s I think they started trying to make comic stories and characters a little too realistic with a lot of shock value and mischaracterization thrown in as well (not that I don't still enjoy many modern comics).

    The Clone Saga played out between 1994 and 1996! Notorious as that was, I know there are some people who liked that story line and in particular liked Scarlet Spider. Oddly, I missed a lot of the Clone Saga, but I caught the Scarlet Spider solo book for a brief time, and liked it.


Yeah, the Clone Saga was a bit of a rough period for Spider-Man. I really enjoyed it up until Peter was revealed to be the clone though and I also liked Ben Reilly. Also, as bad as it got once he was revealed to be the clone, it was thankfully retconned and was no where near as bad as One More Day which made me drop Spider-Man for good and made me not like seeing Spider-Man in a post OMD comic at all.
