John Vest On The Gold Key Characters As Handled By Jim Shooter
posted April 17, 2011

I picked up some of the titles in the early 90's with Gold Key characters for the pleasure of seeing new artwork by Barry Windsor-Smith, Steve Ditko, Ralph Reese. The revivals with Gold Key, Tower, Red Circle characters that come along every few years always seem perplexing. The comics are like flowers which you know are going to fade and die by the wintertime.
