“Infinity Gauntlet” powered up May 1991
Moving on to May 1991 in my continuing series looking back at the comic books of 1991. In this post, I’ll look at the comics I bought in May 1991, and at some of the other comic books that were available. I’m using the newsstand option at Mike’s Amazing World of Comics as my reference guide for this. When I remember, I’ll share details about how and where I bought comics at the time.
“Infinity Gauntlet” No. 1 hit the stands, and based on my experience with “Silver Surfer” 50, I definitely wanted in. Plus, it was all the superheroes versus an apparently unstoppable force – how can you beat that? I got this on from one of the AMC flea market dealers. I can’t remember his name at this point, but he was a dark-haired guy who also helped me with my Captain America back-issue collecting.
“Captain America” was shipping biweekly for the summer, so I picked up #387 and #388, part of the Superia Strategem, which was ultimately somewhat goofy. At the time, I was really digging Ron Lim on art, though, and Mark Gruenwald could still do no wrong with me.
It seems like I got the New Mutants/New Warriors annual crossovers in annuals #7 and #1 respectively. I tried out another issue #50, with “Punisher” issue 50, and continued on “Silver Surfer” with #51.
