please help me find a comic from my childhood

As a child, I dimly remember reading a specific comic book, and (after all this time) I'd like to find it again. The story had Iron Fist fighting Fu Manchu in a frozen or icy place. [more inside]

Let's hear it for communications

Looking for a picture from, IIRC, one of the early issues of the 1980s era GI Joe comic book. It's a picture of GI Joe member Breaker saying something like "Let's hear it for communications!" I remember it taking up the whole page, but haven't been able to find it online, or in the ebook version of the early comics.

I'm looking for a comic I read decades ago and only remember two panels.

Two or three decades ago I read a comic which I've been thinking about off and on the last few years, but I haven't been able to find it again. All I can remember about it was that there was a solid black panel followed by a panel where someone explains that there had just been something like a gap (or hole?) in reality (or time?)

understanding superhero comics requires some arcane magic I do not have

I liked the new Captain America movie. I want to read more about these characters. How do I get into the comics? Where do I start? Can I use the Marvel app to do this? How do I read them in order with all those team-up comics and spinoffs? *Should* I read them in order? Also, what slash fiction should I read while reading them, and should I read that at a certain point in the continuity, or just do my usual thing and go on a fanfic binge once I'm caught up?

I have seen Iron Man and The Avengers (I liked both). I have also seen four episodes of Agents of SHIELD. I'm now curious about the other movies, what with all the good press for the new Captain America and all the Loki gifs everywhere. Which movies in this universe should I watch and in what order?

Where should i start with Captain America and Thor?

Recently i've been getting into marvel comics more, more specifically Thor and Captain America. I've almost finished vol. 1 of Thor:The Mighty Avenger that basically talks about him and Jane and i'm really enjoying it so far. I think they only have 3 trades for that so after i finish that series where should i go from there? As for Captain America i've never read any of it, but i think i'd like to start out with something newer that gets into his orgins first and then going from there. I wouldn't mind reading any of the other Avengers as well like Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hulk, and Iron man but i don't know where to start with any of those either. But if anyone has some ideas i'd really appreciate it!

Where can I get classic Marvel comics on newsprint, in colour?

I'd like to read some great old Marvel comics. The only reprinted compilations that I've seen in bookstores are the Essentials, which are in black and white (when the whole point is how colourful they are), and the Masterpiece series, which are expensive, and the colours don't look right when printed on the shiny paper. Is there any way to get reprints in colour on newsprint? I know there was at one point, since I first encountered the Fantastic Four in Archie's-double-digest-like format.

Help a comics completist.

A few years back I found a website that listed out all the comics that Marvel has published throughout their history in a year by year basis. The page was set up in a very basic HTML grid format, but it was amazingly comprehensive. I need to find it to calm my anal retentive impulse to read all my back issues in chronological order. It was not Mike's Amazing World of Marvel Comics as much as I do love that site, it just isn't quite enough to fulfill my completist nature. Help?

What are the exact dimensions of Captain America's shield?

I'm making a lightweight replica of Captain America's shield (the modern-day circular one), most likely with PVC in a laser router machine. The only dimensions I can secure online are that it's 30 inches in diameter, but I can't find any info on thickness and concave depth. Anyone know the missing dimensions I need? Bonus points if there exist specifics on the width of the color bars but I'm pretty sure that part I can eyeball during painting. Thanks!
