Palisades Park by Alan Brennart (early 80s readers may remember some Batman comics he did)

It has its moments, he does a great job of making one fall in love with the amusement park in the title and there are several references sprinkled throughout to delight and amuse the comic book fan. Unfortunately, attempting to cover 50 years in 400 pages led to a somewhat cursory back half.

The book feels like one thing in the first half and then a decision is made that makes the back half feel very different. As part of that, one character makes an offer to another that is declined. Near the end the person who declined wonders what would have been had they accepted the offer. I would have rather read that book.

Really loving this book. Some stunning work by Ditko and, I believe, all but one of the stories are written by Archie Goodwin.
