And now for something completely different! Here is an all-new custom comic strip, detailing an emotional encounter I had in 1976 (at age 11) with a stack of (what then seemed like) very old Marvel comic books, a heap I had to own! Read about my reaction to those still-treasured comics, and my conscience-tossed final decision, in this fun and frivolous funny fumetti! Click below to enlarge!
|Almost every comic Miss Serpico (yes, that was her name) had stowed in |
that rear cubby all came from late 1972! She said they once belonged to her
brother, so he musta went on a one-month comic-buying kick...
|It was actually fun trying to fit the 4-year old books into then-current (and |
fairly new to me) Marvel continuity ("There was a 1950s Captain America and
Bucky?! The Vision has issues with the Grim Reaper? Neal Adams drew for Marvel?!)...
I had also never owned comics with the famed (and short-lived) Marvel "box design"
covers, and loved that look then and now!
