Back to the flagship… but still with Magneto!  A wildly convenient little ditty today, which starts at Professor X’s somber memorial… and ends up on the electrified floor of Island M.  The hows and whys are part of (if not ALL of) the fun…

Also: A backup strip to shut up some of the more annoying… err, prolific… letterhacks, finally explaining how Cyclops’ powers work!

Speaking of letterhacks, we’ll be covering 7-8 of those, then hopping into the Bullpen Bulletins to talk about the 1968 Marvel Explosion, I kvetch s’more about variant covers… and much, much more!

    I read Stan Goldman was the main colorist for all Marvel books from 1961 to 1965 at which point I assume he then began sharing the responsibility with Marie Severin when she was appointed Marvel head colorist until 1972 but, other than the occasional artist coloring his own work, were there any other colorists on staff around this time?

      Goldman should be Goldberg. Goldman is probably the bald fellow who goes home with the best moving picture winners every year.
