We’re finally back for a stint in the Silver-Age… where one of our teen-age heroes meets a fella outta Marvel’s Golden Age! It’s the coming (and going) of Red Raven! Hold on to yer harnesses gang, this one’s gonna be a barn-burner! We’ve got us a new writer to boot!
Plus – The Origins of the X-Men backup strip focuses on Kid Kool as he gets roughed up by some Strong Island street toughs, and thrown in the clink!
Also – our normal Silver-Age back-matter – Letters Pages (featuring future pros Keith Giffen and Carl Gafford), an abridged Bullpen Bulletins bit, and an absolutely overflowing MIGHTY Marvel Checklist!
It’s great to be back in “the long ago”, I sure hope you’ll join me!
