384th Post - The Scanner in Action

Read post #383 if you haven't already.

Here are a couple of pages from Power Man #30, from April 1976. You may recall it was written by my least favourite comic book writer ever, Don McGregor. There are people who like his writing. I found it ponderous and pretentious as a child. As I stated before, he wrote so much copy, and the poor letterers had to work so hard to jam it all into the allotted space, that they were paid a premium to do so.

Page one, called the splash page in case you want to amaze your friends with the lingo:

And here is the page where the gf (girlfriend, not garlic fingers!) remarks at how good her man feels. Note the reference to the cost of gasoline later on in the page. Times were different then, weren't they?

Don't forget that you can click on the images to enlarge them.

Like my scanner so far?

These pages, and many more, are copyright 2008, Marvel Comics.
