This Week in Marvel History: October 18-October 24
See what happened at Marvel on these dates in its 80-year history!
With Marvel celebrating its 80th anniversary this year – and to scratch my own history and research itches – every week I’m digging through a whole host of important dates and details for a special segment of This Week in Marvel called… (wait for it) … This Week in Marvel History! Important comics, storylines, character appearances and moments, real world releases and special Marvel milestones—it’s all part of TWIMH! Here are just a few Marvel History notes for the week of October 18-October 24!
1950: TRUE SECRETS #4 was released, featuring—I believe—the first John Romita art for Marvel. John would go on to do Spider-Man and so much more, but he had a great legacy of work on romance comics.
2005: Issue #1 of NICK FURY’S HOWLING COMMANDOS was released featuring Warwolf, the Living Mummy, Frankenstein, the Zombie, and Vampire by Night.
1972: FANTASTIC FOUR #130 was released. In this issue, Sue broke up with Reed and walked out with their son, leaving the Fantastic Four. Also today, Marvel’s retelling of Mary Shelley’s classic FRANKENSTEIN #1 hit newsstands.
