NotesEdit

  1. Dr Scarabeus profile
  2. 2.0 2.1 During this period, Marvel published a number of reprint titles. In 2005, former Marvel editor Danny Fingeroth explained it this way: "Somehow in my mind is the idea that Marvel had promised the advertisers in their comics a certain minimum monthly circulation for their ads (which ran in all comics in a given month), and they needed to put out extra material to meet those commitments, so doing these reprints seemed the easiest way to do it."[citation needed]
