Indexer Notes

The Marvel Bullpen Bulletins articles concern new adaptations of Robert E. Howard's stories in Conan the Barbarian and various authors, disc jockeys and movie producers commenting on Marvel Comics. Stan Lee's Soapbox is about how letter writers to Captain America and the Falcon are focusing on current events rather than the stories. Also includes head shots of Thor, Human Torch [Johnny Storm], Iron Man [Tony Stark], Daredevil, Captain America [Steve Rogers], Iceman, Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Thing, Hulk [Bruce Banner] and Sub-Mariner.
