Indexer Notes

Stan Lee talks about the Lucca 9 comic-book convention that he attended in Lucca, Italy. He says the best part of the convention was how there were professors, businessman, scientists, filmmakers, lawyers and many other mature, serious fans in attendance. Items about Giant-Size Super-Stars, featuring Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian rotating each month, Giant-Size Chillers, featuring Dracula, Werewolf by Night and Man-Thing rotating each month, Savage Tales is returning starring Conan by the likes of Barry Smith, John Buscema, Gil Kane and Neal Adams, The Living Mummy returns as the star of Supernatural Thrillers, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad will be adapted in Worlds Unknown and due to a last-minute emergency the Bullpen Bonus Page will skip this month but it will return next month to tell about the bargains that will be yours when you amass a complete set of Marvel Value Stamps. Also includes a small promo for Lilith, the daughter of Dracula appearing in Giant-Size Chillers #1.
