Indexer Notes

Part three of Mr. Kline story in DD. In the verbal snafu department: There is a string of dialogue in the story where DD says, "Who does your dialogue? Jane Austin? Ooops. Hope I haven't insulted anyone's literary tastes." Of course, the irony is that literary sensibilities may have been offended because the author's name is actually spelled "Austen."

Indexer Notes

Roy's Rostrum replaces Stan's Soapbox in this installment. Roy Thomas says Stan is working on a screenplay with director Alain Resnais and that Roy gets to write the whole Bullpen Page. This month several titles are going double-size to 52 pages for 25 cents. Stan had a speaking engagement at Boston University and was on Alex Bennett's WPLJ-FM talk show. WBAI-FM is airing dramatized versions of Marvel stories. Gerry Conway has a science fiction novel, "The Midnight Dancers," published by Ace. Marie Severin designed the costumes for a play written and directed by Sheldon Feldner at Emerson College. Also a spot illustration of Doctor Strange and the usual "Marvel" plus 11 headshots at the bottom of the page.
