49 YEARS AGO TODAY

The first Marvel comic I ever bought was fighting for attention on the nation's spinner racks.
Stan Lee prided himself on making sure that every comic he worked on was a good jumping on point for new readers. He certainly succeeded with THOR #143. Of course the Kirby cover had to get my attention first!
