He said it turned the last page into an ad for the next issue.

The rest of us had a hard time understanding why that was a BAD thing.

You know...

If you want to be witty, you could name him Logan Gulo.

The Gulo family name was found in the USA between
1880 and 1920. The most Gulo families were found in and
the USA in 1880 and the USA in 1920. In 1880 there were
9 Gulo families living in Ohio. This was 100% of all the
recorded Gulo's in the USA. Ohio had the highest
population of Gulo families in 1880.


Right time and Ohio is near Canada. I know I'm
reaching, but it's witty and it works, and it is 'odd'
enough (?) that he would not have revealed it.

They come form many countries, not just Italy, and some
of them went to Canada instead. Ok, I'm done. I know
it's not going to happen, but I so would have done this
for obvious reasons that actually work.

Winters is another fun choice, to play off of
Summers and Canada...

I think this quarantine is getting to me.

~ Logan Gulo

~ Logan Winters

~ Logan Lane ;-)

~ Logan Labatt (lol)

Ok, now I'm done. I have a budget to review and
prepare for tomorrow.

Going back and re-reading some of these issues at random I am again and I am blown away at how good this story line was.  It reached a crescendo here with the arrival of the FF.

The art is astonishingly tight --- no wonder so few have tried to ink it. Doing so would more than likely just degrade what's already there.

Craftsmanship.  Don't you age?

Any chance of ever posting some even higher resolution scans?  This stuff need to be archived and preserved.

Lo, a thread shall rise again!

Rereading some of the posts here got me looking around the web for commentary on ELSEWHEN. What I found was about 97.5% positive, but even some of the good ones reminded me of something I’ve long found annoying about self appointed “reviewers”.

There are people out there who have so deeply immersed themselves in the mythology that they view everything thru that lens. Thus, if they find something—art, for instance—that reminds them of something else, they assume the similarity is intentional. That Artist B is deliberately mimicking Artist A.

Sometimes this ranges into absurdity, as with finding a suggestion that my Wolverine is based on Todd MacFarlane’s version of the character.

If it pleases the court, let me just state for the record that I am not a fan of MacFarlane's art.

His art is gold compared to his writing though.
