Production Notes[edit]

The Original Artwork[edit]

This reprint of X-MEN #1 comes from a collection released in 1975 by Stan Lee titled “Son Of Origins”. What was rather sad was the state of the artwork that produced it. Besides the usual roughness, there were balloon outlines that were broken and missing plus “paste-up” marks. (the sign of poorly assembled or preserved artwork) It appears that they were literally pasting the dialogue into the balloons by hand with tweezers and strips of glued paper for this one. That’s the old fashioned way but when done properly it can last, assuming it’s preserved well. I’d hate to see what Kirby got back 12 years later when Marvel gave him his original artwork back (due to industry pressure). I spent a considerable amount of time cleaning this up and redrawing missing or broken lines. With 20+ years of running a printing press, there’s an anal retentive compulsion to fix and repair things that nobody else cares about that comes with it. I could have spent another week cleaning up every imperfection in this particular reprint but it wouldn’t look like a real comic book if I did.

Storyboard/Panel Alterations[edit]

Images# 1, 2 and 4 are complete pages while the other 5 had to be tediously shoved pieced together. Unlike “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques”, the storyboard did not fall together easily and got tweaked a few times - especially to give Magneto more chances to speak. The two television panels were originally a single panel that showed Magneto looking at a rocket that was preparing to launch from “Cape Citadel”. The images of Xavier and Marvel Girl were dropped in with the cloning tool (one mistake, start all over). --DRStrangesig5.png Sherman.png Fingertalk.png  17:57, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

The Marvel babies[edit]


When I was writing this, I thought to myself "what's the most hideous thing you could do in order to profiteer from the Marvel Characters?" and I said to myself "That's easy MARVEL BABIES" so I looked on the net and it's already been developed yet not SOLD to someone.....uh oh......Disney is going to either exploit these or I know absolutely nothing about anything. IT STINKS!--DRStrangesig5.png Sherman.png Fingertalk.png  18:22, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
