Madness! Chaos! Anything goes! It’s Assistant Editors’ Month at Marvel!

Back in 1984, when all the head editors were off at conventions, they handed the reigns over to their assistants who had a lot of fun with their freedom.

We read Thing #7, Defenders #127, Avengers #239, Dazzler #30, and the infamous takedown of Galactus by Aunt May and Franklin Richards in Marvel Team-Up #137.

We also finished out JLA/Avengers #4!

Don't say we didn't warn you!

Next Time: Rat Queens: Sass & Sorcery + Squadron Supreme #1

It's a scientific fact that stories about maniacal ax-wielding children are always entertaining. I Hate Fairyland is no exception, although I guess technically it's about a woman who just looks like a kid because she's spent 27 years stuck in a sugary wonderland.

We read the first 5 issues of writer/artist Skottie Young's recent Image series and then we continued JLA/Avengers with issue #3.

Next Time: Marvel Assistant Editor's Month 1984 (Avengers #239, Dazzler #30, Defenders #127, Marvel Team-Up #137, Thing #7)
