Fabulous Find: The California Pelican from 1965

It is just about impossible to determine when and where the very first write-up on the still new and very cool Marvel Comics of the sixties was published, but in this week's Fabulous Find, I just might have found one of the very first, if not the actual first publication.  I don't know for sure, but I do know that this … [Read more...]
