Letters Column: TCR Mailboat
News from comic book publishers with detailed information and a multitude of cover reproductions for the June 1978 cover-dated comics.
Rona Blabbit's Media News column, including a prime-time grid for the three networks reflecting mid-season replacements.
JIM STARLIN provides the front cover illustration of "Ghost Rider astride his original cycle."
AL MILGROM's back cover pictures Charlie-27 (of The Guardians of the Galaxy) in his original uniform.
The TCR Mailboat boasts letters from BILL MANTLO and GEORGE OLSHEVSKY. In his letter, Mantlo mentions enjoying Marv Wolfman's essay on Spider-Woman and states he'd like to write a piece about the Jack-of-Hearts. He also makes mention of Rocket Raccoon (a character who would not appear until Hulk #271 in 1982 and only really break out in the 1985 miniseries illustrated by Mike Mignola).
Fred Hembeck provides a full-color cartoon of Spider-Man. [The first of the many he contributed to TCR??]
An added bonus is a full-page ad for GEORGE PEREZ's portfolio, "Perez--Accent on the First'E'." The ad is hand-lettered and appears to contain an original Perez illo of Howard the Duck, Green Lantern, Batman, The Thing and Red Sonja (who looks a heck of a lot like Starfire!).
