Features Flo Steinberg and the Marvel Age of Comics. Highly Recommended. Edited by Roy Thomas.

A rare spotlight on the unforgettable Fabulous Flo Steinberg, Marvel's gal Friday and Stan's right-hand girl—with anecdotes and essays by the pros and friends who knew and loved her! I met her several times, and she was always a delight to talk with. And she even published her own underground comic book, Big Apple, complete with a cover by Wally Wood and top pros inside! Art by Kirby, Ditko, Wood, Adams, Trimpe, Williamson, Ploog, Severin, and others—plus: Flo's successor, Robin Green, interviewed by Richard Arndt about her time at Marvel.

And also from Robin, her 1971 article on Marvel for Rolling Stone magazine (and maybe a little bit about her days writing TV's The Sopranos, to boot)! Not to mention FCA (Fawcett Collectors of America), Mr. Monster meets Dan Adkins (Part 1), and Bill Schelly! Cover art by Craig Wolden & Jack Kirby! Edited by Roy Thomas.

Features include Flo and the first New York Comic-Cons by Bill Schelly, Dr. Vassallo was her friend, fan, and...dentist! And an early interview with Flo herself, "It was my first job in the big city!"

Plus Mr. Monster's Comic Crypt looks at the swipes controversy in the 1960s, which my old partner Jim Vadeboncoeur played a part in, as he went after Dan Adkins with little mercy. How about "Dan Adkins and the Incredible Tracing Machine"?

Also a tribute to Carolyn Kelly, daughter of Walt Kelly, who helped to carry on the Pogo tradition to new generations. And we find out more about the Captain Marvel copyright crisis in the latest Fawcett Collector's section.
