Bullpen Bulletins (January 1980)
Bullpen Bulletins in January 1980 included the checklist for most – but not all – of the comics and magazines published by Marvel this month. Missing from the list are a few magazines cover dated January 1980, including Crazy Magazine #58 and Savage Sword of Conan #48. Stan’s Soapbox is awash with Hollywood hype as the recently relocated Stan plugs the Spider-Woman cartoon on ABC and talks about big show biz plans for Captain America, Daredevil, the Silver Surfer, Spider-Man and Thor. Bullpen Bulletins also notes January 24, 1980 as the release date for the first issue of Epic Illustrated, which is useful since specific release dates are tough to come by in this era.
