Marvel Subscription Form (January 1980)

Marvel's subscription form in comics cover dated January 1980 featured an awesome Christmas wreath decorated with hero head ornaments.  Marvel had 30 comics in its line up available for subscription at this point, pretty much the full publishing roster with the exception of its magazines and special editions.  These subscription ads have proven to be very useful for tracking the months that comics were actually released since the cover dates are typically at least three months ahead.  This ad is dated October 1979, which is a pretty good proxy for when the comic would have been on newsstands.
