Assistant Editors' Month: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Remember Assistant Editors' Month? January 1984? Hoping I would never ask? Been trying to forget it? 

Some of these issues are complete travesties that are now a part of canon. Who can forget Aunt May as Golden Oldie- Herald of Galactus, blank pages in Alpha Flight #6 to represent a blizzard and the super awesome villain - Goody Two Shoes!


 Golden Oldie - Herald to Galactus!
No Art - Alpha Flight #6
Goody Two-Shoes kicks the Ever Lovin' Thing in the Gut 
 Mo-Skull !!!!















Please leave comments here to show your appreciation or disgust for the many things that happened this month. Most of these stories have less that fabulous reviews on here. Got a story you'd like to defend? Did you like the Avengers on the David Letterman show? Did this one month really screw up some continuity with one of your favorite characters?

Looks like Goody is hitting a little further south of the belt from my perspective.

sometimes  I really wish aunt may would have really became a
Herald   ( instead of just remaining a amazingly absurd what if  story ) but I still love the 80s  .
or if grant morrison would ever want to work with marvel again he probly would bring this little golden piece of history into cannon ,but only time would tell after batman ( he may well write batman forever much to Jim carry`s dismay ) but only if he can have Frank Quietly as penciler then it would be great ! (mark millar tested stan lee approved )

I loved these issues, a nice change from the ordinary.

@Emperor Gonzo Noir: Perhaps, I thought the same thing could be possible
@J1ml33: I totally think it was in continuity.
@Hawkeye446: Any issue in particular you really enjoyed?

@aztek the lost: @Shatterstar: It's a blog. It was already attached to Marvel and Assistant Editors Month. I also pinned it to the Gen Discussion board in the hopes people would actually click on it. I'm still hunting for that topic that gets me over 10 replies. Well, ones that don't revolve around aztek anyway...

Try a thread titled "who rules more wolfverine or deadpool". Your first post in the thread should say simply " or batman". Come back in an hour and presto you have yourself a popular thread.

I just missed this... I don't know how because it just jumped out at me!


I remember this!  I must have repressed the memories of it for so long, because I'd forgotten about it till I saw the thread in the forums... All I remember is that the New Mutants issue didn't have ANYTHING out of the ordinary in it ;p

@xerox-kitty: I flipped through that the other day to see if I could get any horrible gold out of it and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. I figured I just didn't know the characters well enough.

Maybe it was the kid in me, but I loved this month and have been waiting for more.

I should go back and find the issues I have.....
