    The Amazing Spider-Man #284, January 1987. Cover by Ron Frenz. Tom DeFalco, plot; Ron Frenz, storytelling; “ably assisted” by Jim Owsley, script; and Brett Breeding, pencils. Josef Rubinstein, inks; Rick Parker, lettering, Bob Sharen, colorist; Jim Salicrup, editor; Jim Shooter, editor-in-chief.
    The Amazing Spider-Man #284, April 1987. Cover by David Mazzuchelli. Jim Owsley, script; Erik Larsen, pencils; Art Nichols, inks; Rick Parker; letters; Julianna Ferriter, colors; Jim Salicrup, editor; Jim Shooter, editor-in-chief.

    As you can see from the credits, things were a little tumultuous at the time. Jim Owsley talks about it here; and Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz, who remember things differently, talk about it here.

    There are some fascinating anecdotes in these accounts, and the whole story is one the many detours I could have taken in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story had I had more time and space.

    Daredevil #223 cover by John Byrne.

    Seen here are the original cover, the published cover and what the cover would have looked like if colored as John intended.

    John shared this story on his website:

    That 223 cover was one of the seriously annoying moments that come along from time to time. When I was asked to do it, the image you see popped immediately into my head, with the colors as in Nathan’s second post. I described it to the editor. I described it to Shooter. Everybody agreed. I drew the cover…

    And then the color version in Nathan’s first post came out. Had they forgotten to tell the colorist what I wanted? Had I simply been mollycoddled? LIED to? Given the temper of the times, the latter is, sadly, not at all unlikely.

    John Byrne’s not even on Twitter and he has mastered the art of subtweeting.

    Variety ad, 1979: “Daredevil is but one of over 100 exciting characters ready right now to star in your next motion picture or television production. All Marvel Characters have their own identity—their own personal story—and the potential for outrageous stardom—just like Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk and Captain America.”

    1987: Jim Lee at MarvelCarl Potts’ DC Comics Guide to Creating Comics was published this week, and so I thought I’d take a moment to highlight a passage from Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, about Potts’ impact as an editor._______Art Adams had an immediate impact on his aspiring peers, the young men who’d been weaned on Claremont and Byrne’s X-Men and Frank Miller’s Daredevil and who’d seen the visual style of Marvel Comics settle into staid functionality. In the last days of the Jim Shooter reign, there emerged a clutch of young artists who determinedly rendered every strand of hair, every stretch of clothing, every tooth in their characters’ mouths. If there was a scene with a brick wall destroyed, you could bet that every single brick would be delineated.
The inker on Adams’s Longshot was a Filipino art school dropout named Whilce Portacio. Portacio was great at rendering details but needed improvement when it came to anatomy and perspective, so editor Carl Potts had him work over Adams’s pencils, hoping he could learn a thing or two along the way. In the meantime, Potts fed Portacio books like The Five C’s of Cinematography and kept him busy with work inking Alpha Flight. Shortly afterward, when Potts hired Jim Lee, an excessively polite, South Korean Ivy Leaguer, to draw Alpha Flight, the two artists meshed artistically and personally. Now Lee, too, got a copy of the cinematography book, and Potts drilled him on storytelling fundamentals, much like Denny O’Neil had with Frank Miller a decade earlier. Then Lee moved to San Diego and into a studio with Portacio. Their lives and careers were now entwined for good.

Here’s the cover to DAREDEVIL #5 by Wally Wood. Wood working for Marvel was such a big deal to Stan that he actually ran cover blurbs highlighting the fact on most of the books he started working on, which simply wasn’t done in those days.
