There’s also a note from Stan to production man Sol Brodsky asking for a correction:

    At the New York Creation Con in 1971, Gerry Conway promised an upcoming Sub-Mariner story in which the hero “meets up with a New Orleans hooker, goes into a New Orleans cathouse, and does the whole routine with the pimp there. We felt that that was a little strong, so we changed that into something that’s cleaner … they’re all drug addicts now. The Comics Code accepted that.”

    From “Panther’s Quest, Part VI” in Marvel Comics Presents #18, May 1989. Art by Gene Colan and Tom Palmer. Words by Don McGregor.
"Panther’s Quest" has never been collected; the stories are scattered in eight-page installments that are no longer in print. But McGregor and Colan’s "Detectives, Inc." stories are collected here. 
Roughly 20 more copies need to be sold before Don McGregor’s royalties start kicking in. He and his family have had a number of health issues lately, so he could definitely use some extra income. Do you think we can make that happen before the holidays? If you reblog this, we can get the word out.
