  2. Right about 117. And 120/129 both have Cap figures pretty much entirely redrawn by Marie Severin.

  3. The Colan/Wood issue deserves a look - and wasn't there a couple Colan/Everett's?

  4. what hurt Colens run was marvels foolish move to cut back on continued stories,resulting in a year or twos worth of mostly lack luster single issue stories.
