Stan Lee! 1978 CIRCUS Magazine Article and Pics! MarvelMania! Hulk! Spidey! Beatles?!

Another blast from Marvel's best years! Dig this neat 1978 Marvel article, from the venerated rock magazine, CIRCUS! Once again, figurehead Stan Lee holds court (tho, at the time, he was more and more distanced from the comics line), bringing his hot-aired hype to such projects as the mega-successful BEATLES and KISS mags, the CBS HULK TV show, and other morsels of multi-marketed merchandised Marvelmania! The company was still sort of a "seat-of-the-pants" operation then, producing some wild and wonderful books and concepts, and this was truly one of the most exciting eras of Marvel madness!
