This is it! You can take a time-warping trip back to the nifty 1970 Marvel Comics Bullpen, thanks to sensational Steve Sherman! Steve took these pics during a tantalizing tour of the halcyon "House of Ideas," and here are his color images from this never-to-be-forgotten visit! Click each image below to enlarge, faithful ones!
|Above: Outside the magic factory!|
|Above: The hallowed halls themselves! Dig the then-current|
"MarvelMania" posters adorning the right wall!
|Above: Laughin' Larry Lieber (left) and jazzy John Romita, Sr. (right) seem |
less than excited, as they work on upcoming Marvel masterpieces!
|Above: A wall fulla greatness! Magazine publishers would often post their |
art, proofs, and finished magazines in this manner, in order to keep up
with each step of production!
|Above: Tony Isabella (on left, and soon to make his mark writing |
books such as DAREDEVIL) confers with rascally Roy Thomas (right)!
|Above three images: Master illustrator (best known for his stellar |
SPIDER-MAN run) John Romita, hard at work in the bullpen!
Here he labors over an issue of FANTASTIC FOUR, taking
over for the just-departed Jack Kirby!
|Above: Stu Schwartzberg on the job!|
|Above: Happy Herb Trimpe, famed long-running HULK |
artist, hard at work! Or maybe just napping….?
|Above: Dig those titles! Every one a winner!|

his trademarked hairpiece!
