I love the pseudo Stan Lee phrasing. How many Marvel comics covers had the "If this be..." construction at work?
Hi Jim! Probably not NEARLY as many as we THINK we remember. Like when I went looking for Carmine Infantino "head to head/lineup of team versus lineup of team" cover. Just Google Image search Infantino. You won't be able to swing a dead cat without...without...erm. What issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE WAS that one?
There are a few beauties:If This Be My Destiny! - Amazing Spiderman 31If This Be Doomsday! - Fantastic Four 49If This Be...MODOK! - Marvel Double FeatureIf This Be...Ragnarok! - Thor 200If This Be Terrax! - Fantastic Four 211It goes on. The phrasing gets borrowed for titles of plenty of blogs and articles too. Fun stuff.
Well done! I used to know three of those, anyway!
