Those Bombastic Bullpen Bulletins

One of the fun things about reading comic books from decades past are the in-house ads and annoucements.

For Marvel books of the 70's and 80's, it doesn't get any better than the good old Bullpen Bulletins!

Most of the time it just reads like Stan Lee wrestling with his thesaraus, heaping compliments on just about any book no matter what the quality. But even a broken clock is right twice a day, as every once in a while his lavish praise landed on a book well deserving of it.

This was one of those instances, as that particular Iron Man story is widely considered to be one of the best Iron Man stories ever told. Even now, some thirty years later, the Demon In A Bottle storyline is being given the nifty hardcover treatment.

One of these decades I'll get around to actually reading it.
