STAN’S SOAPBOX 

Hi, Heroes! Even though Christmas is 
behind us, big-hearted Marvel still has 
plenty of goodies in store for you! And 
here's where your old faithful Soapbox 
Santa clues you in to two new titles going 
on sale right now! 

You’ve seen the ads! You’ve heard the 
name uttered in whispers! But now it’s 
time to meet the newest, most exotically 
exciting superstar in the mightly Marvel 
firmament—the only super hero based 
on a real-life, flesh-and-blood human 
being— dazzling, dangerous, deadly — a 
smoldering, sizzling stick of human dyna¬ 
mite—the one and only NIGHT CAT! 

Of course, the cat’s manager, Dapper 
Don Kessler, and I have a somewhat 
selfish motive for pushing Night Cat’s first 
issue since sneaky artist Denys Cowan 
actually drew us in as part of the story. 
Yours truly wrote the script, too, which 
could possibly change the complexion of 
the comic book industry for all time ‘ 


come! But don’t let that discourage you— 
you can always just look at the pictures! 

But hey, that’s only half the excitement! 
Our whole blushin’ Bullpen is turned on to 


I t was a rainy day in New York. The kind 
of day when you could get wet just 
by walking outside. The man on the 
corner was selling umbrellas for five dol¬ 
lars each. I could usually talk him down to 
three. When I got home, I would throw it on 
the pile with the 300 other umbrellas I’ve 
managed to leave at home every time it 
rains, it seems to rain a lot in New York. 
Perhaps it’s God’s way of trying to give the 
city an acid bath. Perhaps not. That’s not 
for me to say. Me, I’m just another private 
eye. They call me Dodge Deadline. . . 
Comic Book Detective. 

It was a slow day at the office: I was just 
about to seriously consider calling up that 
guy on TV who makes the pitch for Apex 
Technical School. Then he walked in — 
Torn DeFalco, head honcho over at Marvel 
Comics. He had a problem, and he needed 
my help. Last month's Bullpen Bulletins 
Page had disappeared before it had ever 
seen print. He wanted me to find it. I took 
the case. Tom took the six-pack. 

I headed uptown to the offices of Marvel 
Comics. If I was going to learn anything 
abcut the missing Bullpen Page, this was 
the place to do it. My first stop was the 
office of PUNISHER editor Don Daley. 

Don told me he was exhausted — he 
wag still resting up from the New York 
Runners Club's Midnight Run. That's a run 
thafs held every year, beginning at exactly 
twdve midnight on New Year's Day. Don 
also entered the New York Marathon last 
year for the first time. It seemed like he'd 
be<n doing a lot of running lately. Just 
what exactly was he running from, any- 
waj>? I listed Don as a suspect, and 
mq/ed on. 

(stopped by Ralph Macchio’s office, 
and found Ralph’s assistant, Mike Heisler, 
stil missing after a mysterious three- 
mcnth absence. Heisler allegedly is tak¬ 
ing some time off to do some freelance 
letering; something about owing a debt to 
hi) uncle. Funny, I didn’t know Heisler’s 
uncle was named “Sam”. Another poten- 
tid suspect. 

I stopped in to see Jim Salicrup, but he 
wts so deliriously happy, he couldn't even 



Troma Films’ wild and wacky world-famous 
movie idol, TOXIC AVENGER, the super 
hero who makes Spider-Man seem like a 
well-adjusted average guy! In fact, we dig 
it so much that we made a deal with Lova¬ 
ble Lyoyd Kaufman and the Magnanim¬ 
ous Michael Herz, The big-time movie pro¬ 
ducers who so unselfishly unleashed ol’ 
Toxie on a defenseless public, a deal to 
publish his sensationally screwy adven¬ 
tures in our maniacal style! 

Be forewarned! Toxie is not your usual 
hero! In fact, he’s not your usual anything. 
But this you can count on—NIGHT CAT 
and THE TOXIC AVENGER may turn out 
to be the most unexpected hits of ’91, and, 
thanks to my legendary generosity, you’re 
the first to hear of them! 

Now, till next ish, wherever you go, 
whatever you do, think Marvel! (Instead of 
cluttering your mind with non-essentials!) 

1 Excelsior! 



talk to me, Dodge Deadlihe. It seemed one 
of Jim’s freelancers, Fred Hembeck, re¬ 
cently had a baby with his lovely wife 
Lynn. The child was born on August 25th, 
and named Julie Elizabeth Moss Hembeck. 
That’s a lot of names for a little kid. In his 
present state, there was no talking to 
Salicrup, so I made a mental note to track 
him down later. 

I noticed my mental pen was getting low 
on mental ink, so I made another mental 
note to stop by a mental store later and 
pick up some more. 

I headed over to see Craig Anderson, 
Marvel's resident vidiot. Craig gave me the 
lowdown on the new Silver Surfer home 
video game from Nintendo, and the Spider- 
Man home game from Sega-Genesis. Craig 
added that the Spider-Man hand-held 
game from Gameboy is also a big, big hit. 
Craig talked about a potential Spider-Man 
arcade game, but he seemed to be dodg¬ 
ing the real issue. Did Craig know some¬ 
thing about the missing Bullpen Page— 
something he wasn’t telling me, Dodge 
Deadline ? 

Craig threw me a few names —Jim 
Starlin, George Perez. I caught them. He 
said they were working on a project which 
just might blow the lid off this whole case. 
But Starlin and Perez were nowhere to be 
found. Apparently they'd gone into hiding 
to work on this hush-hush project. All I 
found about this mystery project was that 
it involved a dangerous customer by the 
name of Thanos. . .as well as almost 
everybody in the Marvel Universe. Clearly 
I was on to something big.. .but that 
wasn’t the case I was working on. I’d have 
to come back to that some other day; I still 
hadn’t found that Bullpen Page. 

Assistant Editor Chris Cooper walked 
by me, Dodge Deadline, in the hall. I over¬ 
heard him tell fellow assistant Len Kaminsky 
he’s never been mentioned in the Bullpen 
Page before. Len said that made two of 
them. Hmm—that gives them both mo¬ 
tives, but very flimsy ones. 

I started snooping around Bob Budian- 
sky's office. But Bob wasn't talking. 
Neither was his assistant, Tom Brevoort. 


All I could get out of them was that they’re 
doing a newsstand reprint of the four-issue 
DEATHLOK Limited Series, and working 
on the 1991 Marvel trading cards. 

That was all well and good, but it didn't 
solve my case. I paid a visit to Epic Editor 
Marcus McLaurin, who was happy as a 
clambake about the fourth anniversary of 
the Comic Illustrators Guild at the Pratt 
School of Art and Design. It seems Marcus 
formed the club while in his senior year at 
the school, to pave the way for future gen¬ 
erations of artists to get away with drawing 
comics in class. 

He’s one sharp cucumber, that Marcus, 
but no Bullpen Page-napper. Next I noticed 
his assistant, Marie Javins. Marie’s wall is 
decorated with drawings of cows by some 
of the biggest names in comics. But Marie 
threatened to take down her Wall of Boun¬ 
tiful Bovines if she received no new sub¬ 
missions soon. Would Marie’s wall come 
tumbling down? Unfortunately, I couldn’t 
stick around to find out. 

I could’ve pumped people at Marvel for 
answers all day, but I was cruising in the 
fast lane to nowhere. Everyone was a po¬ 
tential suspect. I decided I would switch 
tactics. 

I charmed my way into Marvel’s master 
computer file. If there was any trace left of 
the Bullpen Page, I knew I would find it 
here. I punched up the file, and there it 
was—the December Bullpen Page. It 
was just full of all kinds of incriminating 
evidence about the Marvel staff. If this 
thing ever saw print, it would destroy sev¬ 
eral careers, a couple marriages, and the 
noon trade at Slappy Sam’s Eat ’n’ Run. 
No wonder someone tried to suppress it. 
This thing was hotter than a jalapeno pep¬ 
per in a sauna. 

I decided to take the disc to DeFalco. If 
anyone knew I had this disc, I could start 
etching my own epitaph. Just then, I felt 
the cold steel of the barrel of a .45 press 
against the back of my neck... 

IS THIS THE END OF DODGE DEADLINE? 
YOU WISH.
