Marvel Treasury Edition No. 29 by Severin & Tartaglione

If you were reading comics between 1975 and 1980 or so, tabloid-sized comics were a wonderful thing to find on the newsstand. Oversized with cardstock covers, they most often reprinted older material. Seeing some of your favourite stories printed big was an awesome thing to experience.

Tabloids are still done as special events, and the time when DC and Marvel published them regularly has passed, but for people who love them, we can still hope for more of those original series.

So, in that spirit, Marvel Treasury Edition‘s last issue might not have been No. 28. Is it possible that there were more issues being prepared in the Marvel Bullpen?
