Famous Fanmail #140 Ralph Macchio

Filed under: Famous Fanmail — Doorman @ 6:00 am

You may not be surprised to learn that most people in the comic business grew up reading comic books. However, you might be interested in knowing what they were reading. Here’s a look at “Famous Fanmail”!

Marvel’s Frankenstein Monster was originally set in the 1800s but they were considering bringing the monster into the present. Then-future comic book editor, Ralph Macchio, got a letter printed in Frankenstein Monster #12 (cover date – September 1974), weighing in on the debate. Marvel didn’t listen, though, and they managed to bring the monster into the present a few months later. Oh! And that Spider-Man team-up, he’s dreading? It happened in Marvel Team-Up #36 (cover date – August 1975).
