"And the Bronze Age Vision looked a heck of a lot like the Golden Age Vision, rather intentionally according to Roy Thomas, if I recall an interview I read correctly. During his run on the Avengers, he wanted to bring back the original Vision…"
"But Dr. Strange appeared on the cover of their 2nd lp, Saucerful of Secrets, and was referenced in a lyric in the song Cymbaline on the Soundtrack to the Film More (a relatively obscure album of songs from a far more obscure film which would be all…"
"And I got it when it was new on the comics racks at the Navy Exchange at NAS Lemoore, CA! HtD had quickly become one of my favorite comics after I discovered it, with the 4th issue. Alas, had missed the first 3 issues and his appearances…"
"With either coloring, that Billy the Kid as drawn looked nothing like any of the photographs of the historical William H. Bonney or Henry McCarty (his birth name) and seems highly unlikely to have ever worn anything similar to the style of clothes…"
