Oh, Like You Haven't Seen This After One Too Many Fletcher's Corny Dogs
Back in December, we flashed back to ye olden days when The Dallas Times Herald and Marvel Comics would team up to take Spider-Man to the Dallas Ballet or the Hulk to Sanger-Harris (for new pants, natch). One title I completely forgot about: The Uncanny X-Men at the State Fair of Texas from 1983, now available for between $6.50 and $11 and totally worth it if only for, as Topless Robot sneered last year, "what we're sure is Professor X's lone utterance of 'Emergency! All X-Men to the Cotton Bowl!' in all of Marvel lore." The Fair opens tomorrow. A re-enactment of this cover is in order.
