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.
