And here is my newest Millie the Model cover and some more "What IF."
Long-time Mavelites may remember that Millie the Model switched gears between 153 and 154, shifting back to humour and a more cartoony look.
I used to wondered why Gary Friedrich and Bill Williams were abruptly kicked off the title and Stan the Man (who had little time for writing off-trail books) was suddenly scripting it again with Stan Goldberg.
Well, WHAT IF Groovy Gary had planned a new storyline in which Spidey's old foe came back for revenge (remember MTM #124?) by stealing Millie's life while she was still in Liverpool?
And Stan was so freaked by the idea that he yanked the contents at the 11th hour and had to take over the book himself again.
[And of course Jazzy Johnny Romita's scrapped cover was later reworked into OUR LOVE STORY #4 natch.]
Anyhoo, here is my version of that "lost" fable. And if anyone's interested, I also have the next 6 covers of the "storyline" to post sometime down the road.
