A Certain Age

One of the reasons why I was excited by having Marv Wolfman and Len Wein at CONvergence this July is that for those of us who really first came to comics between, say, 1975 and 1985, the odds are really, really high that the first superhero comic you got, whether it was for DC or Marvel, was either written by or edited by one or the other of them.

I knew that Marv Wolfman was writing for Fantastic Four around issue 200, when I first started to read the comic regularly, but when I picked up Fantastic Four Visionaries: George Perez, Vol. 1 today, I discovered that Len Wein was writing for it before that, with some of the earliest comics that I ever got, when they would be packaged up in random groups of three, where you'd see what two of the issues were, but the third would be a surprise.
