All Growed Up

Obssessed? Oh, yeah. I was gonzo over this house-ad announcing the arrival of a new era for the already excellent New Mutants title in 1984. I dismembered my copy of Marvel Age (the ad was used as a cover); I hung it on my wall; I tried to copy it by hand in my sketchbook. Being a mutant teenager had never looked so fucking rock star. As for the New Mutants' "new direction"? Thanks to Bill Sienkiewicz, the book looked liked it had been beamed in from another planet. I get all stupid just thinking about it. Volume 3 out now.
