The Marvel Age of Comics
The opening splash page to X-MEN #8 by Jack Kirby and Chic Stone.
You can see Stan’s original placements and rough copy still in pencil on the board, including a blurb at the top that he apparently decided not to use that says:
KNOWN TO THE WORLD AS
There was another arrow-shaped caption on the left that Stan likewise thought the better of.
It’s also clear here that Chic Stone changed Marvel Girl’s mask back into a full hood.
A few fragments of Kirby’s border notes also remain:
X-MEN IN POST-GRADUATE
