The return of the Marvel Value Stamps, you read about that on Bleeding Cool – okay, just a couple of days ago, along with the launch of Marvel Legacy #1. But it still meant you were a couple of days ahead on both.

And the return of FOOM, the Friends Of 'Ol Marvel official fanclub magazine from the mid-seventies? You read about that on…
