Blogging From A To Z: N is for

No-Prize


According to Wikipedia, "No-Prize is a faux award given out by Marvel Comics to readers. Originally for those who spotted continuity errors in the comics... As the No-Prize evolved, it was...only awarded when a reader successfully explained why the continuity error was not an error at all."


The above book, published in 1982, collected some of the best, straight-up errors from Marvel Comics up to that point...some are better than others....the book is "narrated" by Stan Lee....the little yellow boxzes highlight the errors...
