This Month In History

This has been a CRAZY week!  I had a HUGE project due for my Masters Class which required me staying at school each night this past week until 10:00.  Progress Reports went out on Friday.  Our students started our final end of the year project, which is my baby, so I had to go to each of the fifth grade classrooms to introduce it...and I still had to teach my regular classes.

That being said, I missed my May 1st comic cover post.  So, 3 days late but here are some comics I own with May cover dates.

May 1964
My oldest issue of "The Avengers".  I'm fairly certain I got it at a convention held on UVM's campus in the mid-1980s.  If memory serves, it was in the same building the majority of my classes were held when I eventually attended UVM in the early 1990s.

May 1965
My oldest X-Men comic.  This I got so very cheap when I first started buying back issues.

May 1973
This is the storyline where Doctor Doom stiffs Luke Cage out of a $200 payment, leading to Cage going on a mission of revenge to Latveria. You can read more about it here.  The payoff issue includes one of my favorite panels of all time.
"Where's my money, honey?"

And that's all I can do today...
