This Date in History: January 1984 Assistant Editors' Month

Beware: It's Assistant Editors' Month! Don't Say We Didn't Warn You!
In 1984, Marvel Comics had Assistant Editors' Month under the premise that the editors were away at a convention and the assistant editors had free reign to do as they pleased. This resulted in some memorable, wacky or just plain terrible stories.    

The comics were cover dated January 1984.  

Here are the ones I own....plus the black and white, pencil version of one of my favorites.....

During the fight in this story, there are 5 pages without any drawings, as it takes place during during a snow storm... just thought balloons and sound effects.

"Hey Guys, I know it's Assistant Editor Month, but let's not do anything too silly on the cover -
