Wait, Mr. Postman, Look and See...
Today we thought it would be fun to take a stroll down our comics-loving memory lane. We're looking at letter columns and the oft-creative titles to those necessary-reading pages. After loving on the artwork below, let us know what you think. Did you regularly read the letters pages? What did you think of the writers and editorial responses? Were there any letters that were memorable? Did you ever have a letter published?
By the way, you may notice that a) this is not an inclusive list, and b) we've left out some heavy hitters, like the Avengers and the Fantastic Four. We will be running a follow-up post with some of Marvel's big guns, taking an historical look at those letters pages. Stay tuned for that.
