Al Milgrom says goodbye in this, the final issue of Fanfare. And admits it was a place to sell you old inventory.
As an issue of the book, this one is fairly typical. There’s the good (Walt Simonson and Denys Cowan on Black Panther)…
There’s the really old and therefore a little hard to follow for “current” readers: A story of Rogue and Mystique that explores Rogue’s personality back when she was an evil mutant (by Ann Nocenti and Dave Ross).
And finally an out-of-character, and mediocre, story of a guy who already has his own solo book, Daredevil by Paul Smith (which of course has great art). Issue #1 had a story about Daredevil helping a Salvation Army Santa. This story brings that character back for one more tale. Very nice bookends.
And some pin-ups. The above is the final image from Marvel Fanfare.
Rest in peace.
