Star Wars: Return of the Jedi #3
Here we’ve got a classified page that’s (pretty much) full of comics. Here’s your chance to find all those back issues you’re looking for!
The single non-comic ad here is for Mazewarps – “24 Challenging Videomaze Games in a Book.” I’m a bit confused by this – how can they be video if they’re in a book? Maybe it’s a book on how to program games on a computer? Any of you out there know what the deal with Mazewarps is?
I have a passing familiarity with X-Men and some of their storylines, but am far from an expert. However, according to this ad, apparently Professor X died in 1994/’95!
Considering that this store is holding a memorial service, it seems like it was a pretty big deal at the time, but did anyone really think he was gone for good? Comic book deaths are so fleeting, especially for main characters – I’m always at least a little suspicious when someone “dies” in a comic.

Marvel Super Mart – a collection of independent retailers where you can get all your Marvel favorites! …If you happen to be in one of six select states or one province.
Considering that you couldn’t exactly go online and order back issues at the time, I wonder just how helpful this would’ve been to collectors. Did any of you respond to ads like these back in the day?
G.I. Joe #33
Considering how huge and insane comic conventions have become in the last decade or so, sometimes it’s hard to imagine that they haven’t always been gigantic media spectacles. This simple list of upcoming events from Creation almost seems quaint.
I wish they had prices listed – I’d love to be able to compare it to today’s tickets!
