Desc:In 1965, Marvel Comics sent out a record to the fans. Steve Ditko's cameo is priceless.

I look forward to the "A Bunch of Cranky Jews" tag blossoming.

Man, being a nerd was hard work back then.

Better than the Beatles Christmas records. I'd love to have a copy of this on vinyl - it would be the midpoint between my 7" collection and my 60s Marvel office swag (unmailed NoPrizes, etc).

your no-prize makes my beard tingle with envy.

Stopheles - 2009-01-29
I actually got a few No-Prizes in the 80s, when they weren't mailing anything out anymore (I helped them cover a miscolored detail on Hobgoblin's costume in one issue of ASM, and a tattoo discrepancy in an issue of G.I.JOE), but the actual physical NoPrizes are awesome.

They're small envelopes with pictures of superheroes and big block letters reading "OFFICIAL NO-PRIZE ENCLOSED," which were (of course) mailed empty.

Again, I adore 60s Marvel's sense of company identity.

That is awesome - I've seen scans of them etc. before, but I had no idea they quit actually mailing them out that early - I knew it was kind of a done deal by the 90s, and I don't think they even acknowledge it now.

This whole thing is such an awesome weird corporate identity - hey kids, listen to this record in which the guys who make your comic books engage in REALLY stilted readings of old vaudeville routines! It's all so ridiculous and forced-collegian that you would almost believe that all these guys didn't end up fucking hating each other's guts.

I would also believe that much of that hate was predicated on being forced to do this album.

Flo wouldn't read her lines right so they hired Edie McClurg?

Flo Steinberg's pretty hot.

Except for the part where she's Edith Bunker.

Amazing. Ditko is a proto-Steve Sutton. Billions of stars for Jack Kirby and Wally Wood appearing on the same record.

Truly extraordinary.
