Iron Man #72 (1975): The Comic Con Issue!

For the first time, comic book conventions get recognized in a Marvel comic.  The credits page has this: “Story plot by Barry Alfonso, San Diego, Calif.”  I’m assuming he worked for SDCC.

Iron Man visits the con.  There’s tons of creators who are name-dropped and/or drawn in, and I’m going to say that there’s a DC crossover.  I know they’re green, but in the panel above I see Shazam in a classic pose and what looks to me like Batman from behind.

Creators: Mike Friedrich, Barry Alfonso, George Tuska
Grade: C+.  It’s really not that good, but it’s fun so it bumps from a D.
