Super Milestone Issue

Last week’s mega-sized Captain America #600 is indeed a special milestone, for the series as well as for Marvel.

The comic has a two-page essay with illustrations by Captain America co-creator Joe Simon, titled “My Bulletin Board,” which comes not with one, but with two copyright notes saying that the material on these two pages belongs, in fact, to Joseph H. Simon.

Which means that—contrary to virtually everything else Marvel publishes—it can’t be reproduced by the company without the express consent of its author.

On that note, I wish you a good Independence Day.
