Marvel 35 cent Price Variants
Sunday, July 18, 2004 10:05:09 PM
Below is a complete list of all the 1977 Marvel comics which had 35 cent
variant covers. Once again, much of the information included was first
gathered by Jon McClure, and was published in several issues of Comic
Book Marketplace. As with the 30 cent variants, it is believed that
there is a 35 cent variant for every book Marvel published for five
months prior to the actual price increase to 35 cents. As far as I know,
however, this has not been proven, for certain. For example, only

Hola Mi Gente:
My name is Raul Santos, and native Puerto Rican from New York city,Brooklyn.
I've been a admirer of your work for a long time and you while John Bryne are my
The reason I am writing this post is because being I was quite shock to learn
that since your creation of "White Tiger" being the first Puerto Rican Hero.
There really hasn't been one since. I heard there was a female "white tiger" but
its just a spinoff of the original character. So I decided to get a fellow
Boricuas together and Create a "New" Puerto Rican Hero. I think the public is
ready for such a hero and so far my team has come up with some interesting
ideas. I want to also add that what we are doing is not for fame or fortune, but
out of Pure Pride of Puerto Rico. I was wondering if you had any advice for us
in regards to this assignment. Gracias mi gente por todos que tu echo para poner
la Isla de encanto en la mapa.
