The Savage Land TPB (1987) with cover art by John Buscema. This trade paperback reprints Marvel Fanfare nos. 1-4, which are still my favorite Savage Land stories of all time. With Chris Claremont writing and a who’s who of fan-favorite X-Men artists, including Michael Golden, Dave Cockrum, Bob McLeod, Paul Smith and Terry Austin, the story is a wild and thoroughly enjoyable ride.
Go melt back into the night, babe, Everything inside is made of stone. There’s nothing in here moving And anyway I’m not alone. You say you’re looking for someone Who’ll pick you up each time you fall To gather flowers constantly And to come each time you call, A lover for your life and nothing more, But it ain’t me, babe, No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe. It ain’t me you’re looking for.
