A great, though somewhat spoilery review of Django Unchained that demonstrates not only scholarship of Tarantino’s works, but that his works are worthy of scholarship. Django is, in my opinion, his best film yet. He takes the “historical revisionist” bent that he began with “Inglourious Basterds” and uses it to cast a light on the ugliness of slavery that is affecting, while adding in the romantic high-adventurism of “The Princess Bride.”

Another page from the very first Spider-man story, from AMAZING FANTASY #15. Art by Steve Ditko.
On my massive scan, you can make out a few things:
In panel one, the word OVER wasn’t originally bolded—that was done as a correction.
in panel three, the first balloon had to be reworked and relettered to make enough space for the second balloon.
In panel 5, there’s a handwritten note from Stan to Ditko:
STEVE - MAKE THIS A GLOOMY BACK ALLEY SO NO ONE CAN SEE HIM!
The originals to this story now reside with the Library of Congress.
