So, I recently discovered The Newsstand feature at Mike’s Amazing World. If you’re not familiar with the site, you pick the month and year, and Mike spits out all the comics published that month. It’s the ultimate nostalgia bomb. Lacking anything more important to say, today we’re setting the coordinates for March 1987 (a randomly chosen destination, for sure), when I was 17 years old.
