"Guess who just called? Wouldja believe Wandering Wally Wood? (We used to call him Wondrous till he took off for parts unknown.)
Anyway, after a long powwow there's a chance that you'll be seeing WW's wizardry between the covers of some Marvel mags once again - where it has always belonged! (Now if only a cat named S.D. would dig up our phone number again! - Oh well, we can always dream!)"

December 1969

"With the most profound regret, we sorrowfully announce the untimely death of George Klein.
George had been associated with the Bullpen for a period spanning more than two decades as both penciller and inker. He was also a gifted painter, a valued friend, and a gentleman in the truest sense of the word."

November 1969

"You asked for it - and even if you didn't, you got it! For several years we've been receiving boatloads of requests to do an up-to-date photo feature on all our Bullpen yahoos![...]
You can hang 'em loose - hang 'em on a wall - or hang 'em in effigy - but buy a few copies, okay? We've gotta make enough extra dough to pay for a cracked Polaroid!"

October 1969

"Starting as soon as possible, we're abandoning our policy of continued stories! Yep, that means we'll try to make every Marvel masterwork complete in each issue! [...]
It's gonna make our job much tougher - we'll have to shorten our plots - perhaps tone down on our sub-plots, and tighten our pacing. But it's the least we can do for our rollickin' readers, and it'll be fun to see how it works out."

September 1969

"Have you noticed that our x-travagantly x-citing X-Men sagas are back to 20 full pages again? When we saw the powerful, pulsatin' pencil-work of Nefarious Neal Adams - not to mention the incredible inking of Terrific Tom Palmer - we figured that it would be a crime to deprive a wildly waiting world those extra five pages!"

From Captain America, Vol. 1, No. 117

August 1969

"It's finally reached the point where we MUST raise our selling price to 15¢ [From 12¢] or sacrifice the quality of our comics - and THAT we would never do...
But now, let's look at the bright side - today you can buy your majestic Marvel mags even faster... 'cause you don't have to fumble around with pennies!
Just another glowing example of how we strive eternally to make your life easier."
