A few years later, several top-selling Marvel artists would break from the
pack and form a new company called Image. In doing so, they would shift the

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
