I remember these issues as if I read them yesterday. Amazing how much action there was in these books. Not a whole lot of unnecessary dialogue for dialogues sake and to setup 5 other books.

A few observations:

- The inking on this issue was a major disappointment to me. Sal inked himself on ROM 1 to 17. I think he was penciling The Incredible Hulk, Captain America & penciling/inking ROM Spaceknight when this came out. I could be wrong as we may be up to the era in The Incredible Hulk where he started inking himself. Whatever happened, there must have been deadline issues, so Sal, Al Milgrom & Frank Garcia all inked certain pages, which I've notated under each image. To the kid I was, this made the art look very disjointed. Al Milgrom is not a good compliment to Sal & surprisingly, one of my favorite Silver Age inkers, Frank Garcia isn't either.

- Pretty neat that a legend, like Frank Garcia, inked Wolverine! I had no idea he was still working in the 80s!

- It was nice to see a young Kitty as I was posting these. It takes me back to when I first started collecting X-Men & she was such a kid. Good times!

- It still amazes me that it was ROM Spaceknight that introduced me to Wolverine & the X-Men!

Agreed. A two part crossover accomplished everything a stretched out $3.99 an issue 12 part maxi series would do now.
