Real-Life Lilandra

Amy pointed out this lovely Myspace weblog entry from a lady who subs at the Arlington Library, and who, in her youth, dated the late X-Men artist Dave Cockrum. Last month she brought a Cockrum cover to Antiques Roadshow: I am finally bringing my cover to X-Men #99. My one wild oat was that I […]
