Irene Vartanoff Clarifies Her Knowledge Of The Dispensation Of Marvel Comics Original Art

Here. Vartanoff was in charge of that part of Marvel's business for a time in the 1970s. That's very helpful to know. It's also a nice portrait of Marvel in the mid-1970s in terms of how they valued what they owned -- very little, to not at all. That was a very pernicious part of their culture and I think shaped a lot of their licensing deals and other-media arrangements for decades.
