4/20 SPECIAL: A COMPLETE HISTORY OF ‘FASTLANE,’ MARVEL’S AMAZING ANTI-MARIJUANA COMIC
By Chris Sims
If you were reading Marvel Comics in 1999, you read Fastlane. For four solid months, it was absolutely unavoidable, an eight-page anti-marijuana insert that would pop up right in the middle of every single Marvel Comic to let you know about the dangers of weed, a drug that was glorified in the media and would lead users to a dangerous world of addiction and deadly hallucinations that was so over the top even the producers of Dragnetthought that maybe they should tone it down a little. And if you’re a certain kind of person who was reading Marvel Comics in the ’90s, you actually kind of love it.

I mean, I do. And that’s why, with 4/20 and all its attendant celebrations coming up this weekend, it’s time for a look back on  what might actually be the highest circulating (and most bizarre) Marvel Comic of all time with a Complete Oral History of Fastlane, from artist Gregg Schigiel, Editor Steve Behling, Head of Marvel Creative Services Mike Thomas, and Senior Vice President for Strategic Promotions and Advertising John Fraser.

READ MORE. OH SO MUCH MORE.

John Buscema and Al Williamson’s Wolverine # 01 cover art process, as well as the original art for the HouseAd and a poster I haven’t seen before.

…And because Giuseppe Camuncoli is CRAZY good as a draftsman alone, but Marte Gracia’s coloring is what made this the cover artwork for Daken # 07.

One of my favorite Wolverine pieces ever!
