Miscellaneous Reprints (1970-2000s)

In the 1970s and early 80s, Marvel Comics inserted reprints into their monthly titles when they couldn't meet deadlines. Depending on the original story length, either framing pages were added or cuts were made.

Usually the reprints had some connection to the original comic but some choices baffle me (e.g. the Sub-Mariner story in Luke Cage #15). There were also some giant-size issues (e.g. Iron Man #43) in which the reprints were used to fill the page count.

There is one exception to the pattern: Thor #158. First, it was published in 1968. Second, it sets up the storyline for the next issue. So it doesn't seem like a last-minute addition. In any case, it is listed here for completeness.

On the other hand, the 1990s and 2000s reprints were purposely included in giant-sized anniversary issues and should be complete. See also the 100 page Monsters for reprints in the 2000s.

Marvel also published many b&w magazines in the 1970s. These stories were not covered by the Comics Code and are mostly non-continuity. They do contain some reprints so I'm listing them here. (Thanks to Barry Pearl & the GCD for the info.)
