Comic Book Legends Revealed #400 (Part 3)

Welcome to the four hundredth in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false. This week, in honor of the four hundredth edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed, you’ll get a TRIPLE-sized column this week, in three parts (Friday, yesterday and tomorrow). The special theme this week will be that I will feature one legend that was suggested to me in each of the nine years that I’ve been doing the column, so a legend someone suggested in 2005, a legend from 2006, etc. All the way up to 2013, which is less than a week old! Today, we learn how Jackie Onassis was briefly the world’s most famous comic book editor. Plus, how did a minor continuity gaffe lead to a classic Adam Strange story? And was Alan Moore’s Top 10: The Forty-Niners originally meant to be a mini-series?
