Forgery for the Holidays

It's been a while between drinks but it's always a delight to wake up and find an email from the Former DC Staffer in the inbox waiting to go. This one is a Christmas themed message.


Forgery for the Holidays

During the '80s both DC and Marvel used to have very small holiday parties. There was never very much money for these events but they were always welcome. One year Marvel did exceptionally well and decided to have a staff only party and handed out special invitations to the event. A production staff artist at DC was determined to get in so borrowing a Marvel staffers invite he spent two days in the DC production department constructing an exact forgery. It was positively perfect once completed but most of us thought he’d get caught for sure.

The next day we asked how the Marvel party was and he said it was a BLAST!

Ingenuity at its best. Happy Holidays!
