Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies was a documentary comic strip that ran in the pages of the Village Voice for just over twenty years starting in 1974. Its creator and author, Stan Mack, created the strip by overhearing and transcribing conversations between real people and then dramatizing them on the page. And in this particular strip, he captures a plot conference for INCREDIBLE HULK ANNUAL #8. The participants in the strip are editor Al Milgrom (bald with beard), assistant editor Jo Duffy (the lady), editor in chief Jim Shooter (the super-tall guy) and writer Roger Stern (dark hair, mustache and glasses.) Roger was still on staff as an editor at this point in time, which is why he has an office in the building that everybody can go to.
I have no idea how Mack would have been in attendance to overhear this plot conference, but given how open-doored and loosy-goosy the Marvel of the 1980s was with security, it’s certainly not out of the question that he was. And the conversation as reported here does appear genuine to my ear. Quite possibly somebody at Marvel (Roger?) was hoping to do a project with Mack, but such a thing never materialized.
