Today in Comics History: New Orleans? Not really a party town. Though if I remember correctly, they occasionally hold a function called Marty's...something.

Happy Mardi Gras, everybody! In the words of everybody's favorite* New Orleans guy, Gambit, laissez les bon temps roulez!

Panels from "The Reprehensible Riddle of...the Sorcerer!" in Marvel Super-Heroes #14 (May 1968), script by Stan Lee, pencils by Ross Andru, inks by Bill Everett, colors by Stan Goldberg, letters by Sam Rosen

* Hey, it's his one and only cultural holiday. Let's let him have a "favorite" just this once.
