Today in Comics History, August 8, 1961: The Atlas Monsters all go on unemployment

Oh no! Who's getting laid off? (Please don't look at the title of this post.)

from "Where Monsters Smell!" in Marvel #4 (Marvel, March 2021); script, pencils, and inks by Hilary Barta and Doug Rice; colors by Daniel Acuña; letters by Ariana Maher

Why, it's all the Atlas Era monsters! I say "laid off" 'coz some of them will get temp work a little later on.

And luckily for us, we never saw the sinister Dr. Droom, ever again. You hear me, Dr. Druid, voted worst Avenger of all time, even over Quicksilver?!? NEVER AGAIN!

But what event of August 8, 1961 could possibly force these big ol' galloots off the rampaging trail and into the unemployment line?

Well, don't look now, fellas, but here comes...THE MARVEL AGE...TODAY!

I had that issue of Incredible Hulk where he fought a bunch of old Atlas-era monsters, including the original GROOT (who was a lot more talkative then.)
