Issue 40, page 10.
Artist: Ron Wilson
Inker: Pablo Marcos
How much Wilson/Marcos art can one guy own? This piece was up for sale at The Artists Choice for many many moons and though I craved it for the quintessential Benjy sense of humor, I passed on it for a couple years because I already have several pages by this art team. Eventually, it sold. To a speculator who promptly put it right up on Ebay in June of 2005. So, while I could ignore it while it sat there, knowing it was about to vanish for good I picked it up (rewarding the speculator to the tune of probably a $10 profit).
So, here you are. I still love this scene- Ben being a good samaritan but falling asleep in the back of T'Challa's class (yes, that is the Black Panther teaching here, by the by), and the kids who are just as "rotten" as Ben ever was making him pay the price for it, and paying the price in turn. I just love the sense of humor in MTIO at about this period of time...
