Marvel Funnies: Marie Severin Roasts Wein, Cockrum, Claremont Over New X-Men

I found this while researching the launch of the new X-Men in 1975.  Foom #10 had a special X-Men issue, and Marie Severin drew this great cartoon:

Cockrum, Wein, Claremont burned alive by fans for New X-Men, 1975, by Marie Severin in Foom 10

Severin drew Len Wein, Chris Claremont, and Dave Cockrum getting roasted alive by Marvel's fans--for replacing the classic X-Men team in Giant-Size X-Men #1.  They were indeed apprehensive about kicking out Angel, Marvel Girl, and Iceman!  No one could foresee the tremendous success that would befall upon the new and improved X-Men.  Nuff said.
