      I’m curious if anyone knows, are these E characters in “EAGLES” hand-drawn modifications, or did the original  Marvin come with these alternate E’s?

      I don’t recall seeing such alternates, but I’ll ping Mathieu, the designer of Marvin Visions, whom I consider the authority on all things Marvin. One thing’s for sure: designers love(d) to customize Marvin, see e.g. the A Date With Swing cover.

      I believe that E is actually the £ sign that’s been flipped on its head.

      This is the original £ sign from the Letraset release.


      And if you flip it.



      Extend it a little bit to join up the A and S and tada! Marvin has proven quite flexible in that way. For instance here the V shape has been reused to make other letters.
