I walked into WHS two days ago (September 30th) and saw the
latest issue of THE MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL (#4) sitting
on the shelves. Hard to believe that it was 42 years to the day since the
very first issue of the weekly incarnation of this periodical went on sale
in the U.K.. Cover-dated October 7th, 1972, it had actually appeared
in the shops a week earlier, to give it a full seven days shelf life
before the next issue came in.
So what delights does the currrent version contain to enthrall and
entertain its readers? You'll have to buy a copy to find out, because
the only strip I read these days is DAREDEVIL, which is top-notch
stuff. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that the other contents
aren't likewise excellent, but they fail to call out to me in the same
entrancing way that THE MAN WITHOUT FEAR does.
Okay, I've done my Marvel duty by showing you what the
mag looks like; it's now your turn as a dyed-in the-wool Marvelite
(assuming you are) to demonstrate your allegiance by running out
and buying a copy. Why are you still here? MWOM awaits!
And here are four more Mighty Marvel Mags currently on sale.
