TIME TRAVEL A REALITY!
Caught your attention with that title, eh? However, it's not
entirely untrue; you may not physically be able to travel through
time, but you can mentally. Case in point: when I gaze upon the
accompanying cover from 44 years ago, or - even better, thumb
through the actual comic - I find my mind transported back to
the month of April, in the year of our Lord, 1967.
To such an extent, in fact, that it's almost as if I'm back
in the house I lived in at that time; that shops which are no
longer around today still exist; that friends who have since died
are merely a telephone call away. So immersed in halcyon days
of yesteryear do I become that, when I look up from the comic's
pages and find myself in the house I live in today, I'm almost
momentarily surprised by the fact. Anyone else ever feel
the same, or am I just bonkers?
Okay, okay. I'm just bonkers then. It wouldn't
have hurt for you to lie, would it?
