MIGHTY MARVEL MAGIC...
For no other reason than that it's a brilliant cover from my youth, above
is THE MIGHTY WORLD OF MARVEL #9, pencilled by JIM STARLIN and
inked (it looks to me, but I'm guessing) by JOE SINNOTT. Dated December
2nd 1972, it actually went on sale the previous week on November 25th,
which was the day I saw a double bill of JAMES BOND movies starring SEAN CONNERY at my local cinema. Weren't we Brits spoiled? KIRBY
and DITKO art on classic stories of THE HULK, SPIDER-MAN and THE FANTASTIC FOUR, all scripted by the one and only STAN LEE - all in one comic for only 5p.
