HAPPY EASTER TO ALL 'KID-ITES'...
As Good Friday is upon us, it's only fitting to present you with an Easter-themed treat. We therefore unveil the April 13th (dated 20th) 1968
issue of one of Britain's best-loved comics of the past - SMASH! At this time, Smash! was publishing MARVELand DC strips within its pages - namely, DAREDEVIL and BATMAN & ROBIN. I've included the first pages of
each strip to give those who weren't around at the time an idea of how the
pages were resized to fit the dimensions of a British weekly comic.
Also on view are THE SWOTS & THE BLOTS, RONNIE RICH,
and GRIMLY FEENDISH - and that's only a small selection of what
was on offer in this great issue. Weren't around in 1968, eh? See what
