still looked much the same as it had in years gone by. If you were a
movie-maker, with the addition of a few appropriate props and actors
dressed in period attire, it wouldn't have been too difficult to transfor it
into a train station from a bygone era. It was on the counter of a suitably
old-fashioned newsagent's kiosk on the station platform in 1982 that I
first clapped eyes on MARVEL TALES #138, featuring a reprint of
SPIDER-MAN #1. I bought it right away of course. And thus,
for me, the Marvel Age of Comics had returned!
