And now, from the vaults of history (and a box in my cupboard)
comes another six sensational, classic covers - plus their back page
pin-ups - from that perfect POWER PACK publication from the swingin'
'60s - the frighteningly-fearless, fabulous FANTASTIC. All hail to ALF,
BART, and COS, Britain's bombastic stand-ins for STAN, JACK,
and, er...IRVING FORBUSH.
Ah, I only have to gaze upon these pulsating pictures by KIRBY, HECK,
ROTH, and SMITH to once again (in my mind's eye) be merrily frolicking
back in the heady, halcyon days of my childhood, when the world was a
better place and I thought I would be a boy forever. Chances are, you
did too - unless you're a girl, that is.
So come with me now - on a journey back to when the world seemed
fresh and new, and wonders aplenty were aborning each and every week
in the palpitating pages of Britain's Brightest Superhero Comic. There
is - there can be - simply no other word for it - it's - FANTASTIC.
Don't forget to tune in again for future instalments
in this Fantastic series.
