In just over a fortnight, it will be (gasp) forty years since MIGHTY
MARVEL unleashed their brand-new frantic fan club upon the waiting
world. Those who became a Friend Of Ol' Marvel back in February
1973 received various goodies along with the first ever issue of FOOM
magazine. There was a giant-sized poster by JIM STERANKO, a half
dozen or so FOOM labels, and a gold-backed membership card, which
all came in a specially designed envelope featuring the HULK.
For those who weren't lucky enough to be around at the time, or
who weren't smart enough to hold onto their own classic collectable
kit, here's a pictorial presentation of what was included. You can
see the cover of the first magazine by clicking here.
