STAR WARS STRIKES! PART FOUR OF 'POT LUCK' MARVEL COVER GALLERY...
STAR WARS copyright relevant owner
Here we are again with a humongous helping of cavortin' covers
from the halcyon days of MightyMARVEL's U.K. publications on sale
in the '70s and '80s. Does the sight of them bring a tear to your eye as you
recall the long-ago days of your youth when most of your life lay before
you as opposed to behind you? Same goes for me, effendi!
In some ways, there was no real point to most of Marvel's British out-
put back in the early '80s, because U.S. comics were freely available and
still relatively inexpensive. Nowadays, PANINI's collected editions are
what British Marvel mags should have been, but sadly weren't.
However, that said, and although I was buying them mostly out of
habit by that time, it's good to see again the covers from these mags that
hold so many memories of the dim and distant days of my youth. They say
you can't go home again, but sometimes you can catch enough of a glimpse
of it to temporarily satiate your longing for a taste of an earlier and
happier period from your past.
What memories do these mags hold for you, frantic ones? Feel
entirely free to reminisce in our captivating comments section.
