SMASH! COVER GALLERY - PART FIVE...
I'd imagine that American readers aren't much interested in U.K.
comics they've never read (or even heard of), but British readers of a
certain age are bound to get a big thrill at seeing the covers of one of the
fondly-remembered comics of their childhood - SMASH! Looking again
at these covers takes me back to an earlier era, and I'm sure I'm not the
only one who finds himself recalling days of long ago as 'though they
were only yesterday upon sight of these images from the 1960s.
At 40 pages per issue, with each page containing twice the content
of a U.S. comicbook, Smash! was certainly great value for money at
a mere 7d (about 3 and a half pence in decimal currency). If only such
days could come again, and Great Britain could once more revel in a
thriving comics industry, as opposed to the rather lacklustre
remnant we have today.
Got any thoughts on the matter? Or any personal reminiscences
about Smash! (like wistful recollections of a specific cover)? Then
the Criv-ites comments section is waiting to hear from you. Come
on now - don't be shy!
