MARVEL SUPERHEROES COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PROLOGUE...
As a little taste of what's in store, here's a teaser for an upcoming
cover gallery I'm planning. I no longer have every issue of MARVEL
SUPERHEROES, but I have enough to get a few posts out of them. Take
a look at THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF MARVEL feature by DEZ
SKINN somewhere below. The cover to MWOM #1 appears to have been
reproduced from an actual published comic (as does the centrespread), but,
interestingly, it bears the legend Reg TM and (c) Marvel Comics Group
1972, whereas the copies I have all say Reg TM and (c) 1972 Magazine
Management London Ltd. So was the one available to Dez for his
article a 'dummy', or one from an early try-out printing which was
changed at some stage before the finished comic was published?
Another one of life's little mysteries to puzzle
and perplex us. Anyone know the answer?
