THE THING IS BIG BEN COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PART ONE...
It lasted a mere 18 issues before being merged with SPIDER-MAN #595 (a U.K. weekly), but way back in 1984, The THING Is BIG BEN hit the shelves of newsagents across Britain. The main Thing stories were taken from MARVEL TWO-In-ONE, and back-up strips came in the form of IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA - plus the zany DONALD DOGFLY by the talented HUNT EMERSON.
To be honest, Donald was probably the best strip in the mag, and it's a shame it only appeared in the first dozen issues before being consigned to comic strip limbo. Time for a comeback I think - where are you, Donald? While I'm waiting for him to reply, the rest of you can get on with appreciating all the lovely piccies I've generously bestowed upon you. Don't forget to return for the second instalment.
(Incidentally, I've still got the free gifts which came with the first two issues [none in the third], but can I remember where I put them? [The answer's no, in case you were wondering.] Whenever I find them, I'll add them to this post - but that could be a long, long time.)
UPDATE: Here's the free gift from #1 -
I'll add the one from #2 when I dig it out.
