THE EXPLOITS OF SPIDER-MAN COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PART THREE...
Well now, lookee here - another cataclysmic clutch of colourful
comics covers and images from The EXPLOITS Of SPIDER-MAN,
published by MARVEL U.K. back in the early '90s. As related in our first
instalment, it took me over 21 years to acquire #5, which seems to be quite
rare. Not only didn't I see it back in '93, but I've only ever seen it available on
eBay on two occasions in all the time I've been specifically hunting it. A BBC
children's programme called 'TAKE TWO', hosted by SARAH GREENE,
filmed the production of number 5 and broadcast it to the nation (as related
in the issue itself), so maybe that accounts for why it was so difficult to
get back in the day - perhaps it sold out with all the heightened
awareness that the programme generated.
Guess I'll never know for sure - not that it matters much now that I
finally have the issue in my collection. So join me in celebration of the
happy union and paste your peepers on all these pulse-pounding pages.
Just think - a 100 page, full-colour monthly mag for only £1.99 -
wouldn't it be great if they could do that now?!
Remember to come back for part four - coming soon!
(Or whenever I find the time to get around to it.)
