BLIMEY! THE THING IS BIG BEN COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PART FIVE...
As I trot tantalisingly about town spreading joy and happiness
amongst my fellow Caledonians (by virtue of my fair and friendly
countenance and beaming disposition), I still sometimes can't help but
wonder if I do enough to alleviate all the pain and suffering in this wide
world and whether it might just be possible to do more. Then I remember
this bombastic blog and realise what a herculean effort I put into making
this planet a far better place, and feel foolish for doubting my awesome
altruism. In fact, I get so embarrassed about being such a wonderful
person, that I very often feel like punching an orphan just to
attain some kind of balance in my life.
Anyway, enough of the problems of veritable sainthood - you're
not concerned with such minor matters, I'm sure. Instead, let's focus
on the final four issues of MARVEL U.K.'s weekly periodical from the
mid-'80s, THE THING IS BIG BEN, which shuffled off this mortal
coil with its 18th issue. I've also included the Summer Special to
complete the collection, as I just can't help but give, give, give!
('Scuse me while I polish my halo.)
So, all you cavortin' Criv-ites, I've done my part, 'tis now time
for you to do yours - by savouring the varied visuals which I've laid
out before you. Should you then wish to leave a comment thanking me
for my genial generosity and bountiful benevolence, I'll read them with
my customary modesty at what a super human being I happen to be.
Although, it's hard to be humble when you're as magnificent as I
am, as I'm sure you can all appreciate.
