THE TITANS COVER GALLERY - PART FIVE...
So, what can I say about The TITANS that I haven't already
said or that you don't already know? Nothing, actually, apart from
the fact that I'm surprised, looking back, to note that it lasted for just
over a year. In keeping with quite a few other titles of their time (like
FANTASTIC, TERRIFIC, SUPER DC, The CRUNCH, etc.), it
seems, in memory, to have been a more significant feature of my
life and around for longer than it actually was. Strange, eh?
However, we're not here to ponder that particular paradox
('though you can if you want to), but to go on a whistle-stop tour
of nine issues of what was supposed to be MARVEL's flagship title
in their fleet of British weeklies back in the 1970s. Like I said in an
earlier post, I feel that, had just a little more care and attention been
lavished on The Titans (and that goes for some of the other comics
too), then it may well have lasted for longer than the 58 issues it
managed to hang on for.
But that's enough pontificating from me, you'll be glad to
hear. Now it's time to lose yourself in the pretty pictures that
follow. Don't hog them all to yourself now - leave a space and
let other Criv-ites cop a gander as well.
