PART SIX OF THE CRUNCH COVER GALLERY...
It's a dreich day outside, but luxuriating in the interior warmth
of CASTEL ROBSONO, I've decided to persevere with presenting
THE CRUNCH Cover Gallery. There hasn't been much interest in
this series to be completely honest, but, taking my cue from the late
MAGNUS MAGNUSSON (and JOHN HUMPHRIES), I'm deter-
mined to finish what I started several posts back.
The majority of these comics have survived pretty well for having
been stored in an old cheese box for 35-plus years. Only a few have
some age spots, which makes me wonder why some comics in the same
bundle exhibit the passage of time and others don't. I've got two cheese
boxes, which I got back in 1975 when I worked in a CO-OP shop just
down the road from me, and they're very sturdy and robust, having
originally housed huge, single blocks of cheddar in each one.
In case you're interested, the second box is home to my complete
collection of MIGHTY TV COMIC, plus a few other odds'n'sods,
like MARVEL U.K. POCKET BOOKS and OOR WULLIE and
THE BROONS Holiday Specials.
Anyway, in the absence of anything illuminating about The Crunch
to write about, the above preamble has filled a bit of a space, so now
let's get down to the nitty-gritty - the covers themselves. And should
you feel like making a comment, then don't let anything stop you.
