PART EIGHT OF 'POT LUCK' MARVEL COVER GALLERY...
Above is the first, last and only MWOM Special, from 1983,
which is the same year that the second volume of the title was launched
on an unsuspecting public. True, There had been a MARVEL SUPER-
HEROES Special in 1979 (which we saw in the previous instalment),
which had sprung from a later incarnation of the comic, but this was
the only one ever to bear the original name.
The mag below came out at the same time as the Marvel one,
but the subsequent covers actually pre-date these two. However,
how could I not start this post with that painted eye-grabber above?
The interior poster was a glossy centrespread of the cover art, sans logo
and lettering. (I bought another copy from a back issue shop by the
name of WONDERWORLD in Southsea in 1985, and the poster
has adorned one of my walls ever since then.)
Okay, that'll do you for now (no point in being greedy) - see
you in the next power-packed part of this sensational series.
