PART FOUR OF MARVEL'S THE SUPER-HEROES COVER & IMAGE GALLERY...


Images copyright MARVEL COMICS

A power-packed plethora of pulse-pounding pictures awaits your gaze,
frantic ones, in this latest pulsating part of The SUPER-HEROES cover
and image gallery.  As you can see from the above piccie, the final issue of
The SILVER SURFER's original U.S. mag was printed out of sequence
for some reason, perhaps just to get it out of the way as it was by far
the weakest tale of the 18 issue run.  (In my view anyway.)

So once again, it's time to return to the sizzlin' '70s and live again the
heady days of your youth - if you were alive at the time, of course.  Even
if you weren't, join us on the journey and see what kind of comics excited
those of us who were kids or teenagers back then.  Mighty MARVEL
Magnificence at its very best - and all for only 8p per week.

I'm really pleased that you post all these in-house ads as well as the splash pages in your Marvel UK series. It's almost like going through the actual comics in reality. Can't wait for the monthlies to arrive over here!!

I wonder how many issues never arrived and how many disappointed kids there were back in the day? And, nowadays, the only way to get American mags is through comicbook stores instead of newsagents. Ah, how times change (and, in some ways, stay the same).

Ha - I fondly remember those POTA and Star Trek action figures, I had quite a few of those - do you have any of them in your vast collection, Kid ? And if not, why not ??? I bought that Conan treasury Edition while on holiday at the seaside in August 1977 along with the 1974 Thor Treasury Edition - I remember that I started talking to a girl who seemed interested in my Conan TE so I lent it to her to read and then for some reason I went away and when I came back she had it rolled up and was whacking other kids over the head with it - she did sheepishly apologize but the TE was in a state. This same girl pushed my sister into the swimming pool and my sister was crying and wailing but then they both became great friends for the rest of our holiday - girls !!

You lent a GIRL a comic?! What were you thinking of, CJ? I hope you pushed her into the pool (when there was no water in it) for damaging your TE. I wasn't really buying toys (apart from the very occasional one) in the '70s, but I bought the reissued Kirk and Spock Mego figures a few years ago.

Let me tell you something, - you can't trust girls, right! When I was little, a girl round the corner showed an interest iny toy soldiers, so I let her play with them with me. After that, I couldn't find one of my Germans. Anyway, the next time we were playing, I caught her sneaking another soldier into her pocket inside her tightly-grasped thieving little fist and I prized it off her. I told her mum that she had stolen one of my Germans, but she denied it and the mother wouldn't have it and I never did get that soldier back! So NEVER trust a girl with your stuff!!

Kid said...

It's not just your toys they steal, JP - they take all your money when they divorce you. (B*tches!)

Phil said...

Do newsagents still exist? Most of those old time corner stands you see in movies in New York are gone.

Kid said...

Dunno about New York, Phil, but we still have newsagents in Britain. None sell American comicbooks anymore 'though, and a large percentage of them are run by Pakistanis. Maybe they're good at wringing a profit from what is essentially a declining tradition.
