CAPTAIN BRITAIN COVER, SPLASH PAGE & IMAGE GALLERY - PART ELEVEN...
As I've said a million times (at least) before, it's amazing how
our perception of time seems different at various stages through our
lives. Case in point: The above periodical came out a mere four years,
eight months after my purchase of The FANTASTIC FOUR #126
on Friday 6th October 1972. Nowadays, to me, such a period passes
(yes, here it comes) faster than a fart from The FLASH, but back
in 1977, a huge gulf seemed to exist between the two dates.
The reason why FF #126 now springs to mind is because the
first part of the tale was reprinted in CAPTAIN BRITAIN #35,
and glad I was to see it again, even in black and white. I've now got
three pristine replacements of the FF mag, but CB's reprint of it
resonates in my memory just as much as its original printing.
Anyway, I'm sure you don't visit this blog to read the piffle that I
write ('though feel free to disagree and tell me you hang on my every
word), so I'll give my typing finger a rest and let you now consume the
cataclysmic covers and comic pages that lay before you. If any fond
memories of your distant youth resurface as you peruse these pul-
sating panels, feel free to share them in the comments section.
After all, what's the point in keeping them to yourself?
