KID'S KLASSIC KOMIC KOVERS - MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #1...
This one has a convoluted history, so let's see if I can explain
it coherently. MARVEL SUPER-HEROES #1 was a one-shot
tie-in to the cartoon series that was on U.S. TV at the time. Later,
after 11 issues, FANTASY MASTERPIECES changed it's name
to Marvel Super-Heroes, which lasted until #105 in 1981/'82.
Therefore, if you possess #s 1 & 12 of this comic and have
vainly sought for #s 2-11, you can now relax - they don't exist!
On a personal note, I first got this issue at a church jumble sale on
Saturday 7th October 1972 - the very same day that The MIGHTY
WORLD Of MARVEL #2 went on sale. The one you see above is
a replacement, as I didn't keep my original copy. (The previous
owner had used it as a dartboard and it was full of holes.)
If you recall this comic, feel free to wax lyrical about it in the
comments section. Free therapy - what more do you want?
